Women Empowerment has finally achieved the importance and success it always deserved and I’m here for it. Therefore, today I’m empowering all my babes out there who lack energy throughout the day. I’m sharing with you my 9 tips to boost your energy in a natural way.
You might have been under pressure and stress. Many times, these two factors drain you from the energy you used to have. It is not to blame that from time to time you might not feel like yourself. With a lower level of energy, your productivity can also decrease significantly. You might often feel sleepy, or you might also experience headaches. Everyone experiences different types of “symptoms” due to this lack of energy. However, getting back on track is crucial – after all, you can’t let this affect you and interfere with your well-being.
1. Let’s talk about stress
Stress can consume a huge amount of your energy. Therefore, it’s very important to see the positive aspects of life and avoid dark thoughts. You can find many activities that will help you achieve the positive mindset you’re searching for. For instance, you can try meditating, practicing yoga, running or going in for a hike. Find a hobby that keeps your mind focused and keeps your thoughts away from stress. However, if you feel like the problem might be a little too hard to control, you can join a women empowerment and support group. A little chat with a specialist and other ladies that struggle with the same things as you can turn out to be very helpful.
Nature heals! It’s one saying that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget. Another way of boosting your energy is starting to exercise at least two or three times a week. Sports improve your mental and physical state. Whilst working out in the gym is great, fresh air is actually way better.
Get out of the house and enjoy a breath of fresh air. Some people enjoy packing a mat and doing some exercises in the park. You can delight yourself with a beautiful view, and maybe even a walk home after you’ve finished. Take your mind off of your problems and you’ll see an improvement in your level of energy.
3. Stop overworking
Overworking can also consume huge amounts of your energy, therefore you should try to respect a well balanced schedule. Maybe learning how to say no won’t be that bad either. You should try creating a to do list in order to set your priorities straight. Remember that you are only human after all and that you’ll need a break at some point. If it’s needed, you can even reach out for some help from a colleague or friend.
4. Don’t skip breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why skip it? You have to find at least 20 minutes in the morning to sit down and enjoy some healthy food – I love to have spinach and eggs or salmon with fresh salad. You can choose anything that it’s healthy and will boost your energy for the day ahead. Although you might think carbs are better suited here, they will only make you feel more tired and sleepy.
Music is such a great way to cope with stressful periods in our lives. Therefore, adding music to your morning routine will give you an instant boost of energy. Start living the life you’ve seen in movies. Grab your toothbrush, put on your favourite tune and try to dance a little bit in the morning. It will do wonders to your mood!
6. Sleep well
Many people tend to sleep too little considering how alert their day is going to be and that impacts on their energy levels the next day. If you feel that your routine is not allowing you to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night, it’s time to make some changes. For example, you can establish a schedule for going to bed and waking up in the morning – ideally at the same time everyday. Also, make sure that you have a relaxing routine before you go to bed – watching movies can be replaced with reading and talking on the phone can be replaced with meditation. These are some examples, but you can find what makes you feel relaxed and do MORE of it.
7. Stay hydrated
Maybe the cause of this lack of energy you’re experiencing is actually dehydration. You should be drinking at least 2 litters of water everyday. If water doesn’t appeal to you, you can brew natural tea or some fresh juice. Trust me when I say, drinking water is key for keeping your energy level up.
8. Finding your inner peace
As a women empowerment supporter I suggest that, you lovely woman who is reading this, to find your inner peace and find moments to relax. We as women tend to have such a busy schedule and our well-being should always come first.
How to do find your inner peace? You can take time every day to look inward and meditate about your life and your expectations of it. Journaling and yoga did wonders for me, so you can try them as well.
9. Try to avoid looking too much at a screen
Even if your job consists of looking at a computer screen for hours, you have to try looking away from time to time. Computer and phone screens can impact your energy immediately. Therefore, this tiredness you’re feeling can be justified. Taking coffee breaks, walking your dog breaks or simply meditation breaks should definitely help here.
All things considered, there are quite a few effective ways to help you boost your energy naturally. Have you ever encountered such an energy lack? How did you get over it?
