So, what do you do when you are tired? Well, for years, I’d take a nap, wake up, and realize that I was just as tired AFTER the nap as I was BEFORE the nap. I’ve learned that the cure for the afternoon “blahs” is to get up, get out, and get moving. (Man, I sound like one of those cheesy late-night weight loss infomercials!) But, the truth is, if you can dig deep and find the resolve to take a walk, do a few jumping jacks, swim a few laps, or take a quick bike ride, your body will “wake itself up” and you’ll feel great. Seriously, I’ve been surprised by the impact of a simple, brisk walk. I feel better, I burn a few extra calories, and I reduce my stress.
Energy boosters include:
20 minute walk
3 sets 20 jumping jacks
15 minute bike ride
10 minutes of full body stretching
