7 Ways to Boost Your Energy

Everyone would like to feel more energetic during the day. You naturally go through periods of higher activity which contrasts with times of relaxation. The problem occurs when more energy and concentration is required than we can give. Or when we try to sleep and can’t. Follow these invaluable tips to a new you!

If you are sitting around right now looking a little like this  lol

Listen up ;)

Tip # 1) Stay on a regular sleep schedule. You can’t stay up late during the weekend and suddenly on Monday morning wake up refreshed. If you do enjoy later nights on Friday and Saturday vow to get to bed early on Sunday to wake up rested.  Yeah, I know... if you are anything like me this is not going to happen any time soon! I feel you!

So, let's move on to tip #2 shall we?

2) Avoid the sugar and caffeine roller coaster. Eat some protein and foods with a bit of fat in the morning. The brain needs protein, and the body does not store it. You don’t have to eat very much- a glass of low-fat milk, a piece of cheese, or a handful of nuts will get you going instead of pure carbohydrates like a plain bagel. Ok so you are NOT going to stop eating sugar either are you?  Yeah... I didn't think so - so we will just keep it movin.

Tip # 3) Take a 5–10-minute power nap around lunch time. Even if you just close your eyes and let your mind drift you will be refreshed for the afternoon. Just close your eyes and daydream. This is also effective anytime you feel yourself not concentrating, reading the same material over and over. Just don't do it when you're driving or operating heavy machinery ;) Give in to the urge and completely relax for a few moments.

4) Drink more water and liquids. I know, everyone says to drink more fluids. But most of us are in a constant state of dehydration from filling up on coffee, tea, and sodas with caffeine - we just typically don't know it. This is very stressful to the kidneys and can cause irritation to the bladder. 

Keep a sports bottle filled with your favorite fruit infused flavored water or just plain water with you at all times. Set a goal- empty by lunch, refill, empty again by the time work is over. Carry plenty of water in the car too for you and your family. Also try Juicing and carry a bottle of fresh raw juice with you wherever you go, this will give you a boost of nutrition throughout your day!

5) Exercise regularly. This is easier said than done with a busy schedule. A poor conditioning level causes you to be short-of-breath and your heart to race when just doing simple things like climbing a flight of steps or doing household chores. Park farther away when shopping and walk Dust off that exercise machine or get an exercise tape to play when weather is bad. Set an example for the rest of your family and maybe they will join in too! 

Exercise can be simple A.F.!  

Turn on dance music or techno and move that a$$ while you clean the house, wash the dishes, do the laundry, mop the floors, vacuum.  Dance! Don't worry if your husband or kids or roommate looks at you like you lost your damn mind hahaha  it's ok they will get used it and it will help you get in shape. Just don't overdo it if you don't regularly do this. I'm telling you cleaning, and household chores will NEVER be the same again.  You may be wondering: Do I do this?? The Answer is you bet your a$$ I do!

Here is a song that just popped into my head

6) A joke a day keeps the doctor away. Seriously, laughter has many beneficial effects on the body. The brain chemicals for experiencing pleasure, happiness, and peace increase with good, hearty laughs. Live alone? Get a funny movie or watch a light-hearted comedy on tv. or Watch a short Stand-up video or two on YouTube. I would put one under here BUT I have a strange sense of humor and I am not trying to offend anyone so I will just leave this up to you ;)

7) Avoid confrontations and situations with negative people. 
You know who they are. 

They are not going to change but they will bring you and your mood down. The complainers, gossipers, and generally unhappy souls we all have to deal with on a day-to-day basis drain our energy if we allow them. Be polite but avoid arguing or getting hooked into listening to their constant problems.

8) Take regular, daily supplements of the highest quality if you need them. Our food and diets simply do not meet the amounts needed for maximum health. There is a difference between avoiding nutritional deficiencies and optimum performance. Drink a healthy all-natural Smoothie or Healthy juice at least once day.   see the article: Juicing for Your Health  and Benefits of Juice and Juicing Fresh Vegetables and Fruits
