How Anyone Can Have More Energy

If you’re going to be at your brilliant best when you go out into the world, then you need to have energy. There’s just how it is! Without it, you’ll find that everything is an uphill battle. And if you have a job and a house and kids to look after, then you’ll already be facing an uphill battle. By working to give your energy a nudge in the right direction, you’ll find that you’re able to handle all that life throws at you much more easily. In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the key ways to improve your energy levels.

Get Exercising

It sounds counterproductive to say that to have more energy, you first must expel some energy, but that’s how it works. For reasons that we won’t go into here, exercising is one of the best methods for giving yourself more energy. If you ever wake up a little tired, then one of the best ways to make yourself feel more alert is to put on some running shoes and go for a jog. You’ll find that when you’re back, you’ll be a lot more energized, and especially so if you top off the run with a cold shower.

Rest Well

You’ll find that unless you’re consistently getting a full night of sleep, then you’re always battling with your energy levels. It’s just a lot more difficult to muster up the energy to do anything when we haven’t slept well. Luckily, sleep is one of those things that can easily be improved. It doesn’t feel like one of those things, but it is. It’s all about knowing what will help you to sleep well. If you’re avoiding screen time, taking CBD gummies or drinking a relaxing tea, and meditating before you hit the hay, then you’ll be much more likely to have a full night of sleep. Don’t accept that you’re destined to always sleep poorly — it’s just not true!

What’s Holding It Back?

As well as doing things to push your energy forward, it’s often a good idea to cut out the things that could be holding it back. For example, are you working too many hours? Are you drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes? Our lifestyles will have a huge impact on how much energy we have. If you can see where your energy might be going, then you’ll be able to wrestle back some control. 

Reduce Stress/Boost Happiness

Researchers have found that there’s a strong link between our stress and happiness levels and how much energy we have. It could be that the weight of the stress takes up all our energy. Whatever it is, it’s something that’s worth looking at. When we’re in the middle of stress, it can often feel like we just have to accept it, but that’s not true. There are many proven ways to reduce stress, including meditating, exercising, yoga, and talking with friends. If you’re constantly feeling tired, then focus on improving your happiness. It will make a difference.

  1. I always find that I have more energy if I am up and moving about. It just takes a lot of motivation to get there at the moment when all I want to do is snuggle under a blanket. x

    1. That’s so true Kim. I have to keep moving because we don’t have a cat flap and they need to go in and out 50 million times a day!!
