Natural boosts for your energy

by frank-stuart

We can all feel fatigued sometimes. Study, work, life, stress and social activities can all add up and culminate into feelings of tiredness and burnout. But with these simple tips, you’ll be able to keep your energy from flagging.


Depriving yourself of sleep is one of the key causes of feeling fatigued. Ensure that you get at least 7 to 9 hours of reasonable sleep every night. This doesn’t necessarily mean having to sleep early, but whatever time you do sleep, ensure that you fulfil a solid, restorative night’s sleep. Don’t oversleep either, that can also cause tiredness.

Stay active

Though it’s hard to sustain motivation to exercise when you’re feeling tired, physical activity will rejuvenate your body, circulate oxygen to your brain and reduce stress. You don’t have to do a strenuous workout, but even something simple like going for a 20 minute walk or some yoga stretches will help you fight your flagging energy levels.

Eat well

This goes without saying, but is necessary to reiterate. Ensure you’re eating a balanced diet and not depriving yourself of food. Also ensure that you eat small meals and healthy snacks throughout the day so that you sustain energy levels over the hours and help keep your blood sugar steady. Check out these tips on eating well.

Stay Hydrated

Sometimes fatigue and feeling light headed is really just a consequence of being dehydrated. Ensure you keep yourself well-hydrated with a recommended 8 glasses of water a day.

Surround yourself with the right people

Feelings of tiredness and lack of energy is often tied to the people you surround yourself with. Negative people can make you feel like you are expending more energy, whereas positive people imbue you with energy and feelings of happiness. Surround yourself with companions who promote happy feelings rather than negative feelings within you.

Be positive

As you should surround yourself with positive, light people, you , yourself should remain positive. Yes, there are stresses and emotional turmoils in life, but having a positive outlook will help you overcome those and remain calm in the face of stress. Staying positive is also less taxing than being stressed, so it wouldn’t drain your energy. Meditation, exercise, spending time with friends and doing social activities will help you stay positive.
