Have you ever wondered what you can do to get more energy? As women we are ALWAYS running around doing something, which means we need a lot of energy to keep up with everything! Whether working, working out, caring for our families, going to school, or preparing for another day there is always something happening and no time to slow down or recover.
After talking with a few girlfriends last week I realized I wasn’t the ONLY one who was feeling run down and in need of an energy boost. We each shared a few of our favorite strategies for helping us make it through the day or through the week. Check out these 5 quick tips to help you get more energy!

Tip #1 : Miss the Gym
What?! Yes I said it! If you feel like your body is run down and your workouts are getting sloppy, then take a day off. Taking a day off from the gym will help your body recover from the usual routine and make you feel better the next time you pop in for a sweat session. If you feel guilty taking the day off, then switch up your workout for something different – try a class, go for a walk – and make sure you stick to your flat stomach diet plan.
Tip #2 : Stay Hydrated
Most people THINK they drink enough water when in fact you we barely meet our daily quota. Instead of opting for another cup of coffee reach for a glass of water. Water is fuel for your body and will help to rehydrate you while making you feel more energized to get through the day. The big question always is – how much water should I drink? This depends on how active you are — recent studies suggest that women should drink between 2 and 3 liters of water each day. How much you drink depends on how active you are and how much you feel your body needs!
Tip #3 : Drink Tea
Many people don’t truly know the amazing benefits of tea. Drinking a glass of green tea will help to boost your energy levels while helping to boost your metabolism and burn fat. That’s just the beginning of the benefits of green tea! The list of green tea benefits will require a whole other post! (I’ll get right on that!)
Tip #4: Pep Talk Time!
If you are feeling down in the dumps and frustrated — try finding at least ONE good thing that you have accomplished. Refocus yourself on your goals and move forward. There are plenty of days that we feel lackluster because we feel lost or on the wrong path. Take a moment to remind yourself of what you are trying to achieve and think of how much you have already accomplished. This quick pep talk with yourself will help you give you more energy to make it through the task you are working on and even the day!
Tip #5 : Get your Dance On
You know that song that just makes you feel good? The song that whenever you hear it you just have to move a little – no matter where you are? Find that song and put it on! Do a little dance – laugh at yourself for being silly – then get moving for the rest of the day! My current ‘get your dance on song’ is….
