For years when I’ve trained people (and I’ve even noticed this in normal everyday interactions), I’ll greet someone and ask how they are doing and their response is “Tired”.

One of the fastest ways to feel tired is to say you’re tired. So stop it!

If you are feeling low energy: Do some things to bring you back into energy!

My faves:

  • Exercise! Even if it’s a minute of jumping jacks…get your blood pumping.
  • Drink some water. Ice cold. Shock yourself back into the present.
  • Take a power nap. 15-30 minutes tops. Don’t over do it or you’ll feel even more groggy afterwards. Unless you’ve been sleep deprived-then try to catch up. More importantly, try to get the same amount of full sleep every night.
  • Meditate for 5-10 minutes. You don’t even need to close your eyes. Just sit still and comfortably. Breathe deeply and find peace.
  • Pranayama-yoga breathing. Full, deep breaths for approx. 5 seconds in and 5 seconds out. Maximum capacity of the lungs, slowly.
  • Step outside-stand in the sun! Vitamin D. Be like a lizard and let the sun do its thang! ☀️
  • A cup of hot green tea. REAL green tea. No sugar. Honey if you need some sweetness.
  • Play with your pet. Nothing beats feeling tired like a walk with your pup or a game of catch.
  • Laugh. Watch a comedy special, a comedy podcast, go to your friend or coworker who is great at jokes (there’s always one!) and get a good laugh in.
  • Duh! DANCE PARTY! Put on your fave song and rock out (stay safe if you’re driving 😬😂) or go full out at home or in your office. If someone sees you, say “You’re welcome! Next time, I charge you! 😂”.

Try a few or all of them next time you find you’re struggling with your day!
