9 Ways To Get More Energy Naturally (Even If You’re Drained)

9 Ways To Get More Energy Naturally (Even If You’re Drained)

Feeling drained and low on energy can be incredibly frustrating, especially when you have a busy life to tackle everyday. 

Good news: 

There are natural ways to boost your energy levels without resorting to quick fixes that leave you feeling worse. 

Here are 9 effective strategies to help you get more energy naturally— and bonus:

ALL of these contribute to longevity, anti-aging, and mental clarity! 

1. Embrace the most powerful plant substances on Earth 

We’re talking about adaptogens!

Adaptogens are natural substances (i.e. herbs and roots) that help your body adapt to stress and maintain balance. 

They can improve your energy levels by enhancing your body’s resistance to physical, chemical, and biological stress. 

Some popular adaptogens include:

  • Ashwagandha: Known for reducing stress and anxiety while boosting energy.
  • Rhodiola Rosea: Helps reduce fatigue and improve mental performance.
  • Holy Basil: Supports overall well-being and combats stress.

You can incorporate adaptogens into your daily routine through supplements, teas, or tinctures.

2. Incorporate the trendy funghi popping up in natural groceries everywhere 

Certain mushrooms are renowned for their energy-boosting properties. 

Two that stand out are:

  • Cordyceps: Enhances physical performance and combats fatigue by increasing ATP production.
  • Lion’s Mane: Improves cognitive function and reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Even kitchen-popular shitake mushrooms are powerhouse plants you should eat, plus: 

They are DELISH sauteed with salt, pepper, and a little garlic and lemon juice! 

Our Wholesome Organics Clean Energy Shots combine not only adaptogens, but medical mushrooms too! 

3. Prioritize consistent, screen-less sleep 

Getting enough high-quality sleep is crucial for maintaining energy levels. 

Here are some tips to improve your sleep hygiene:

  • Stick to a regular sleep schedule, even on weekends.
  • Create a restful environment: keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool.
  • Avoid screens and electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime.

Worth mentioning to avoid bad news, too! 

Easy, right? 

4. Carry a jug of water around so you actually drink it 

Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue. 

Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day. A good rule of thumb is to aim for at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily, but your needs may vary based on your activity level and environment.

Best to attach a water bottle to your hip; otherwise, it’s more effort to coordinate drinking water. 

5. Eat a diet that prioritizes protein, vegetables, and healthy fats 

Foods that give you energy include anything natural that isn’t riddled with preservatives, sugar, or high glycemic index ingredients (which includes flour). 

Focus on eating a balanced diet rich in:

  • Complex Carbohydrates: Focus on vegetables, they provide a steady source of energy, little to NO sugar, and richness in vitamins and minerals. 
  • Protein: Necessary for muscle repair and growth, and helps keep you feeling full and energized, plus, it keeps your mind right. 
  • Healthy Fats: Sources like avocados, nuts, and olive oil support sustained energy.

Avoid quick fixes like sugary snacks and processed foods, which can cause energy crashes. No thanks! 

6. Avoid low bar caffeine products found in too many places

While caffeine can provide a temporary energy boost, cheap caffeine products (free coffee that’s full of mold and chemicals, for example) often lead to crashes and dependency. 

Instead, opt for high-quality sources like:

  • Yerba mate
  • Matcha green tea
  • Organic, mold-free coffee (which you’ll need to seek out)
  • All of which should be sugar free. 

No one is telling you to get rid of caffeine drinks…

But you do need to reach for clean energy drinks that are healthy, otherwise, you’ll burn out your adrenal glands. 

Worth mentioning our Clean Energy Shots are made with yerba mate and guarana, with zero reports of crash or jitters. 

7. Limit your intake of these beauty, energy, and longevity killers 

Alcohol and sugar can severely impact your energy levels. 

Alcohol is a depressant and can interfere with sleep quality, while sugar causes spikes and crashes in your blood glucose levels. 

Reducing your intake of these substances can lead to more stable and sustained energy.

8. Get moving in some way, everyday

Regular physical activity can boost your energy levels by increasing endorphins and improving overall cardiovascular health. 

Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. 

Activities like walking, cycling, or yoga can be great options… but the point is:

DO SOMETHING everyday. 

Our lives are too sedentary, so you need to plan for movement. 

9. Manage stress, which can include negative news & people

Effective stress management techniques include:

  • Eliminate bad news media & people: Too much negative information from a screen or another human will inevitably bring you down and/or aggravate you. 
  • Deep Breathing Exercises: Reduces tension and increases oxygen flow.
  • Engaging in Hobbies: Doing something you enjoy can significantly reduce stress.

Also:

Incorporating ashwagandha to your life will aid your nervous system in regulating itself from the inundation of stress that modern life provides. 

Remember:

Consistency is key, and small changes can lead to significant improvements over time.
