Can I Boost My Energy?

If you find yourself feeling lethargic, you are not alone. If this is a chronic problem for you, we recommend talking with your healthcare provider about potential underlying causes.

However, there may be a few at-home remedies that you can try to get a little boost of energy! Read on as our team at AFC Urgent Care Sevierville gives a few helpful hints.

What Are Some Ways to Get an Energy Boost?

You may be feeling tired because you have not established general healthy habits, and you may even be lacking quality sleep. One important way to stay energized is to establish a regular sleep cycle.

Listed below are a few more ways to boost your energy.

Energy-Boosting Habits

  • Control stress through activities like meditation or yoga.
  • Avoid destructive habits like smoking or overeating.
  • Eat foods that are energizing.
  • Limit alcohol intake.
  • Avoid caffeine after 2 p.m.
  • Stay hydrated.

What Are Exercises That Are Actually Energizing?

You may be feeling too tired to even consider exercising. However, some forms of activity may actually leave you feeling rejuvenated and excited.

A good rule of thumb is to make exercise enjoyable so that it is something you want to do, even at the end of a long day. And if later in the day does not work for you, mornings might be a better option. Listed below are some exercises that may be energizing.

Energizing Activities

  • Certain types of yoga
  • A brisk walk outdoors
  • A cardio exercise that is not overly strenuous, especially earlier in the day. Consider things like Zumba or dancing.
  • Light weight-lifting
