How to Improve your Energy? 5 Steps

Updated on April 19, 2011

We all feel tired once in a 

1. Sleep (Not just one night, but good sleep spread out over a week should re-energize you for a while). If you can't sleep one long night, try polyphasic sleeping. This is what Einstein and many other well known scientists did in order to maximize time-work.

2. Foods (High in Protein - low in fat + Berries. Blueberries are the absolute best for energy and memory). Eating a breakfast of fruits really help. Fried foods won't give you that noticeable boost of energy. Coffee is also a good energy booster despite its bad reputation. It's health benefits such as preventing a number of cancers (colon cancer, etc) outweigh it's negative effects (stomach aches).

3. Water - We're obviously make of 70% of water. Just reducing our water percentage by a few percentage would make use totally tired. Water is also the universal solvent. ALL cells, blood, and vital processes are done in water.

4. Motivation - Do you have more energy watching TV or doing homework? I used to get D's in my freshman and sophomore year and had a GPA of 2.8. That was because I felt tired all the time because all I wanted to do was die. A lot has changed since then. I found my life purpose as a Biochemist and I was rarely tired (except when I pull and over-nighter). I finished my Jr year with a 3.95 GPA.

5. Exercise - This may sound like a cliche, but exercising increases blood flow to all parts of the body. The brain is the single organ that uses most of the oxygen in the body which why blood is pumped to the brain before the others. In addition, exercising has been proven to increase the rate of neuron birth many times which is why athletes are often the smartest people.
