Bypass the energy drinks, energy bars, caffeine or diet supplements if you’re tired and looking to boost your energy, say researchers at the University of Georgia. Instead, they found that regular exercise plays a significant role in increasing energy and fighting fatigue.

Dr. Diet weighs in:

If you’re someone who hasn’t yet gotten on the exercise bandwagon, maybe these positive study findings will give you that exercise boost you’ve been looking for.

In fact, researchers found that participants got a bigger boost in energy from exercise than from taking medications. And these benefits have been felt in healthy adults, cancer patients and even people with chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

The mechanism for the energy boost is that exercise causes an increase in energy-producing, feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin.

So many of us have busy schedules and long to-do lists, who wouldn’t want to benefit from a little less fatigue and a bit more energy?

And if you commit to exercising regularly, you’ll have a much easier time managing your weight.

To get started in your “fight fatigue” program, consider taking an after lunch walk 3-5 times a week. This could help you be more productive in the afternoons and may even sway you to build some early morning or after-dinner walks into your daily routine.
