1. Stretch! Stretching pumps oxygen to the brain, loosens your muscles and gives you an immediate burst of energy. 2. Add some mung beans to your plate! Trinny and Susannah swear by their energy-bootsing properties. 3. Aim for regular, quality sleep. 4. Drink up! Fact: low energy often stems from dehydration, so be sure to guzzle plenty of water! 5. Wear brighter colours. 6. Eat foods rich in iron, such as legumes (chickpeas, lentils), red meat, and green, leafy vegetables. Choose an iron-fortified breakfast cereal, and consume a glass of orange juice with your meal – vitamin C is believed to assist your body’s ability to absorb iron. 7. Throw your head back and laugh. 8. Eat smaller, more frequent meals. (Think six mini meals, as opposed to three large meals, which can leave you feeling sluggish!) 9. Engage in activities which excite you. Organise a lunch date with your best friend, plan to write a novel, buy something completely inappropriate.. 10. Move more! One of my favourite things to do when I’m feeling less-than-perky is to perform a series of star jumps, or to dance as badly, stupidly and quickly as I can for three minutes – yes, it makes me feel like a moron, but it re-juvinates! 11. Turn up the music. 12. Soak up some sunshine! A regular dose of sunlight helps keep energy levels at their peak (that would be the Vitamin D!), and is thought to boost happiness levels, too. 13.Challenge yourself. 14. Enjoy (occasionally!) an energy drink. 15. Keep a positive outlook.
