Energy Boosters

As summer winds down, maybe you’re finding yourself a little fatigued right now.

Perhaps that vacation wasn’t quite as refreshing as you hoped it would be or you over scheduled yourself earlier this year not thinking about how much energy each thing would take out of you. If this sounds like you, there are things you can do to give yourself a boost of energy right now. Below are some energy boosters that have worked for me and others over the years. Try them out and figure which ones work for you.

1. Energetic music

Different types of music have different effects on us.  When I was training for marathons, I was always told that I needed to listen to fast music as it would make me run faster.  If you’re looking for a boost, try some fast-paced tunes to wake you up and give you that jolt of energy you need.

2. Sleep

It is recommended that we get six to eight hours of sleep per night. If you have trouble falling asleep, try a cup of hot tea before bed. It always does the trick for me.

3. Talk about something interesting

Have you ever seen a tired person start to talk about something they’re passionate about and suddenly “wake up”? I’ve seen this often with my daughter. When she’s dragging through the afternoon, I’ll ask her something about Harry Potter and suddenly she finds her energy to tell me all about her favorite topics. This is a powerful technique you can use for yourself.

4. Coffee

For some of us, caffeine works wonders not only for that pick-me-up we need during a day when we’re dragging – it can also keep us wide-awake at night when we want to sleep. So, gauge this one carefully and use it as needed.

5. Deep breathing

Several slow deep breaths help oxygenate the blood supply better and help wake up the brain.

6. Have an energy drink

The verdict isn’t in on most of them, but it’s a cheap option to try.

7. Move your body

Sometimes just getting up and washing the dishes or walking around the house helps boost energy levels.

8. Exercise

It’s not a quick solution, but many people notice an increase in their energy level when they get regular aerobic exercise.

9. Hot and cold shower

Try a minute of hot water, then a minute of cold, alternating for six minutes. Incidentally, research shows that this also revs up the immune system.

10. Get outside

Often a little sunshine and fresh air can be very energizing.
