7 Ways to Boost your Energy
Eat more healthy fat
I put this first because it is SO effective. Healthy fats like dark chocolate, avocado, tree nuts and tree nut butters, coconut oil, and grass fed butter are great things to add to your diet to get more energy.
Our brains are mostly made up of fat, so when we don’t get enough in our diet, we can feel tired and lethargic.
Drink more water, less sugary & caffeinated drinks
Our bodies are made up mostly of water, and all our organs (including our brain) need it to work properly. When we bog our bodies down with sugar and caffeine, we get dehydrated. Dehydration can cause us to feel more irritable, stressed, and can also cause brain fog and tiredness.
Try drinking at lease 1 gallon of water a day. This will help to flush out any nasty toxins from your body, make you feel better, and help get rid of any sugar cravings.
Drink your greens
Drinking green juices can be a great way to boost your energy!
You can either make green juice at home yourself, or buy it from almost any local grocer. My favorite recipe for green juice comes from Your Zen Life by Teresa Palmer, and is a great way to keep you energized throughout the day!
Get Moving – Exercise
Exercise is one of the best ways to boost energy! Even if you are now groaning, its true. Exercise gives us endorphins, the chemical in the brain that triggers happiness and is what they call getting a “runners high”. Think of it this way, how many people actually say after working out, “Man, I really regret that workout.”
I cant think of any.
Diffuse Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is a good way to create a energized, or relaxed environment in your home. Essential oils like orange, lemon, grapefruit, peppermint and rosemary are great for staying energized. Check out this post by Whole New Mom to see a list of 7 great essential oils for energy boosting.
Get upside-down, with yoga
Yoga is my personal favorite way to boost my energy. Not to mention, yoga practice can build muscle, and make you feel super strong and confident.
Getting your blood pumping and circulating properly can give you a good flow of energy and optimism! Check out this article at YogiApproved.com to see their advice on Yoga poses for boosting energy.
Try a hormone balancer if needed
Hormone imbalances can definitely lead to fatigue and edginess. They are also getting more and more common in the United States as there are so many pesticides, GMOs and unknown chemicals in most of our food, especially dairy and meat products. If you think you may have a hormone imbalance, there are a lot of natural remedies you can use to re-balance your hormones.
It’s my suggestion that you do NOT settle for over the counter birth control to balance hormones. That is a very temporary fix, and can cause problems with fertility, and birth defects later on.
