Low energy levels could have some hidden causes. Here are some things to watch for.
- An iron deficiency - Foods that can up your iron include meat, beans and cereals and vitamin C can promote the absorption of iron.
- Allergies - An allergy can cause a lack of energy.
- Poor sleep - Not getting enough sleep can zap energy levels. It is important to get eight hours of sleep but this sleep should also be uninterupted. If you're having trouble sleeping try exercising during the day. Be sure not to exercise right before you go to bed.
- Low blood sugar - Be sure to eat a proper breakfast in the morning because When you wake up your body has a burst of energy which requires fueling. To keep your blood sugar level through out the day, eat smaller meals and healthier snacks every few hours and also eat before you feel hungry.
- Avoid too many carbs and sugary foods like sodas and candy.
- To boost your energy in the middle of that long work day, try taking a 15 minute walk. Fresh air and sunshine will also help.
- Be sure you drink water. Dehydration can really zap your energy
