Boosting Energy w/o Coffee

Everyone needs a boost in their energy levels but how can one accomplish this without coffee? Too much caffeine consumed on a daily basis can actually have negative effects on the body as it can cause adrenal fatigue, weight gain, gastrointestinal distress, chronic fatigue and mood irregularity.

Here are some DIY energy boosting health tips to incorporate into your daily regime to avoid dependence on caffeine:

  • drink more water as it is a quick pick-me-up
  • eat healthy fats as they provide the body with energy
  • consume some superfoods like spirulina as it is the richest nutrient and complete food that boosts energy and maintains a healthy weight
  • take a brisk walk as increasing your physical activity increases your energy and adjusts your stress hormones that make you feel energized
  • listen to positive up-beat music
  • wash your face with cold water as it stimulates your body and speeds up circulation
  • get to bed an hour earlier so you are not sleep deprived and then reliant on caffeine to wake you up
  • apply pressure to outer rim of your ear to invigorate your entire body
  • drink a green beverage consisting of kale, lemon, celery, ginger and one small apple

When you are in need of an energy boost, instead of reaching for that additional cup of coffee, try incorporating one or more of the natural energy boosters.
