Feeling exhausted? Regain some energy with these 3 tips!

1️⃣ Give yourself time to rest and recover
Days off are meant for recovery, but if your weekends are filled with taking care of your kids, elderly, or someone sick, you may be starting your week more drained than you anticipate. Carve out time over the weekend to give yourself some needed R&R, so you’ll be more energized the rest of the week.

2️⃣ Do what makes you happy
Need a mood booster? Add an activity you enjoy doing. Whether it’s making sure you get alone time as an introvert or meeting up with a friend as an extrovert, you’ll find an extra boost of energy after resting with purpose.

3️⃣ Sleep and exercise
Both are important, but if you are pressed for time and can only choose one, here’s a quick guide to help you decide.
Check your tendencies (you’ll often choose it without much thought) and ask yourself some quick questions:
1. Will training help you sleep better tonight?
2. Will skipping this workout make you feel more rested and stronger?
3. Any injuries, aches, pain, fatigue, or feeling run down?
The more you pay attention to your body, the more you’ll know what your body really needs to feel better.
