What Causes Low Energy Levels?
Most importantly there are three things that will cause low energy levels:
- Eating Food
What you do for a living also matters. When you’re involved in physical work you need more energy and you should consume more nutrients.
When there is less physical work involved, then less energy and more physical exercise are required.
What you eat, when you eat, how much you eat, how often you eat, how much quantity and quality of food you eat also matters.
When you eat right at the correct time then everything goes right.
But when you eat the wrong foods at the wrong time, everything from digestion to absorption takes time and sometimes it can affect the gut health.
This video will help you in making the right eating habits. (It’s very important because you are what you eat)
When you live in a place where everyone around you eats right and healthily, after some time you also develop the same eating habits.
It’s impossible to find that environment because everywhere we find people eating junk food and midnight biryanis.
But we have a choice of going to a nearby Ashram and participate in volunteering.
Through this, we can learn about the essence of eating the right food, and also at the same time we can live with nature.
12 Practical Tips To Stay Energetic All The Time
No one can ever stay energetic without sleep. Without charging even a phone becomes dead. Sleep is like charging our mind, body, and soul where our physical and mental growth occurs.
We need to take care of our sleep. By doing these three things we can have a quality of sleep.
- Early Sleeping
- Fixed Sleep Schedule
- No Screens
To get up early we need to sleep early. The more early you sleep, the less you feel lethargic and tired and you can wake up without any alarm.
Fixed Sleep Schedule
Sleep at 9 PM and Wake up at 5 AM. This is the ideal time for a quality and deep sleep. Late-night sleep must be avoided because the more late you sleep the more lethargic you feel.
Try to avoid electronic screens before you sleep because they delay the sleep hormone.
2: Get Some Sunlight
Vitamin D is crucial for your bones and health. It improves your strength, immunity, and mood.
We feel active and energetic and it improves mental health.
So get some sunlight in the morning to improve your overall health.
3: Drink Water
Half of the problems will be eliminated from our bodies, if we just drink clean lukewarm water every day.
If you find it hard to drink 3-4 litres then consume fruits or vegetables in the form of fluids.
Water not only eliminates our thirst but also enhances gut health.
4: Eat 6 Meals

Moving your body, Running, Workout is a must to make your body fit and avoid obesity.
An intense workout of just 10 minutes is enough a day to keep your body in shape.
6: Avoid Screens

This will decrease your quality of sleep and cause tiredness.
Just avoid mobile screens for about 2 hours before you sleep and 2 hours after you wake up.
7: Cold Showers
As soon as cold water touches your body, you become alert, circulation of blood increases, you awake, and all tiredness is avoided.

30 Second Rule
Shower with cold water for 30 seconds and then you can turn to lukewarm water and just before you finish your bath take again 30 seconds of cold shower bath.
8: Take High-Calorie Foods
Many of us eat the same quantity of food that we eat in 5th standards. This is why the energy we get is small and we are unable to stay energetic.
High-calorie foods are those that provide calories with less eating.
Example: Oats, Nuts, Almond, Kaju, Chia Seeds, Salmon, Meat, Egg, etc are some of the High-Calorie Foods
9: Get a Health Checkup
