#1: Start the day with movement

Start your day by doing some exercises. You don't have to do a full workout. You can do yoga, take a walk outside, do some pushups or squats, or anything that gets your blood flowing and heart pumping.

Feeling energized has to be generated. Exercising, no matter how short, is one of the best ways to generate it.

More oxygen equals more energy.

The Wim Hof breathing method:

#4: Stay hydrated

Not drinking enough water leads to lower energy production for the body and brain, leaving you to feel foggy and fatigued. 

Always drink right after waking up and try to always have a water bottle next to you, so you'll remember to drink when you feel sluggish.

If you need a quick energy boost, do some squats throughout the day. 

It's through movement that we generate more energy.

By doing a few squats, your muscles get activated, the heart starts pumping, and blood is flowing through your body.
