Eat a Good Breakfast

The nutrition from the food we eat is converted into energy. When you skip breakfast, you're upping your bets that you'll be able to make up for the lack of energy during the day. Shake Up Your Wake Up explains how breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there are too many people who don’t take it as seriously as they need to.  Me included. I rarely eat breakfast because I’m always in a rush.  You might not have the biggest appetite in the morning, but you should still make a point of eating something, such as a granola bar or a piece of toast with nut butter. You don't want to force yourself to wait until lunch to kick up an appetite. If you have trouble making time for breakfast, get up earlier or heat up leftovers from the previous evening. You might also consider making breakfasts in advance that you can freeze and easily reheat. When your hunger is satisfied after a long night's rest, you can make your days much more productive.
Apply Essential Oils
Smell is a sense that is too often overlooked as a powerful means of providing energy. Look for essential oils that appeal to you. doTERRA discusses how the aromatic use of essential oils such as mint and citrus can have an immediate effect on our mood. When you smell something pleasurable, like lavender, you can take your mind to a place of tranquility and comfort.  My favorite essential oils are lemongrass and peppermint.  Lemongrass always puts me in a good mood because it smells like lemon cake and I like to keep peppermint oil on my scalp because the cooling sensation helps with itchiness.  To keep things exciting, try to mix up the oils you use. Not only can aromatic use of essential oils provide a boost in your energy, but they can also make your skin look better and help reduce anxiousness.

Kickstart Your Brain
It's hard to be low-energy and using your brain at the same time. If you find yourself struggling to stay alert, look for ways to use your brain. This could be doing word puzzles like crosswords or remembering lists of information, such as state capitals. TalkSpace talks about the benefits of having a consistent and rejuvenating morning routine. Instead of glancing at Twitter, or constantly refreshing Instagram, doing something more productive actually helps your mind prepare for the day. Aerobic exercise and meditation are some things you can do to make yourself more enthused throughout the day. You only have one brain, and you want to make the absolute most of it. Seeing yourself as unenergetic can become a self-fulfilling prophecy where you believe that you're doomed to a life of lethargy. These methods can show you just how misguided that kind of thinking is. Your days can be made so much more satisfying by bringing more energy into your life.
