Make Energy Don't Fake Energy

Make Energy Don't Fake Energy

The problem: You turn to fake energy sources like candy, soda, and baked goods which cause an artificial high and a major crash.

Why it works: By creating energy the natural way, you won't rely on calorie-heavy, sugary substitutes and you will feel better inside and out.

How to use it: If you find yourself hitting a wall after lunch, try doing a mini workout or take a break and get some fresh air. Getting your heart pumping and changing up the scenery is a great way to feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle the second half of your day.
