Avoid meals based on grain-based starchesWhile we are encouraged to base our diet on starchy staples such as bread, potatoes, rice and pasta, all these foods tend to cause substantial rises in blood sugar levels. As a result, the body can over-compensate, leading to low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia) later on, which commonly manifests itself as fatigue and lethargy. For stable blood sugar and energy levels, the best foods are those that release energy relatively slowly, such as meat, fish, eggs, green vegetables, nuts, beans and lentils.
Breathe deeplyInefficient, shallow breathing is thought to lead to under-oxygenation of the body, which can cause energy levels to stall. Learning the art of deep breathing from the belly (diaphragmatic breathing) can help boost energy and wellbeing.
