Find your Feelgood Health
At AXA Health, we know that everyone’s journey to Feelgood Health is different. Discover more ways to boost your body and mind in a way that suits you on our hub.
Leading a physically active lifestyle is a great boost to your health, but a balanced diet is just as important to stay energised. If you lead an active lifestyle but are feeling sluggish and lacking in energy, it can be a sign that you’re not fuelling your body with the right food. Making small changes to your diet and eating patterns can go a long way to increasing your energy levels and can help us achieve feelgood health and wellbeing by tweaking rather than giving up everything that we love.
AXA Health physiologist and Registered Associate Nutritionist, Georgina Camfield, shares her nutrition tips to help increase your daily energy levels:
- Include complex carbohydrates - eat foods made of whole grains, such as whole wheat bread and brown rice as they release energy over time. Try to avoid refined carbohydrates, such as sugar-sweetened drinks, pastry and white bread, as they merely provide a temporary energy boost followed by a sharp decline (you’ll feel sluggish again quite soon)
