Energy Booster

Fatigue and a lack of energy have become a part of life, especially now. Trying to find the answers to why we are feeling that way is not always going to be answered. We can however shift our focus and put our attention to what we can do to alleviate what we are feeling.

Trying the following energy boosters one at a time or more than one at a time can help you discover which ones will work for you in alleviating tiredness.

1. Energetic music

Different types of music have different effects on us, but you can learn which are best for you by trial and error. Once you find the music that wakes you up, keep it ready.

2. Sleep

It is recommended that we get 6-8 hours of sleep per night. Try drinking something warm before bed, or relax with a simple meditation.

3. Talk about something interesting

Have you ever seen a tired person start to talk about something they’re passionate about, and suddenly “wake up?” It’s a powerful technique you can use for yourself. Have a few “favorite” subjects that get you going.

4. Coffee

For some of us, caffeine makes us more tired when it’s abused, but short term, it can work wonders.

5. Deep breathing

Several slow deep breaths help oxygenate the blood supply better and especially seem to wake up the brain.

6. Move your body

Sometimes just getting up and washing the dishes, or walking around the house helps boost energy levels.

7. Exercise

It’s not a quick solution, but many people notice an increase in their energy level when they get regular aerobic exercise.

8. Hot and cold shower

Try a minute of hot water, then a minute of cold, alternating for six minutes. This isn’t for those with weak hearts, but it will wake you up. Incidentally, research shows that this also revs up the immune system.

9. Get outside

Often, a little sunshine and fresh air can be very energizing.
