Do you jump out of bed every morning full of energy and ready to start the day with excitement? If so, great! Keep doing whatever you are doing because it’s working beautifully for you. But if you’re like the majority of people, the answer is no. You may press the snooze button 10 times, or you may drag yourself out of bed and immediately go to the coffee pot to pour yourself a cup of joe (which you have on an automatic timer before your alarm goes off, of course.) If it’s a struggle for you to have enough energy to get up every morning, and keep it throughout the day, then keep reading to learn 3 ways to increase your energy so you don’t have to struggle anymore.
3 Ways to Increase Your Energy: Drink More Water
Keeping your body hydrated is the easiest thing you can do each day to increase your energy. Your body is comprised of millions of cells that are duplicating and replenishing themselves every second of every day. These cells need to be properly hydrated in order for you to feel your best and to have an abundance of energy. Tip: Aim to drink 1/2 of your body weight, in ounces, of purified water every day. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drinking 75 ounces of water every day will help keep you hydrated and energized.
3 Ways to Increase Your Energy: Eat Clean
Our definition of eating clean is a simple one: eat more whole foods and less processed junk. Whole foods are fresh vegetables and fruits, healthy fats like raw organic oils, nuts, and seeds, lean proteins, whole grains, and superfoods. The more you add fresh whole foods to your diet, the more energy you’ll have to help get you through the day. Tip: Eating leafy green vegetables with each meal gives you a huge energy boost! Try making a green smoothie, or stopping by and having one of our superfood smoothies, to give you the energy boost you need.
3 Ways to Increase Your Energy: Move Your Body

Simple movements like a 20 minute walk in the morning, or on your lunchtime break, will do wonders for your body. Tip: With the warm weather upon us, now is a great chance to get outdoors and move your body!
