Natural Ways to Get More Energy

Energy is neither created nor destroyed but is something that you may be always trying to get more of. If you have been feeling the groggy and lazy effects of not having enough energy, you are not alone. It is something busy adults struggle with a lot and there are several reasons for it. You walk through the aisles of the grocery or convenience store and see flashy advertisements for energy drinks, coffee shots, and miracle pills, but these instant energy boosters often contain chemicals you do not want to put in your body. If you are looking for an energy boost, there are several natural ways to accomplish this mission.

Drink More Water

H20 is the natural juice of life for humans, plants, and animals. You need it to survive, and chances are you do not drink enough of it each day. Water is packed with natural minerals that will do good things for your body. It cleanses toxins out of your body and will make your skin look and feel younger, longer. Instead of reaching for the nearest cup of coffee when you wake up in the morning, drink a cold glass of water and enjoy almost-instant energy.

Avoid Sitting

Couch potato syndrome is one of the biggest reasons for the lack of energy most people feel. It is easy to get wrapped up in binge watching your favorite TV show and keeping your body idle. Lack of movement will prohibit hormonal and chemical reactions from occurring within your body that cause you to have more energy. Instead of sitting around the house all day, get up and get active.

Sunlight

If you are looking for a good source of energy, simply go outside and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Your body needs Vitamin D for energy and the sunshine will provide you with more of it. You can go out and play with the kids, take a walk, and appreciate nature. You will absorb energy and get some much-needed exercise in the process.

Watch What You Eat

We live in a fast and quick serve society, and it is easy for you to forget to make your calories count. Remembering to eat plenty servings of natural foods like fruits and vegetables is important to overall health and getting the energy you need to get things done during the day. Processed food slows you down and drains energy because of the extra effort your body needs to put into digesting these foods. Don’t waste precious energy eating foods that do nothing for you.

Get Plenty of Rest

Your body needs plenty of rest in order to heal and rejuvenate itself. It is easy to get wrapped up in a six hours of sleep at night routine, especially when you are busy. Instead of burning the midnight oil and trying to push yourself to the brink of exhaustion, organize your tasks so that you can be more efficient during the day and get more sleep at night. Medical professionals recommend that adults get at least eight hours of sleep per night. When you get adequate rest, you will wake up feeling energized and ready to take on whatever comes your way during the day.

Routine Check-Ups

Illnesses and diseases will drain you of energy quickly as your body has to work overtime trying to fight off whatever is ailing you. It is important to go to the doctor for regular check-ups so that doctors can diagnose and tackle potential medical issues. You will feel much better and have a lot more energy once you are healthy.

If you are struggling to find the energy to go about your day, examine these simple solutions and take back your life. Life is busy and there are many things that compete for your time each day. Figure out why you feel drained and take the steps to get your energy back so you can start enjoying life more.

  • Curious if there are any studies on stem cell therapy helping with wet macular degeneration. Any help for afib or Sjogrens disease? Thank you.

  • Hi Carolyn – there are definitely studies out there using different types of stem cell therapy for macular degeneration. This article gives a good overview of what’s out there right now and also emphasizes the need to investigate a “stem cell” treatment before going forward with it. There are legitimate treatments out there, but there are also irresponsible people performing procedures they don’t understand. So you want to make sure you know what you’re dealing with before moving forward with anything like this. I’m unaware of any current treatments that can be performed in a single visit, so you should be wary of anything that sounds like that. This study (mentioned in the article above) shows what I believe will become a standard treatment in the next 5-10 years.

    As for afib and Sjogrens, I’m not aware of anything promising at this time, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be in the near future. Afib may take a bit longer than Sjogrens since its pathology isn’t addressed as directly by technologies in use at this moment. Since Sjogrens is an autoimmune disease, there is reason to believe that mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow (not fat since the FDA has an issue with that) could be a useful treatment. We’ll put all of these topics on our future blog list, so keep checking back for more news!
