Boosting Energy The Natural Way

It’s not a stretch to say that many of us are busy.  The world is a busy place, and most of us are very busy much of the time. Whether it’s with work, raising a family, travelling, exercising or just plain having fun, we’re always on the move. Amongst other things, such as poor diet and lack of sleep, has led to an increase in the numbers of people who are experiencing a lack of energy in daily life. Even myself as a health copywriter knows that it shouldn’t be like this; we should all be full of vitality waking up every morning looking forward to the day ahead, heading out of the door with a spring in our steps and it can be that way! Just check out these natural energy boosters and use them whenever you start to flag:

Meditate

Meditation is one of the best ways to keep your stress levels under control and refresh your mind. When you're feeling stressed, you use a lot of mental energy which can leave you feeling zapped of your strength. By focusing on your breath, even just for a couple of minutes, you can regain control and revitalise your mind.

Cleansing

Cleansing, when done the right way, using healthy natural ingredients and high-quality multivitamins, can help you to regain your lost energy by clearing your body of the bad stuff and feeding you those things that are good for you. If you’re looking for a good cleanse, IsaTonic has a full list of ingredients, all of which are pretty healthy, and they are pretty affordable, but there are lots of options out there. Research what’s best for you and take it slowly!

Say No

How will saying no help you to boost your energy levels?  It will lighten your load, and when you have less to do, you will spend more time relaxing and recharging your batteries? It’s pretty simple really.

Exercise

It sounds counter-intuitive, and often the last thing you want to do is hit the gym or yoga studio when you’re feeling fatigued. However, when you exercise, your body releases a small amount of norepinephrine and a little epinephrine both of which can give you an energy kick in small doses.

Take Some Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is one of the most prominent restorative herbs in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition, If you’re looking for a natural way of boosting your energy levels, that will also help to alleviate stress and improve things in the focus department, this is the herb for you. There are numerous ways you can take it, so it’s up to you to choose but do ensure that you are buying a quality supply of the stuff you get from Nootriment. There are so many poor quality herbs out there that people think they don’t work when they just haven’t bought from well.

Drink Your Water

When you’re dehydrated, you feel fatigued, foggy and generally perform more poorly on mental and physical tasks. So, if you suddenly start feeling tired, think back to the last time you had some water, and if it was a while ago, take a few sips, you’ll probably notice an immediate improvement in the perkiness department. It’ll do wonders for your skin too.

Drink Coca Tea

You might want to take some of that water in the form of coca tea, a great alternative to coffee, that provided an excellent natural pick-me-up and contains a whole host of nutrients including vitamins B1 and 2, C, and E.

Sleep Less/More

If you sleep too little or too often, it can make you feel fatigued throughout the day. The average person needs between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night, so work out exactly how many it is that you need and shuffle your schedule, so you get exactly that amount each night.  Essential for mental health.

Ginseng is Good

Asian Ginseng has long been used to stimulate one’s body when it is sluggish. It is also a vital adaptogen, and some people swear that it helps them to stay youthful and focused too. Oh, did I mention that Asian Ginseng has been proven to have anti-inflammatory properties also? It is a fantastic little root.

You can get the vitality back into your life, and the methods above will all work without you needing to resort to medical solutions or extremely unhealthy sugar-laden energy drinks.  Experiment if necessary, but do give them a go because you deserve to feel great as often as possible. Collaboration.
