Do you feel low on energy, and wonder how to stop feeling tired all the time? No, you’re not imagining it, nobody seems to have the energy to do, well… anything these days. We’re tired. We’re stressed. And we seem to just need an easy button to get through the day.
We are living through the biggest global pandemic in recent history and it has never been more important to take care of our health and wellness. But the high level of fatigue we’re feeling is heavy. Really heavy!
Fatigue can stop us in our tracks, bog us down and keep us stagnant. One of our favorite sayings here at Perspire is: Emotion needs Motion. We got to move heavy emotions out of our bodies so we can live, rollerblade or surf our way out of fatigue. But where’s our energy to do that?
Here are 5 ways to refill your tank so you have the gas (the juice, the energy!) to make things happen again.
NAMASTE AT HOME
If you can’t get out of the house, consider trying yoga in the comfort of your home. One of our favorite Youtube yoga channels is: Yoga With Adriene. There you can find an array of yoga practices from beginner to advanced.
How does this help increase my energy?
Some yoga poses are excellent to reduce fatigue and adjust the hormone cortisol – too little of which can zap your energy. As your stress levels go down, energy levels improve. You’ll be doing backbends and handstands in no time!
PHONE A FRIEND
We have so many “friends” on the internet but why does it sometimes feel like we’re so disconnected from each other? Make time to socialize with friends and family in person. If you can’t see your bestie, pick up the phone and call them or even better Facetime!
How does this help?
Have you ever hung up the phone after talking to your favorite person and felt giddy and insanely euphoric? Like, it was the best day ever because you laughed, cried — connected with someone you care about? That boost in happy hormones increases not only your mood but your energy levels too.
ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
What are you grateful for? Don’t just think it, write it down. When you give the thoughts of gratitude life, by putting them on paper, you will gradually feel happy, more “filled” with each line of gratitude written.
How does this help my energy levels?
Regularly experiencing positive emotions such joy and gratitude creates an upward motion, helping you to refuel your energy. Gotta love that!
