THE RIGHT WAY TO WORK OUT FOR ENERGY

First, the WHY. There are three big reasons exercise – aka moving your body – helps you have more energy:

  1. It helps your body create energy at the cellular level – in the mitochondria of your cells. Exercise can help you create MORE mitochondria … as well as spur them to create even MORE energy. It’s like a 1-2 punch of energy!
  2. It boosts oxygen circulation inside your body, which helps your body use its energy more efficiently.
  3. Your body releases more feel-good hormones when you exercise.

The key to HOW to work out is to listen to your body!

Research shows that when you are feeling blah and tired, it’s best to get up and MOVE at a low to moderate pace for 10-20 minutes.

This could be going for a walk, dancing, playing.

Don’t overthink it… just move!

Then, if you feel like doing more, by all means, have at it.

Or, call it a day and feel proud of yourself for GETTING.IT.DONE.

Research shows that the most important thing is to be CONSISTENT with your workouts. A couple of findings:

  • Doing regular, low-intensity exercise can help boost energy by 20% while cutting fatigue by as much as 65%.
  • On days when people walked MORE total daily steps, they ended the day with MORE energy than on the days when they walked less.

The BEST workout programs actually ADD energy to your days vs. draining your energy.

Make it an amazing day,
