If you find yourself reaching for a bag of sugary candy at 3 p.m. or pouring your fourth coffee of the day, you’re not alone. It’s normal to feel sleepy during a long workday, but your go-to snacks may not be giving you the energy boost you need. In fact, overdo it on the sugar or caffeine and you might find yourself even more tired at the end of the day! The good news is, you can stay awake and alert during long days with healthy snacks instead.
This energy-boosting beverage has less caffeine than coffee and is loaded with immune-boosting antioxidants. Drinking tea and water (rather than sugary juice and soda) throughout the day will help keep you hydrated and more awake.
This healthy snack is full of zinc, iron and minerals that help transport oxygen to your tired brain. Pumpkin seeds are also a good source of protein, which will give you a longer-lasting energy burst.
A square or two of dark chocolate will give you a gentle caffeine boost along with flavonoids for heart health. Just be careful not to overindulge—savor small amounts of this high-quality treat.
Whether apples, bananas or berries are your favorite, the natural sugars and nutrients in fresh fruit will give you a quick energy boost without the eventual crash associated with refined sugars.
