Have you ever felt low on energy during the daytime? Usually it’s the middle of the day where your lack of energy makes it difficult to get things done.
You may want to grab for that extra cup of coffee but there are ways to get energy naturally instead.
I used to drink coffee well into the afternoon and it never really helped to boost my energy. I started using natural things for energy and my life has really changed.
I rarely, if ever, get tired in the afternoon these days. For that I am grateful!
Here are ten natural ways to boost your energy that you can start incorporating into your life!
1 – Take Quality Supplements to Keep Energy Levels High
Even if you eat a healthy diet, it’s a challenge to get all the needed nutrients. Taking a daily supplement can make a different. I recommend doTERRA Daily Nutrient Pack or Mito2Max. The Daily Nutrient Pack contains 22 essential vitamins and minerals to support normal growth, function, and maintenance of cells and much more!
2 – Do Your Afternoon Exercise
Get your workout done in the mid-afternoon when you need an energy boost. It can feel like a Catch 22, right? You feel exhausted and can’t even think about exercise!
But the fact is that exercise can help increase productivity, as well as reduce stress and anxiety. You’ll feel more energized afterwards!
3 – Stretch and Breathe for Increased Energy
I used to think deep breathing was silly. But then I experienced the benefits of increased energy.
When you breath deep from your diaphram, you can actually help get your blood flowing. That coupled with stretching can help reenergize your muscles and your mind.
4 – Rejuvenate with Essential Oils
I love using essential oils to help uplift my mood. You can use any of the citrus essential oils in a diffuser or invigorate your senses with Frankinsense, Peppermint, or Rosemary.
5 – Get Outdoors
Sometimes I just have to get outside! It’s my body telling me to go breathe some fresh air.
Even 15 or 20 minutes can help change your energy levels. You’ll also be getting the sun exposure you need for natural vitamin D.
6 – Eat Smaller Meals more Frequently
Sometimes if I am out and haven’t eaten in a couple of hours, my energy just leaves my body.
I get so tired and become cranky! Has that ever happened to you? For me the solution is simple. Eat small meals frequently throughout the day.
If I plan to be out for a few hours, I bring healthy snacks with me. I highly recommend it. It can help keep your energy levels where they need to be.
I find that eating just 3 larger meals per day keeps me quite lethargic and no fun to be around! I like to eat about 6 times a day in small portions.
7 – Get an Aromatouch Essential Oil
The invigorating effects of the AromaTouch Technique essential oil application can help you re-center and reduce stress. Make sure to hydrate before and after.
8 – Drink Your Water to Boost Energy
Staying hydrated is important since your body depends on water to survive. Don’t be fooled in the cooler weather thinking you don’t need it.
Sugary drink and coffee can contribute to dehydrating you so those are not good choices.
9 – Get a Restful Night of Sleep
Sleep is what our body to heal and rejuvenate. When you don’t get enough of it, your energy levels can definitely decrease the next day. Plus you just feel like crap.
I love to diffuse essential oils to help me get a restful sleep. Seven to nine hours is the recommended amount of sleep for adult.

10 – Take a Power Nap
If you are still struggling with ways to increase energy naturally, take a power nap! Ten to twenty minutes is all you need. Usually, any more than that will mess up your nighttime sleep pattern.
I hope you enjoyed these ten natural remedies to increase energy. I dislike feeling lethargic and implementing these tips really helps.
Some of the essential oils for energy are Peppermint, Wild Orange, Rosemary, InTune®, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Citrus Bliss®, and Elevation.
