Di­eti­tian and sports nu­tri­tion­ist Rob­bie Clark is the co-founder of tele­health plat­form Health­bank, which con­nects well­ness pros and pa­tients on­line. Need a boost? Score more en­ergy with his tips:

1 Aim for nu­tri­ents your body needs for en­ergy pro­duc­tion and me­tab­o­lism: mag­ne­sium (legumes, nuts, seeds, raw co­coa), B vi­ta­mins (wheat­germ, egg yolk, mush­rooms, fish, meat), coen­zyme Q10 (cauliflower, broc­coli) and iron (lean red meat, leafy green veg­eta­bles, whole grains).

2 Pick low gly­caemic in­dex (GI) car­bo­hy­drates. This helps re­duce spikes and drops in your blood sugar, which can lead to ir­ri­tabil­ity and hunger. 3 The top symp­tom of de­hy­dra­tion? Fa­tigue. Drink plenty of wa­ter.

Also move, sleep and man­age stress.
