3 Steps to Go from Exhausted to Energized

Bottom Line:
If you’re coming out of the holidays feeling a little sluggish and low on energy in [your city / town], you’re
not alone!
Any changes to your regular sleep and exercise routine can impact your energy levels and leave your
body struggling just a bit to keep up without that seemingly necessary caffeine fix.
Not to worry! As we head into the new year, we’ve prepared a list of some simple steps you can take to
enjoy a healthier, happier, and less exhausted, more energized 2022!

Why it Matters:
When you’re feeling exhausted, you might notice some obvious aches and pains.
However, what you might not so easily notice is the impact that exhaustion is having on your brain and
immune system function.
Those are just a couple of the reasons taking proactive steps to boost your energy is so important for
your overall health and wellness.

Without further ado, here are our top 3 go-to strategies to help get you from exhausted to energized….
1. Strive for Daily Exercise. Yes, exercising when you feel exhausted might seem like the quickest
route to being more tired, but the opposite is true! Exercise can actually increase your energy
levels and brain activity and may even help support your immune system function.
2. Set Your Sleep Schedule. Your body runs on daily cycles called circadian rhythms, and these
24-hour cycles are part of your internal clock. Prioritizing your sleep and going to bed and getting
up around the same time each day helps maintain those cycles.
3. Eat Right. Keeping your blood sugar balanced is key to supporting your overall energy levels.
Sugary foods can provide a quick spike in energy… but very quickly leave you feeling wiped out.
Eating more whole foods and reducing your sugar intake can help keep your energy levels more
consistent and balanced throughout the day.

Next Steps:
Taking proactive steps to boost your energy levels will positively impact both your body and your mood.
If you can’t tackle all of them at once, we recommend you start by getting some exercise and moving your
body. Tomorrow, take the next step, and then the next!
And if you’re near [your city / town] and you’ve been living with some aches and pains that are impacting
your ability to exercise or sleep, be sure to schedule a visit with us today.
We’ll work side by side to create a wellness routine that can help you move better and feel less
exhausted and more energized so you can enjoy a happy new year ahead!
