Energy Builders

E

Last week I talked about how energy is important. For me there are a few key things which seem to help energise me.

Sleep

If you really don’t know but having the correct amount of sleep is maybe one of the most important things you can do to energise yourself.

That means about seven to eight hours a night.

For me it’s less per night as I have a nap early afternoon. Part of that is because I work evenings and naps allow me to operate on a full nights sleep even if it looks like I don’t.

That and naps keep my energy up when working said late evenings.

Exercise

For me I find that my morning dog walk, which is about two klicks going on two and a half, going as fast as I can (slower now it’s dark out) helps me.

Also I do push ups as soon after waking as I can.

Fuelling Food

There’s lots out there about food and what’s good and bad so it’s hard to get a clear answer about what’s good and healthy.

For me I find that reducing the amount of processed carbs and sugars, eating gluten free, and having healthy fats seems to work best for me (right now).

Hydrate

I aim to drink between 1 to 2 litres of water a day (filtered with extra minerals added). I also avoid sugar water: that is any drinks with a high sugar content including fizzy (soda), squash, and fruit juices (no matter how pure).
