In a Slump? Revitalize With These 4 Tips

Athletics are the right track to scholastic success(NewsUSA) - Picture this: The baby's sick and so is your baby sitter; your husband's out of town; you've got a meeting in 10 minutes; and a report due by Friday that's not even close to being done.

Sound like an energy-sapping day?

You're not alone. It seems that most people are striving - but failing - to find some kind of balance between work and home. The result is that Americans are feeling more run down, exhausted, fatigued and depressed than ever.

The stress of life and our everyday routines take a toll on our mental and emotional health. But take heart - the following tips are easy ways to boost your energy level and increase the way you enjoy life:

* Tweak what you eat. The typical American diet is heavy in white flour, processed foods, red meat and foods loaded with fat. Increasing your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and soy products can do wonders for your energy level.

* Unwind before bedtime. By doing something relaxing before you hit the hay, like reading, going for a short walk or taking a bath, you release unwanted tension and stress that can play a major role in how well you sleep each night.

* Drink an energy beverage. Energy levels can be affected by what's in our digestive system. With so much of our food containing additives and preservatives, in addition to harmful toxins and pesticides in our environment, it might be a good idea to cleanse your system. In this way, certain drinks can help.

Innovative Technologies Corporation of America's Hair of the Dog contains 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C and delivers 3,200 milligrams of Phase 1 and Phase 2 detoxifiers, which specifically target the liver.

Since the liver works as a filter, protecting the body against thousands of toxic substances, drinks like this can aid the body in the cleansing process. For more information, log on to or call (800) 482-2637.

* Count your blessings. Your general feeling of health and well-being is directly related to your outlook on life. Being grateful for what you have, instead of unhappy about what you don't, can go a long way in helping you feel better.
