Welcome to this week’s episode of Thyroid Strong where I give you 5 ways to boost your energy with Hashimoto’s to conquer all of what life has to offer. These are steps you can incorporate into your daily routine today and keep with you for the long term of your Hashimoto’s journey.
Key Takeaways on 5 ways to boost your energy with Hashimoto’s
We can only do so much when it comes to boosting our energy levels, but I’m going to give you a solid foundation for altering small changes that will make a strong impact on your stamina throughout the day.
Heavy Resistance Training with Appropriate Protein Intake
Workouts need to be 3-4 days a week with heavy resistance training and lower reps. After your workout, let’s focus on eating habits. Most coffee can have traces of mold from the packaging process. A good way to circumvent this is to replace your morning coffee with Sunup Green Coffee. It tastes a little bit different but could away potential mold exposure. Next, make sure you are hitting your optimal protein intake based on your goal weight. Not sure how much to consume? I’m going to break it down for you in this episode.
Importance of Uninterrupted Sleep and Morning Sunshine
Within the first 30 minutes of your day, I want you to take a walk outside looking to the horizon for that bright sunshine to cover your face and, quite literally, brighten up your day. Next, make sure you are getting six hours of uninterrupted sleep–that includes TV, bathroom breaks, etc. Waking up at the same time every day is essential to our circadian rhythm and can help boost energy levels throughout the day.
