Boost energy without Caffeine – 5 Methods

Posted by medliorator on February 16, 2008

Here are five techniques and activities that are not only proven to add a lot of energy to your day, but also add to, rather than take away from your overall health:

1. Breath of fire – [Yoga] breathing techniques [are] designed to have very specific and, often, immediate, energetic effects on the body.

The Breath Of Fire is a yogic breathing technique designed to not only cleanse, but heat and energize your body… at it’s [sic] core is a series of quick, panting-like exhales.

2. Exercise – one of the best things you can do to feel more energetic when you’re low on energy is to get active. Exercise initiates physiological changes in your body that increase blood flow and energy substrates to both your brain and skeletal muscles, increasing your alertness and overall energy availability.

3. Meditate – [Stress & anxiety] drain your energy lightning-fast… developing a daily meditation practice is an amazing antidote. It frees up a huge chunk of your mental energy and taps the relaxation-response, which rebalances both your nervous and endocrine systems. The net effect is both a deeper sense of calm and increased, enduring energy.

4. Improve your sleep – Much of the restorative work in your body happens when you sleep. This includes repairing damaged tissue and replenishing energy stores.

5. Listen to high-energy music – Not only does great music give you that near-magical second wind or extra kick when you are exercising, it also boosts your mood and energy during regular tasks. In fact, some research even revealed workers who listened to great classical music experienced increased productivity and creativity.
