8. Get plenty of rest
I don’t function well at all when I’m tired. I try to get enough sleep at night, but it doesn’t always pan out in my favor. I love having the option to take a power nap every so often. Whether it’s a 10 minute cat nap or an hour long snooze, catching a few winks in the afternoon can do wonders for your energy level.
7. Drink lots of water every day
As soon as you begin to feel low on energy, drink a big glass of cool water. If you’re staying hydrated during the day then you are drinking water regularly and not waiting until you feel thirsty. I was told that feeling thirsty was a sign that dehydration was already setting in. Your body needs plenty of water to keep things running smoothly. When there isn’t enough water to carry waste through and out of your body, you tend to feel a bit sluggish.
6. Drop a few pounds
5 to 10 pounds can make a world of difference in the way you feel during the day. Losing a small amount of weight will lighten your load and take some of the strain off of your knees and back. This slight drop in pounds can increase the amount of energy you have by a lot.
