The smoke from cigarettes is extremely harmful. The toxins and tar in the smoke reduce the efficiency of your lungs. Over time, this can reduce the amount of oxygen transported around your body, making you feel tired.
Quitting smoking is great for both your energy levels and your health.
Regularly drinking alcohol before bed can interfere with the quality of your sleep. Alcohol can also act as a diuretic, meaning that if you drink it before bed it can make you get up at night, disturbing your sleep.
If you drink regularly, limiting the amount of alcohol you consume could help improve your energy levels.
High-sugar foods cause your blood sugar to rise quickly, sometimes referred to as a blood sugar spike. This results in your body releasing large amounts of insulin to bring your blood sugar back down. This rise and fall in blood sugar are what cause a rush of energy followed by a slump.
Minimize your intake of sugar and focus on eating whole foods instead.
