Personally, I get sluggish at least once during the day; alright it’s probably more like three times! I need some natural energy boosters to get me going.

On an average day, 3:00 p.m. seems to trigger a sleep response in me. I can barely concentrate, and my eyes want to close. I wish I could take a nap, but since work won’t stop so I can sleep (for some reason?!), I’ve had to figure out ways to jump start me energy and get energized again. Here are some natural tips I’ve found have worked for me.

Eat regularly

Try to eat at regular times throughout the day to help you to keep your energy up.

Foods that improve energy

blueberries for energy

There are specific foods that can boost your energy overall as well as give you a quick fix. These options are vegan and allergen-free. Increasing your magnesium is one great way to energize. Nuts are a great source, but since they are not allergen-free, these options can also do the trick.

Get moving

One way to get a quick burst of energy is to get up and move, even for a short period. You need to make the most of the breaks you have at work or during your day, even if you feel like it will set you back. You can be far more productive when your energy is higher.

Clean up!

There’s no other way to say it – clean up your stuff!

Hopefully, you’ll find one or more of these tips will help you keep your energy up throughout the day. Do you have any other natural energy boosters?
