Rocket Fuel Please: 3 Ways to Boost Your Energy

I don’t know about you, but as I get older, I seem to have less energy than I used to.  I realize this is a normal process and I also understand that because of the fact that I weigh more than I should, that this is to be expected, but isn’t there some ways I could boost my energy throughout the day?

Recently, while reading SUCCESS magazine, I came across three ideas for ways that you can boost your energy.  I would like to share them with you here.

If you’re feeling worn out, tired and exhausted regularly, here are some simple ways you can channel hidden energy you didn’t know you had.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

When we are stressed, we tend to inhale quickly and hold our breath.  Don’t do that.  Really, it’s bad.  Try “diaphragmatic breathing”; it’s the same technique taught by yoga instructors worldwide.  Simply sit straight up with good posture, put one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach.  Inhale slowly through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth.  As you breathe, you’ll feel your stomach expand, meaning your diaphragm is filling your lungs with air. 

Ditch the Second Cup

Coffee is notorious for being the fuel behind a quick pick-me-up, but drinking several cups a day can lead to burnout.  As in crash and burn.  Find a way to wean your way down to one cup a day.  If you’re hooked on the flavor, try a great-tasting tea blended with chicory, carob or roasted barley.

Recharge Your Batteries

This means that you should eat more alkaline-forming foods.  Good eats like figs, leafy greens, almonds and cantaloupe are staples of alkaline-based diets and have been proven to prevent ailments like kidney stones and osteoporosis.  Plus, they’re often recommended to treat a lack of energy.  Oh, and they taste good—which is always a plus.

I understand that these might be just temporary fixes.  If you have an unhealthy lifestyle, you should obviously focus on trying to get more healthy.  In the meantime, these simple things can really help you out.  I encourage you to try some of these out and let me know if they were helpful to you.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
