4 Natural Ways to Boost your Energy

923815_953524334663153_482527648_nWe’ve all experienced that point in the day when you just want to crawl under cozy blankets or at least have a quick cat nap, but a million errands have your name written all over them. I love naps so I’ll totally get 6 or less hours of sleep and mid day I’m paying for it if I don’t get a nap in. When I feel my body wanting to shut down here are my four favorite things to do to rev up my engine and finish my day strong:

1. Find a hydration station. Most of the time when you feel low on energy it’s because you’re dehydrated. Next time you’re feeling low energy before you grab a cappuccino, drink a quart of water. You’ll be amazed at how refreshed you feel. Another great way to make sure your energy is always up throughout the day is to schedule your water breaks. That’s right! Put them in your phone like appointments every 4 hours and you’ll stay well hydrated throughout your day. I like setting my water breaks for 8am 12am 4pm 8pm and I always have the most energy and look my best when I’m well hydrated.

2. Grab Fast Fruits. Let’s say you’ve hit your water breaks but you just haven’t had time to get a good meal in and the energy tank is on empty. The second best thing to rev up your energy is fruit. If you’re a little emotional and feel low there’s nothing like the color, smell, and juiciness of fruit to boost you back to your bright and beautiful self. I love tangerines, pineapple, and bananas. Try keeping a fruit bag in the car of apples, oranges and bananas or store strawberries, pineapple, or watermelon in the fridge for a fast energy boost.

3. Dance. I know you think I’m joking but it’s one of my favorite ways to boost my energy. When I’m in the car all by myself and the traffic isn’t moving I just turn my music up and sing out loud to my favorite artist. If you’re in the office try going over to your co-worker and starting the electric slide (If you don’t know how to do the electric side please stop life now and learn…you’ll thank me later.) Dancing increases circulation and if you’re not that good your laughter will boost your energy as well so you have a win win situation.

 4. Workout in the morning. Studies have shown that working out in the morning burns more calories and increases your heart rate for the rest of the day. You can toss in your favorite workout video, go for a walk around the neighborhood or hit the gym. No matter what you choose you’ll have more energy for the rest of your day if you warm up your engine in the morning.
