I’m of­ten fa­tigued, and I’m look­ing for an en­ergy booster. What do you rec­om­mend?

Health & Nutrition - - SELF CARE -

If you rou­tinely find your­self in an en­ergy cri­sis, you might need some­thing more than a quick-fix en­ergy booster. Be­fore you reach for an­other cup of cof­fee or an en­ergy drink, look at your sleep habits. If you’re not get­ting about seven hours of good qual­ity sleep each night, you might have a sleep dis­or­der. Con­sider your eat­ing habits, too. A health­ful diet can be a good en­ergy booster, while a poor one can leave you feel­ing tired. Avoid ex­cess sugar from sweets and pro­cessed foods. Eat break­fast to get your body off to a good start each day. Fill your diet with lean pro­tein sources (e.g lean meats, fish, and nuts), com­plex car­bo­hy­drates from whole grains, brown rice, beans and other legumes, and whole fruits and veg­eta­bles.
