Achieving Goals Takes Energy – Top Natural Energy Boosters To Try
Fatigue and lack of energy are at the top of the heap when it comes to the excuses people use for their failure to realize goals.
Here are some ways to boost your energy while you are on the path to higher achievement. Try some of these and see which ones work best for you.
Play some Energetic music. Different types of music have different effects on us, but you can learn which are best for you by trial and error. Once you find the music that wakes you up, keep it ready. Keep a tape in your car, and a CD in the player at home.
Sleep better. The research seems to show that as long as you get at least five hours of sleep, the quality is more important than the quantity. Try drinking something warm before bed, or relax with a simple meditation.
Talk about something interesting. Have you ever seen a tired person start to talk about something they’re passionate about, and suddenly “wake up.” It’s a powerful technique you can use for yourself. Have a few “favorite” subjects that get you going.
Deep breathing. Several slow deep breaths help oxygenate the blood supply better, and especially seems to wake up the brain.
Have an “energy drink. The verdict isn’t in on most of them, but it’s a cheap option to try. I seem to get something from the ones with Ginkgo Biloba in them.
Move your body. Sometimes just getting up and washing the dishes, or walking around the house helps boost energy levels.
Exercise. It’s not a quick solution, but many people notice an increase in their energy level when they get regular aerobic exercise.
Hot and cold shower. Try a minute of hot water, then a minute of cold, alternating for six minutes. This isn’t for those with weak hearts, but it will wake you up. Incidentally, research shows that this also revs up the immune system.
Get outside. Often, a little sunshine and fresh air can be very energizing.
These are just some of the things that can boost your energy supply for goal achievement when you need it. Write down the techniques that work for you when you try them and remind yourself to use them.
“I’m tired” is just not an option . . . find ways to energize yourself and go for your goals with gusto. Enjoy the extra “power” you will feel!
