Do you feel like you used to be full of energy but now you’ve just lost it? Would you like to get home and do something other than throwing yourself onto the couch?
Feeling energyless is more common than you think
Lacking energy often causes us to feel groggy and can sometimes even keep us from having a proper conversation. If you’ve already talked to your nutritionist, or tried to find a solution but nothing seems to be working, you might want to realize that feeling good does not just depend on food and exercise.
Nutrition and exercise is not enough
These two factors are obviously crucial, and you should never forget about them. However, your nutrition and work out are but two tools. In the sense that if you were to bake a cake, food and exercise would only be two ingredients inside a whole list of them. So, although you couldn’t bake a cake without the two, you also wouldn’t be able to bake one without the rest of the ingredients.
Explained with numbers
Number-wise, one workout can be for example between 15 and 30 minutes long, and eating would take up around 1 to 3 hours daily. In other words, it just makes up between 3 and 4 hours of daily energy optimization. Unfortunately, the other 12 hours of being awake are empty.
The solution to this lack of energy is optimizing your whole day for energy, which unfortunately depends on the person. This is not one of them “one size fits all” things. So it’s important you find what best suits you. A solution would be having a custom tailored plan made that fits your schedule.
Finding the cause and the right solution
The important thing is that you discover what best suits you. Problems causing lack of energy often include things like too much pressure, no self-care, a low sleep quality, not working out enough (or even too much) and not eating the right food suited for your body.
The problem is that we try to find solutions in things that are really not helping us, like for example coffee, supplements, energy drinks or nootropics.
