Need Energy?

Usually, when people talk about energy, they’re complaining that they have a lack of it.  Over 50% of the American population reports not having enough energy, according to a survey by Good Morning America.  So I figured I’d try to find some good tips for people that can help them get more energy, and by looking at what can help you gain energy, you get a better idea of what energy actually is.

So, straight from the Buddhists, here are the first 30 of a series of 55 tips to get more energy:

1. Change your socks for refreshment.

2. Rock out loud.

3. Get rid of the stuffy nose.

4. Work with your body’s clock.

5. Have a piece of chocolate.

6. Have an afternoon power snack.

7. Hit up the water cooler for inconsequential banter.

8. Eat lots of berries.

9. Wear brighter colors.

10. Take a power nap.

11. Flirt.

12. Aromatherapy with lavender.

13. Wake up at the same time everyday.

14. Drink lots of water.

15. Use caffeine wisely.

16. Avoid energy drinks.

17. Eat low glycemic (low or complex carb) foods.

18. Eat more soluble fiber.

19. Get your Vitamin C.

20. Sniff some citrus.

21. Cover the B Vitamins.

22. Quit smoking.

23. Play to relax.

24. Eat smaller, more frequent meals.

25. Enjoy a cup of tea.

26. Splash some water on your face.

27. Stand up, stretch and take a couple of deep breaths.

28. Get your world organized.

29. Look on the bright side.

30. Take a mini-vacation.


Some of them don’t even seem like they’d help improve energy levels, but they show that energy is directly related to happiness.


Now to the scientific part of energy…I won’t even begin to explain it, I’ll  just let Bill Nye do what he does best.


Energy’s everywhere. No if, ands, or buts about it.
