Feeling a little bit of the weather blahs? Dragging yourself out of bed and wanting a little more pep in your step? If so – try Dr. Joey’s 4 energy boosting tips that really work!
- Drink 2 litres of water per day. Add some energy boosting mint chlorophyll, vitamin C and vitamin D drops to your water daily. Click here for Dr. Joey’s power water recipe.
- Working at a desk job? You need to get up and move each hour to get the blood flowing and your energy up. Try to also engage in cardiovascular exercise (run, walk, swim) at least 3x per week.
- Drop all processed sugars and grains – they are energy zappers and are a one way ticket to belly fat storage! Stick to non GMO whole grains and naturally sweetened foods such as berries and oranges.
- Look at your sleep habits. For optimal sleep and restorative function – sleep in a completely dark room, do not have any electronics by your bed and sleep in a room that is on the cooler side.
