Wonder how to boost your energy? Here are 9 ways to boost your energy

Lately I have been feeling very tired, and even though in the winter time I tend to be tired I kind of didn’t like it, because I really love the feeling of getting things done and I couldn’t. So I set myself to mission to try to bring back my energy. I am lucky enough that I get my energy pretty fast, but I still wanted to learn how to boost my energy and get back my motivation. It is the best feeling ever when you are motivated. So then I started researching and tried many methods and will be sharing these methods with you guys. I will tell you how well they worked and if I recommend them or not. So let’s get started:

Comment down below if you have any suggestion on how to boost your energy

Get more sleep:

This is something not everyone thinks about when it comes to boosting their energy, but it no brainer. Sleeping is what gives you energy, so if you don’t have enough energy you might rethink you sleeping schedule. Maybe have trouble sleeping or maybe you need extra hour of sleeping, or maybe you just need more sleep to boost your energy. So I tried this by giving myself one extra hour of sleep and it really did help out a lot. Before I would be waking up lime zombie and now I am very much rested. After a week I went back to my usual sleeping schedule so you don’t have to do it forever, just to boost your energy. I 100% recommend this

Reduce stress:

You might be surprise how much energy stress can take from you. By having stress it is very usual that you lose a lot of energy. So try to reduce stress, and I know it is not easy, you can’t control stress. Maybe think about what is causing a stress in your life. Is it a friend? Maybe distance yourself from them for a bit. Is it work? Try not to worry too much about it and say to yourself everything will be fine. I tried this method by always counting to 10 when I felt I was annoyed or stressed about something. I also kept saying to myself everything will be fine and it was really fine. I try to stay calm in bad situation and it really worked well. This method can be good for you even in long run so I really recommend it!

Move more:

Doctors really know what they are doing when they say working out is good for your health. By working out you can really boost your energy. You are burning away all the negative energies and replacing them with positive energies. By working out you are taking care of your body, therefore you are taking care of your body. You keep your body going and because of that you will boost your energy. This method is great, but it is not something I needed to add to my daily routine, because I already workout 5 times a week. But from working out so much I can highly recommend you try it.

Avoid smoking:

Smoking might be fun for you, but it is not fun for you body. In a way by smoking you are killing your body. You are putting negative energy into your body. So smoking can take away your energy and you would be more tired. By not smoking, you keep your body clean and give your body more energy. By how I talked about smoking you can assume I am not a smoker, not really something to add to my routine. But from someone who has never smoked, I highly recommend it!

Limit Alcohol:

Alcohol is all fun, but it can be very bad for your health. There are a reason why doctors don’t support alcohol, it can damage your health a lot. It is fine when you have glass of wine once in a while, but drinking every day couple of bottles can’t be good. And alcohol is draining our energy and that is why we feel so tired when we drink a lot of alcohol. When drinking alcohol becomes a habit that can cause you to be tired. So trying to drink less alcohol or not at all for a while until you get energy back, can really help you out.

Also when you don’t drink alcohol you immune system gets stronger, which can boost your energy too. I am someone who likes to drink alcohol, but under the control of course. But since I was feeling tired, I cut it off completely and it was amazing for me. I didn’t drink alcohol for three weeks and I it really helped me. I also noticed my immune system got so strong and that is another plus. So just try it don’t need to cut it off forever for just until your energy is back to normal.

Take a look at your eating habits:

What you put into your body is very important. That is why doctors suggest we limit sugar because it is not good for our body, it is not even about us getting fat, but it is simply for our health. What you eat can impact your energy. So take a look what you have been eating. Have you been eating a lot of sugar? Maybe slow down with sugar! Have you been eating a lot of take away and fast food? Also maybe try slowing down with it.

Maybe try new healthy recipes instead. Trying eating a lot of fruits and try making your own food. This way you know what you are taking. I have been eating health for view years now. I try eating a lot of healthy salads, fruits and have cut down the sugar and it has been so good to me. Probably because of that I am able to bring back my energy. Your body will feel amazing about healthy food and so will you!

Avoid added sugar:

Coca-cola and chocolate can boost your energy for thatmoment when you feel tired, but for long term it will do more harm than good. I mean once in a while you can take added sugar it is all about balance. If you eat only healthy food it won’t be good either, you got to find balance between healthy and unhealthy. How about to do view exercises to boost your energy instead of taking added sugar, or water can help you too. Since cutting down added sugar my energy has been better

Stay hydrated:

Water is so important to drink and you should be drinking a lot of it. I know I am guilty too I always forget to drink water and by drinking a lot of water you can boost your energy. For one week I drank two bottles in the morning and two bottles in the evening and it made me have more energy. So I highly recommend you do it and make it an habit!

