If you work hard all week, then find yourself “crashing” on the weekend – just when you need even more energy to do the things you love – here are some tips for you:

1. Go to bed and get up at the same time as you do during the week.

I guarantee you won’t be tired all weekend – and you won’t have trouble falling asleep on Sunday night.

2. Start your weekend days with 30 minutes of fun activity.

It doesn’t have to be a structured workout (you can save that for during the week), but getting up and getting moving will get you off to a high-energy start.

3. Avoid high-calorie, high-sugar brunches.

A surefire way to make yourself sleepy is to load up on orange juice and pancakes after your weekend “workout.” So skip those foods, stick to an omelet filled with vegetables, and drink green tea.

And when you get together with your friends, keep your energy high by going for a hike or bike ride, rather than sitting down in a pub or movie theater with a bunch of high-calorie snacks.
