  2. When you attend a conference does your energy level look like this? 100% 75% 50% 25% 0% 9am 10am 11am 12pm 1pm 2pm 3pm 4pm 5pm
  3. Sure, maybe the speaker is killing you with his PowerPoint
  4. but chances are your energy is all over the place because of what you’re putting into your body.
  5. So here are 5 tips to prevent the all-mighty conference coma
  6. Stay hydrated 1.
  7. Drink lots of water. Dehydration is the leading cause of daytime fatigue. Keep a bottle handy and keep drinking throughout the day. You’re probably drinking a lot less than you should.
  8. Be cautious with quick boosts. Too much caffeine coming from energy drinks, diet sodas and coffee will tax your adrenals which make your energy levels crash even more.
  9. Keep it natural. Water or unsweetened tea is best. Green tea has a fraction of the amount of caffeine that coffee has and will still give you a boost.
  10. pack superfoods 2.
  11. Super foods are an excellent sources of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, phytonutrients-rich green plants & algae (which is a good thing). Every health food store will have a variety of options that is right for you. One of our favorites is:
  12. eat smaller meals 3.
  13. Don’t even think about having that big pasta dish for lunch. It will only make things worse. Eat smaller meals throughout the day. This will keep your blood sugar stabilized.
  14. Stick to natural unprocessed foods. Nuts, seeds, lean proteins and greens are best. These are natural energy boosting & fat burning foods which will keep you awake.
  15. Have healthy snacks 4.
  16. Get your hand out of the candy bowl and don’t even make eye contact with that cookie. We mean it! Instead keep a survival kit in your bag. Being prepared means you won’t slip up and have that snack you’ll later regret. Here’s what you could have instead:
  17. Walnuts are packed with omega 3 fatty acids which is great for the brain and keeps you focused. Almonds are high in protein and a handful will fill you up quickly. Energy bars low in sugar and raw are best if you have to skip a meal. 70% or more dark chocolate is a great substitute for sugar. The darker the better!
  18. exercise 5.
  19. Exercise (even small amounts) will dramatically increase you energy level. Go for a run, do some push-ups, lunges, jumping jacks, whatever, just move your butt!
  20. Staying in hotel is no excuse for not exercising. If you’re lacking motivation go on YouTube and find some routines you can do, there are many.
  21. So there you have it. Implement these 5 quick tips and you’ll not only avoid conference coma but you’ll also get more out of your day.
