Easy Tips To Jump Start Your Energy Levels


Feeling Tired These Days? No Energy? 
Feeling tired with low or no energy? Join the club! Most people are alwasy tired from sun up to sun down with little of no energy at all. Most of us simply accept this condition as a way of life. But being tired all the time is a signal from the body that something is inherently wrong.


Unfortunately, most people just dismiss these warnings and comfort themselves with  " I just need some time off. Or, it's not a big deal, I feel like this all the time".  Most never really listen to the body, they do not address the problem and matters only get worse.  

It's kind a sort a like a leaky faucet.  It is irritating and there is something wrong. But, you try to buy yourself more time. Most simply hope and pray the leak will go away. However, it only gets worse and as time goes on it becomes more expensive to fix.  Most people treat their bodies the same way. And yes, the same is true with your body and your energy level. Feeling tired all the time is simply the body trying to tell you something and if you don't fix it, it will only get worse.

Here are a few simple Energy Boosters that will just start your energy levels quickly. Resurrect those extra energy reserves easily with the following pick me ups. You may like some better than the others. Try them all and select the ones that work best for you. Work them into a plan that you can do follow 4-6 times a week.

Simple Tips To Get Energized
Give These  Easy Tips A Try! Select 5 Of Your Favs! Then Put Them To Work For You

1. Breathe Deeply
Oxygen is an excellent source of energy, but we do not take advantage of this God given source. The art of Yoga uses this system to energize and strengthen the body. Fresh air also helps rid the body of waste materials too. Start each day with this exercise and it will give your brain and muscles and instant boost.

Take a step out side if you can. Or, sit down in a comfortable spot with your back straight and head level. Keep your mouth closed and inhale deeply through your nose. Try to bring the air deep down into your tummy. If you are doing this correctly place one hand on your tummy the other on your rib cage and you should feel them expand. Try to hold your breathe while you count slowly to 16. Repeat this up to 10 times. It doesn't get any easier than this.


2. Drink Plenty of Water

Dehydration is a common energy drainer. How much water do you drink each day? Try drinking a large glass when you wake up and any time you feel like you need a pick me up. If you do not feel thirsty try to drink a minimum of eight 8 oz glasses of water everyday.

3. Supplement Your Diet

You may be suffering from malnutrition. Your body may simply be missing out on the required key nutrients, minerals and vitamins it needs. Exactly what vitamins and minerals you should have everyday? learn more Running on empty so to speak can hurt. If you are not getting the daily requirements in your diet, consider taking essential vitamin supplements. I have found Iron and vitamin Bs to be the biggest culprits. However, diseases that may have an affect  on energy levels are blood sugar and/or thyroid.  These may require a special look. Check with your doctor.

4. Eat a Healthy Starchy Snack

A healthy food or snack high in carbs like toast, a banana or an orange will provide an easy source of energy. Forget the fast food and potato chips.

5. Take a Quick 2 Minute Shower
This is really invigorating and it stimulates your blood circulation. Start with warm water and alternate to cool. Avoid Hot and avoid Cold. And avoid wetting your head as these sudden changes in temperature might make you dizzy.

6. Give Yourself A Towel Rub

What a way to start each day! Soak a clean hand towel in hot water and squeeze it out. Then begin to rub you skin vigorously working from toe to head. Redip the towel in hot water when it cools off.

7. Go for a Brisk Walk

Rather then slumping in front of the TV or computer because you are too tired go for a 30 minute brisk walk, or jog in place, or stomp your feet, or shake your arms and hands. Get the blood flowing and when you do oxygen will begin flowing to your tissues.

 
8. Stand or Sit Up Straight

Posture is key. Good posture improves energy levels. Do not sit slouched over. Stand tall, shoulders back, tummy in, or from a sitting position do the same.

9. Manage Your Weight

If you are over weight you might need to shed a few pounds. Carrying around the excess weight can make you very tired. Losing weight is simple, just take in less than physically exerted. There are no quick fixes. Just be careful that you are still getting your required vitamins and nutrients. If you are on medication that cause you to gain weight, please consult with your doctor. Even if you lose 1-5 pounds it will improve your energy level.


 10. Take a Nap

Here's a shocker! A  short 20-30 minute nap will do wonders for you. It will revitalized your mind and your body especially right after lunch. Your body systems are busy working on breaking down your lunch. Your concentration and memory may suffer. A short siesta after lunch will revive you like a charm. (This one is my personal favorite)







Vitality is the key word here. If you still experience difficultly in preparing quality nutritional foods for every meal a quality vitamin supplement program may be an excellent choice.
