If you have been feeling tired, run down, or maybe have been enjoying the summer a little too much, it is important to give your body the best chance you can to get back into stride.
The best place to start with increasing energy levels is sleep. Not only do we need to make sure we get enough of it – it has to be good quality and regular. Hours of sleep cannot be gained or stored unfortunately, and it takes more to try catch up than would be needed otherwise. Good quality sleep is signalled by falling asleep in reasonable time and staying asleep almost entirely throughout the advised seven to nine hours. Good sleep is encouraged by avoiding caffeine, staying hydrated, and allowing time before bed for you to switch off, meaning no television or sitting in bed on your phone.
Although a good night’s sleep is the best way to feel energised (alongside an active lifestyle and good diet of course ), everyone has late nights. If you want a pick-me-up, whether it is due to enjoying the long summer evenings, or coming down with a summer time cold, or because you are stressed, Nature’s Plus Source of Life Gold is an amazing supplement to give you that kick-start. This is a jam packed product, with a huge variety of energy promoting ingredients including a great level of B vitamins – particularly important if alcohol has been involved as it could encourage the body to flush these water soluble vitamins out.
