The life of an entrepreneur is a busy one and schedules often feels impossible. There are no shortcuts and many sleepless nights so it’s important that you’re able to keep your energy levels up. We all know that sick bodies aren’t very productive, so to avoid getting to that point where you break down, here are a few ways to keep your energy high throughout the day.

Cut back on the carbs throughout the day. Too many carbs drain your energy! Try replacing all of that rice, bread, and yam with more protein. If that’s too challenging for you, reduce the portion sizes and spread them throughout your meals.

Move your coffee/tea breaks to later in the afternoon. Research shows you’re more likely to feel sleepy in the afternoon. Instead of having that burst of caffeine first thing in the morning, try having it in the afternoon when your sleepiness kicks in to give you a kick of energy.

Keep moving. Staying glued to one spot for hours will reduce your ability to stay alert. Keep moving, stand up, walk around, and let oxygen flow through your body. Stretch!

Workout. The thought of working out may seem stressful and tiring but it actually does the opposite for you. Working out will rejuvenate your body and give you the energy you need to have a productive day. It doesn’t have to be intense and can be as simple as a 30 minute walk.

Have healthy snacks. Protein and fiber rich snacks will help the blood sugar boost to last longer. Nuts, high-fiber cereal, hemp seeds, coconut, and dark chocolate chips are a good idea!

Get some natural light. Try having your lunch outdoors or near a window. Research suggests that adequate amounts of vitamin D may play a role in sustaining energy. Sunshine helps boost your levels of vitamin D, and is suggested to potentially help regulate metabolism and insulin secretion which both impact energy.

These are just a few quick tips out of many that will help your days remain energy filled! Busy days are a part of life so it is best we face each day equipped and ready to face the challenges ahead. This means we may have to make some lifestyle and eating adjustments to ensure our bodies are well fed and ready to rumble.
