Listen to “7 Simple Steps to Restoring Your Energy Levels”.
Fatigue and exhaustion prevent us from doing the activities we want because we feel sluggish and slow. Fortunately, recovering lost energy is relatively straightforward; it just requires us to change some of our daily habits and routines.
One of the biggest energy zappers is stress. Stress is caused by anxiety, and anxiety uses up a lot of our energy. Like worry or fear, stress can leave you feeling mentally and physically exhausted, even if you’ve spent the day in bed. However, by utilizing a few simple practices and using the natural energy sources around you, you can reduce fatigue, keep your internal batteries charged, and maintain high energy levels for whatever life brings.
Here are seven simple steps to restoring your energy levels:
1. Put yourself first
Practice saying “no” when you feel that there is too much on your plate, and be sure to set aside time every day to do something you enjoy, even if it is just a few minutes. Meditation is excellent for letting go of daily stressors.
2. Get negative thoughts under control
Have you experienced negative thoughts that regularly cross your mind, leaving you feeling drained and depressed? These are the thoughts you need to be wary of, as they can cause your energy levels to slump.
If you ever find yourself dwelling on negative self-talk, ask yourself: Is this thought serving me in this moment and for the future? If not, try to reframe the negative narrative into something more positive.
3. Fill up on healthier options
To keep your energy levels stable, replace sugar and refined carbs with whole foods rich in fibre, such as vegetables and legumes. Several studies have found that minimizing sugar and processed carbs during meals and snacks typically leads to increased energy levels.
4. Don’t underestimate sleep
It’s vital to make sure that you get enough good-quality sleep at night to prevent fatigue and to recover from the effect of tiring or stressful activities throughout the day.
Getting enough sleep should be a top priority. Many of us often underestimate the impact that shortened sleeping time or disrupted sleep can have on our energy levels and health and well-being in general.
When you’re exhausted after a long day, it can be tempting to sit in front of the TV and veg out. Unfortunately, that usually makes you feel more tired. Instead of sitting down to recharge, try getting up and moving around. Walking or cycling for just 20 minutes can leave you feeling energized and refreshed for hours.

6. Discover the sources of your energy
Look for the things that motivate you and give you energy. If you don’t know what they are, search for them, find them and then do them. They might be creative things like drawing, painting, writing or speaking. They might be physically active things like playing a sport, swimming, dancing or walking. You might even find energy from spending a day in bed. Whatever your sources, go out there and find them.
7. Practice Meditation
There is no better way to restore energy than to relax, breathe and empty your mind of all thoughts. Meditation offers a great way to practice positive affirmation and reflect on what you want for your life.
