Other than this, there are other small things too which are helpful in energizing and filling in vigor. Therefore, try these simple activities and get joyous and energetic instantly.

  1. Have a glass of sparkling water with a splash of fruit juice: Drink a glass of juice and refuel yourself with energy as juice contains carbs which are high in energy, recommends Karen Ansel, RD, spokeswoman and WD adviser in an American Dietetic Association. This also combats with dehydration that can trigger exhaustion and weariness.
  2. Sit up straight: This is very easy, for this one just needs to pay attention to mom. This is essential as stooping or crooked posture compels the muscles to apply more energy to work harder suggests Frank Lipman, MD, author of ‘Spent: End Exhaustion and Feel Great Again.’ Therefore, try that after every two hours, you take out few minutes to drop your shoulders, however keep in mind the factor that you don’t have to stoop or twist your neck and shoulders.
  3. Eat a handful of trail mix that contains dried fruit, nuts and seeds: Ansel describes this as an ideal blend for releasing rapid energy from fruits and slowly executed energy from nuts and seeds. So, from now onwards get chewy over these stuffs and always be on the energetic mode.
  4. Stop checking e-mail so often: Now-a-days, the regular phenomenon that we have started lacking is multi-tasking with technology. Whenever we conceive the bleeping sound or vibrations, we turn to catch over our cell phones to check the voice mails or incoming calls or e-mails and leave our work aside. Actually, this practice can be demanding as it diverts our attention from the regular course of action and become a hindrance. Therefore, instead keep aside five to ten minutes in every hour to check them.
  5. Take a breather: Seriously, try this as it provides for relaxation and disperses stress which is the main energy destructor. Try this simple exercise, that is recommended by Dr. Lipman, put your feet flat over the floor, rest your hands over your lap, close your eyes and hold this position for three minutes so that you can feel the ground touch by the feet and concentrate while you inhale and exhale breaths.
  6. Walk a quick, brisk lap around your office or house: This practice triggers a swift blood flow to your muscles and brain that leads for providing the body a boost of oxygen.
  7. Sniff some peppermint: This is an effective practice, really. One research results concluded saying that people who smelled peppermint and performed the tasks like typing and alphabetizing did their job perfectly and quickly. Therefore, keep peppermint-scented candle wherever you spent a lot of time like at your drawing room, under the bed, inside the drawers which you look in often.
  8. Eat a few squares of dark chocolate: Chocolate contains compound that works as mood-boosters suggests Ansel. Now, you can get your hand over the dark chocolates.
