Individuals experiencing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) may find themselves feeling tired, anxious and low on energy throughout the day. Yes, lack of sleep and stress may be the primary culprits for these physiological disturbances. To keep your energy level up, follow these simple tips:

  1. Stay hydrated. Drink 6 to 8 cups of fluid daily. This includes coffee, tea and water. Experts say the healthiest option would be water, preferably with fruit slices (e.g., lime, lemon) or vegetable essences. Fruits and veggies contain high levels of Vitamin C, which can greatly give your energy levels a boost.
  2. Sweat out regularly. Toxins get inside our body by way of processed foods and pollution. So you better pick up an exercise routine that’s easy on your schedule to sweat these out.
  3. Eat more gut-friendly foods. The gut is considered the body’s second brain. Keep it smart by eating prebiotic-rich foods such as organic apple cider vinegar, dandelion greens, avocados and wheat germ. It also helps to take prebiotic supplements.
  4. Learn to manage stress more positively.  Nothing else can drag you down than feelings of anxiety and negativity. So handle stress with a positive mindset. Join groups and organisations that will allow you to unwind and get in touch with like-minded individuals. This is one way to maintain your enthusiasm and eagerness to live.

With these tips, you should be able to manage your afternoon slump effectively and get back to your normal energetic disposition. Still need assurance about your health? It may be perfect time to undergo a Naturopathic Health Check. Call 0426 866 354 or send an email to to make an appointment.
