Who doesn't wish to stay active all day? We all do. However, as the day passes through, we get involved in different activities and eventually get exhausted by the end of the day. 

Why don't we feel energetic? Well, as your stamina comes down, you feel drained physically and mentally. 

There are different ways one can increase stamina but it isn't a one day process. Building your stamina can take a good amount of time, months or even years depending on how you follow it. 

We talked to Ms. Lakshita Jain, Certified Clinical Dietician, Lecturer, Diabetes Educator, Meat Technologist, and Founder of NUTR and asked what were some easy ways of boosting our stamina.

The expert shared, "There are 3 ways through which one can increase stamina. Food, exercise/yoga/meditation and supplements." Not just eating right or taking supplements, working our on your body too helps in improving your stamina. If you don't wish to gym, you can start building a walking or jogging routine to get  your body back on track. 

Clean Eating 

The expert shared that clean eating helps build stamina. She suggested writing what you are eating the whole day and understand the

time where you feel exhausted and tired and add fueling food there. 

1.Stay hydrated - If you often find yourself low on energy, blame it on dehydration. Sip on more water. 

2. When you are exercising, make sure you eat 1.5-1 hour before you exercise. Gyming while on low fuel (fasting state) can leave you very early.

3. Don't skip meals for weight loss or because of busy schedule.
