With the fall comes shorter days, earlier bedtimes for those in school – and, for many families, fatigue. Fortunately, Prevention
Magazine has just published
some body-friendly pick-me-ups that can help us all get through the day.
Among their tips:
- Eat a breakfast rich in fiber. It’s filling, and it has been shown to help reduce fatigue and improve cognitive skills.
- Snack smartly. Munching on snacks rich in protein and good fats keeps your blood sugar steady, so you avoid an energy crash.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Keeping a glass of water handy – and drinking it – is a great way to wake your body up when you’re feeling tired.
- Take a quick brisk walk. Studies have shown this increases energy and leads to clearer thinking.
