Try a Peppermint Refresher!
The strong smell of peppermint will not only wake you up, but it will help you to move through your day more quickly and efficiently. Keep a bottle of essential peppermint oil in your purse or drawer at work for a quick pick-me-up! Aah, refreshing!
Rub Your Ears!
Did you know that by stimulating certain pressure points on your ear, you can increase blood circulation and energize your entire body? It’s true! Vigorously rub your ears for one minute and feel the energy flow.
Sleep in The Dark!
To ensure full cycles of sleep, make your bedroom as dark as possible. Light inhibits melatonin secretions, and thus it resets the biological clock, making us tired. If you don’t have enough blinds, shades or curtains to make it dark, try a sleeping mask. I’ve got a leopard-print one! Makes it even more fun, and fun is always energizing.
Stand Straight – Sit Straight!
Slouching can cause your brain to receive up to 30% less blood and oxygen. It also compresses your internal organs, compromising their efficiency. Hunching over your computer promotes shallow breathing. Oh, it’s a vicious cycle. Break it!
Changing the colors of your four walls can give your home and your brain a much-needed lift. Or – if you don’t want to paint – try repositioning your furniture to get the chi (energy) moving again throughout your home.
Feed Your Head!
Approximately 50-60% of your brain is pure fat. The fat serves as insulation for your brain’s billions of nerve cells. The better insulated the cells, the faster your brain sends messages and the speedier your thinking. Eat a mix of healthy fats for energy and productivity! Here are few excellent choices: wild salmon, mackerel, anchovies, dark green leafy vegetables, or avocado.
Spend one day a month in total silence! It may seem difficult at first, but I guarantee that you will find it refreshing and energizing. Imagine, just for a moment, what it might be like to give the chatterbox in your head a rest!
Let The Light Shine In!
Studies show that 20 minutes of sunlight can make all the difference in your energy level. If the weather’s bad, or you’re housebound, go sit by the window! Open your blinds. Get as close to daylight as you can, and smile.
