GuidanceResources: 5 Tips for Boosting Energy

Just a few, easy lifestyle changes can help you boost your energy naturally.

Stay hydrated:
Even slight dehydration can leave a person feeling tired and lethargic. Keep a tall glass of water or a water bottle with you throughout the day.

Get moving:
As little as 10 minutes of exercise a day can improve energy levels and mood. Physical activity, even walking, is a great energy booster.

Get adequate sleep:
Getting seven to nine hours of sleep per night is optimal. Aim to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on the weekends.

Choose healthy snacks:
If you’re going to snack, make smart snack choices. Have a couple of snacks that combine protein, fiber and a little fat, such as an apple and string cheese or yogurt and nuts.

Reduce stress:
Stress has a major impact on energy levels. Stress can leave a person feeling mentally and physically exhausted. Try to take 20 minutes for yourself every day just to relax.
