We live in such a go, go society. We are constantly on the move. As a result, we get tired from all this running around. Here are some quick tips to get your energy back on track.
Take a breath
Just take a moment and notice your breathing. Once you do this you will probably, just through the notice, take a deeper breath. Continue to breathe deeply. The focus on your breath will temporarily quiet your mind as well. This can be done throughout the day as a quick refocusing and re-energizing.
Stretch (see below)
When we are constantly on the go, stress builds up in our muscles. Doing gentle stretches can re-energize and can bring the blood flow back into the muscles. Maybe make this a new habit to do every few hours, especially if you are working in front of a computer all day.
Lie down and meditate
Take time out and lie down. Set the timer for five or ten minutes and give yourself a timeout. You can meditate if you want or just experience the silence. You will feel so much better after you give your mind a rest. Be careful not to lie down for more than an hour during the day as when you get up, you will feel groggy instead of energized.
Exercise or take a walk
Find little exercises you can do for a few minutes here and there throughout the day. Or go for a five-minute walk to re-energize yourself.
Sometimes our blood sugar needs a pick-me-up. Instead, the usual coffee and donuts, head towards a whole food natural energy supplement. It will give a more natural energy boost, not the temporary one that the caffeine and sugar gives you.
Drinking water is so important, as when we feel tired, it can be a sign of dehydration. So, a real quick energy booster is drink some purified water.
Smile or even laugh out loud
Even if you must fake it at the beginning, give this a go. Even if you feel silly for a bit. This will affect your mood and your mindset and give you more energy.
Listen to your favorite music
This is a quick energy booster. You can even dance around to the music. Music is good for your brain health as well.
Recite some positive affirmations or get in touch with your vision
This can change your energy quickly as we are what we think. When we say these affirmations out loud they can be even more powerful in changing our energy. When we align with our vision, it is totally energizing.
Think of something that you are grateful for and feel it and hold that image for a few minutes. You will feel your energy change for sure with this one.
There are many more energy tips that you can add to this list. Just remember to actually do some of them and you will feel so much better for it.
Now I have a quiz for you. Take a guess as to my favorite energy booster and then email me your answer. I will send you a gift for taking a guess even if it is not the right one. Have fun and get energized!
To your good health.
