For great energy tips by Milo

Get a good night’s rest.

While you sleep, your body goes through a rebuilding and rejuvenation process. Be sure to get sufficient sleep.

Find new interests.

Take up new activities like rock climbing, futsal or whatever interests you. You’ll be surprised how your enthusiasm will spill over to your other chores.

Alternate hot and cold in the shower.

A great way to boost metabolism, heart rate and blood circulation. Also great for sore muscles!

Nourish your body.

Balance your food choices. Feed your body the nutrients it needs – protein, carbohydrates, fat and different types of vitamins and minerals - in the right proportions.

Brush away the zzz….

Feeling droopy by mid-day? Take five to brush your teeth. It’s the simplest way to recharge.

Laugh often.

Laughter is a fantastic antidote to energy slump. It releases important hormones that make you feel good. Watch a funny movie or share some jokes.

Take a nap.

Sometimes, a quick afternoon nap is all you need to get recharged. Make it short, or you may feel groggy.

Balance your day.

Split your time well between work and rest. If you have too much of either, you will only end up feeling sluggish and lethargic.

Limber up.

Get up and walk around if you have been reading, surfing the net or watching TV. Have a good s-t-r-e-t-c-h. Better still, go for a short run!

Eat a banana.

Banana is a great energy booster and it is rich in potassium.

Play more.

Work is important but so is play. Make time to chill out so you can recharge, mentally and physically.

Get some sun.

Feeling lethargic in an air-conditioned room?
Go out for a short sunny break. It’ll perk you up.

Avoid energy sappers.

Being with people who are constantly complaining or negative can wear you out.

Set goals.

You can always improve your life, even in very small ways. Having goals will motivate you and keep you feeling more energetic.

Sing or whistle.

Greet your day with a happy song and you’ll find yourself in a chirpy mood. Whistling a cheery tune works too.

Connect with others.

Being in good company can perk you up. Build relationships. Tap into the social energy around you.

Sit up!

Slouching leads to pain, discomfort and muscle fatigue. Fix your energy levels through good posture.

Eat for energy.

Eat more grains, fruits and vegetables – these foods give you carbohydrates for energy, plus vitamins, minerals and fibre

Take deep breaths.

Draw in a deep breath and then fully exhale. Repeat a few times. Having more oxygen in your blood stream will energise you.

Work out.

Exercise regularly. Do push-ups or lift weights to strengthen your muscles. Join sports activities. Staying fit helps you stay energetic and alert.

Be positive.

Worrying too much will bog you down. On the other hand, having a positive outlook will boost you up.

Get out and have fun!

Spending too much time at the computer? Get some fresh air. Go biking, jogging or simply a brisk walk. You’ll feel more invigorated.

Start right.

Start your day with a healthy breakfast. It fills your “empty tank” after a night’s sleep and charges you up!

Snack smart.

Refuel with small snacks. Reach for the healthy munchies – a few nuts or raisins, an apple or some celery sticks. And don’t forget a cup of delicious MILO® drink!

Get physical.

Run, jog or dance. Climb the stairs instead of taking the lift. Walk or ride a bike to meet your friends.

Sweat it out.

A good workout helps your heart pump better, gets your adrenalin flowing and boosts your energy level. You’ll surely feel better.

Stay hydrated.

Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue. Drink enough fluids and water throughout the whole day.

Move about.

Mid afternoon slump?
Get away from your desk. Take a quick walk around the office or go up and down the stairs. You’ll feel more energised.
