10 Tips to Boost Your Positive Energy
By Larina Kase
Wouldn't it be great to pop out of bed in the morning, have flowing energy
throughout your day without any caffeine or candy bars, accomplish
everything you want, and feel great? For most people this would be a
dream-we could all use more energy!
I'll share with you 10 simple tips to boost your energy each day. The key is
consistency. You need to do these things regularly to feel the cumulative
1. Plan important activities when you have the most energy.
This is one of my favorite tips. Plan your schedule around your energy
level. Choose activities and projects that are naturally energy producing at
your low points in the day. If you drag in the morning, plan one of your
more enjoyable activities first thing. It may take some time to transition
your schedule but it will be worth it!
2. Do the work you love.
Nothing is as energy increasing as passion and enthusiasm. If you have no
interest in your work, it's unlikely that you'll ever have optimal energy.
This doesn't mean that you must love everything you do but at least some of
it must utilize your natural talents and interests.
3. Boost your energy by getting regular exercise.
This certainly does not come as a surprise to you. You know that you
exercise makes you feel good and boosts your energy. You just need to do
4. Know your personality style.
Your personality determines what is energy draining or producing for you. If
you're naturally an introvert you typically recharge by quiet time on your
own. If you're naturally an extrovert, you typically gain energy by social
time with others.
5. Eat right and watch your energy soar.
This is another one of those tips that you already know but, if you're like
most people, probably aren't doing. A diet rich in complex carbohydrates,
protein, and fiber will help you sustain energy and avoid the sugar roller
coaster that you get when you eat sugary snacks.
6. Keep the big picture in mind.
It's easy to get caught up in the moment of stressful situations and feel
exhausted. If, however, you remember the big picture including why you're
motivated to achieve your goal or why the small stuff isn't that important,
you'll feel energized.
7. Drink water.
One of the most common causes of fatigue is dehydration. We often mistakenly
assume that we're hungry but the fatigue culprit is often thirst.
8. Celebrate and reward achievements.
The more you focus on your achievements, both large and small, the more
success focused you will become. This will help you achieve more and all
this achievement is sure to boost energy.
9. Avoid energy-vampires.
You know these types of people. Just being in their presence seems to drain
your energy in the blink of an eye. Use assertiveness skills and limit your
time with them.
10. Take physical and mental breaks.
Monotony is exhausting. Periodically give yourself a break by a few moments
of mindless activity and quick stretching exercises or walking.
If some of these tips stand out to you as more energizing or practical,
select those and focus on implementing them consistently. You'll get and
keep your energy flowing.
