At times in life, we feel low and not so energetic. At such times, some quick tips and techniques can boost our energy levels!
Here are 6 easy and simple tips to get rid of occasional lethargy:
Replacing the burger with an apple
Yes yes, it’s not easy! To be more compassionate and practical, start by replacing either one of the burgers or sandwiches with an apple initially! Stress, lack of exercise, junk food and bad food habits create toxins in the body. So, adopting good food habits can help avoid such harmful toxins in the body.
Load your tummy with fruits and throw away the toxins
Consuming fruits, juices or food that eliminates toxins can help to a very large extent by removing lethargy from the body. Drinking lots of water also helps restore energy in body.
Shine like a sun with Sun Salutations!
Sun Salutations (Surya namaskars) are very good for kicking away lethargy. All yoga exercises are good for this, but Surya namaskar is a complete package and it has a great influence on our nervous system. It works on all parts of the body and keeps you more energetic throughout the day.
Simply breathe it out!
Too many thoughts can drain your energy and tire you mentally. The best solution for this is breathing exercises as they bring your mind back in the present moment and help you focus better.
Bhastrika prananyam is one of the best energizers out there. Just a few rounds of Bhastrika pranayama boost your energy levels.
Rest well in meditation
When one feels lethargic, basically the body wants rest. But excessive sleep brings heaviness. The more you sleep the more lethargy you accumulate. Meditation gives a deeper rest to the body than sleep. Experts suggest a healthy sleep of 6-8 hours every day to be healthy and full of energy.
Become a fountain of joy and enthusiasm
A consistent practice of yoga, breathing practices and meditation can keep you fresh and energetic. This regular practice will let you have a peaceful mind, a healthy and disease free body and a positive spirit.
These quick tips should help you kick lethargy out of life in no time. However, if you have been feeling lethargic for a prolonged period of time, and your personal or professional life are getting affected by it, then consulting a physician is highly recommended.
