The holidays are over and the cold winter months are ahead of us. For some, this means feeling lethargic, lazy and having to fight the winter blues. BUT… it doesn’t have to be this way! You can feel vibrant, energetic and happy this winter and NutriChem wants to help you with these 6 vital tips:
1) Check your Vitamin D levels
With the lack of sun, some of us might become deficient in vitamin D. The "sunshine vitamin" (which is actually a hormone) is extremely important for mood and energy. Get your levels tested and stock-up on NutriChem’s D-Best Vitamin D3.
A good night’s rest will allow your body to re-energize itself. So many of us tend to stay up too late and forget the huge impact that this one choice will have on our energy the next morning. A good 8 hours of sleep is optimal for most people.
3) Blood Sugar Balance
It’s extremely important for us to control our blood sugar levels. If our levels get too low, we find ourselves feeling sluggish and for some, depressed. Starting your day with a protein smoothie is key! Having 20 g of protein in the morning has been shown to help stabilize blood sugar for the rest of the day. Check out our FREE Smoothie Formula Guide for some yummy ways to get enough protein into your mornings.
4) Move, Move, Move
Believe it or not, doing as little as 20 minutes of exercise a day can drastically help with energy and mood! Did you know that exercise has been confirmed to be as effective as anti-depressants for mild to moderate depression? Moving throughout the day even helps you sleep better, so you can probably knock 2 things off this list just by doing some exercise!
5) Avoid Food Intolerances
When we think of food intolerances, we often assume they only relate to digestive issues. BUT: Did you know that food intolerances could actually be contributing to chronic fatigue, and even to depression? Try avoiding the big 4 (Gluten, Dairy, Corn and Soy) for 3 weeks to see if you notice a difference in your energy levels!
6) Check Your Body's Biochemistry
Do you know what’s actually going on in your body? How are your iron levels? How’s your B12? When was the last time you had your hormones checked? How are your brain chemicals? We ask because all of these can affect your energy!
