Are there times when your energy drops and you feel drained and empty? 

Do you struggle to get up and going? If you feel like this, then you are running on a low reserve and it is difficult to keep up with your daily tasks. 

Today I want to discuss some reasons why you may experience low energy levels and also some ideas helping you to protect and also increase your energy levels. 

Here are 5 energy-robbing habits you can change today: 

You’re eating too much sugar
Be sure to replace refined carbs with whole grain varieties for a longer-lasting energy boost. The solution is to avoid simple carbs and sugar and replace it with whole foods with a low glycemic impact. This will help you to stay alert and maintain your energy levels far longer.

You are sitting too much 
Daily prolonged sitting is linked to more than 30 chronic diseases and conditions. Regular standing up and moving for even a few minutes increases the oxygen in your brain which increases alertness. 

Draining Environment
Be aware of the fact that unhealthy and negative people can drain energy from you because of their thought pattern and low energies. What you can do is to refuse to be drawn into negative conversations. Distance yourself from negativity.

Prolonged Stress
Ongoing stress causes fatigue and can crash your energy levels. If stress keeps you anxious, tense and worried, consider trying meditation. By spending even 10 minutes a day in meditation can help you to restore your balance and increase your energy levels. 

Exercising too hard
Excessive and wrong training can lead to chronic fatigue and an increase in illness and infections. Try a more conscious approach to keep your body healthy and energetic. I prefer Qigong and Taoist practices I learned from Master Mantak Chia. His Universal Healing Tao System has a multitude of benefits and is the best alternative for our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing in our modern times. 

Here are some few benefits of QiGong:

  • Qigong loosens the muscles and builds power
  • Qigong strengthens the organs and nervous system 
  • Qigong improves the cardio-pulmonary function
  • Qigong eases stress and balances emotions
  • Qigong increases Energy and Vitality and many more….

In his latest short video, Master Mantak Chia explains in very simple terms the function of CHI in your body, and easy ways to be aware and increase energy in your body.
