Posted on Jul 3 2015 - 3:48pm by Editorial Staff


Whether you’ve been working long hours, or are studying for an important assignment or exam, or simply seem to be feeling more and more tired recently, you’ll be happy to know that there are quite a few ways to start feeling more awake and alert. Of course you could always just drink some Red Bull, but it’s calorific and full of chemicals – so if you’re trying to find ways to stay awake without drinking energy drinks, look no further.

Energy Supplements

There are a wide range of energy and ‘brain booster’ supplements available that will not only help you to feel more awake, you’ll also find that your motivation and focus levels will significantly increase. If you have a work project or a university assignment to finish, for example, taking energy supplements will help motivate you to complete your task. A popular supplement amongst both the self-employed and students is Modafinil, a medication designed for those suffering from sleep pattern problems amongst other conditions. If you think that you’re feeling tired for medical reasons, you might be able to be prescribed Modafinil or something similar by your GP. However, if you don’t want to speak to a doctor, there are many sites where you can legally buy Modafinil online UK.

Stay Hydrated

If you’ve been feeling really tired and sluggish, it may simply be that you’re not drinking enough water. Increasing your water intake will not only help you to feel more awake and alert, it will also flush toxins from your body which will make you feel healthier and better in yourself in general. The less water you have in your system, the less oxygen you will have circulating in your bloodstream, which can lead to fatigue. Remember, if energy is what you need, water is your best friend!

Eat Breakfast

Skipping breakfast can lead to a variety of problems with fatigue and decreased energy levels being one of them. Contrary to popular belief, skipping breakfast can also lead to weight gain, as people who are hungry will tend to binge eat more to make up for the extra calories that their body should have got as soon as they woke up. In turn, weight gain can lead to a lack of energy. Even if you don’t have much time in the morning for breakfast, grabbing some fruit or a nutritious cereal bar to eat on the way to work can make all the difference to your energy levels throughout the day. As well as eating a healthy breakfast every day, eating healthier in general can also improve your energy levels massively – so fill up on fruit and veggies, healthy fats, and wholegrains to give your energy and motivation a boost.
