Energy slumps suck.

Yawning, droopy eyes, deflated posture.  All you want to do is take a nap, but it’s only 3 in the afternoon and you have a lot more day to get through before it’s time for bed.

Here are three natural ways to boost your energy:

Eat plenty of superfoods and take vitamin B.

Citrus, blueberries, whole grains like oat, dark, leafy greens like spinach or kale, fatty fish like salmon, colorful veggies — these are all so packed with vitamins and minerals, your body gets a ton of nutrients to work with and keep you alert.

Put your nose to work

Our sense of smell is one of our most important senses for storing memory. Don’t underestimate what your favorite scent can do for refreshing you. The smell of coffee is sometimes enough to wake people up. Keep a little spray bottle of peppermint oil and water handy to shoot into the air when you need a pick-meup. You’ll be amazed by the results!

Keep breathing!

Breathe. Laugh. Give yourself a case of the giggles, dance in your office. Do 20 jumping jacks. You don’t have to break a sweat to get the oxygen flowing in your blood again. You’ll be surprised how much better you feel!
