Energy tip 1: Consistency
if you’re trying to get by with eating sporadic or irregular meals and snacks it’s like driving a car without any gas! You must put fuel into your body on a regular basis to get the most energy. So fuel up lady!
Aim to eat something every 4 to 6 hours. For the best energy combine a protein, fat and carbohydrate. To learn more watch this video.
Energy tip 2: Sleep
The best way to get energized is by getting more sleep. Research proves that sleep deprivation can be detrimental to your health and weight (not to mention your mood!). Practice better sleep hygiene by avoiding screens for 1 hour before your bedtime. Try some warm herbal tea or a bath to help you wind down and relax!
Aim for 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night.
Energy tip 3: Hydration
For the ultimate energy boost, the best secret is to be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. As little as 2% dehydration can leave you crankier, less able to concentrate, and feeling more sluggish. Who needs that? Bring a reusable water bottle to work and keep it in front of you — it’ll be a powerful visual reminder to drink throughout the day.
Treat yourself to an awesome water bottle! (& and carry it with you everywhere!)

Exercising on a regular basis is one of the absolute best things you can do for your health, regardless of your reasons for doing it. There is one big benefit from exercise, however, that can and will benefit you in almost every aspect of your life more energy. Studies have shown time and time again that exercise helps you feel more energetic and alert over time.
Scientists have concluded that one of the best ways to beat fatigue and oost energy is to exercise more, not less. Studies have shown that the more you move and it doesn’t have to be major movement, just getting up and walking around the room will help the more energy you will feel.
