The result of these methods is said to turn your body into a ‘fatigue-fighting machine’…I’m not so sure these have the ability to transform a human into something bionic but I’m sure they’d do something just as effective (only slightly less risky, I hope.)
So here goes… five exhilarating ways to instantly boost your energy:
FIND SOMETHING RED: It’s odd maybe, well actually, it’s not. red is an emotive colour that is capable of physically changing the body: it enhances blood pressure and can boost heart rate. It’s known as a ‘stimulant colour’…
YAWNING – seems trivial and obvious right? But yawning is a way of cooling of your brain, and hence re-energizing it. (Fun fact: did you know the average yawn lasts for 6 seconds? Well, the more you know!)
RUNNING/ WALKING- 2 hours…that’s how many hours of energy on average you will have after only a brief 10 minute walk.
GET ON YOUTUBE- run and tell your parents: watching videos like dancing hamster (or ay other hilarious creation) will boost your blood pressure and increase heart rate, hence leaving you with a new and energised self.
CHIA SEEDS- sprinkle some of these around! (Preferably keeping them on your salads, thanks). They are choka-bloka with Vitamin B, protein and fibre.
STRETCH!- Bored? Tired? Lacking energy? Try this: stand in the doorway facing forwards with your feet several inches apart. Reach the sides of the frame, now grab the frame with your fingers and push your chest forwards, until you feel a stretch in your torso and back. Hold this for 30 seconds. The exercise stimulates the ‘sympathetic nervous system’; this hence, is clearly a beneficial little stretch.
Health, hacks, and everything inbetween.
