Whether it’s at that 2pm slump at work, or the first thing you feel when you wake up in the morning, we all feel tired, sluggish, and low-energy at some point. Here are 7 Ways To Boost Your Energy Right NOW and get you going no matter what the reason is!
7 Ways To Boost Your Energy Right NOW
1. Mid-day workout
While morning & night workouts are definitely the favorites, a mid-day workout (but not too hard!) can work wonders on your energy. Working out can even increase your productivity, so don’t just gain energy: do something with it!
2. Get some sun
Just 15 – 20 minutes outside gives you your daily dose of Vitamin D, which energizes you and prepares you for the rest of your day.
3. Get a snack
Healthy carbs (like whole grains – not potato chips!) give you a shot of glucose which acts like sugar in the blood stream, but without the crash.
4. Hit YouTube
Yes, you heard us right! Just make sure you find a comedy channel. Laugher obliterates stress like no other, and laughing boosts energy too.

5. Change your lighting
Think about it: Every night we turn the lights off when we go to bed, so of course our bodies associate darkness with sleep time! Take an assessment of the lighting when you feel tired – if it’s dark, brighten it up!
6. And change your temperature
When you’re too cold, your body goes into a kind of hibernation phase where it gets groggy and ready for sleep. Get warm and wake up!
7. Listen to tunes.
Music not only wakes you up, it actually increases your ability to be alert, too. So pick your favorite jams, pop on some headphones and listen your way to being awake!
