  • Exhausted? 9 Ways to Boost Energy Levels - Do more Ibaadah!!!

    From Dr. Axe

    1. Vegetable Juice

    green vegetable juice Drinking fresh vegetable juice is a shock to your body — in a good way! Losing the fiber during juicing makes them easy for your body to absorb and digest. And because less work is required for your body to reap the nutritional benefits, you’ll notice an increase in energy. Additionally, drinking your veggies helps eliminate toxins from the body while also feeding your cells.

    If you feel an illness coming on, vegetable juice is also a good way to stop it in its tracks and keep energy up before it dips. Pass over store-bought juices, which are often loaded with sugar, preservatives, and other unpronounceable ingredients — they’ll leave you feeling worse and more exhausted! Make your own instead, or if you need ideas, try some of my favorite vegetable juice recipes.

    2. Better Quality Sleep

    Spending your nights tossing and turning can definitely make you feel exhausted the next day. While you sleep, your body is restoring and repairing the day’s damage. Additionally, adenosine, a by-product of cell activity that’s produced by the body, is believed to be a favor in humans’ perception of being tired. Adenosine builds up during the day but, during sleep, our bodies clear it from our systems, helping us feel alert.

    If you’re having trouble sleeping, try some of my favorite tips:

    Keep a consistent sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same times each day, including weekends. This will help regulate your internal body clock.

    Eliminate caffeine after 3 p.m. — the effects can last up to 12 hours.

    Write out what’s stressing you out or keeping you up at night before heading to bed.

    3. Reduce Carb Consumption

    Bread and Carbs, different kinds of bread loaves While they do provide your body with energy, foods heavy in carbohydrates can leave you feeling sluggish. The main culprit? Simple carbs, like those found in sugary drinks, cookies, and processed foods (think white bread and pasta), which burn through your body quickly. Though they provide a fast boost of energy, it’s quickly followed by a crash as your blood sugar spikes and then drops.

    The solution? Stick to whole-grain, low-glycemic carbohydrates that take the body longer to digest and avoid the crash and burn effect. Nuts, legumes, sweet potatoes, oats, and brown rice are all low-glycemic carbohydrates that will provide the body with a steady supply of energy.

    4. Eat Chia Seeds

    Chia SeedsIf your only experience with Chia seeds is the Chia pet, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. These little seeds will boost energy levels and provide your body with a lot of nutritional bang for the buck.

    The essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) found in Chia seeds help regulate glands, fight adrenal fatigue, and combat inflammation, which keeps your body feeling fresh. Combined with high levels of protein and fiber, which keep blood sugar stable (no afternoon sugar crashes!), and it’s no wonder chia seeds are being heralded as a superfood.

    5. Stay Hydrated with Water and Electrolytes

    Pouring Water into glassDid you know that one of the first signs of dehydration is feeling tired or exhausted? That’s right – not drinking enough water could be the reason your energy levels are lacking and you feel exhausted. Because our bodies are made up of mostly water, even small dips in H2O levels are enough to affect your metabolism.

    Stay hydrated by making sure you’re drinking enough water and other fluids throughout the day. The Institute of Medicine suggests about 9 cups of fluids a day for women and 13 cups for men.

    However a more accurate amount is take your body weight and divide it in half, then drink that many ounces per day, plus more if you workout, are really active, are pregnant, nursing, or are fighting an illness or disease.

    If that sounds like a lot, remember that many foods, like fruits and vegetables, contain water as well.

    If you have an intense workout, you might want to supplement water with a drink that helps replace the electrolytes your body is sweating out. Forget sports drinks loaded with high fructose corn syrup and additives. Opt for coconut water or water naturally flavored with lemon and honey instead.

    6. B Vitamins

    B Vitamins, supplements Also known as the “energy vitamin,” B12 is the most complex of all vitamins. It supports thyroid function and keeps blood cells happy and healthy. If you’re vitamin B12 deficient, one of the first signs can be lower energy levels.

