How To Increase Your Stamina

Have you ever felt more tired than you should climbing stairs, or going about daily activities?

You could try to improve the situation by increasing your overall stamina and endurance. Let’s talk about how to increase your stamina.

The terms endurance and stamina have similar meaning and often can be used interchangeably.

Stamina is the physical and mental ability to sustain an activity for a long period.

Endurance similarly refers to your body’s physical capability to sustain an exercise for an extended period.

Regular aerobic exercise can help you improve both of these fitness qualities. You can improve your endurance and stamina by consistently performing aerobic exercises that challenge your heart and lungs.

Why is my stamina so low?

Dehydration can be one reason for low stamina. It’s a direct cause of fatigue and bad stamina. It’s critical for athletes who lose a lot of water through sweating, and even office workers who may be limiting their daily intake of water without noticing. 

Drinking water fights off muscle fatigue and boosts stamina. You can also try a sport drink like Gatorade, as they replace electrolytes in the body.
