Feeling tired all the time? Wish you had more energy in the day so you could actually get stuff dome, and you know, be productive?
It can be a challenge to find the energy you need to get through the day.
Maybe you wake-up feeling tired. Or you just plain old lack motivation.
Maybe you want to exercise but you just feel so tired when you go to work-out.
Maybe you think you’re lazy.
You are never going to be successful in life if you feel tired all the time.
You need to know how to have more energy so you can actually get things done.
You don’t want to feel exhausted and worn out. And you definitely do not want to give up.
But the sheer amount of work it takes to be successful is intimidating.
Checking your email, networking, putting in the legwork, doing your homework… you need Herculean energy to get through all that work.
And then there are the times life throws you a curve ball.
You get sick. You go through a breakup. You’ve got bills on the kitchen table that you can’t even imagine paying. How the Jiminy Crickets are you ever going to survive all that?
Start Creating More Energy. Stop Feeling Tired All The Time
Energy is invaluable.
Energy is more valuable than money, more valuable than intelligence, perhaps even more valuable than time itself.
Because without energy you simply cannot do anything.
When you have no energy you lie in bed all day or just generally sit there staring into space like a mad-person.
Energy is everything.
It’s from sheer energy that dreams become reality.
That’s why positive people are proactive about it. They take steps to actually creating energy in the day time so they can get stuff done.
So how do we do it?
How do we create energy?
5 Ways To Have More Energy In The Day And Less Fatigue
1. Manage your energy by staying in the moment
Let me ask you a question:
What percentage of your energy is wasted on thoughts and imaginings?
The average person spends 47% of waking hours thinking about things that aren’t actually happening.
That is a whopping chunk of energy that you’re spending on things that don’t even exist!
And it is no wonder we feel so tired all day when the average person thinks approximately 70 thousands thoughts per day.
But don’t worry, there is a solution to this problem.
The solution is staying in the moment and being mindful.
Stay in the moment.
Just focus your mind on what you are actually doing right now.
Whatever you are doing, focus on that. Then your energy will be spend effectively. That’s how to manage your energy.
2. Stop being such a damn empath
I am yelling at myself here: Stop being such a darned empath all the time.
Empaths are people who feel the emotions of other people.
You will know if you’re an empath because you will constantly be aware of everyone else’s emotions.
Last year scientific research showed that empaths were suffering from adrenal fatigue because they are so tired from absorbing everyone else’s emotions.
Let other people have their emotions. You have yours. Besides, if you’re anything like me you already have enough emotions for 50 people anyway.
3. You’ve got to let yourself relax at times
One of the best ways to find energy is just to let yourself chill out, dude.
Energy isn’t like money. When you spend money it’s gone—well, unless you wisely invest your money in the stock market or in investment schemes.
Energy is rechargeable. It really is like the Duracell Bunny. You turn off your system for a while and the juice recharges.
Trick is, if you never turn off you never recharge.
This is the biggest mistake most people make. They’re so desperate to succeed that they never turn off. They just wear themselves into the ground until they’re completely spent. Then illness, depression, and stress happen.
A wiser way is to have self love.
Let yourself switch off when you need to. Then your mind can clear and your energy can recharge.
If you want more energy, you have to take advantage of the Use / Recharge system. The more you allow yourself to recharge today the more energy you will have tomorrow.
4. Stop Destroying Your Third Eye
Your third eye is the locust of power and wisdom that resides within your forehead, between your eyebrows. For the longest time it was thought that the third eye was purely mythical. But science has proven that the third eye does exist. And it plays a vital role in your life.
The role of the third eye is to provide clairvoyant insight and wisdom, which you need to create the right mindset for success. The problem is that the third eye is harmed by many every day items.
For instance, distractions like bright lights and loud music can interfere with your third eye. The solution is to allow your mind to switch off at night. Turn the lights off when the sun goes down and allow yourself to enjoy a more natural night. This will heal your third eye and give you more energy.
5. Avoid toxic people and toxic relationships
Unless you’re one of the very few people who have only positive relationships, there will be a few people in your life who are killing your energy.
These people are like energy vampires. They suck away your positivity, your strength, and your energy.
You’ve got to get away from those people.
Maybe you feel guilty at the idea of leaving them. But remember, you deserve to put yourself first. And it’s not like you have to leave them forever, just until you find better strategies for handling them.
Remove yourself from those toxic people and your energy will rebuild itself.
And Of Course: To Stop Feeling Tired, Start Meditating
As a meditation teacher, I personally use meditation for energy boosts every day. It stops me feeling tired and drained and provides a reliable pic-me-up.
Meditations stops us feeling tired because it helps us use energy effectively. It does this by stopping unhelpful thoughts.
Let’s say you’re tidying the house. You’re busy vacuuming and cleaning, but a million unrelated thoughts are flowing through your mind at the same time. You’re thinking about work, about what you have to do next and many other concerns. None of these thoughts help you to clean the house, but you’re spending energy on them anyway.
Not only do you waste energy on thoughts, but while your mind is distracted you are less efficient at completing your job of cleaning the house. Because you’re distracted, you’re constantly stopping your work to do other, unimportant unrelated things. Perhaps you’re checking your cell phone or your emails. Whatever it is you’re doing, it isn’t helping you complete your job but you’re still wasting energy on it.
Try these 4 meditations For Energy
1. Mindfulness prevents fatigue and boosts energy
Mindfulness helps you to conserve your energy by allowing you to focus on one thing at a time. If you’re cleaning, you’re cleaning (rather than cleaning while thinking while checking your phone and so on).
By learning to meditate we make sure our energy is being spent on actually achieving the thing you’re doing. Though this might seem small, it adds up. Throughout a whole day, the benefits of mindfulness for energy amount to quite a lot of both time and energy being saved.
I highly recommend that you read my guide to mindfulness meditation as this is one of the best ways to maximise the way you use the energy you have.
2. Clearing the chakras stop us feeling tired
Chakras are the energy centres in the body.
Your energy passes up through your body, through the seven chakras.
The “clearer” your chakras are the more easily your energy can flow through your body.
But all host of factors prevent your chakras from being clear.
Injuries, trauma, stress, and emotions can all affect the flow of energy through your chakras. This slows the creation and transmission of energy, making us tired inside and out. That’s one reason why Chakra Clearing Meditation is one of the best meditations for energy.
3. Mind-Body Techniques help us use energy effectively
Another highly powerful way to use meditation for energy is to heighten your mind body connection.
When your mind and body are not one (when they are working against each other) you use twice the amount of energy.
For instance, let’s say that I’m siting here typing this article right now, and that is a physical activity. But in my mind I’m thinking about what I’d like for dinner and all the chores I have to do later. In this instance my energy is being split. Half my energy is going on what I’m actually doing, the other half on thoughts. This wastes a lot of energy.
It would be a lot more practical if I could make my mental energy and physical energy to achieve the one thing I’m actually trying to achieve.
In order to create oneness between mind and body, and to heighten your mind body connection, you can use a body scan meditation. This makes mind and body one, and thereby ensures that your energy is being used practically.
Try using some of the above techniques for a few days this week. Compare how you feel on those days compared to how you normally feel. Let me know if you feel a difference (you will).
