10 Natural Remedies to Boost Your Energy

Low energy levels can get in the way of accomplishing what you want and being the person you want to be each day. But this doesn’t have to be your everyday reality. Often, small but significant tweaks to your lifestyle can make a huge difference.

Here are some all-natural ways to boost your energy and feel younger again!

1. START WITH SOME PROTEIN
Unless you’re intermittent fasting, some protein first thing in the day can boost your energy.

High-quality protein helps keep you satisfied, and research shows protein at breakfast may keep you fuller longer than at other meals of the day.

Try having at least 30 grams of animal protein first thing in the morning with your breakfast.

2. GET SUNLIGHT IN THE MORNING
Getting enough sun has many benefits:

It can increase the release of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin helps boost your mood and support more focus and calm.
Boosted serotonin levels can also help you sleep better at night, feeling more refreshed and energized each morning.
It triggers your body to make , which is essential for brain function, fighting inflammation, bone health, and so much more.
Getting enough sunlight regulates your hormones and biological clock, affecting sleep quality and mood.
Just 5-10 minutes per day can make a huge difference.

If you live in cloudy area or it’s a time of year when the sun is out less, a light therapy box can also provide a dose of sunlight first thing in the morning.

3. EXERCISE TO START YOUR DAY
Physical activity can help boost your energy levels and fight fatigue, especially in the morning.

Do some moderate activity before you go to work or start a busy day. This could be:

Power walking
Heavy cleaning (like vacuuming, mopping, washing windows)
Bicycling
Power mowing the lawn
Playing tennis
Water aerobics
Ballroom dancing

4. DRINK WATER ALL DAY
Hydration is often underrated when it comes to low energy levels. You should aim for 1-3 liters of water per day, preferably more than two.

Try drinking a huge glass of water right after you wake up—then many times throughout your day—and chances are you’ll start to notice a huge difference.

If you eat low-carb and feel tired all the time, you might also need more electrolytes. Try adding high-quality sea salt or an electrolyte blend to your water.

And if you workout regularly, as recommended in #3, drink plenty of water after any physical activity to replenish what you lose through sweat.

5. UPGRADE YOUR DIET (GET IN THE KETO ZONE)
What you eat can have a huge effect on your energy levels. Your food is your body’s fuel, after all!

This is why those on the Keto Zone Diet experience such as positive shift in their energy levels. They’re burning fat and fueling their bodies with the cleanest foods possible!

6. UTILIZE KETONES
If you’re eating keto, taking Instant Ketones can help boost your energy and keep you in the Keto Zone.

7. MONITOR YOUR CALORIES
Are you eating enough to keep you alert? While many of us struggle with overeating, sometimes you can get so swept up in life that you forget to eat when you’re hungry (especially if you experience the appetite-suppressing effects of the Keto Zone!).

Make sure to eat when you feel hungry—and eat clean foods—to give your body enough calories to fuel the day.

8. MAKE SLEEP MORE OF A PRIORITY
Sleep is largely underrated when it comes to health and energy levels. Your body needs sleep to rest, heal, and repair, and protect you from a variety of health issues including high blood pressure and heart disease. Lack of sleep can leave you with low energy levels all day.

If you don’t get at least 7-8 hours of sleep, find ways to gradually shift your schedule and increase your sleeping window.

9. SPEND TIME IN PRAYER
Sometimes low energy levels have more to do with your emotional state—feeling depressed, discouraged, or out of alignment with where you want to be in life.

If you’re wrestling with things emotionally, make time each day to reflect and turn to God in prayer. Ask for guidance in working through what’s holding you back.

10. REACH OUT FOR SUPPORT
Don’t struggle alone. Chances are certain lifestyle changes can help your low energy levels, so look for others who will walk with you on your journey to better health. Reach out to friends, family, church members, or even online communities who will encourage you.

In some cases, low energy levels may be a result of dealing with more complex issues like anemia, allergies, or anxiety or depression, cases where it’s important to talk with your doctor. However, in most instances, these natural remedies can help boost your energy levels immensely. Give them a try and see how you feel!
