Low energy levels can lead to bad moods, fatigue, lack of motivation and in some serious cases, depression.
Energy is the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.
Mark Twain once said “And what is a man without energy? Nothing – nothing at all.”
So here are some seriously easy, NATURAL ways to boost your energy levels!
POWER NAPS. Studies have found that 10 to 20 minutes is all that is needed to recharge and not throw off your night’s sleep
BREATHING. Solid, proper breathing is one of the most important ways to improve the energy level. Deep breathing for a few minutes each morning is a great way to boost your energy
EATING. But it has to be healthy! Food is our body’s fuel. Just like your car, make sure you are using top-notch stuff, not the economy stuff.
WORK OUT. You might think it’s hard to workout when you have no energy, but (so long as your low energy levels aren’t sickness related) working out will boost your levels like you wouldn’t believe!
STRETCH. If you’re sitting at a desk all day, just moving around and having a stretch may be all you need!
SOCIALISE. Talking to someone or being social with friends is linked to feeling more awake and happy!
CHOCOLATE. Not so much you feel sick or even more sluggish, but just a few squares of dark chocolate (70% cocoa or more) can boost your mood almost instantly.
DRINK. Water. Water. Water. I can’t stress this enough. Even mild dehydration can cause sleepiness. So drink up!
