Energy Cultivation/Boosting

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 26, 2012 at 5:41 AM

I hate those low-energy, lethargic days when I cant get going, or don???t get going until 4pm!

Any other besides the below tips?

Have a plan for the following day! Bed by 2230 at latest, get 7-9 hours sleep. 15-60 mins exercise in mornings on empty stomach. Get some sunlight on your eye to sync circadian rhythms. Coffee ??? perhaps with butter/coconut oil/mct oil(ive not tried the mct). Acetyl L-Carnitine ??? it should boost dopamine, though 1g doesn???t seem enough to affect me. Avoid am carbs.

Breathing ??? anyone know if any form of deep breathing can give you a quick boost?

Cheers!

Thanks! I did that.. My free T4 was 17.6pmol/L, TSH was 2.48mIU/L, both within the docs range. He didnt check free T3 though...

I second the water! Drink plenty of water in the morning. You lose a lot of water in the night, and your body continues to detox until you eat, so you want water to allow for more flushing of toxins. Going to bed well hydrated is important too.

B vitamins! A complex with B6, B12, folate, etc. Or eat some liver.

Get your cortisol tested.

and or

Consider that you may be reacting negatively to something ingested in the days prior.

Sounds like low thyroid to me. I would get your T3/T4 checked out

Taking a daily fish oil supplement has helped me with energy.

Also lots of water, always!

Not deep breathing necessarily, but look up "Breath of Fire." It's a type of yogic breathing, aka Pranayama that I find to be energizing and healthful.
