When You’re Feeling Tired During The Day.. Exercise!

How many people a day rely on a caffeine fix or a quick nap to battle fatigue during the day? Have you ever thought of working out instead? One series of studies— with a total of almost 5,000 participants over the course of 60 years— found an eye-opening connection between exercise and a reduced risk of low energy and exhaustion. Exercise encourages the heart and lungs to deliver oxygen and nutrients to tissue and facilitates the circulation of blood, possibly leading to greater energy levels. Sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain, while excessive exercise can also work against us by increasing the risk of stress fractures, cardiovascular complications, or simply feeling burned out. So you want to balance your sleep and exercise schedules correctly.

This type of exercise doesn’t have to be intense either, a light aerobic work out will be just fine for a great pick me up to help us  through the day!

  1. Some exercise, even light, is the best way to get that energy level up. I try to do some type of work out when I get home from work and am tired. This helps motivate me to do some cooking.
