I recently sent out a survey to my tribe hoping to get some insight as to what you Goddesses would like to learn more about. I received a tremendous response with 48 hours. It was awesome. You can still participate in that survey HERE.
What wasn’t awesome were the answers to the last question in that survey. I’m going to tackle them bit, by bit in order of most common, but it was incredible. Almost every reply mentioned a zap in energy.
Rather than overwhelm you with 1,000 things that you need to do to gain more energy, I thought I’d start small and we can talk about more strategies in the future.
In this video I give you your 4 step optimized energy boost. How to feel more energized daily!
In this video I discussed:
Step 1- Starting your day with an internal bath first thing in the morning. Drink a tall glass (12-16 ounces) of plain water. Often dehydration of your cells leads to lack of energy! This simple daily trick will help you start your day off right. Bonus tip-add fresh squeezed lemon for an internal cleanse.
Step 2-Increasing your micronutrients- Leafy greens (spinach, kale, chard) or dark green veggies are the natural way to get it done. Also “eating the rainbow” getting in lots of phytonutients and micronutrients.
Because most of our veggies have decreased their powerful boost of energy through time it takes to get from food to table and the cooking process, supplementing with a GOOD QUALITY vitamin source may be something to consider.
I’m LOVING all the goodies from Onnit. But particularly the best and easiest way to get in some great quality earth grown nutrients is their Total Primate Care (packaged in awesome AM and PM packs).
Yes, a little pricey but worth spending more money on then a designer handbag, I promise 🙂

Step 3- Exercise! I know right??? How can you exercise when you have no energy? The cycle has to be broken by starting small and creating some momentum in your routine. Can you try scheduling 20 minutes 2 times per week to do something as simple as walking or doing one of my YouTube videos at home?

Step 4- SLEEP!!! I can go on about this topic for a looooong time. So very important in restoring your body and mind after a long day. Not only sleep, but good quality sleep. I talk about a “bedtime routine” and the importance of setting your room up for you to recover (sleep).
You can do the following tonight:
- 30 minutes of no electronic devices or TV before bedtime
- Set room temp to 68-70 degrees
- Block out all light
- No TV or music on to fall asleep
- No pets in bed
- Read a good book to settle your mind for 10-20 mins
- Give yourself either 6 or 7.5 hours to sleep to fall in line with our natural REM patterns
- Turn off phone (put it on “do not disturb” mode) & hide the time glow from your alarm clock.
