Can you imagine what you could do with a little more energy? Perhaps you could get a little more work done, spend some more time playing with your kids, power your way through a workout at the gym, or perhaps just do something fun. Sounds appealing, doesn’t it? Well, the sad fact is that although many of us may have the best intentions, we simply run out of gas.
A lack of energy can have many causes. The U.S. National Institutes of Health tell us that these can include anemia, depression, sleep disorders, bad nutrition habits, diabetes, or a sedentary lifestyle. Certain medications may also cause a lack of energy, including antihistamines for allergies, blood pressure medicines, sleeping pills, prednisone, and diuretics.
Low energy can affect you in some important ways that you may not have considered. It can rob you of focus, and that can often lead to mental lapses and bad decision-making. Your work may suffer, too, as low energy steals the momentum you need to meet deadlines, arrive on time for meetings, and reach project milestones. The most successful people in business are those who can recognize an opportunity and have the ability to quickly seize it. With insufficient energy, the parade could pass you by, and you might not even know it!
Here are some great lifestyle tips that can help you to fill up your energy tank and improve your productivity:
|•||Get more exercise. If you’re feeling tired, you might be surprised to learn that a walk may be better than a nap for boosting your energy levels. Any kind of physical activity will help to burn fat and increase your metabolism, and exercise will also improve your mood, helping you to feel more energized. In an important recent University of Georgia study, researchers found that sedentary people can increase their energy levels by 20 percent and reduce fatigue by an amazing 65 percent just by doing regular low-impact exercise. In another study, the same researchers found that the energy benefit from exercise was even greater than the improvement from using prescription stimulant drugs!|
|•||Take control of your health issues. Be sure to see your doctor if you have high blood pressure, thyroid problems, diabetes, or other energy-depleting medical conditions.|
|•||Sleep under comfortable conditions. Good quality sleep is essential for maintaining your energy reserves. Make sure that your bedroom is quiet, dark, and at a cool temperature that will promote healthful, deep sleep. Also, it may be time to replace that creaky mattress and lumpy pillow. Your energy levels will thank you!|
