4 Ways To Increase Your Energy
Having energy comes in a variety of ways. There’s always some new pill, coffee, and energy drinks, but what is the best way to increase your energy? Sometimes, it’s simply just a mental thing. There is no arguing that having the correct psychology is important. But the often-overlooked way of increasing your energy level is by getting in great physical shape.
It’s no secret that people who are fit, not only have more energy, but seem to always be more productive than every one else.
So lets take a quick and easy overview of some factors that influence our energy level:
1) Have A Passion.
No matter who you are, it’s always a great feeling to finish a task. But when you actually enjoy the task (with a passion), it’s even a better feeling. Find something that you love. Find something that fulfills you and drives you. Find something you’re passionate about. Then, set some goals within that passion. When you have a goal and it’s actually something you really want to achieve, you’ll be amazed how easy it is to find the energy to reach it.
2) Drink Lots of Water.
I’ve always heard that our body is made of like 80% water. Not even sure if it’s true, but it stands to reason that we can’t function well without lots and lots of water. Staying extremely hydrated is important not only when you exercise, but also when you’re just living life. If you can drink more than the required 8-9 cups of water every day, then you will be putting more water into your system, which will improve your blood flow and will naturally give you more energy.
3) Be Unsatisfied.
I’m a skeptic on most things. Which drives me crazy some times, but other times, it keeps me motivated to learn. As long as there is more things to learn, more ways to improve, more things to figure out, then you have more energy to perform those things. But when you know it all and you’re done learning, you’ll automatically have less energy. I believe the “dreamers,” are the ones who have most of the energy, because they’re the ones who are always wanting to improve.
4) Cancel Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
Instead, eat several small meals throughout the day. It not only keeps you full throughout the day, but it also keeps you from being “starving” and then over eating. There are thousands of experts who claim that this is much better for you anyways. The ideal amount of meals is 5 or 6, depending on how many hours you’re up. Just divide your calories into 5 or 6, and be sure to get that exact amount at each of your meals. This will keep you healthy, lean, and it will give you more energy because it will actually “rev” up your metabolism.
Let me say that again in case you missed because this is pretty darn interesting…. Yes, eating 6 meals per day will literally “speed” up your metabolism.
