Energy crash, which often appears after having lunch, is a natural way for the body to prepare to rest at the end of the day. But there are ways to prevent it by using these following tips (if you always feel tired, talk to your professional healthcare provider).
Your day starts with breakfast, but it’s ideal to get a perfect balance. Having too much for breakfast will cause your blood sugar levels to fluctuate, resulting in an afternoon crash, while not having any breakfast causes hunger and also results in an afternoon crash. So, have a mix of carbohydrates and proteins, for example oatmeals with an egg, to prevent the afternoon energy crash. If you do not have time to make breakfast in the morning, prepare it the night before.
A small snack between breakfast and lunch keeps your body energized. To prevent blood sugar fluctuation, eat something that is no more than 200 calories and avoid excess sugar and fats. Whole grains mixed with proteins is recommended. Try a handful of nuts or a slice of whole grain toast with peanut butter.
Drink water. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily keeps your body functioning properly. Your body slows downs and energy levels drop if you are dehydrated. A good option is to include tea or coffee, do not over consume, 200-300 milligrams of caffeine a day is recommended to prevent trouble sleeping. Avoid sugary drinks.
