Boost Your Energy Level

Boost Your Energy Level

“Energy flows where attention goes.” — James Redfield

Today technology pushes us forward faster than we can keep up. The world and domestic discord is zapping our optimism and energy. It’s challenging to keep life balance with old and new, with family and friends, with religion and politics, recreation and work, and with health and wealth. Maintaining a healthy energy level is essential to reaching our goals in our personal and business lives.

Over the past year I shifted my focus from being continually in work mode to taking time to “sharpen the axe” and recharge my batteries. I assessed my lifestyle and decided to make changes to key elements. Below is a list of the things that helped me become more balanced and energized that may help you.

Improve Your Eating Habits. Easier said than done! Make a plan and stick to it. I began by committing to eat raw food for just 21 days. I figured if I could eat 95% raw and only cheat 5% then I’d be ahead of the game. It took adjusting every meal, but after 21 days I was hooked on eating raw whenever possible. My energy soared to youthful levels!

Exercise. Go back to training and workout with a goal. In the past, I trained a few times a week. I wasn’t getting anywhere until I read an interesting article about setting goals and time limits. I love cycling so I set my goals to improve my race times. Each week I improved and gained more stamina to go longer.

Get Quality Sleep. As we get older, we require less sleep. Many of us do not get the sleep we need, which is vital for healthy energy levels. Create a calming nightly routine and “let go” of everything in your mind before bed. This has made a huge difference in my stress levels and the quality of my sleep. The better your sleep, the better your energy level will be the next day.

Practice Gratitude. Be thankful. See each day as a gift. No matter what challenges happen, deal with them, and learn from the experience. An attitude of gratitude alleviates a lot of unnecessary strife.

Find Time for Yourself. It is important to keep yourself strong and healthy. Do not become a martyr to your work or your family. Find the time to let go, unwind, and do something you are passionate about. Find something that excites and energizes you. In the long run you will be in better shape for your family, friends, and co-workers. Whatever your plans are this spring and summer, make them experiences to remember.

This month we celebrate mothers. They gave us life and it’s up to us to find the energy to live it to the fullest. Happy Mother’s Day!
