The energetic YOU..

Look at the smiley sticks below. Do you think you need one of those to make your face become a smiley face? Or you just need your inner feeling to be happy so you can put a big smile on your face automatically and effortlessly? I prefer the second option. When you feel happy inside, it will come out and people will notice it. Furthermore, that big smile of yours can also make others happy too. Always remember that smiling face is contagious, in a good way of course=)

The same applies to your energy. If you feel energetic, you will always feel that the world is easy on you and you can always feel that you have no burden. So, what does it take to make yourself an energetic person? Here are some of the things that you can do. Let me see, I like point number 2 and 5. Music can really uplift your mood and boost up to the higher level..yay..let's sing along people...

Eight Tips for Feeling More Energetic.

1. Exerciseeven a quick ten-minute walk will increase your energy and boost your mood. This really works! Try it!

2. Listen to lively music.

3. Get enough sleep. If the alarm blasts you out of a sound sleep every morning, you’re not getting enough—and it matters. (Here are some tips for getting good sleep.)

4. For some people, taking a 10-30 minute nap is a big help. I can’t nap, myself, but my father has been known to take three naps in one day.

5. Act energetic. Research shows that when people move faster, their metabolism speeds up. Also, because the way we act influences the way we feel (to an almost uncanny degree), by acting energetic you'll make you feel more energetic.

6. Talk to friends. I’ve noticed that if I’m feeling low, and then run into a friend on the street, I walk away feeling much more energetic. Reach out if you need a boost. This is true for introverts and extroverts alike.

7. Get something done. Crossing a nagging chore off your to-do list provides a big rush of energy. For a huge surge, clean out a closet. You’ll be amazed at how great you feel afterward.

8. Do NOT use food. It’s tempting to reach for a carton of ice cream when you’re feeling listless, but in the end, all those extra calories will just drag you down. In general, be wary of the urge to treat yourself when you're feeling low.
