5 Tips to More Energy
If the winter blues are dragging down your spirit and making hibernation an easy option, get your energy back with Andrea Metcalf's five tips to lift your mood and vitality.
Eat a Snack in the Afternoon
Between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m., your energy levels naturally drop due to the rise and fall of the sun and your hormonal response. These circadian rhythms can make you feel tired and hungry. To keep your diet on track and boost your energy, try a snack with protein and carbohydrates, such as an apple with peanut butter or a small yogurt. You'll find a light snack with less than 200 calories will make a big difference in how you perform and feel throughout the rest of the day.
