3 Ways To Naturally Boost Your Energy
Looking for an energy boost? Well, you have arrived.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I see so many patients that are suffering from chronic fatigue. It is so difficult to continue in your daily routines when you experience prolonged tiredness and lack of energy. Coffee has its benefits, but is not always a solution. Incorporating a healthier nutritional diet and easy-to-achieve daily routines are a good way to begin.
Patients need to be informed on the little things that can help them out in big ways. Your energy levels can impact the events of your entire day.
Were you able to complete all your tasks at home and at work with the attention they deserve? First things first, we believe that you should give your body the attention it deserves. It is the vessel that sails you along the lovely path we call life.
So, I am here to check you in, so that you can check out revitalized. Let’s Jump into these three natural remedies to boosting your energy!
1. Get More Sleep
Are you having trouble sleeping at night? Getting a full night’s rest can revitalize you and throw you back into action when the sun rises.
If you are having trouble falling asleep at night, heat yourself up a nice cup of calming chamomile tea and then lay down and try a couple of these brain tricks!
Reverse Your Routine
Repeat everything you did today in reverse order. You might only get to the middle of the day before your brain turns off and you are fast asleep.
Focus On The Breath
Lay down and focus on your breath. Breathe in, breathe out, ask yourself how the breath feels as it touches your upper lip. You will notice that your mind begins to wander and go all bananas on you trying to keep you up! Just laugh and be kind to yourself, tell your brain that it is a monkey and you need sleep. Bring the focus back to breathe and fall into your dreams.
Relax Your Muscles
Slowly work your way from head to toe down the body and release and relax all of your muscles. Then close your eyes and imagine a place of peace, calm, and serenity. Maybe for you, it is on the beach, the sunlight, or in a grassy grove beneath the moon. Imagine it with a smile, and lay back -you’ll be asleep in just a little while.
2. Set A Regular Wake-Up Time
There are a few simple things you can do to improve your energy when you wake up the sunshine. These methods include some natural remedies and daily habits that you can easily add to your routine!
Drink Apple Cider Vinegar
Your gut is begging for some healthy energy, and one way to provide this is with a shot of all natural, raw, cold pressed, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. It sure will give you a morning zing. It’s recommended that you mix it with a little bit of water so that you don’t burn your throat on the way down.
Apple Cider vinegar is great for your health, and it actually contains potassium enzymes that can help banish fatigue, and burn fat.
Take Ashwagandha daily! Ashwagandha is a fantastic root that comes from India and is also known as Indian ginseng. It is a potent ayurvedic herb that supports are adrenals and thyroid function, which are the two most essential energy regulators in the body.
Ashwagandha is also known to reduce stress and anxiety while boosting brain function. It is a safe herbal remedy that anyone can use and experience benefits.
Take A Cold Shower
The health benefits from a cold shower will last all day long. Taking a cold shower actually increases your heart rate and sends a rush of blood through the whole body for a spike on daily energy.
It also has the added benefit of healthy skin and hair, can stimulate weight loss, ease stress, alleviate depression, and help with sore muscle recovery.
So jump right in and have a laugh!
3. Get Into A Routine
Now that you went to bed, woke up rested, and started your morning with a jolt of energy, let’s talk about some simple things you can add to your daily routine to keep those energy levels high all day long!
Keep a move on at the office. It is essential to stay active throughout the day. And it is actually proven that taking small breaks every hour can increase the focus of your mind and help you approach your work with a clear head. Your boss won’t ask questions if your productivity increases.
Take these breaks strategically. For example, don’t down a Coca Cola, take a loop around the office, get some fresh air, and get back to work. Or stand up and do some quick stretches at your desk, and take a walk down the hallway.
Get Some Fresh Air
Invigorate your mind in multiple ways. Get some fresh air, and take a walk anywhere. Make walking a part of your daily routine, even if it is before or after work for just 10 minutes. Or try taking a dance class, reading a book, and giving yourself a break from the screen. Throw on some tunes and dance around your room, sing your favorite song, and activate those endorphins!
Mindfulness helps relieve stress, lower blood pressure, and improve sleep. You can practice mindfulness by focusing on your breath as you walk around. Focus on the way the wind feels against your face, how the shirt feels against your back, how your feet feel as they walk across planet earth, our home!
