In this article, I’d like to share with you few practical tips on how to get energy when you are tired.
Tiredness is something that we all face once in a while, it is human to feel tired, and fatigued.
We became subjugated to many things happening during the day, and many demands that we have to fulfill, causing stress easily.
Without talking about the processed food that we put in our bodies, the easy accessibility to many things in a blink of an eye, everything is happening in a fast way, we’re completely distracted with social media and the over-use of the phone, all of that contributing to exhaustion and tiredness.

Asking a question like “how to get energy when I’m tired” is a short sighted question.
You can do things for a while to get pumped up, but if you don’t remain on that longer, you’ll go back easily to your default state.
The core change needs to occur in your lifestyle. From the tiny habits that you do in a daily basis, to the people that you hang out with, to the information that you consume daily, even the way how you see life impacts your level of energy as known as mental health.
In this article, I’m not going to dive into the tips of getting rid of tiredness, you can find that in thousands of blog posts online, but I’m going to talk about some strategies that helped me personally to have more energy during the day, and the systems that I use to get out of a mental rut when it arises.
Fix Your Mental Energy First
Everything starts with the thing between your ears which is your brain.
I’m a big believer that if your brain is a mess, meaning if you’re angry most of the time, you’re sensitive to others and how they treat you, you see life with a distorted way, regardless of what you practice to energize yourself, nothing will happen.
So, the key here is to prepare the soil before you plant new seeds. Get rid from all the mind weeds, and the heavy weights from your shoulders, get your back up, so you can see things clearly, and healthfully.
Here are some suggestions to consider applying to twist everything around, and get your mental energy back to life:
- First and eminent step: get rid from the news. Really it’s a game changer.
- If you’re a friend with a downer or someone whom you have conflict with most of the time, someone who is egotistical, kindly get rid of him or her. (I got rid from a ex-friend that I had relationship with for about 16 years, and I won’t regret it.)
- Consume educational and constructive content. It really helps to shape your mind, and see things with a lot broader angles.
- Look for people who are really caring, and forgiving. Someone who is going to bring peace, and joy in your life not stress, or misery.
- Learn new skills, and engage yourself in new activities.
By the way, all those tips turned me from an unhappy, and a victim person, to someone who tries to bring positive energy to my entourage the best of my capabilities, and accepting the negatives of life and live with them instead of fighting them.
When you get that right in the first place, it’s going to be a lot easier to implement all the other things to recalibrate your energy and beat tiredness.
So, now let’s get into some of the natural ways that I think are so essential to level up your energy so you can be able to do many things throughout the day.
Build The Habit Of Sleeping and Wake Up Earlier
The most common thing you’ll find in all the posts about the same topic is sleeping beside many other things like exercising eating fresh and healthy foods.
But one things that many authors don’t bring, and underline, is the fact that sleep is a habit, and we should look at it from this angle to make it work.
So, the question then:
How to make sleeping ealier as a habit?
The first thing is to have a big reason why you’re doing so. Trust me, it won’t work if you don’t nail that down first.
It’s going to be a lot eaiser to slip off, and give yourself excuses when you don’t feel like it, or simply because you’re bored with it.
Just for the fact you want to get up early to have sense of control of your day, and do hard things first might be your personal why.
The buttom line is to come up with something that is very important to you to go to bed earlier no matter what.
Another tip that I have for you, is make sure you track your progress.
There’s a great strategy that is called “don’t break the chain”, and that what you should aim for, and this must be visual to reminder yourself by the effort that you’ve invested so far to get where you’re at currently.
If you’re struggling with falling asleep, or you can’t get to bed easily for some reason, check out the video below:
Get Yourself To Exercise
A really strong way to boost your energy is simply to move your body a bit throughout the day.
This modern lifestyle invokes us to set for hours and hours contributing majorily to being tired and lazy, and of course because it’s too comfortable, we forget about exercising, and moving our body.
Something that I do and I preach all the time, is to start with small things that dosen’t require any grandiose effort like going to the gym, or running.
What I mean is simply to start with simple exercises, some easy to-do stretchs for 5 minutes for example, or to walk while listenning to your favorite podcast in your neighberhood.
Multiple studies have shown the positive effect of moving your body on your mood, and the release of a chemical called endorphine that helps to reduce stress, and the perception of pain.
Drink Enough Water
We all know that water is life. Without it life can not exist. Yes, we all drink it, but do you do it in a sufficient amount?
The reality is most of us don’t drink enough water thourghout the day.
In avreage we need to drink between 2.7 to 3.7 litres a day! The truth is even me I don’t drink that amount.
One little trick to start drinking a lot water is simply to put in front of you a bottle of water since most of our time goes to setting in front of the computer, or setting in the desk working.
Or before you go to bed, fill the bottle with water, and put it on the bedside, so that after you wake up, it will be the first thing that you will pick up.
There are thousands of tips regarding boosting your energy out there, I brought up just few of these things, because none of that will work if you don’t get your mind in order.
Remember your brain is the catalyst of energy. If you take care of it, by the ideas that I outlined above at the top, you will have appetiate to take action, which is the main door of applying the tips.
