We all have those days when we feel lethargic and don’t have much energy to spend, but then there are days where you just feel tired everyday for no reason, here are some habits you need to change to get back to your previous energetic self!
1. A bad sleep routine
I will beat this horse until my arm falls off. SLEEP IS CRITICAL TO LIVING A GOOD LIFE.
Never sacrifice your sleep, even for “the grind”. Sorry productivity bros.
No caffeine after noon
No phone after nine.
2. Scrolling in the morning
This is an incredible way to kill the momentum of your day.
Flooding your brain with cortisol and unearned dopamine in the morning can leave you feeling sluggish for the rest of the day.
Keep your phone off for an hour after you wake.
3. Holding anger
“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” – Buddha
Well I can’t say it much better than Buddha.
Anger will wear you out physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Forgive and forget. Not for them, but for you.
4. Eating over-processed food
Regardless of whether your diet is paleo, keto, or Oreos — this applies.
Anything highly-processed, will take a lot of energy for your body to digest.
Skip the take-out if you want to feel energized.
Eat more single ingredient foods.
5. Not moving your ass
Energy is like kindness. The more you give, the more you get.
Gentle stress put on our heart and lungs is a GOOD thing.
Go for a walk. That’s it.
The benefits of daily walks could be its own post entirely.
6. Lack of sunlight
Lack of sun can lead to a dip in your serotonin.
Low serotonin is linked to depression and reduced energy levels.
If you can’t get in the sun, you can eat Vitamin-D rich foods or take a supplement.
Get some sun on your face each morning.
