A lack of energy is something that can affect all of us from time to time, but when it becomes chronic it is frustrating and it can be a sign of a underlying issue that needs to be addressed. This are several components that need to be considered with this issue.
We want to make sure that we address long term health as well as just the desire to have “instant” energy.
9 Practical Steps to Increasing Your Energy
- Do a colon cleanse: When the colon is clogged it can cause one to be sluggish and have low energy. I would suggest doing a colon cleanse at least once a year.
- Improve cell health: Each cell has what is called mitochondria. That is like a car battery is to a car which gives you your energy. When that gets run down it also makes a person more fatigued and more susceptible to chronic illnesses. The three supplements that are very helpful for cell health are ascorbate C (buffered vitamin C), glutathione and CoQ10.
- Diet: Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, sulfur rich foods and stay away from junk food, trans-fats and high fructose corn syrup.
- Stress: Deal with stress as that will wear one down as well. Exercise helps, and there are some supplements and practical things that can be done. High levels of stress will sap you from your strength.
- Drink vegetable juice: Losing the fiber during juicing makes them easy for your body to absorb and digest. And because less work is required for your body to reap the nutritional benefits, you’ll notice an increase in energy. This will help eliminate toxins from the body while also feeding your cells.
- Quality sleep: Go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time even on weekends. If you need extra sleep go to bed a little earlier. Do not have any caffeine after 3 pm, but I would suggest eliminating it completely.
- Drink plenty of water: Dehydration will cause one to feel tired or exhausted. Since our bodies are made up of mostly water, even small drop the level of H2O in our body is enough to affect your metabolism. You should drink filtered water.
- Increase intake of B vitamins: You especially want to get enough B12 in your food as well as your supplements.
- Exercise: Reducing calories and increased physical activity will send oxygen and nutrients to your body’s cells, which will help your heart and lungs work more efficiently. Because of this that will boost energy levels. You need aerobic exercise and strength training.
