6 Natural Ways to Boost Energy

Try these easy, natural ways to get a shot of energy this winter.

Space out. Give your multitasking mind a rest with a few minutes for daydreaming or chatting with a friend.

Go for a walk. Research has shown that the more steps people take each day, the higher they rate their overall mood and energy level.

Hydrate. Dehydration can lower concentration and fatigue the body.

Have a snack. Combine protein and complex carbs (ex. a hard-boiled egg with whole wheat toast, an apple and peanut butter, cheese and crackers) to energize the body and keep blood sugar levels balanced.

Meditate. Take time every day to slow down and focus on your breathing.

Hit play. Research shows that background music can help boost focus, energy, productivity, and happiness.
