Discover 8 natural ways to get energized and look radiant for this Chinese New Year!


NATURAL LIGHT ON!

1. NATURAL LIGHT ON!

Sunlight is nature's way of telling your internal clock that it's time to start the day. Leave the curtains open or flip on a light switch in the morning to stimulate sunlight, start your body engine of the day!

BREAFAST

2. BREAKFAST- A FRESH START OF THE DAY

A protein-packed breakfast will help your brain functions optimally. It helps fight that foggy mental feeling and crush cravings all day long. A high-fibre, low glycaemic-index meal will also keep you full, boost metabolism and good blood-sugar levels for maximum energy. Include oats, walnuts, chia seeds and coconut or almond milk. Throw in berries, sultanas for natural sweetness.

SNACK SMART

3. SNACK SMART

A snack including both protein and carbohydrate is most ideal. It curbs hunger and releases energy gradually. Try nuts and an apple, or nut butter and crackers as an energy-boosting snack.

 WATCH YOUR POSTURE

4. WATCH YOUR POSTURE

A correct posture helps to get more oxygen into the body. Sit upright on your chair and take deep breaths. Keep your legs uncrossed for good circulation. Do these for five minutes every few hours and feel the energy rise.

LATE-NIGHT SUPPERS

5. AVOID LATE-NIGHT SUPPERS

A heavy meal right before bed can leave you feeling bloated and tired the next morning. If you’re itching for a late night snack, keep it light and less than 150 calories. Drinking unsweetened soy milk/low-fat yogurt or eating cereal muesli and wholemeal bread, etc is recommended.

 THE POWER OF H20

6. THE POWER OF H20

Insufficient water can leave you feeling lethargic. Stay hydrated by drinking water every hour.

SCHEDULE WORKSOUT

7. SCHEDULE WORKOUTS

Marching on the spot for one minute is enough to get your blood pumping. Regular exercise gives you more energy and supercharges your metabolism to help you burn fat.

 SLEEP IS IMPORTANT

8. SLEEP IS IMPORTANT

Getting adequate sleep is important to feel fully rested. Getting QUALITY sleep is even more important and ensures that you wake up feeling refreshed and energised. A glass of milk will improve the quality of your sleep and your alertness the following day. For lactose intolerant people, you can use aromatherapy instead.
