Get More Energy Naturally
Does that sound like something you would like to do: get more energy naturally? And to feel alert, focused, ready to accomplish all that you want each day. Is your reality one that looks like this?
Or are you dragging through the day, don’t have the energy levels you need to get a workout in every day or even every other day? Hard to get through the evening with the kids after a long day at the office? Do you feel like most days your life is spinning out of control and you would like to slow it down and get a better plan together?
We know the obesity rate in the U.S. is out of control. Many people will say that their lifestyles are a huge part of the problem. We are busy. Very busy. We eat on the run and many times they are not good food choices. Not only are those food choices bad for our weight and our health overall, they are hurting our energy levels as well.
Energy For Workout
If you don’t have the natural energy to do some form of exercise, even walk for 20 minutes every day, you can’t get the benefit of raising your metabolism to help you keep a healthy weight and give you more of that energy you desire. Thus the spiral effect of your lifestyle.
Sometimes we need an energy boost that might also help us feel more alert and focused and give us the power to get through a workout and start to build on the benefits that exercise can bring. When you are able to do some form of physical activity every day – and that means choose something you like to do so you will DO IT – you will feel better. You build strength. Your mood improves. You have more energy to do your everyday tasks. And you are building your metabolism that helps you burn calories and fat that will help you get or keep your target weight.
Energy for Exercise
It all begins with having the energy to accomplish this. Even though you say you are too busy, and you are busy, you can schedule in sometime during the day for your favorite exercise. My activity of choice these days are kettlebell workouts that I do at home and walks outside since the weather is nicer now. I like how the kettlebell helps me tone up (I am turning 50 this year and need that!) and feel stronger. It works all parts of the body and I feel so much better after a 20-30 minute workout.
Having the energy to get through exercise and actually doing some activity every day (or at least most days), even for as little as 20 minutes, really can change your life. It also naturally increases your energy so help you stick with it. Instead of turning to a heavy dose of caffeine for the energy to get all this working for you, there are some natural Energy Chews from the Shaklee Corporation that are healthy and very easy to consume to get a quick boost of energy.
Some people take the energy chews to raise their energy level in terms of better focus and alertness in the middle of the work day. Maybe they need to be fresh and on top of their game for a mid-afternoon meeting when they really are dragging and would rather take a power nap.
Athletes take energy chews before workouts or maybe again at the end of an endurance event like a race where they want to be able to sprint across the finish line. Long distance drivers use energy chews to stay alert and focused on the road as they get through their day.
There are some junk caffeine products on the market today. Some have too much sugar or contain artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or other additives. It’s hard to understand why you would do something healthy like work out in a gym and then put junk in your body. Energy chews do contain green tea that has a lower amount of caffeine. There are 60 milligrams of caffeine in one energy chew so even 2 chews consumed together has less caffeine than the smallest cup of starbucks coffee that you don’t see too many people drinking.
Other ingredients in Energy Chews are: L-tyrosine, L-theanine, B vitamins, and vitamin D to help sustain energy, improve performance, stay alert, sharpen focus and improve mood. Sounds like a list that I would like to feel after I chew a little square or two that taste like a piece of Starburst candy.
Energy is essential to perform or compete at the highest levels and it’s important for each of us to have every day if we want to be in control of our lives instead of letting life control us. Quick energy in a convenient form that can help us get where we want to be and producing that essential energy through regular exercise, sleeping better, eating better and having a better attitude about ourselves sounds like something easy and beneficial to do.
Whether you want to power through a tough workout, keep alert and focused during your work day, get more energy naturally when your energy levels dip, or stay up without a sugar drop that you may get from energy drinks – and speaking as someone who has already used Energy Chews – it is worth your while to give them a try. Plus they are 100% satisfaction guaranteed so you really have nothing to lose.
