5 Sure-Fire Ways to Increase Your Energy


There  were very specific times in my life when I would hit a wall at 3:00  and  my energy was drained. There were also some very specific things  happening  at this time in my life that I can see very clearly were the  causes of my  energy walls.

There are some very easy tweaks you can make in your day so that you  don’t  hit the wall at some point. You CAN feel vibrant and full of  energy each and  everyday. And the best part – and I know this might be a  shock to you all – the  way in which we increase energy is not what you  may think.

Learn 5 Ways to Increase Your Energy

Operate with Passion: The biggest reason I was hitting a  wall at  3:00 is because I was no longer passionate for what I was doing with my  work. I knew I wanted to step up and I was afraid to take that step. So   everyday I was going through the motions wishing it was different. Your  body  can sense this feeling of lack of enthusiasm. It’s basically  choosing sleep  over life. If you aren’t living a vibrant life… might  as well go to sleep! What  do you need the energy for?

Find Your Purpose: We were all put here on the planet for a  reason.  We all have a purpose and a mission from spirit. If you are not living   your purpose or don’t know what it is, your energy will diminish until  you  connect to it. Once again, why do you need to last all day if you  aren’t even  living out your purpose for coming into this life? Your body  is asking you to  change and as soon as you begin operating from this  space you will be surged  with energy and you won’t want to stop.  Therefore, you will be supported in  that energetically.

Create Your Own Beliefs: One of the most draining things is  living  out of someone else’s belief systems. You are unique, and you have a   unique path in your life. It doesn’t matter if your mother believes what  you  are doing is impossible or your sibling believes it’s stupid. You  must operate  from your own empowering beliefs that bring you closer to  where you want to go.  Napoleon Hill said that the only beliefs or  thoughts you should keep are the  ones that align with your desires – all  the other ones have got to go!

Enjoy the Dining Experience: Take a time out for meals and  be  present with your meal times. Enjoy the food, taste the herbs and  spices,  sit down, and breathe with your food. This is a nourishing  experience; you are  taking care of yourself when you put food into your  body, so give yourself time  in these moments.

Check In and Get Quiet: Throughout the day ask yourself how  you are  feeling or what you want to do. Sometimes when I check in I notice that  I  might need a nap, or maybe I am thirsty. Perhaps my body is asking for a   break or a walk. If you never slow down and get quiet you will miss the  signals  from your body and therefore your body has no choice but to go  to an extreme  wall to get you to stop. Always check in the way you would  with a newborn baby – you are worth it!
