As you wait in a hospital waiting room or at the side of a dear person who is ill, you may feel you need an extra boost of energy. Don’t rely on caffeine. This stimulant is great for keeping us awake but counterproductive if it becomes a habit. There will be a headache the first day you take away the drug, but the surge of energy you will receive after the caffeine has made its way out of your body is worth it. Instead, treat yourself to a healthy, energy booster that will help void weight gain – water! Water is great during stressful times. Treat yourself to one of those fancier bottled waters – not the carbonated kind. Of course, water tastes like water, but you will feel as though you are having something special.
