In our second edition of The Daily Guru’s guide to ‘Flourishing’, we follow on perfectly from yesterday’s ‘Flourishing at Home’. As previously mentioned, our outer world affects our inner world and therefore your first steps were to ‘de-clutter’ the space where you spend the most time and ensure it reflects the vibes and personality you need. So now that you have your outer world in order, we need to focus inwardly. Today, we will be specifically focusing on your energy!

 

Flourishing Energy

As we all know, there is a definite link between energy and wellbeing; the more energy you have, the more productive you become. Typically, when we are accomplishing a lot, we feel very satisfied and proud of our efforts. In fact, happiness itself is energising! Studies show that the more energy you have, the more self-control and motivation you exhibit, which means that you are better equipped to avoid moments of temptation and procrastination. It is true, then, that everything related to creating more energy points your life in a positive direction.

So let’s start by looking at how to improve your energy levels, by today’s three great steps to creating Flourishing Energy in your life:

 

Find the perfect exercise for yourself!

It’s easy to get caught up in the latest craze of exercise regimes. I am personally all for giving everything a try. But different types of exercise will have different effects on your body and everyone tends to respond differently to all the varying options out there. For some individuals, high intensity training offers the best results, in terms of energy and physical appearance. Yet, others gain better results through a gentler exercise routine, such as walking, yoga or Pilate’s classes. These two different exercise regimes offer varying energy and fitness results, based on the individual’s body type and health. So, what’s the perfect exercise regime for you? There is so much for you to choose from, starting with group sports and Zumba/dance classes, through to enjoying the outdoors with some regular running or ocean swimming. It’s time for you to go have some fun and try a few things out. See what has the best outcome for YOU, in terms of YOUR energy and then make that a regular part of your exercise routine.

You are what you eat!

As a culture, we have become accustomed to refueling ourselves with caffeine and sugar fixes to get through the day. In the short term, these foods do offer the desired effect, but with a number of other side effects on our health. It’s time to become aware of what you are putting in your body, as part of your 3 meals a day. If you notice that your energy levels are dipping, or perhaps they more closely resemble a roller coaster, your diet may be letting you down. Here are some super-fuelling foods to add to your meals and keep you moving forward:

  • Raw Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Citrus Fruits
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach &/or Kale
  • Lean Meats
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Green Tea
  • Garlic

Create a good sleep pattern.

Creating a regular sleep routine will do wonders to your energy levels throughout the day. As we know, 8 hours of sleep a night is a great guide to go by. If you struggle with falling to sleep at night, a good tip is to soak your feet in warm water for 15 minutes before you go to bed. This exercise helps draw the energy out of your head and away from your busy brain, and helps to relax the whole body. Also try sleeping with your curtains or blinds slightly open, so that you wake more easily when the sun rises. Studies show that light helps optimise the body’s wake-up process and since some of us need all the help we can get in the early mornings, keep those blinds open! And lastly…avoid that snooze button!! Over at DG, we believe the inventor of the snooze button was an evil genius. No good comes from using it, yet we all succumb to hitting the snooze button from time to time. By falling back to sleep, you could be interrupting your hormone cycle, which consequently can make it harder to get going.

 

By observing your current routines in exercise, diet and sleep and amending them accordingly, you will be amazed at how quickly your energy begins to flourish.
