Boost Your Energy Naturally With These 5 Simple Strategies Are you in need of an energy boost? Are you looking for ways to increase your energy and feel less tired? Are you ready to increase your energy for good caffeine free? Then this post is for you #energy #fitness #healthyliving #naturalTruth time. On most days, I’m fuelled by caffeine.

I wake up at 4:15, I run around during the day checking things off my to-do list, and then I crash into bed around 10:30 or 11:00. The next day, I begin it all again.

While I objectively understand our need for 7-8 hours of sleep each night, and I recognize the health benefits – both physical and mental – for getting enough rest, I still struggle to listen to my own advice.

And what do I get in return? A foggy brain, a short temper, and I’m always hungry. 🙄

With our increasingly busy lives at both work and at home, we face more demands on our time than ever. You don’t need me to tell you that this kind of strain takes a serious toll on our energy levels, which leaves us tired, irritable, and overwhelmed.

Can you relate? Do you find yourself ever running on “E”? Are your afternoons powered by caffeine? 🙋

If so, then I’d love for you to join me on my journey to start naturally recharging our batteries. 🙌

Yep, it’s time to put down that extra cup of coffee and give these five simple strategies a try. Find which one(s) work for you, and then let me know how it goes below! 👇

Boost Your Energy Naturally With These 5 Simple Strategies

1) Sleep and Energy Levels

As I mentioned above, getting enough sleep is a given. Of course, we need enough rest, right? 💁

But understanding the importance of sleep and actually practicing your ideal bedtime routine are two entirely different things.

It’s true that the amount of sleep we need varies from person to person, but for most of us, the optimal amount is about 8 hours. So if you want to boost your energy naturally, then decide what time you need to wake up, count back 8.5 hours, and set an alarm for your bedtime. When the alarm goes off, it’s time to get ready for bed. No excuses.

2) Exercise and Stamina

I know, this one seems a bit counter-intuitive, but hear me out.

Believe it or not, exercise does not simply tire you out. In fact, according to Everyday Health, getting regular exercise can profoundly increase your energy levels.

How, you ask? By engaging in regular exercise, you improve your physical fitness, which also increases your stamina. And stamina, my friend, is exactly what you need. Because with increased stamina, you can power through your day with energy to spare.

3) Don’t Skip Meals

One of the best ways to naturally boost your energy levels is to eat regular meals.

As you know, your body gets its energy from the food you eat. Therefore, if you start skipping meals, or if you find yourself grazing on empty calories throughout the day, you’re not filling your body with the nutrients it needs. And surprise! Your energy levels quickly dissipate. (Hello, afternoon slump!) So do your best to eat regular, balanced meals throughout the day to keep those energy levels up.

4) Banish Unhealthy Stress:

While stress is a completely normal experience, and we all deal with it at different times in our lives, it’s also important to note that not all stress is created equal. Yep, there are two different types of stress: Eustress (good) and Distress (bad). Today I want to talk about banishing distress as much as possible.

You see, experiencing regular distress can drastically decrease your energy levels, which makes it incredibly challenging to stay focused.  By finding ways to reduce the stress in your life, you will not only feel better emotionally, but you’ll also experience a boost in energy levels.

One of my favorite stress-busting activities is exercise. When we engage in physical activity, our body releases happiness boosting endorphins and pushes away the energy-sucking stress. My other favorite stress-busting strategy is to simply make a to-do list before bed of the upcoming tasks I need to complete. This helps me clear my mind of unnecessary worries because I can reassure myself that I’ve already written the task down, and I will not forget about it.

5) Practice Self-Care and Downtime

It’s no secret that I’m a huge advocate of self-care. Why? Because I firmly believe that it’s the key to a healthy and balanced life.

As women, we put ourselves on the backburner far too often while we tend to other people’s needs.

If we want to keep our energy levels high, however, and live each day to its fullest, we need to find time to recharge. And self-care is how to do that.

So take time every day (yes, every day) to practice self-care. Allow yourself time to rest so you can continue performing at your peak.

  1. I haven’t been giving myself down time or sleep lately and I feel completely worn down. I need to give myself a break.

  2. These are such amazing tips! I am actually about to head out to exercise. I have noticed it makes me feel so much better.

    1. I hope you give them a try, I think they’ll help bring back a little energy to your step 🙂

    This is fantastic! I can always use tips on boosting my energy! Thanks for the helpful ideas. 🙂

  4. This is exactly what I needed! I am having troubles with my energy lately; I feel so tired every day, but I’m not doing much. I prefer to be a lot busier (but still enjoy what I’m doing), than doing nothing at all. It’s tiring. And, yes! I’m a caffeine addict too. I am trying to workout every now and then to keep my energy level high, and I just recently started meditation.

    1. I hope these tips help, Karen! I’m trying to get into meditation, too. I’m having a hard time sticking with it, but I feel so much better when I remember 🙂

  5. Ugh I definitely find myself running on empty and reaching for an extra cup of coffee (or worse…chocolate!). I need to get back into working out regularly to build up my stamina!

    1. It’s so easy to fall back on those crutches, isn’t it? You’re definitely not alone! And yes! Working out is SUCH a great way to boost that stamina 🙂

  6. Great tips! My biggest fault is sleep. Sleep is not a thing anymore since the little one came along. I go to bed late and wake up early. I really need to work on this. 😴

    1. Thanks, Erin! It’s definitely my biggest challenge, too. (And I don’t even have a little one to blame!) I’ve been setting a “bedtime alarm,” which has helped quite a bit 🙂

  7. What a great blog post, I usually always have at least 7 hours of sleep and I workout every morning as well! I always start my days the same and I enjoy waking up early! I try to avoid coffee most days but some days you just need it.

    1. I hear you. All of a sudden it’s 11:00 p.m. and I have no idea where the night went! 😂

  8. Great post! I always need more energy in life, I’m definitely going to be looking in to all these recommendations now
    🙂

  9. I’ve attended an essential oil course recently and found out that we all should go to bed by 10.30, did you know that?
    Shared your useful post on twitter x

    1. That is SO interesting! I did not know that. The class sounds awesome, by the way. And thank you for the share <3

  10. Downtime is so key! I sleep much better if I have even 3- minutes before bed where there are no screens or noise. When I go to bed directly after being on my phone or watching a show I sleep worse.

    I definitely need all the energy I can get with my four busy kiddos. 🙂 I need to work on the sleep thing. 🙂

    1. Wow! I bet they keep you very busy 🙂 I hope you can squeeze a few extra minutes of sleep in every once in a while 😴
