We all have those moments during the day or week when we lack energy and crave for fuel to get ourselves back in the saddle. Fuel to feel alive and enjoy everything life has to offer.
Most people know a few ways to attain fuels that lead to a high energy level, but maintaining that level seems slightly more difficult.
In this post you’ll find ways of gaining high energy levels you may not have thought of but do work amazingly well.
They will maintain and even boost your energy level to a higher degree throughout the day.
Here are the keys:
Food and drinks
Food is the number one energy source that we all know of. And just a quick reminder fast foods and fast, high sugar foods will weaken your energy level.
So remove all sweets, chips, fast foods and sodas from your home and replace them for whole foods, water, fruits, (apples, bananas, oranges, kiwis) greens, vegetables, potatoes, brown rice, etc.
Everyday put a can of water on the dinner table and drink regularly to keep your energy level balanced.
Avoid using alcohol as a nightcap. It will disrupt your sleep stages and will leave you unrested in the morning.
We all know this, but it’s important to stay active in a world where walking and moving our bodies is not really acquired anymore. So put on your sneakers and go for a run.
Take a 30 minute walk, do some bicycling, yoga or jumpropes. Working out and moving your body creates high energy level for the long term.
No time to workout? Create a solid proof early rising habit
Create an environment that makes you happy. Get rid of stuff in your home that makes you feel depressed. Decluttering your home will give you peace of mind and inspiration.
Put your favorite pictures and motivation quotes on your desk or hang them on your walls. Create natural light in your home. Natural light is a high energy source.
Surround yourself with positive people who give you high levels of energy. People who share the same or similar interests and people you feel connected to.
If people tend to bore you, be curious and make it your goal to find out what’s fascinating and unique about them.
Stay away from people who keep putting you down and suck the energy out of you every time again.
Spend time in nature. Trees, birds and green fill you with energy. It don’t matter if you believe it or want it or not. Go for a walk or run in the park or the woods and you got two for the price of one.
Sincerely observe and appreciate nature for 5 minutes or more and you’ll feel an immediate energy boost. You’ll be aching for more.
Be kind to your loved ones, friends, neighbors, relatives and to strangers. Give people your smile when you walk the streets or when you do groceries.
Stop judging or gossip. Don’t participate in these negative energies. Be the person that sends energy by being kind and you’ll notice your energy level rising. Practice patience and understanding.
Help people even if it’s in the smallest manner. Compliment, give away stuff you don’t need. Spent money on people in need. Donate to charity. Help out your friends or relatives with moving.
Listen to people who need some way of support or someone to talk to. Regular acts of kindness is one of the most effective ways to maintain a high energy level.
Take a 10 or 15 minute powernap. It’s all you need to quickly boost up your energy levels and feel fueled for hours to go.
Think and feel grateful daily. Thank the universe for everything that is in your life, for everything beautiful you discover, create and experience.
Gratitude for your family and friends, for clean water, fresh food, a healthy body, for being all that you are sends a positive signal to your body that will give you great amounts of energy.
