Get quality sleep

Sleeping is one of the most important things that you need so that your body won't feel exhausted on a daily basis. Try to sleep about 7-8 hours on a daily basis consistently.

Sleeping too little or too much can be damaging to your body which can cause many complications such as: weight gain, lowered immunity, increased risk of diabetes and heart problems, and an increase in risk of accidents as well.

Protein consumption and energy levels

Protein consumption and energy levels

If time allows, make yourself a decent breakfast like scrambled eggs or enjoy a fruit bowl. Consuming protein for breakfast allows your body to avert the inconsistent sugar level that would ultimately result to your body being more alert.

Having a proper diet is essential to having more energy that your body can consume, but having sugar for breakfast - muffins, cereal, or a doughnut - leads to a spike in blood sugar level which would make your body crave a nap.

This may sound silly, but daily fatigue can actually be a way for your body to tell you that you need more stimulating activities.

Exercise raises your metabolism, boosts your mood and helps you sleep better at night. If hitting the gym ins't for you or doesn't fit in your schedule, a 20-minute brisk walk helps.

Dehydration and fatigue

Not enough people drink the right amount of water needed by their bodies. Dehydration can lead to fatigue so always make sure to keep a bottle of water at reach.

If you still feel sleepy after drinking water, try washing your hands and face in cold water. It would surely give you the zing needed to feel awake.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
