Top 5 Tips To Maintain Mental Energy And Motivation Throughout Summer

As we find ourselves half way into the Summer, many of us are enjoying the longer days, warmer weather, and (hopefully) outdoor activities. However, with the heat and longer days, it can be easy to feel sluggish and demotivated, particularly during the morning and afternoon. If you find yourself struggling to maintain mental energy and motivation throughout the day, you're not alone.

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to combat this feeling and stay energized and motivated all day long. Here are some tips that can help you banish the morning and afternoon slumps and keep your mind and body at peak performance.

Regular exercise, whether high-intensity or more gentle forms of movement, such as yoga or Pilates, can help boost energy levels and mood

  1. Increase Your Heart Rate

One of the best ways to boost your energy levels, motivation, and mood is to increase your heart rate through exercise. Whether you prefer high-intensity workouts or more gentle forms of movement, such as yoga or Pilates, daily exercise can help you feel more alert and focused throughout the day.

If you're not a fan of exercise, meditation is an excellent alternative. Regular meditation has been linked to reducing stress and anxiety and can increase your enthusiasm in the workplace.

  1. Avoid Sugary Products

While sugar might give you a quick energy boost, it can cause a subsequent crash, leaving you feeling even more lethargic than before. Avoid sugary snacks and instead choose healthier options that can provide sustained energy throughout the day.

One option is to try Dr Zeltser's Wellness Truffles, naturally sugar-free sweet that can increase your mental stamina, focus, and lower anxiety levels. These sweets contain some amazing plants which can help you feel full for longer periods without the sugar or caffeine crash.

  1. Get Some Fresh Air

Spending too much time working at your computer without taking breaks can cause both physical and mental exhaustion. Studies have shown that getting fresh air and sunlight can improve your emotional well-being, so make sure to take regular breaks and get outside for a few minutes each day.

  1. Change Your Environment

Sometimes, it's not your body that needs refueling, but your environment. If you're feeling tired and demotivated, try changing your working environment. If you work remotely, consider working from a quiet outdoor space, or try adding some color to your home office. Even small changes can inspire you and help shift your mindset.

  1. Lower Your Caffeine Intake

While coffee can be a great pick-me-up in the morning, drinking too much of it can lead to increased fatigue and lower productivity levels during the caffeine crash. To avoid this, try to limit your caffeine intake throughout the day.

There are many reasons to why you might be feeling slump during the summer of 2023, but fueling up with nutrients and making healthier choices will banish it away.

Look after yourselves and those around you. The Team from Wellness by Dr Zeltser hopes that with the above tips, you can make the most of the summer season and stay motivated and energized.
