How To Create Amazing Energy

Performance - How To Create Amazing Energy

To many, energy is life. When we have lowered energy levels life just becomes a little more difficult. Time with our families, kids, work responsibilities, and relationships tend to be the catalyst in us feeling lowered energy levels. So what can we do? It is just our “age?” Not so fast. There are many factors that can drain our energy levels. If you remove these barriers, many times you can jumpstart your energy to an entirely new level. Let’s look at what we can do.  

1.Avoid The Drama 
Nothing will pull your energy levels down more than drama in your life. Negative friends, colleagues, and many times family will be the ones that pull you down. Do you best to eliminate the drama. If its not family, then cut it off, it’s just not worth it. If it’s family, then make the time extremely limited. Your energy will skyrocket after that. 

2.Avoid the Whites 
Ok easy, that’s not a political statement. Yes I’m talking about the white processed foods. White flour, white sugar, and any processed food which has the strong ability to steal your energy. Focus on eating whole foods. If there is a long list of ingredients, it’s probably processed too much.

3.Avoid Sitting Too Much 
We have to move. We are designed to move. Exercise may be difficult to get into the habit of, but the lack of exercise is robbing you of valuable energy levels. Set a goal to move at least 15 minutes 6 days per week of continuous exercise for empowering your health

4.Avoid Sleeping Too Little 
We must get great rest. It is vital for so many functions inside the body. Set a goal to get into a deep stage of sleep and maintain a great sleep schedule for 6-8 hours per night. You might just find that you don’t need the morning coffee when you wake up. 

5.Avoid Being Dehydrated 
We are made of 70% water. Remember that by the time you are thirsty, you have already been dehydrated for close to an hour. We must drink water continually. Yes you will pee a lot. It’s ok. What about the alternative? Aim for half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day and watch your energy levels shoot to the sky.
