5 tips to restore your energy

The importance of energy for a balanced daily life

The long-awaited spring has arrived. The evenings are getting lighter and warmer, and we ourselves are looking to spend more time outdoors. I don't know about you, but I look forward to the warmth and sunshine more than other years.
Energy is vital for me to keep myself in balance between family, daily life and work. And if I lack it, I can find myself on the verge of burnout quite quickly. And I've noticed that the beginning of spring is when my energy levels are at their lowest, so I try to find ways to boost them.
Why is this important to me? Because we can continue to live with empty batteries, hoping that they will recharge themselves. But I think energy fundamentally changes the way we feel - it is more than just empty capacity. It is a story about the skill and wisdom to act with joy. And for me it is important to know that I am living fully. Because how we do one thing in a way reflects how we do everything else. So yes, I think energy matters. 

Practical tips to regain energy in spring

It's no secret that sunlight helps boost energy, maintain calm and focus. That's why I am convinced that spring is the right time to take care of ourselves, to renew and increase our energy, so that we can create and inspire again. This time I wanted to share some practical tips that help me to replenish my energy reserves in spring.

1. Tap into the power of nature

In spring, nature generously shares her gifts with us. Maple and birch sap are living examples. Tree sap contains valuable substances such as manganese, zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and more. Treat yourself to a glass of healthy and natural energy from the bosom of Mother Nature. And don't forget the sunshine, which is more and more common in spring. This will take care of both your physical and emotional well-being.  

2. Be on the move

Do you go for a regular walk or jog every day? Or maybe exercise? If not, it might sound wrong to say that you can raise your energy bar this way. After all, it's so hard to get moving when you're on the verge of exhaustion. But keep in mind - energy builds energy. And it's important to use it wisely. When you move , you'll oxygenate your body, which will not only help you feel better, but also help you focus. And by exercising, you'll also strengthen your immune system, which your body will be very grateful for in the long run.

3. Make sure you eat a nutritious diet

After a long winter, your body will be longing for a good dose of freshness and lightness. Choose nutritious and vitamin-rich leafy green vegetables and greens - spinach, lettuce, parsley, chives.
And don't forget to add the healthy harbingers of spring - green sprouts and microgreens- to your meals. They not only contain vitamins A, B, C, D and E, but also many valuable minerals - iron, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, potassium.
And you can enhance the spring feeling by sprouting your own greens.
Not only will you get quality and healthy supplements, but you will also save money.
I am convinced that a balanced and healthy diet will not only bring back a feeling of vitality, but will also help to awaken your winter-weary skin.


4. Listen to your body

Just that simple. If your body is asking you to take a break, do it! Don't wait for a special invitation. In my experience, waiting can only lead to unwanted health problems. Take a lunch break if you can. Take a day off if you feel the need. Do more things that make you happy and excited. Because I sincerely believe that in most cases, we probably don't do enough. We just don't do enough of what fulfils and excites us.

5. Consult a doctor

If you have been struggling with energy loss for a long time, it is worth talking to your GP. It may not be temporary winter tiredness, but health problems. Blood tests can help you detect iron deficiency and deficiencies in vitamins B and D, which can have a significant impact on your energy and lead to chronic fatigue. Your doctor can diagnose and treat it. Be responsible and take care of your body. It will thank you!
