Ways to Boost Energy Levels

Ways to Boost Energy Levels

As we age, it’s common for our energy levels to drop, but that doesn’t mean we need to slow down!

Here are some ways that you can boost your energy levels:

  1. Get active

A brisk activity that does not wear you out, like a quick walk, can increase energy levels. If walking isn’t up your alley, you can try jazzercise or yoga.

  1. Get enough sleep

Without enough sleep, you cannot expect to be rested and energized. Pay attention to your sleep habits and develop better habits, like limiting electronics, keeping the room cool and dark, and implementing a bedtime routine to help you wind down and relax before bed.

  1. Stay hydrated

Dehydration can cause your energy levels to slip. Make an effort to drink water throughout the day to keep yourself well hydrated. If you’re feeling sluggish, have some water and a healthy snack to perk you back up.

  1. Eat right

We all know that a healthy diet is important, but do you know which foods are best for energy? Diets that are high in sugars and carbohydrates will make you feel groggy, while foods rich in protein, vitamins and lean fats are better for sustained energy. If you’ve made all the proper changes but still don’t have enough energy, talk to your doctor about adding supplements to your diet.

  1. De-stress

Stress, if not addressed, can suck up all your energy. It is important to learn to manage your stress, some good options are meditation or tai chi.

  1. Watch the caffeine

While coffee can give you a boost of energy for some time, it isn’t the best idea to rely on it. Coffee is a diuretic, which actually dehydrates you, and if you like your coffee light and sweet, we already know that sugar can make you lethargic. No one says you need to give up your coffee, but you need to moderate your intake, like everything else.

Running out of energy, especially when it is age related, can be frustrating, but with these tips, you’ll be out and about again in no time!

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