Be social:

This one might seem odd, but it is so important to have connection with other people. Having other people around can motivate you, sometimes we lack energy simply because we don’t have people around you. When you have someone around who is full of energy and positive, they will give you that and the same goes to people who lack energy and are negative. It is important to have positive people around. I am telling you talking to someone when you have bad day, can make your day better. Sometimes we lack energy simply because we are going through some stuff. So try to keep positive people around and try to avoid negative people.

These are very easy and quick and you can easily implant them in your daily routine. I get it sometimes it can be hard to motivate yourself to do it, but trust me you feel so much better after doing them. By simply trying some of these methods your energy will be back in no time.

I made quiz for you guys to test yourself and see how tired you are so you know if you need to use more methods or just maybe one:

9 Unspoken rules about finding workout for you

9 Unspoken rules about finding workout for you

Starting to workout

from stretch is never easy. You and our body are getting used to it and it can sometimes be hard to push yourself. So many are quick to give up too soon before they even see any results. But sometimes it is not even you, it is the workout that you are doing that made you give up. So many times we tend to start doing certain workout because the company advertised it as being easy and that you will see quick results, which can’t be true. That workout might be easy for some people, but hard for others. Also if someone said to you, you will see results quickly they are laying to you.

Your body needs time to

adjust itself to this lifestyle so it will never be quick. It will take at least 3 months for you to see the results. So we chose the workout that was advertised to us instead of trying out many workouts and see what you enjoy the most.  Because when you do workouts that you really enjoy, you won’t give up. It won’t matter to you if you see results or not. Just think about it, anything you do that you enjoy, do you really care how quickly you see results? I am sure your answer is no, because enjoying what you are doing is enough. So now you are wondering but how do I find workout for me? Well I got you, I made list of unspoken rules that will help you in a way to find workout for you:

Don’t look for workout for quick weight loss:

Your goal for working out should never be to loss weight. First if you have mindset like this one, you will never see results. Being too focused on something can never be good. Also this goal is coming from place of having negative thoughts about your body and that will never help you with seeing results. If you feel negative about your body, you need to work on overcoming the negativity before you start working out.

Remember your body

has been there for you from day one and has been there with you for bad and good things and never left you. Appreciate it and also know that your body is designed just perfectly for you. When you are happy with how you look, you will more likely lose weight. Instead of looking for workout for quick weight loss, look for workout that will get you in shape and make you stronger. Seeking for workout that will always get you excited. Working out is more than just losing weight, it can do even more for you!

Experiment:

You can’t know what workout is for you, if you never tried anything. Before I found my workout I tried so many so just wasn’t having any fun. But trying out different workouts will give you idea what you don’t like, so this will help you with finding your workout. Be aware how you are feeling during that workout. Are you counting minutes when the workout will be over? When it is yes, well that workout for sure is not for you. Of course give that workout a week before quitting, but don’t be afraid of quitting because if you are not enjoying the workout it is not worth it.

Write down your strengths and weaknesses:

When you used to sports when you are younger or at the gym class what was something you were good at. For example were you very strong or more flexible? And also look at it right now what do you feel are your strenghts and weaknesses? Knowing that can also help you find your workout. Because you are more likely to enjoy doing something that you are good at and that comes easy to you instead of something you are not good at.

Be in the environment: 

What I mean by this, is go to the gym and feel that energy, go to the park where people workout. If you have group of friends who workout, ask them to workout together. See what they are doing and ask them why they like these workouts. Hearing from other people can also help you out. And being in this environment can also open your eyes to what workout you are going to enjoy. I would even take view classes and this way you can experiment and but also feel this energy.

Become closer to your body:

As I said before you even think about working out, you need to accept your body. You need to accept that you body is beautiful no matter what. You should never start working out in hopes to love your body, that should come before working out. You need to take time to learn to accept and love your body the way it is. And also you should also get to know your body, learn how to listen to your body and its needs. Because our bodies are constantly telling us things, but not everyone can hear their body. It is important to listen to your body, to know when your body had enough. When you are able to listen to your body, you can also easily find the workout for you because your body will be obvious if that workout is for you or not.

Learn from experts:

Go online, search on google, search blogs and on social media for fitness experts. People who are well known in this industry. Of course so many assume they are experts when they clearly are not, but I feel you will know if they are experts or not. By what they are saying and also by what others are saying about them. Listen to what they have to say. See what they have to say is great workout for example for introverts or extroverts. Or maybe great workouts for someone who wants to build muscles or wants to get into shape. This for sure will bring you closer to finding your workout.

Write down your goals:

By knowing your goals you will know where to look for your workout. You really need to set your goals straight otherwise you will be all over the place. Is your goal to get fit then you would look for this type of workouts, you will go and search for trainers that offer these kind of workouts.

Do research before:

There are so many people offering workouts and giving you empty promises, please don’t follow for it. Do research and find the experts for these kind of workouts and then do research on these experts how well known are they and how successful their programs are. Because anyone can say their program is successful, but that doesn’t mean it is true.

