Due to the busy lives many of us lead, lots of people report feeling tired and drained on a regular basis. Often, this fatigue is a result of lifestyle choices, in which case you can try a variety of things to improve this.
That’s why Studio Pulse Wynnum – the ultimate pilates and reformer pilates expert in Queensland, has come up with the following list of tricks you can try to give your energy levels a boost.
So, read on to find out how to say ‘goodbye’ to fatigue and increase energy levels naturally:
Get Enough Sleep
First and foremost, sleep deprivation is one of the most common side effects of a busy lifestyle. People are constantly trying to keep work, family, and social life on track which is often easier to do with a little less sleep. However, this lack of sleep results in tiredness and feeling drained. Something that people underestimate is how exercise can improve your sleep. Even just a 30-minute session of reformer pilates for instance will help you to get a good night’s sleep.
Another efficient way to boost your energy levels is by reducing stress levels. Again, people with busy lifestyles often go through periods of feeling anxious and overworked. So, if you’ve been experiencing episodes of low concentration, racing thoughts, and breathing difficulties, you may be experiencing stress, which can not only affect your mind but your physical health too.
So, in order to improve your energy levels, trying to avoid stress can help – easier said than done we know. However, one of the most popular stress-relieving activities is exercise. Luckily, at Studio Pulse, we offer a great range classes to suit your needs and time-constraints.
Without a shadow of a doubt, we are all aware of how regular exercise is important for our physical health. But, being active is actually as equally important for our mental health – especially if you lead a relatively sedentary lifestyle. You may be thinking, I’m not fit enough yet to take up any intense exercise activities, however, low-intensity workouts will do just fine. Indeed, all you need to do is contact our team and find out which class best suits your needs and fitness levels.
You probably already know that our bodies are made of 55 – 75% water, depending on your age. So it’s no surprise that hydration plays an important role in brain function, mood, and energy. Also, since we lose water via sweat and urine daily, we must make up for this loss and drink enough water to stay hydrated. Otherwise, if our body is dehydrated our energy levels will immediately drop and make us feel drained. So, make sure to drink enough water throughout the day, not only when you’re in your reformer pilates class and exercising but throughout the day as well.
Last but not least, being social is crucial for maintaining a good mood and balanced mental health. On the other hand, if you are socially isolated you are at a higher risk of suffering from low mood. In order to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, join up to Studio Pulse Wynnum to stay social, active and maintain healthy sleeping habits.
