Tiredness and a lack of energy appear to be such common symptoms
It is the number one thing that many people complain about and the key reason they seek treatment either through conventional medical routes or using complementary approaches, whilst every magazine, newspaper and television programme offers advice on how to become more energetic. But how helpful s this advice and what do you really need to do to have more energy now? Read on to find out the real secrets of how to combat tiredness and boost your energy levels, and as a result improve your health for good.
Tiredness seems such a small problem
But can have a huge impact on your life and health. Completing everyday takes becomes harder, taking exercise is less appealing or not possible at all, leisure time with family is more of a chore than a pleasure, and as your health deteriorates you have less motivation to do something about it. A continual lack of energy can in the end catch you in a vicious circle of increasingly poor health which drains your energy further, affecting your family, relationships and work.
But how to address this most common of symptoms so that you can live your life feeling more energetic, happier and ultimately healthier? Try out this 3 step plan:
Step 1 – Identify Your Energy Saboteurs
It is impossible to really start to improve your energy levels until you know where energy drains exist in your life – the ‘who’ or ‘what’ that is detrimentally affecting your precious reserves. Whilst some areas such as poor sleep patterns may be more obvious, others are less so. Could your environment, the people around you and the way you respond to day to day stresses also be contributing to your constant tiredness?
Think about your day to day life. What are the most energy draining aspects, how are these appearing in your life, and what you can do about them? Choose one key aspect and take action.
An area to consider are potential energy vampires, those people who always seem to leave you tired and drained when you’ve spent time in their company. Notice who these people are and next time you’re in their company try to clearly set your boundaries as to how you’re going to react. Empathise with them but don’t engage, and watch how their influence on you and the negative impact on your energy levels reduces.
Step 2 – Find Your Energy Quick Fixes
While you’re finding out what is responsible for draining your energy, and even when you have, these sneaky energy saboteurs in check, there will be times when something catches you by surprise, instantly leaving you feeling tired with all the unpleasant results this brings. Life can be tiring, but the secret is knowing what you can quickly, easily and unobtrusively do to boost your energy evens before tiredness gets a hold again and undoes all your good work.
What you need is your Instant Solutions, your own special and trusted techniques or tools that you know will help you quickly and easily restore your energy on a day to day basis.

So next time you feel tired try drinking a glass of water and watch your energy levels soar again.
Step 3 – Some Extra Help
We all need a helping hand from time to time, that little extra support when things are hard going. Improving your energy levels is no different. But rather than reaching for that energy drink when you need to feel more energetic quickly, choose a more natural and healthier option. Not only will a natural helping hand boost your energy both now and for the future, you’ll be better supporting your longer term well being at the same time. How good is that?
