3. Ginger Cinnamon Water
- Crush a big piece of ginger and add it to 2 glasses of water. Heat it till you get the aroma.
- Now add a stick of cinnamon and let the water boil.
- Cover the lid and let it steep for about half an hour. Drink when cool.
Ginger helps to boost energy circulation in the body and also improves your metabolic rate.
4. Citrus Juice
- Squeeze the juice of half a lemon, or a full lemon if you would prefer a really strong taste, in a glass of water.
- Depending on the weather, you can use warm or chilled water.
- Drink the entire glass in one go. Repeat about 2 3 times a day.
The flavonoids and vitamin C present in lemon will reduce stress and fatigue. It also contains a phytochemical known as coumarin which releases the stress-boosting fragrance to fight fatigue.
Yes, while this may not be a typical home remedy, drinking water through the day can be one of the easiest means of fighting fatigue naturally. Often, fatigue is also a sign that your body is dehydrated, and sipping water can immediately make you feel rejuvenated.
