Natural Fixes for Low Energy

Next time you’re dragging, take advantage of the full power of your senses to kick your body and mind into high gear.

Sound:
Listening to upbeat music for about an hour a day can help reduce fatigue.

Touch:
Does the thought of socializing make you want to crawl in bed? Put yourself in a mingling mood by rubbing something smooth on your hands.

Sight:
Yellow, orange and lilac are the colors most closely linked with a healthy mood. Try using these tones on your walls or around the room to increase alertness.

Smell:
The smell of peppermint or cinnamon can reduce stress. Rub a drop of one of these essential oils onto your wrists when your energy level starts to slump.

Taste:
A mix of cooling and tangy citrus flavors can up your energy by activating nerves in the mouth, throat, and nose that trigger brain activity.

    Interesting entry. I think I could start with rubbing a smooth object against my palm.
