Banish the morning and afternoon slumps by nurturing your body and mind following these 5 tips

Do you often feel sluggish and demotivated to do anything past the early hours in the morning or mid-afternoon?  It is probably because your body and mind need refuelling, or you are in a mental rut.

Many people happen to feel that way, and with a change in your habits you can quickly get out of that lethargic state:

Too much sugar in your diet can cause drops in energy levels and along with other side-effects such as increased anxiety. Even though you might be feeling energetic right after eating something that contains large amounts of sugar, that energy is misleading, and you will quickly get out of it.   

Instead of reaching out to the nearest sugary snack, choose to fill your energy levels by taking Electuaries.

Electuaries are natural, sugar-free sweets that increase your mental stamina, focus and lower the anxiety levels. They are packed with nutrients and satiate your hunger for longer periods without the sugar or caffeine crash.

Lower Your Caffeine Intake

Before you say anything, we don’t mean that you should never drink coffee again but to lower the quantity. Coffee has many health benefits and for many of us – it is the only thing that wakes up in the morning.

However, drinking too much coffee in the morning can lead to increased fatigue and lower productivity levels during the caffeine crash.
