The Secret to All-Day Energy


Fresh flowers, birds chirping and warmer weather: There’s so much to love about spring! All the beauty that comes along with the season may make you want to go hiking, plan a picnic or even start a spring cleaning project.

The only thing standing in your way? Finding the energy to do it all.

If you, (like so many of us!), have noticed a drop in your energy levels the past year — whether from feeling anxious or overwhelmed from the pandemic, or even bored from a lack of usual activity, here are some of our favorite ways to kickstart your energy so you can get the most out of this glorious season.

  • Start your day with a stretch. Whether it’s just bending down and touching your toes, or doing a quick morning yoga flow (we like this one on YouTube), beginning your day with movement is a sure-fire way to jumpstart your energy levels.


  • When in doubt, drink more water. Before you pour another cup o’ Joe, think about sipping some water instead. That’s because dehydration is one of the main reasons our energy levels drop — and sometimes we don’t realize we’re dehydrated until it’s too late. (Hint: If you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already becoming dehydrated.)


  • Go on a lunch break “walk and talk.” Stress can be a major energy zapper, but talking to your best friend can help take away some of that tension. Plan a call during your lunch break, and take a walk while you chat (exercise is another way to boost your energy!).


  • Eat your way to more energy. What you munch on throughout the day can have a big impact on your energy levels. Try and skip sugary treats and refined grains, which spike your blood sugar, then send it crashing. Instead, choose foods like whole grains, nuts, fruit, and veggies for sustained energy.

Most of us are feeling more excited and optimistic about the future compared to a year ago. Take time to work on restoring your energy so you can make the most out of this wonderful season.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Here’s how:
