10 Tips to Follow If You Want to Have More Energy

Having enough energy is a key part of leading a healthy, productive life that you enjoy. When your energy levels are low, you aren't able to devote time to work, play and important relationships. Here are ten tips to help support an energy-filled life.


  1. Exercise Regularly

It seems counterproductive, but exercise can actually help you when you are low on energy. While the last thing you may want to do is exercise when you feel exhausted, you should consider a simple walk. Health experts have found that a brisk ten minute walk will increase energy levels for up to two hours. These same studies have shown that if you choose to extend these walks to ten minutes every day for a week, your overall energy and mood will be increased.

  1. Avoid Stress

Stress consumes vast amounts of energy. There are various ways you can reduce your stress and anxiety, including meditation, therapy, yoga, joining a support group, exercise, researching Thrive side effects or talking to a loved one.


  1. Utilize Caffeine

Strategic use of caffeine can be a great way to combat exhaustion and low energy levels. This does require some planning, however. If you drink caffeine too late in the day, it can interfere with your sleep cycle. Try having one or two cups of coffee in the morning to jump start your day.


  1. Limit Alcohol Use

Alcohol is a depressant and can lower your energy level. Having a beer or cocktail at lunch can have an impact on your energy for the rest of day. If you want to have more energy at night, avoid having a drink with dinner. This doesn't mean that you can't enjoy an adult beverage, but stay mindful of when you need extra energy and stay clear of alcohol at that time.


  1. Eat Regular Meals

Health experts say that eating breakfast can mean having more energy throughout the day. Studies have also shown that missing meals can lead to a feeling of fatigue. Plan ahead and make it a priority to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.


  1. Stick to a Healthy Diet

Eating junk food and unhealthy snacks can sap your energy. A healthy diet includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, protein and minimally processed foods. Make water your preferred beverage and stay hydrated throughout the day.


  1. Try Napping

Taking a power nap can be helpful when your energy level is low. Studies by the National Institute of Mental Health have shown that a sixty minute nap can reduce information overload and increase alertness.


  1. Have a Snack

Snacking between meals can help with energy levels, but it shouldn't be just anything. Health experts say that snacks should contain protein, like peanut butter or a handful of nuts, which helps increase energy.


  1. Swap Out Sugar For Whole Grains

Balanced blood sugar helps keep energy levels consistent. Eating sugary foods causes a spike in blood sugar, which then rapidly drops and can leave you feeling drained. If you eat sugary foods throughout the day, your energy levels can be severely impacted. Whole grains are a more consistent source of fuel and won't leave you feeling tired.


  1. Visit Your Doctor

If you have been trying to increase your energy levels with little to no success, you may want to consider a trip to the doctor. Low thryoid function causes low energy levels and exhaustion. A simple blood test can determine if this is the case and your doctor will most likely prescribe a medication that can help. Anemia, which is a reduced amount of red blood cells, can also be a culprit when it comes to low energy. This can also be addressed with medication.

Don't settle for a life of low energy and exhaustion. Try to implement just a few of these tips to see if they have an impact on your energy and, when in doubt, visit your doctor.
