Feeling sluggish, tired and sleepy? Instead of plopping down in a chair, take a walk. Walking for just 10-15 minutes can leave you feeling energised for hours.
Walking increases oxygen flow through the body. It also increases levels of cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine – hormones that help elevate energy levels. That is why going for a walk when you’re tired may be a more effective energy boost than grabbing a cup of coffee.
Try walking when you next feel drained after a tough day at work.
