One of the BEST ways to get more fast energy –– especially if you sit a lot for work like I do –– is to get up and MOVE!
It’s true: Spending a little energy can actually help your body create MORE of it.
Even something as simple as going for a short walk around your office - or in my case, the gym...
Getting up and moving around helps in 3 ways:
First, it helps your body create energy at the cellular level – actually in the mitochondria of your cells.
Exercise can help your cells create MORE energy immediately… and regular exercise can actually create MORE mitochondria.
Second, moving your body boosts oxygen circulation, which helps your body use its energy more efficiently.
And third, your body releases more feel-good hormones when you exercise, which helps to boost your mood and your focus!
The key to HOW to work out is to listen to your body!
This does NOT have to be a high-intensity session – the idea is to just move at a low to moderate pace for 10-20 minutes. It could even be throwing the ball for your dog or playing whatever ridiculous game your kids are into.
Right now - the floor is lava is hot in my house.
The cool thing is that once you get moving - once you get up from your cozy chair, you often will WANT to do something more!
But that is not necessarily the goal of this movement session – the goal is to just bring you just a little shot of energy to perk you up for the rest of your day.