Take a quiz:

And finally the last step would be to take this quick and easy quiz that I made for you guys, that will somehow give you idea what workout is for you and will bring you closer to finding your workout.

Finding your workout will be a process, it will take time but it is well worth it. Always getting excited before every workout is just such an amazing feeling. Never missing another workout because you enjoy it so much, therefore you will see results quicker. The workouts won’t feel like workouts anymore, it will feel like hobby you really enjoy doing. And after workout you will feel good for being productive and will have so much energy. Hopefully this will help you find your workout so you can get started.

Lot of love and hugs

Do these 5 things and this is how you will stay motivated

How to stay motivated

hello all dear readers today’s article is a follow up on our fitness strategy  ill be giving you a few tips on how to stay motivated through out your life so lets get it started  :

In everyone’s fitness journey and in general in life, you will have some phases where you find yourself unmotivated. Right now I sometimes don’t feel like working out because it is so cold and in a way depressing. It seems like it always dark outside and this doesn’t motivate me at all. But I also know that after working out I will feel much better, so I always try to push myself. For example on first of January as everyone knows it is mostly a lazy day, and I really couldn’t bring myself to workout. I was so tired and I just felt like sleeping, but I knew once I started working out this would change. And it really did, after that workout I felt so much better and had much more energy. But it is not so easy to motivate yourself, so here are so tips how to stay motivated:

1- You didn’t gain/lose weight in a few weeks to lose it in a few weeks :

Lets get a reality check weight lose/gain won’t happen over night. So when you start your fitness or wight lose plan, you can’t give up in a few weeks. Because your body will take a while until it fits with the new change ( just keep going). Your body first needs to get used to it, until it can start losing or gaining weight. But because the progress won’t happen over night, your main goal should never be to lose weight, instead make a goal to get strong and fit it is way better. It is great to see results, but don’t focus too much on numbers.

2- Don’t look for fast fix solutions :

You can do a crash diet every now and then but that can’t be the bases of your health plan as all the fast fix results you will get, you will lose just as fast and the consensuses can be brutal. If you do fast diet, you will eventually go back to eating you usual food and then your weight will go back. Instead try to balance the food and get used to eating this forever. Don’t have mindset to just eat it for a while. Have a mindset to eat it forever. So in this case you will find alternatives that you like eating and you will be able to eat little bit unhealthy food. This way you won’t shock your body by changing your eating habits to your usual food and therefore you won’t risk gaining or losing the weight back. The food is not the problem, your habits are so just adjust them!

3- constancy is key :

Your fitness journey should be a long term and not a short term. You need to think about it as if you are going to do it for long time. Knowing you will keep doing it for long time, will motivate you much more. Not having an end date is a key to motivation. But not only that, you need to keep doing it, not saying I can just not do it one day. By being consistent, your motivation will rise and this will become a habit. When something becomes your habit, you in a way automatically do it without thinking too much about it.

4- no good dead goes unpunished :

Working out and staying healthy is really not just for your body. Its is also for your brain and for your mental health as well. You will be more in control of yourself and feelings, and you will be able to run your life better , so its more than worth it don’t you think. Knowing how much benefit you get from working out, will motivate you to workout. Having peace within yourself after workout and being able to control your emotions and your feelings is so amazing. Knowing that when you are unmotivated and having bad day and then working out will turn your day around and you will be much better. This mindset always keeps me going.

5- Love you :

You may not be in a place that you want to be in right this moment , but you will get there eventually. Your hard work will pay off as long as you don’t stop. Everyone is different, and for you to make your goals come true, you must love you and love where you are. From where you are you will learn how to be a better you. Having that unconditional love for yourself, will keep you motivated and will make anything happen. Believing in yourself and just keep going is something so powerful, so just keep that in your mind.

Highlight how far you have come:

I don’t know about you, but seeing how far I have come can really motivate me. Great way to motivate yourself is to make a plan. Make a workout plan with squares and after every workout check one square of the plan and you can visually see how far you come. Knowing you did 100 compare to last year which was only 10 can really give you motivation. Just keep working hard

Now that we talked about workout it is only far that I give you view ideas for workouts. I have many more planned just stay tune!

High knee ups: 20 seconds

Squats: for beginners 30 squats/ 5 rounds, for people in between 10 days of 30 squats and for advanced 15 rounds of 30 squats

 

Burpees: 15 burpees

By following steps, you will keep yourself motivated. You will never be unmotivated again. You will always get excited to workout no matter how you are feeling, but this takes time and I know you will get there. Just keep working hard and believing in yourself. I feel the main key to success any kind of success is to believe in yourself, so please do so. But see with motivation sometimes it is hard to say if you are unmotivated or just having a bad day. So this is why I put together this quiz you can take to test yourself. See how motivated or unmotivated you really are so you know what step to take. Sometimes only one step is needed for you to push yourself to get up and workout. Hopefully this article and this quiz will help you out.
