7 simple things you can do to have more energy

qtq80-wV6OwpAre you often asking yourself, “Why do I always feel so tired?”  Almost everyone that I know is running on empty, exhausted all of the time and don’t know what to do about it.  Since your health isn’t a quick fix, developing new habits and practices is the only way to improve the function of your body, how you feel and increase your energy levels.

Here are 7 simple things anyone can do starting today for increased energy.

  1. Exercise in any form increases your energy instantly.  Most people think they’re too tired to move their bodies outside of the norm, but actually that lack of movement is what playing a roll with their lack of energy.  Get the blood flowing today with 7 of the best workouts here.
  2. Spices like cinnamon, turmeric, oregano, ginger and allspice can boost your energy levels because they’re jam-packed with anti-oxidants.  Herbs and spices are considered to be medicine for the body so adding them to your meals is a very simple way to improve your health and feel energized.  Garlic is one of my favorite ways to incorporate a natural boost.  Check out an easy way, delicious way to eat garlic here.
  3. Tea and its benefits are a constant conversation at Skinny Healthy Girl.  Making green tea a part of your routine will not only increase your energy, without dehydrating your body, it will also regulate your blood sugar, lower inflammation and improve your overall health.  Learn more about the benefits of green tea here.
  4. Yoga & meditation should be a part of everyone’s life, period, even in the smallest way.  Why?  Because our bodies are negatively affected and over stimulated with incredibly busy schedules; which directly affect the nervous system, immune function and blood pressure.  Even though you may think that you “don’t have time” for a little yoga or 10-minutes of meditative breathing, you do.  Try these best yoga workout DVD’s that can fit into any schedule here.
  5. Eat more vegetables versus meat to improve energy levels through the vitamins, antioxidants and fiber they provide.  What are the best vegetables you can eat for your health?  Tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers and anything GREEN will naturally increase your energy levels.
  6. Sleep is the obvious thing to do when it comes to increasing energy but unfortunately most people aren’t getting enough.  Research show that everyone should be getting 7-8 hours of sleep per night, any more or less can negatively affect your energy and overall health.  Turn off all electronics at least any hour before bedtime to allow your brain to decompress; overstimulation is one of the many factors affecting sleep nowadays.  Learn more about sleep & beauty here.
  7. Sex can increase energy in both men and women.  Believe it or not, when you think you’re too tired for sex, it’s probably because you’re not having enough of it.  You can actually boost your energy by getting busy in bed, in addition to improve your heart health.
