Quick and Easy Ways to Get More Energy

Updated on January 26, 2015

Energy Boosters

No matter how well you take care of yourself, no matter how often you eat right and exercise, you’re still bound to succumb to stress, heavy workloads, occasional sleeplessness, and grueling demands on your time and energy.

During these times, you need to have an arsenal of energy boosters that can pick you up, give you a swift kick, and get you going again in a short amount of time. Having enough time to do everything on your list is essential to getting through every day - knowing you’ve done the best you can do.

But when your energy levels falter, low energy and fatigue sets in and renders you nearly paralyzed. We all know that eating well and exercising can boost energy levels and that quick pickups in the afternoon can be solved by a cup of tea, a quick walk, or a handful of nuts.

But many energy problems can be solved by adding a few simple and surprising tricks that you’ll be delighted to know about.

Do yourself a favor and add these quick energy fixers to your arsenal of fatigue-fighter -

Deep Yoga Breaths

You may notice that when you experience stress and fatigue, your breaths tend to come in short spurts rather than deep, cleansing intakes of oxygen. These short bursts add stress to your body and weigh heavily on how you feel. When you breathe properly, you increase your oxygen level and this can benefit your brain and your body.

Fast

You wouldn't think that going without food could be an energy booster – and it isn’t recommended that you do it during a full day of multi-tasking. But when you fast periodically, you can achieve an adrenaline rush and an increase in your metabolism that benefits you in many ways, including energy levels. It also works wonder for cleansing impurities in system too.

Omega-3

Are you getting enough Omega-3 fats in your diet? If not, you may experience energy slumps more often than you should. I’m sure you’ve heard of the abundant health benefits of Omega-3 fats. They come in nuts, fish, especially salmon, edamame, and some oils, such as flaxseed oil. You’ll feel much more alert and energetic by adding this valuable nutrient to your diet plan.

Volunteer

This is an instance where adding something else to your bursting schedule can boost your energy and increase your happiness, self-esteem and mood. Doing something for someone else can turn around feelings of fatigue and tremendously boost your energy. It can be a type of endorphin that shoots positive energy to your brain.

Also include the obvious happiness-boosters in your life. Laughing, smiling, setting goals for yourself and getting enough sleep can mean more to your energy levels than you ever imagined.

The mind is so powerful when it comes to having enough energy to do it all. Take some time during the day to feed your mind and relax it to prepare for the times that it has to perform.

Get inspired about your life and what you do and have - - - and those lethargic feelings will become non-existent.

What do you do to for quick energy?