    Because it’s a water-soluble vitamin, your body cannot store extra amounts of B12 and relies on getting the vitamin from the foods you eat or supplements. Try one of these top 10 vitamin B12 foods to restore your B12 levels when they’re depleted.

    7. Herbal Teas

    green tea, Herbal teaCoffee isn’t the only option when you need a pick-me-up. Sipping on an herbal tea can provide an all-natural temporary boost in energy levels without the risk of scary stimulants or processed ingredients.

    Two wonderful options are green tea and rooibos tea. Green tea has many benefits to your body such as anti-aging and fighting free radicals. It is loaded with catechin, an antioxidant that helps fight damage in the body’s cell. If you’re looking for a wonderful green tea, I love matcha.

    Rooibos tea is another type of tea that’ll fight fatigue. Made from South Africa’s red bush plant, this refreshing red tea is packed with antioxidants including aspalathin, an antioxidant that regulates the adrenal hormones, helping to reduce stress and keep energy levels high.

    8. Peppermint Essential Oil

    Peppermint essential oilIf you need an easy way to stimulate your mind and increase focus, peppermint oil might be what you’re looking for. Commonly used in aromatherapy, this refreshing essential oil increases oxygen to the brain, which heightens focus and stimulates the mind.

    Try dabbing a few drops on your wrists when you find your energy lagging, add some to your shower to get an early morning energy boost, or add several drops to a steam diffuser to breathe in the benefits throughout the day.

    9. Daily Exercise

    Are you wiped out after a tough workout? Take solace in the fact that incorporating regular exercise into your routine will actually boost energy levels. Torching calories and engaging in physical activity sends oxygen and nutrients to your body’s cells, helping your heart and lungs work more efficiently and boosting energy levels.

    And remember, you don’t need to run a marathon to get the benefits — moderate levels of your favorite fitness activity will reap energy benefits, too.

      Very good observation! I would've never caught it. However, I would like to add that The Food and Drug Administration allows many additives that have been positively correlated with certain cancers (such as the use of nitrates and nitrites with colon cancer). Just a note

        I have tried most of these and nothing seems to help me regain energy long term. Anyone know of a solution? I'll have random spurts of energy for like a couple of days to even a week, but I am quite often tired throughout the day, and even sleepy. It may be due to anemia but I am not sure. Anyone have any more tips? I've tried to increase my caffeine intake with little avail.

            I actually have thought about it a lot and I have had low iron levels when I was younger, so there is a huge possibility. Unfortunately, I have a horrendous habit of not going to the doctor unless my signs and symptoms are debilitating. May Allah SWT forgive me.

              I know, we all are guilty of avoiding doctors,lol...
              It's good to have time to time blood test, and see what is going on, and adjust accordingly. As our body is amana from Allah SWT. Alhamdulillah.
              Try to incorporate some dark green vegetables in your daily diet.

              May Allah SWT bestow you with good health, Ameen.

                    That's quite possible but without regulations and oversight from Institutions like the FDA, quacks who scam people with 'magic miracle' advice can be minimized.

                          i've had the same problem for awhile too. always tired, sleepy, exhausted. i then read about lactic acid buildup in muscles can make you feel this way. one of the supplements that supposedly combats this is beta alanine. after some research, i picked up the optimum nutrition beta alanine and gave it a try. holy wow! i feel re-energized, no muscle aches, even in morning i just jump out of bed with no aches. read the reviews for it on amazon. this stuff works. it does cause a tingly sensation at first, but apparently its not harmful. google and read up on beta alanine!

                            I hate to say but it could be bigger than you think hun - you could be gluten intolerant, anaemic, insulin resistant, or your thyroid even... rather have it checked out... better safe than sorry :love:
                            “Mu'min” is more that just a title. It is to have Imaan established in the heart and testified to by the limbs.

                              I don't really exercise to have lactic acid build up. However, considering I don't eat a lot of meat products, the amino acids might actually help, I'll think about it! I've never heard of this supplement so thank you for the information
