Natural Health: Energy Tips

While these tips won't give you the same energy rush as a cup of coffee, putting these tips and techniques into practice, so they become habits, will help raise your overall energy level by reducing or eliminating things that can drain on us.

- Make decisions quickly. The Max Planck Institute for Human Development found that gut decisions, even in complex situations, usually yielded the best results.
- Wear "warm" colors, like red, yellow, or orange.
- Take breaks from technology. Whether it's a one-hour break in the middle of the day, or a ten-minute break every hour, these breaks help you focus and make you more productive.
- Don't waste time and energy on regret. If you make a mistake, do what you can to apologize and fix it, and move on.
- Jump. It ups your heart rate, which sends oxygen through your muscles. Plus, it can lift your mood!
- Use ice water. Sip very cold water, run cold water over your hands and wrists, or splash your face.
- Use mint - mint gum or mints, or even just a fresh mint plant that you rub periodically to release the scent.
