1. Drink enough water

Are you feeling tired? Drink enough water

Are you tired and do you have a headache? Maybe you just need a glass of water. Dehydration may cause a somewhat languid feeling and a nagging headache. Sometimes you don’t feel thirsty, but your body shows in a different way that you need water. The best solution is to drink water throughout the day. But if you have forgotten to drink water that day: drink two and a half glasses of water two hours before exercise.

2. A shot of caffeine

Are you feeling tired? A shot of caffeine

Drink an espresso an hour before exercise and you will feel more energetic. Keep in mind that coffee dehydrates your body, which means that you will get tired. So stick with one espresso and wash it away with a glass of water.

3. Give your body some time

Are you feeling tired? Give your body some time

Of course you can also ignore your tiredness and train anyway. But sometimes your body just needs some time to get into gear. So start with an exercise program on a calm intensity and get a short break after 10 minutes. By exercising, your body creates hormones that combat fatigue. Give your body some time to create these hormones and then you are ready to work out!

4. Start with an interval exercise

Are you feeling tired? Start with an interval exercise

Research shows that an exercise workout triggers your muscles to work hard. That is why you should start your workout with a warm up followed by a short interval exercise. For example: walking on a treadmill for 6 or 7 minutes, followed by a couple of sprints.

5. Back to basic

Are you feeling tired? Back to basic

Eating fresh, healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy will fuel you with the vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy and energised for longer. Be sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated throughout the day and avoid alcohol completely, as well as getting 8 hours a sleep every day which is vital to not just your physical health, but your mental health too.
