Power Up to Move More
Do you have trouble staying energized for your post-workday workout? We feel you! Try these tips to keep your energy going strong so you can Move More.
HYDRATE: Drink water throughout the day and especially before, during and after physical activity.
FUEL UP: When your energy is starting to lag, snack on healthy carbs, like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
FIGHT FATIGUE: Alternate sitting and standing during the day. Wear comfy shoes you can easily walk in, or use insoles to keep your legs and feet feeling fine.
REFRESH: Try stress-relieving activity breaks, like lunchtime walks, meditation and yoga to rejuvenate and refresh anytime.
BREATHE: Practice breathing deeply by inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth slowly to deliberately send more oxygen to your brain and body.
EAT FOR ENERGY: Avoid eating saturated fats or too much protein throughout the day. They digest more slowly and can take away oxygen and energy-delivering blood from your muscles.
DON’T WAIT: Make it a habit to go right from work or school to your workout or activity. If you stop at home, you may be tempted to skip it.
REFUEL: Refuel after your sweat sesh with lean protein, healthy carbs and plenty of water so your body can recover more quickly.
