Introduction:Getting through the work day is not always easy. In fact, it gets harder the older you get. You may have certain medical conditions that make it hard to keep energy levels up, or just the fact that you are up in the years, makes fatigue a problem.
Here are some tips to help you get through the day.
Eat breakfast each day, but don't just eat any old breakfast. Choose healthy foods that are also packed with protein. Some good choices are scrambled eggs, omelets with lean meat, or oatmeal.
This will help you stay focused and your energy level up through the first half of the day.
Chances are you many need a snack mid-morning or mid-afternoon. You may need both! Choose high fiber, high energy solutions. A piece of fruit or a handful of nuts will maintain your energy and curb your hunger. A candy bar may be satisfying while you are eating it, but you will experience a sugar crash and be right back where you started...sluggish and hungry.
It is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated. Drinking water often also aids in digestion and keeping your body and bodily functions moving on a regular basis.
If you have a job where you are sitting at a desk all day long and staring at a computer screen all day, make sure you get up often to stretch your legs and give your eyes a rest. Go for a short walk, even if it is just for five minutes. Your eyes also need a break or your vision will end up blurry by the end of the day.
Everyone needs a break every now and then. So take a break--just for the reason of taking a break. Chat with a co-worker, go for a walk, or run a quick errand if feasible. You may want to read a chapter in a book or bring your needlework to relax for a few minutes. Most work schedules have built in break times. Use yours to take a break from work and stress.
