Fibromyalgia and other invisible illnesses can take a serious toll on your energy levels – not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. While you may not get back all the energy you once possessed, there are a few simple hacks you can do to boost your energy levels and fight off the physical, mental and emotional toll of fibromyalgia. Here are 12 natural energy hacks you should try:
#1 – Drink an Energy Boosting Smoothie
Smoothies can be a quick and healthy pick my up. Blueberries are a great addition to smoothies as they are packed with tons of rich antioxidants to neutralize toxic “free radicals” in your body. Adding a little d-ribose powder is another great way to boost your energy levels without the risk of a crash later on.
#2 – Eat Low Glycemic Foods
Low glycemic foods such as beans, bran cereal, brown rice and nuts are a must if you struggle with fatigue. Because they are low glycemic – they won’t make your blood sugar levels spike, meaning you don’t have to worry about a sugar crash.
