Are you suffering from lack of energy? Do you want to have more energy? Want to know the secret to having more energy? Then keep reading!
If you want more energy, you have to move more. Simple.
Now I’m sure you’re rolling your eyes right about now but the more you move, the more energy you will have.
Action creates action.
Here’s the challenge….a lot of people simply don’t have the energy to fit in their workout at the end of a busy day. BUT that can all change by simply working out. (Insert eye roll here again.)
But there is science behind this.
When you exercise your body rises up to meet the challenge for more energy by becoming stronger. This happens on a cellular level with tiny organs called mitochondria. They are the body’s power plants that produce energy.
Now, most of our energy comes from food as well (this is why we don’t eat crappy food) but the more mitochondria you have, the more energy your body produces. And how do we make more mitochondria? Through regular exercise!
I know it may seem paradoxical that what makes us tired (exercise) gives us energy but it does! Exercise also crease more energy by:
- increasing muscle mass
- increasing our heart’s pumping volume
- reducing body fat
- lower bad cholesterol
- improving blood sugar regulation
- improving circulation
- boosting mood & mental capacity
So basically, the more you exercise the better you feel and so you want to move more!!! How cool is that.
Where does one start? How about just going for a walk? It doesn’t have to be that long, say 15 minutes. But if you just et up and start to walk, you’ll feel better. And you’ll want to do that again and again.
Stick to the KISS (keep is simple silly) method when starting out. That way you won’t get overwhelmed.
Action creates action. The more you move, the more you will want to move.
So get up, right now and move that body!
You’ll thank me for it.
