4 instant energy boosters
Browse main article categories
We all have days when our energy is low.
If it continues for a long period of time, then it’s important to look at and treat the underlying cause.
Sometimes, however, we just have a busy day, a full schedule or are suffering lack of sleep and an energy slump might strike mid afternoon!
If you can’t rest, then here are 4 instant energy boosters. They are natural, safe, effective and only take a few minutes to do.
Instead of reaching for caffeine to give you a fix, opt for a cup of herbal tea instead.
Good choices are peppermint, lemon or ginger.
Inhale a drop of peppermint or rosemary essential oil from a handkerchief or straight from the bottle. These stimulating oils will uplift and energise you.
Alternatively, make up a blend of 1 tablespoon of carrier oil into which you have put 1 drop of grapefruit and 1 drop bergamot essential oil. Spend a few moments massaging this oil into the back of your neck.
Alternate nostril breathing
The reason we yawn when tired is to oxygenate the system. By spending a couple of minutes breathing through alternate nostrils, you can give yourself an oxygen boost too.
Alternate nostril breathing works to clean and rejuvenate your channels of energy, so you’ll feel revitalised in moments!
Find out how to do alternate nostril breathing.
Do these simple exercises for 30 seconds each; they will help pump oxygen around your body:
- briskly rub the palms of your hands together
- massage your shoulders and neck
- pat gently under your navel
- stand up and brush your hands down your arms and legs
