Do you feel tired often and don’t know why? You get plenty of sleep and eat well, so what gives? Well regular exercise is also needed to get your energy levels up. You also need to make sure that you’re regulating your thoughts and weeding out the negative ones as much as possible. Read on for some great tips to make you more alert.
1. Try Exercising In The Morning
As someone who loves sleep, I understand the struggle of trying to get up a little earlier in the morning to exercise. But I’ve learned that if I choose not to exercise in the morning, the rest of my day will be chaos. This is because without exercise I’m lethargic, exhausted and at times it feels impossible to accomplish tasks. Many other people have the same struggle. So what are you going to do? For me, going to the gym in the morning helps me to get started for the day. I get up an hour early, stretch, eat a light meal and head out to the gym. I then exercise for about an hour, rinse off and head to work. I feel more confident and awake because of this routine.
2. When You Don’t Have Time To Hit The Gym
When you don’t have time to hit the gym, exercise at home. Do some circuit training starting with some cardio (try jumping jacks, high knees, high kicks and running in place). Next do some lunges, mountain climbers and pushups. You’d be amazed how much these exercises do to get your energy up and relax your mind.
3. Keep Track Of Your Thoughts
There’s nothing like negative thinking to get you down and exhaust you. What helps me to feel better is trying not to care what other people think. For example, if someone you were interested in romantically doesn’t like you back, instead of thinking, “I’m not good enough for him, I’m a loser,” change your thought to “I’m great and whether someone likes me or not, that doesn’t change my worth.”
Remember to consult your physician or chiropractor before taking any health advice.
