5 Natural Ways to Gain Energy Throughout Your Day

Updated on February 22, 2018

1. Start Your Morning Off With Some Lemon Water

Easy peasy lemon squeezy. It's as simple as that! Drink one to two glasses of fresh lemon water in the morning (hot or cold) while you get ready for your day and notice the instant change in mood and energy for the rest of your morning.

Lemon water helps nourish brain cells due to the potassium content, making you feel refreshed and ready to go. In addition to the natural energizer qualities, lemons are excellent for detoxing and flushing out toxins. So you end up feeling not only a boost of energy but light and free of inflammation.

2. Consider Taking Vitamin B12 Supplements

No caffeine, yet all its benefits. Also known as the "energy vitamin". Watch this vitamin skyrocket your energy levels. This vitamin helps your body convert the food you consume into glucose, which gives you energy.

If you aren't the type of person to remember to take a supplement everyday, Vitamin B12 is naturally in foods such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products.

3. Peppermint Essential Oils

This stuff works wonders. Trust me.

But lets focus on how you can use peppermint essential oil for improving your energy and mental clarity. Crazy enough, smelling peppermint has been found to stimulate the trigeminal nerve, which is the part of the brain responsible for arousal, which can make you more alert, full of energy, and more focused.

You can simply put the peppermint oil on your skin directly, either on your wrists or back of the neck. If you have sensitive skin try putting the oil in an unscented body lotion. Or you can simply inhale the oil directly when you are at your lowest energy point in the day.

Peppermint essential oil is only one of the many essential oils that are available that assist in more ways than one for the body and mind. I personally use peppermint oil daily and swear by it. I used to be a regular coffee drinker - one cup a day, milk and sugar. Long term effects would of caused me a lot of issues down the line, so I am so thankful I stopped and opted for the all natural way.

4. Small Amounts of Daily Exercise

Yes I know it's hard to incorporate daily exercise in your routine. But sometimes you have to bite the bullet to see results. Now I'm not saying you need an hour a day of pure running, as little as 15 minutes on the bike, treadmill, jumping jacks, squats using resist bands can really improve your energy!

Working out sends oxygen and nutrients to your body's cells, which aids your lungs and heart to work more efficiently, in turn improving your energy levels.It only takes about a week to get into a routine, so just push through that first week of dreading the exercise and the rest will come easier to you.

Here is a link below to a simple, easy at home workout that doesn't require any weights to not only help boost your energy but also help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

5. The Chia Seed Superfood

High in omega 3 fatty acids and fiber, this super food will not only help skyrocket your energy levels, but its also a healthy addition to any anti-aging diet. These little guys can help you run all day long, with no afternoon crash due to its blood sugar stabilities! In addition to these bonuses, chia seeds are excellent for your digestive health and heart.

How to Prepare Chia Seeds?

You have options! You can opt to eat them raw or soak them first. By soaking them, the water or milk enables them to release enzyme inhibitors, this makes it easier for you to digest, as well as helps you access the close packed nutrients inside the seeds. However, you can eat chia seeds as is, because they will naturally absorb the water that is in your system already. Include chia seeds in smoothies, or make chia pudding for a wonderful mid day snack or breakfast topped off with some delicious fruit.

Who doesn't love an all natural energy booster with anti-aging and slimming effects?!
