10 Ways to Improve Your Daily Energy
- Nov 29, 2021
“Where do you find the energy?” Clichéd phrase or genuine question? Either way, gaining enough energy to get through the day can sometimes be a struggle, and for others, it may feel like a full-time job. But there are several things you can do that can help you feel more awake, alert and energized from the moment you wake up to when it’s time to hit the hay. Some are easy, and you can start increasing your energy today! Others are going to take some time, but once you get rolling, you’ll be too hyped up to stop. Here are 10 ways to improve your daily energy.
Better Sleep = Better Energy
It makes sense, doesn’t it? If you’re feeling tired and low on energy, you may just need to sleep. But it’s not just about getting more sleep. In fact, too much sleep could be making you more tired throughout the day. And the time you spend sleeping is less important than the quality of sleep you get. Quality sleep comes from making your room, bed and pillows comfortable for your specific needs. Limiting the amount you eat, drink, exercise or use screens during the hour or two before bed can also improve your sleep. Consistent sleep schedules – going to bed and waking up at the same time every day (even on holidays and weekends) – can help you get a higher quality of sleep and have more energy. And for a little help with your sleep, try Sleep Well Gummies from Forever Well™, packed with melatonin and other premium ingredients to facilitate a better night’s sleep.
A balanced diet full of nutrient-rich, low-glycemic foods can help you feel more energized for longer and keep you going all day long. If you eat unhealthy, greasy, sugary foods, you will pay for it later with less energy and a sluggish, groggy feeling. That’s because food equals energy. If you don’t take in enough calories, you’ll experience an energy deficiency that could result in headaches, brain fog, delayed reflexes and tiredness. But if you don’t get your calories from good, nutritious foods, you won’t get the energy you need and could even feel more tired than before!
Energy Well Gummies from Forever Well are an excellent way to give you the extra boost of energy you need. They’re not a replacement for a balanced, healthy and active lifestyle, but Energy Well Gummies fit in perfectly to any wellness routine and can elevate your energy levels to new heights. Their delicious apple blend flavor makes them a joy to take any time of day. Each vegan gummy is formulated with premium ingredients like apple cider vinegar, vitamin B12 and beetroot and pomegranate juice powders.

Exercise for Energy
It might sound counterintuitive, but consistent, daily exercise can help you keep your energy levels high. That’s because exercise can increase your hormone output, including testosterone and adrenaline, and in turn, raise your energy levels. And you don’t have to go over the top. Even starting with some easy exercise, like a light walk, can help increase your energy tremendously. As you continue to exercise, you’ll raise the intensity of your workouts and benefit from even more energy.
Drink Your Water
Dehydration is one of the leading causes of low energy levels. And when you consider your body is about 60% water, and you lose water throughout the day (more when you’re active), it makes sense you need a significant amount of water to keep your body running properly. Replenishing your fluids is important to avoid fatigue and energy deficiencies. But you have to choose the right fluids. Watch out for high-sugar beverages and other ingredients you don’t need. Sticking with water is an excellent way to stay hydrated and energized.
Come on, this one is obvious. In today’s modern age, literally every adult knows the inherent dangers of smoking tobacco. Nicotine can speed up your heart rate, raise your blood pressure and stimulate your brain-wave activity. All these effects can make it harder to fall asleep. Then, once you’re asleep, you’ll be awoken by cravings for more nicotine. And if you can’t sleep, your energy levels will suffer. Also, smoking is gross. Just quit already.
Limit Alcohol Consumption
This one has more to do with when you want energy. It’s simple: alcohol can make you feel drowsy or lethargic. So, if you drink, you’ll probably lose energy. But if you’re okay with losing that energy, say having a drink closer to the end of the day versus at lunch, then by all means, enjoy! Additionally, while drinking alcohol can make you drowsy, it can actually make it harder to sleep. Alcohol raises your body’s epinephrine level, which increases the heart rate and stimulates the body, and therefore can result in a restless sleep. As we said, if you can’t sleep, your energy levels will suffer.
About 80% of adults use some form of caffeine every day. And considering the energy boost that caffeinated drinks like coffee can give you, it’s no wonder why. But be careful with caffeine. Like anything else, too much of a “good thing” can be bad for you. Make sure to look out for high sugars in caffeinated drinks and other ingredients you don’t want. Plus, too much caffeine can increase your stress levels and make it harder to sleep – so enjoy in moderation and not after 2 P.M.
Speaking of stress, less of it means more energy. Stressing out and getting frustrated, angry and emotional can waste precious energy you need for daily activities. Controlling your stress can help improve stress levels while providing numerous other health benefits. A great way to reduce stress is with light exercise after a long day and activities like yoga that can also provide more energy.
See Your Doctor
Finally, if you’re dealing with a lack of energy, you may have an underlying medical condition that could become even more serious if left untreated. Consult your trusted medical professional to learn if you need to do more, eat less or explore medical options to increase your energy levels. Even if you feel fine, getting a professional opinion is always a great idea.
We hope you’ll consider all these options in your journey to greater energy levels. While some are harder than others, it’s undeniable that the easiest is including Energy Well Gummies into your daily health and wellness regimen.
