Lack of Energy?  Tips to get through the day and keep energized!

1. Positive Thinking

A positive mindset can help improve your overall feeling of well being and energize your body.

Positive thought does not mean you simply keep your head in the sand and take no notice of life’s less agreeable circumstances. Positive belief just means that you approach ugliness in a more helpful and fruitful way. It is not helpful to relish in the pain and agony of the unknown.  A positive outlook is guaranteed to improve your energy, whereas a negative overall outlook is more likely to wane your energy and burn you out quicker both physically and mentally.

Practice reframing.

Rather than stressing about a travel, for instance, be thankful for the fact that you have the funds for a car and get to spend a few extra moments rocking out to music or the news, accepting that there is absolutely nothing you can do about the traffic.



2. Be Active

Get some physical activity to break up your day.  Psychology expert, Richard Boyatzis, states that there is strapping evidence to recommend that habitual bodily or leisurely activities throughout your day can arouse compassion and creativity in the workplace.

Pursuant to Robert Gotlin, DO, a specialist in sports medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital and Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City, the benefits of physical activity for an improved energy are double: A daily fitness regimen will ignite your body’s energy and mood, both of which contribute to your overall health and well-being.


3. Be Present in the Moment

All too often we as human creatures tend to space out, romanticize and day dream.  It’s a great way to pass the time.  However, when you are at work or driving the kids around to their various activities, or trying to learn something at school, it is easy to fall victim to disassociating our minds from the present moment.  Staying present is the mindful practice of participating in the activities that are in front of your face.

Being Intentional

Mindfully and intentionally staying present is challenging when you are already overwhelmed or feel rundown.  When we permit ourselves to day dream, or veer off track from our originally intended task, the body also goes into auto-pilot.  When you are being intentional, that means you are mindfully engaging your system.  If you are not engaging your system (body and brain) you run the risk of putting it into “rest mode” which quickly drains your energy and causes instant feelings of tiredness.

Engage with others intentionally.  Be mindful that your mind may be veering off from the conversation and mindfully bring your energy back into the room.  Make it a point to notice the colors in the room.  The sounds around you.  The sights and what others are trying to communicate to you.  This will engage your neurotransmitters and build greater fibers within the brain which in turn stimulate energy in the mind and body.

Your Body Wants to Keep Moving

Keep Moving

Keep moving and keep your health!

Sitting Will Kill You!

As a matter of fact, studies have showed that lack of keeping your body moving will actually diminish your lifespan!  Sedentary lifestyles to a chiropractor are considered self-destructive behavior.  So stop acting out and start stepping out!  Chiropractors will appreciate it!

Your Body is Amazing!

Your body wants to show you what it can do, but moving it is the only way to ensure its ability to lower your heart rate and blood pressure and to improve joint health and mental function.  Dr. Justin Davis asks “Did you know that the human heart beats around 100,000 times per day?”!  But when you live a less active lifestyle, your heart is not operating at its best and sedentary function settles the organs and blood cells, diminishing the flushing out of cholesterol and other fatty tissues that can build up and cause all sorts of destructive issues. This 97223 chiropractor often chats with patient about moving more.

Furthermore, it takes the human body 12 hours to completely digest a meal.  When you keep your body moving it aides in digestion so that waste is not left behind to build up and cause additional prolonged digestive and function issues.

Additional benefits of physical activity approved by chiropractors are:

  • Improved joint health
  • Lower resting heart rate
  • Improved immune function
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved mental function
  • Increased muscular strength and endurance
  • Better control of body fat
  • Higher quality of sleep

When you don’t keep your body moving:

***Not chiropractor recommended

  • Loss of bone density
  • Stiffening of joints
  • Weakening of muscles
  • Weakening of the heart and lungs
  • Degeneration of the cellular energy systems

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that physical inactivity constitutes the fourth leading cause of death globally, causing an estimated 3.2 million deaths globally.  So stop killing yourself!  Get up, get moving, take a walk through a local park, walk the dog, go for hike, swim in the river, ride a bicycle, or do 20 minutes of chiropractor recommended yoga in the comfort of your home.

Dr. Justin Davis encourages all patients of all ages and body types to keep your body moving!  Lower your heart rate and blood pressure, and improve joint health and mental function with increasing your average steps per day, moving your muscles in your arms and stretching the body more often throughout the day.
