No strength and energy at zero? To recharge your batteries, lift your tone and feel a surge of energy, try these simple tricks. You will be surprised: they really work!
1. Drink more water
It is the main source of energy in our body. To be alert and efficient, try to drink 150 ml of water every hour. Make sure it is warm or room temperature, not cold. This will improve metabolism — and there will be more energy.
And do not forget: a healthy adult should drink about one and a half liters of ordinary water per day. This is not only a guarantee of maintaining energy, but also a great ambulance for your beauty. Try to drink your water norm a day, and you will see how tender, silky and soft your skin of the face and body will become.
2. Make a fruit smoothie
For example, from pears, berries and oatmeal. You will need: a glass of low-fat kefir, 1 tbsp. l. oatmeal, pear, banana, a handful of berries. Mix all the ingredients in a blender, add a little honey. Such a drink energizes the body, increases defenses, has a positive effect on the digestive system and helps fight seasonal depression.
3. Do simple exercises
Here are two exercises that will engage fine motor skills and help you “restart” cognitive processes, relieve fatigue and nervous tension, and feel a surge of energy. Place one hand palm up. Within 30 seconds, tap on it with the edge of the other. Then swap them. Put your hands on the table: straighten and spread the fingers of one, bend the other, on the contrary. With bent fingers of one hand, make 10–12 “combing” movements from the tips to the base of the straightened fingers of the second. Change hands.
4. Move more
Any physical activity increases the flow of energy at times. To increase vitality, try to take a break from work every hour to do a few squats and bends. So you disperse the blood and improve performance.
In addition, there are special exercises that increase vitality. For example, the “inverted triangle” pose from yoga. Stand up straight, spread your legs wider than your shoulders. Take a wide step back with your right foot and turn the sock so that you fully stand on the foot, spread your arms to the sides. Lean towards the left leg, trying to reach her foot. At the same time, reach for the upper arm to the ceiling, try to align the whole body and bring it to the same plane. Hold this pose for a few seconds, then repeat on the other side.
5. Take a contrast shower
Alternating exposure to low and high temperatures makes the walls of blood vessels elastic, activates metabolic processes, and increases the protective functions of the body. First, it is recommended to warm up well under hot water. Then there should be a short dousing with cool. Don’t let yourself freeze. The shower shouldn’t be an ordeal. Three turns are enough. And then focus on your feelings. Every day gradually increase the temperature difference between hot and cold water.
6. Do something new every day
Apply the practice of the ancient Indians — “heyokas”. Its essence is to do something new every day that you have never done before. You can cook a dish according to a new recipe, draw something, learn a dance, go to the store along a different route — anything! Such experiments will help to shake things up and feel more cheerful and younger.
7. Plug in aromatherapy
Apply a drop of orange, grapefruit or cedarwood essential oils to a towel after a shower. The mood will immediately improve, and strength will come. To be in good shape all day, put 1–2 drops of cinnamon oil on a napkin in the morning and put it in a glass of hot water.
Increasing vitality and adding energy is not at all as difficult as it seems! Take action!
