Teaches us how to improve our energy levels based on essential human nutrition needs and better lifestyle habits
According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, at any given time, one in five people feel unusually tired and one in ten have prolonged fatigue. While some may have medical reasons for their tiredness, for many, the challenges of everyday life can cause this lethargy.
Added to this, when we’re busy and have limited time, it’s easy to grab food from the nearest location or default to a takeaway meal without considering what will best support our energy levels. Then, when the 3pm slump hits, we may reach for sugary snacks to get us back on an even keel, without being conscious of the direct negative impact these foods have on us feeling exhausted in the first place.
