People always tell me I have a lot of energy.
And that it is contagious – that I give them energy.
Now, first of all, I am not always energized but I suppose I’m able to generate more energy than most people.
Second, it is my mission to enthuse and inspire people to grow and never be small again. Grow as a person and with their business. You cannot inspire people if you are not able to generate energy and transmit that to other. So yes, I suppose my energy might sometimes be contagious 🙂
Now how do I do that?
Let me just give you 4 things I do in the morning and 1 during the day.
1. When the alarm clock goes off – get up
I used to love the snooze button on my alarm clock. Nothing better than being able to snooze for 10 more minutes in my warm and cosy bed. However, this way you tell your brain your alarm clock is not important and that it should not give it a lot of attention. And this is a dead end street.
So when the alarm clock goes off – I immediately jump out of bed.
2. Drink water with lemon
Once out of bed I drink a huge glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon in it. Water is good for you, you know that. You should drink lots of it during the day. Starting the day with a huge glass of lemon water immediately gives you an energy boost. Lemon is good for you too. Here’s an article about that. Hope it inspires you to leave the coffee behind and focus on lemon water. https://draxe.com/benefits-of-lemon-water/
3. Work out
Go out for a brisk walk, or a run. Do some work-out. Get that heart pumping. Even if you only have 15 minutes in the morning, it will give you that energy boost you’ve been craving for. Promised.
4. Love energy
Do you have a partner, kids, pets?… Cuddle and hug them. It’s good for your health, reduces stress and the love you get back … ooh such an energy boost.

If during the day, you feel a little energy drip… breath in and breath out – deeply.
Shallow breathing (chest breathing) prevents the body from getting enough oxygen. What you need to do is to focus on diaphragmatic breathing. This is when your stomach expands outward, while the lower ribs expand sideways, which causes the diaphragm to contract. Take your time. Do it slowly. I promise you. This will help reduce stress and increase your energy level.
