Energy Boost I

Lack of energy can have many causes, but it often turns out that it is a state of mind as well. You can get some gumption by taking action and elevate your spirit. No, I am not talking medications here; those only solve the consequence, but not the problem.

The following tips may not solve the problem either, but they are most definitely a better, easier, cheaper and more pleasant way of boosting your energy:

Turn up the tunes.
Listen to your favorite CD on the way to work, or sing along to “Elmo and Friends” with your grand kids. Researchers have found that listening to music helps boost energy and stimulates positive thinking.

Straighten up.
Bad posture can slowly sap your energy. According to the International Chiropractors Association, slouching requires your muscles to work harder to hold up your body, and that can lead to fatigue. Just 15 minutes of reading or typing in a slouched position strains the neck, shoulders and upper-back muscles.

Take a break from work every 30 minutes.
Go for a quick walk around the office, get a glass of water or do a few slow stretches to get your blood flowing. Practice good posture by ensuring that your shoulders and hips are aligned, and your head is straight. At your desk, sit in a chair that provides good lower-back support, and keep your knees slightly higher than your hips.

Do a mini meditation.
Setting aside time to do mini meditations throughout the day can help when you're overwhelmed by demands at work, dealing with a needy friend or just feeling stressed about the state of the world. Meditations help refocus your thoughts and create positive energy. Find a quiet spot with no distractions, sitting in a relaxed position with your eyes closed and taking deep, slow breaths. Focus only on breathing in and out. As outside thoughts enter your consciousness, acknowledge them and then refocus on your breathing. Do this for three minutes.

I think there is a much better solution then meditation: prayer! You don't even have to find a quiet spot and don't have to focus on your breathing either. You can pray any time and anywhere, even if it is only for a brief period of time. God hears you, always!

Psalm 69:13
But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, in the acceptable time; O God, in the multitude of Your mercy, Hear me in the truth of Your salvation.
