Top 5 Ways to Boost Your Energy Levels Naturally

 Why do so many people feel like they need more energy? We live in a time when being busy is like a badge of honour.

Many of my one-to-one clients come to me because they are overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. They can no longer see how they can get everything done and have no mental energy or physical vitality to make the effort to make the changes required. 

Fortunately, with my guidance, they can learn new ways of operating that not only nourish and nurture them but lead to new sustainable energy that will support them in the future. Clearly, in a coaching environment, we can take time to address any underlying issues.

Read on for my 5 top tips for greater energy now.

Get Sufficient Sleep:

One of the most important factors in maintaining high energy levels is getting enough quality sleep. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night to allow your body to rest and recharge. 

I would go a step further to say have a regular time that you go to bed and always get up at the same time. 

Develop a nighttime ritual that prepares you for sleep. Reading a book, diffusing some calming essential oils in the room, calming herbal tea. Listen to a sleep meditation app. All these activities can help calm your system for a better night's sleep.

Regular Exercise:

Engaging in regular physical activity can boost your energy levels by improving circulation, increasing oxygen supply to your cells, and releasing endorphins. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. See If you can find time to walk in nature each day.

Many of us spend hours sitting in front of screens or scrolling through our phones. Time away from these activities will boost your energy levels too. If you can’t manage 30 minutes in one go, try moving around to uplifting music in short spurts and see how your energy changes.

Balanced Diet:

A nutritious diet plays a crucial role in maintaining energy levels. Include a variety of whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats, to provide your body with the necessary nutrients and avoid energy crashes caused by sugar and processed foods. Keep engaging with She’s Got Guts® for ideas and support on how to eat better for your energy and your gut. When your gut is in balance you will have more energy.

Stay Hydrated:

Dehydration can lead to fatigue and low energy levels. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day to stay properly hydrated. The exact amount varies depending on factors like climate and activity level, but a general guideline is to aim for around 8 cups (64 ounces) of water per day.

Manage Stress:

Chronic stress can deplete your energy levels. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as practising relaxation techniques (e.g., deep breathing, meditation, yoga), engaging in hobbies, spending time with loved ones, or seeking support from a therapist.
