Wake Up! Energize with Natural Energy Boosters

| 7/14/2010 4:42:11 PM

It’s easy to get run down. We spend too much time working or running errands and not enough time sleeping, getting adequate exercise and nutrition or giving proper attention to our emotional and mental needs. Most people feel tired on a day-to-day basis, and when they do they reach for a can of soda or cup of coffee. While caffeine does provide a temporary boost of energy, it doesn’t address the underlying problems and can leave you feeling more tired than before.

If you’re feeling fatigued, restore your energy supply with one of these natural energy boosters. From herbs and supplements to aromatherapy, these natural remedies will energize your mind and body, leaving you more alert and energized to meet your day.


Citrus scents: Feeling down? The smell of citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges and grapefruits will lift your spirits and clear your mind. Citrus scents boost production of serotonin, a hormone that makes us feel happy, while reducing levels of norepinephrine, a stress hormone. Start your day with naturally scented citrus shampoos and body washes. If you need a pick-me-up at work, add a drop of lemon essential oil to a cotton ball or handkerchief.

Peppermint: The smell of peppermint stimulates the mind, making you feel more alert and focused. Drink a cup of peppermint tea or sniff a product that uses peppermint essential oil when you need to think clearly.
