Need more energy??
The foods you eat every day have an affect on your energy level and mood. Eating red meats such as ground beef can leave you feeling sleepy, while fish which is rich in omega 3 fatty acids can help you feel more energized. The same goes for vegetables. Veggies that have been cooked have less nutrients, therefore leaving you feeling less energzed and full of vitamins, so always try to eat them raw or uncooked. Eating more whole grains instead of white breads will help as well. The healthier you eat the more you feel energized. Another important component of feeling more energized every day is your sleep pattern. If you are sleeping too much, or not enough, or don’t go to bed and wake up at a consistent time and schedule it can affect your daytime hours. It is important to know when to sleep and for how long. Teens tend to sleep more than adults because of their growing stages. All in all, it is imporant to feel your best, so treat your body and mind well.
