In case you missed it, here are my 7 tips to having more energy this spring!!! Had a blast on Good Day Dallas!!! Click the image below to watch or click here.
To recap, here are my tips below:
1. Get rid of clothes that don’t fit with who you are anymore.
This isn’t just about cleaning gout your closet, this is also good for your self-esteem. Swearing to yourself that you will one day wear those skinny jeans is only taking up physical and mental space and inevitably make you feel bad about yourself. Giving away old clothes that are too small is a great way to declare that you love and accept yourself as you are right now.
1b. Bless and release old grudges and resentments.
Think about how someone who may have brought pain into your life has taught you a valuable lesson. Thank them, send them love and gratitude, and release them from your life. This will help cut the negative cord that has been holding you onto them. As far as intimate and professional relationships, start identifying what you need to be happy in relationships.
2. Say “NO” more to obligations.
Instead of saying YES immediately, give yourself the time to think about it. The only person putting pressure on you is yourself. You get to decide how much of your time and energy you want to give. Allow yourself the 24-hour rule. Give yourself 24 hours to commit to anything.
3. Get to bed earlier and wake up earlier
The later you sleep the more tired you will will waking up in the morning. Create a night time ritual where you soothe yourself and allow yourself to sleep peacefully. Set your alarm to wake up to peaceful music. Most Americans are exhausted and tired in the morning and then try to wake themselves up by pumping themselves with caffeine. Instead, sleep enough so you don’t have t overcompensate by drinking highly caffeinated drinks.
4. Move your body
Start slowly. If you haven’t been to the gym or exercised in a while, start off by taking a 15-minute walk, seven days a week. The key is consistency. Keep your workout clothes by your bed or stop at your local park for a walk. Also when going to a store park as far away as you can so you are forced to walk those few extra steps. Anything helps.
5. Have an afternoon power snack
Low energy levels can also be a result of dehydration and our blood sugar levels dropping. Keep energizing snacks on hand like a power bar, berries, hummus and crackers, something healthy that you can munch on to boost your sugar levels to its balanced state.
