Everyone needs some extra energy sometimes. Many people hit a wall in the afternoon and feel tired the rest of the day. We all struggle to get through our long to-do lists and need a boost of energy. Here are 7 tips to help boost energy quickly to help you get through the rest of your day.
1. Put Your Shoes On
If you’re at home and struggling to get through your to-do list a simple trick to help you get a boost is to put your shoes on. There is something about having your shoes on that helps you get going. You’re probably not going to lay in bed or sit down if you are wearing your shoes.
It may sound crazy but getting a quick workout can help you get going. It doesn’t have to be a full-blown sweaty workout. Even just a few jumping jacks, some stretching, or a walk around the block will help you wake up and get your tasks completed.
3. Turn Some Music On
Playing some of your favorite upbeat music can wake you up and give you an increase in energy. Make sure it’s music that will uplift your mood and get you moving.
4. Drink Water
If you are feeling fatigued, you could be dehydrated. Make sure you are consuming enough healthy fluids. Avoid beverages with too much sugar or caffeine, they may help hype you up for a short period but you could crash later and negatively affect your sleep.
5. Prioritize and Delegate
When all else fails and you just have too much to do and not enough time or energy it is time to lighten your load. First, look at your list and prioritize what you absolutely have to get done. If there is anything you can delegate to someone else then do it. By prioritizing and delegating you can reduce your list. Taking on too much and constantly being overwhelmed is not good for your health and will leave you feeling exhausted.
6. Analyze Your Sleep Schedule
Sleep is so important to our overall health and well-being. Are you getting enough sleep? Are you getting good quality sleep? Do you have good sleep habits? Take some time to analyze your sleep and make changes where needed.
7. See Your Healthcare Provider
If you are having chronic fatigue and are tired no matter what you do, you should see your healthcare provider. They will be able to do testing and further investigate what is causing fatigue. There may be something medically going on that needs to be addressed.
