There are many good suggestions here. For me, the number one thing is a good night’s sleep. When I don’t get enough rest (and it happens more than it should) I start to drag a little bit the next day around mid-afternoon. But when I do, I’m good to go. As others have said, proper nutrition is also very important. As far as energy supplements, I’m not a fan. But if you need a quick jolt, a little caffeine will never hurt. Good luck Bonnie!
There were some good suggestions in this thread as well.
You’ve received excellent advice so far.
For me, small low glycemic meals every couple of hours helps me maintain blood sugar and energy levels on the nutrition side.
One thing that hasn’t been discussed yet is what you’re doing for mental / emotional restoration. Your brain needs a break. Meditation or deep breathing can do wonders for stress and when that’s better under control we can feel more energetic. That’s a long term strategy. A good short term strategy is that I sit in my car for 2-5 minutes before entering the gym and I think about my purpose, the gifts I have to give to the world, that I’m lucky to be in this moment, and that I will give this class or this client everything I’ve got.
