TOP FIVE VITALITY TIPS TO GET YOU ENERGIZED
(from SHAPE by Jennifer Matlack)


1... EAT HEALTHY AND OFTEN.It's the most obvious way to get pumped up. But just eating anything is not enough. You need to eat well, says Jacob Teitelbaum MD , the Annapolis, Md based author From Fatigue to Fantastic. For sustained energy levels, he suggests eating smaller, more frequent meals.(i.e. six meals is approximately 300-450 caloires each), comprising 50 percent complex carbohydrates, 30 percent protein and 20 percent fat.

2... DON'T SIT STILL A daily 30 minute blast of moderate to high intensity cardio vascular exercise is essential for sustained energy levels, but even two to 10 minutes brisk movement has a remarkably energizing effect, says Robert E. Thayer, Ph.D of Long Beach, Ca.author of Calm Energy: How People Regulate Mood with Food and ExerciseAlthough brief activity probably won't spike endorphin levels, Thayer's research has shown it will increase your heart rate and keep you feeling revved up to two hous.

MEDITATING IS ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO OFFSET STRESS , A HUGE FACTOR IN FATIGUE.

3... TURN DOWN YOUR INNER VOLUME. Meditating is one of thebest ways to offset stress, a huge factor in fatigue, says Carlsbad Calif. based David Simon, MD, author fo the book Vital Energy: The 7 Keys to Invigorate Body, Mind and SoulSimon suggests a daily practice of meditation that shifts a daily practice of meditation that shifts focus from the negative voices in your head.("I feel overwhelmed and helpless") to a mantra ("I have power over my life"), a soothing sound (that of the ocean or wind in the tress) or your breath.

4... GO ON A TECHNOLOGY AND / OR NEWS "FAST".Sitting at a computer all day can lead to "Technodespair", a term coined by Los Angeles psychiatrist Judith Orloff, MD. to describe the fatigue or depression that can set in after even briefly being around machines, including computer and phones. "Refuel by going outside for an invigorating walk", says Orloff. A news fast - avoiding news papers, the Internet and TV - also can give you needed break from draining, disheartening images and information.

5... CONSIDER THE GLASS HALF - FULL."We rarely acknowledge the progress we've made", says Bill Ford,the Surrey England based author of High Energy Habits: The Busy Person's Guide to More EnergyWithout Diets or ExerciseBut stopping to look at where you were and how far you've come is energizing. So pat yourself on the back and feel the charge!
