We’ve all been there: that dreaded mid-afternoon slump that sends you rushing to the nearest shop for something sugary. You promise yourself that those healthy snacks staring you down will be eaten tomorrow, but for today, sugar seems to be the only thing that helps bring you back to life.
Well, it’s time to optimize our routines because there are several ways to break out of this pattern – ways that definitely don’t involve chowing down on those stale pastries in the break room or the vending machine chocolate bars!
There are plenty of (healthy!) ways to boost your energy at work. Here are our top 5:
This may sound obvious, but it’s proven that caffeine can increase energy and productivity. And according to Coveteur, caffeine also has some lesser-known benefits -- it is a source of some essential nutrients, like antioxidants, vitamin B2, vitamin B5, and magnesium.[CM1] Just be careful to be strategic with your consumption. Too much caffeine can leave you feeling wired, jittery, or stressed.
Getting moving first thing in the morning can help optimize and stabilize your energy and mood all day long. Not only that, according to Harvard Medicine, people who exercise tend to sleep better[CM2], which means you can expect to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to jump-start your day!
If you are dehydrated, you can expect to feel fatigued and lethargic. That’s why it is so important to ensure you are drinking enough water every day. If you’re starting to drag, try having a glass of water and note the impact it has on your energy. Or better yet, make sure you’re drinking water consistently throughout the day to avoid dipping into those low-energy moments.
It can be so hard to know if you’re supposed to be eating 3 square meals, multiple small meals, or if you should be fasting and only eating 1 or 2 meals a day. However, what your meals consist of is probably the most important consideration. Try to eat foods with a low glycemic index (read: whole foods not pumped up with unnatural or added sugars), like whole grains, proteins, nuts, and veggies -- especially those with loads of fiber like leafy greens, cruciferous veggies like broccoli or brussels sprouts, or legumes like black beans and edamame.
Plant-based nutrition, with a focus on superfoods and adaptogens, can be a fabulous addition to your diet. There are several types and suppliers out there, so read on to learn more about what to look for in supplements to help keep you moving and shaking.
In the world of mushrooms, superfood mushrooms reign supreme. Not your average grocery store varieties, superfood mushrooms are celebrated due to their documented benefits for supporting human health. While there are about 2,000 species of edible mushrooms out there, only a handful have these specific health benefits to the body.
For example, Reishi mushrooms have long been revered not only for being a health-promoting food to support longevity but also for their ability to target and support the health of the adrenal glands, which play a vital role in our ability to respond and recover from stress.* To learn more about the benefits of Reishi mushroom, click here.
You will want to look for a mushroom supplement that also contains the mushroom mycelia, which is essentially the root system of the mushroom. The mycelial is a natural source of antioxidants, prebiotic fibers, immune-supportive compounds such as beta-glucans, and vital nutrients that are often missing from the typical diet.
Depending on your health and wellness goals, you will want to select a mushroom supplement to best compliment them. Mushroom supplements can provide a wide variety of benefits, but in general, they are good for supporting the body’s overall health and immune function.
When looking for a mushroom supplement, consider all the ingredients. Many companies, like Rritual, include additional adaptogens and prebiotics to support good overall health. You’ll also want to ensure the ingredients are certified organic, with no caffeine, stimulants, added sugar, sweeteners, artificial flavors, or preservatives.
If adding some pep in your step is your number one goal, we recommend taking a deeper dive into Lion’s Mane mushrooms.
Lion’s Mane is known for its ability to keep you alert, focused, and mentally sharp.* When combined with Rhodiola and Bacopa monnieri, adaptogens that help the body ward off fatigue, promote physical endurance, and support peak cognitive function, Lion’s Mane mushroom supplements like Rritual’s Lion’s Mane Focus Elixir could enable a healthier frame of mind and an overall higher quality of health.*
If you’re looking for an energy boost at work, you could try supercharging your coffee or tea by adding in your favorite mushroom powder. Because Rritual’s products contain no caffeine or other stimulants, they can be added to the bevy of your choice to perk you up without leaving you feeling wired or jittery.* Simply add your mushroom powder to your coffee or tea at work to see the benefits to your body and your mind.* Remember, those benefits will be most noticeable when you consume it regularly, so consider including mushroom coffee into your wellness routine to experience that energy boost you need at work every day.
