  1. 8 Rules for Defeating Anxiety That Your Doctor Isn’t Telling You

    anxiety defeatingAlthough defeating anxiety is one of the most important things you can do, it’s also one of the most intimidating.

    After all, part of anxiety is the feeling that you can’t ever get better.

    How are you supposed to defeat anxiety when the very fact that you have it makes you feel like you can never defeat it?

    First, it’s vital that you lose the stigma about having anxiety.

    Talk to your doctor. Admit you’re struggling with it. There are ways your doctor can help.

    But your doctor isn’t the only one who can help with defeating anxiety.

    You have a powerful ally where you might not expect it: yourself.

    In spite of what the anxiety may have you believing, you really can help manage, control, and defeat it.

    1. Accept the moment. As strange as this one sounds – and it does sound strange, who wants to accept anxiety? Doing so is key to defeating it. Anxiety is made worse when you try to fight it. Judging yourself, thinking you’re a bad person for having these feelings, trying to force yourself to “just get over it”… all of these exacerbate the anxiety rather than alleviate it. Instead of beating yourself up and trying to force your way through it, try to acknowledge it. Sit with it. You know what anxiety is, you know what it feels like, and most importantly, you know it will end. So, don’t judge and don’t fight. Let the moment be what it is. This one takes practice, but once you get the hang of it, it can become one of your most powerful tools for defeating anxiety.

    2. Distract yourself. Some people consider distractions a cheat. They believe that if you’re just distracting yourself, you aren’t really defeating anxiety. But if a distraction calms your nerves and makes you feel less anxious, that counts! A good distraction is any healthy alternative that makes you focus on something else rather than your anxious feelings and negative thoughts. Listen to music. Call a friend. Play with a dog. It really doesn’t matter how you distract yourself, so long as you do. Just don’t get spun up thinking about the things you feel like you can’t do. Revisit #1, accept that you’re not up to it, and find a distraction that you can manage. Which leads us to…

    3. Make a cup of tea. First, the act of filling the kettle, getting out the teabags, finding a mug, all the steps you take to make a cup of tea can be excellent distractions. But then, the tea itself can help defeat anxiety if you choose wisely. Chamomile and green teas both contain compounds that can help relax you and defeat anxiety. Valerian and lemon balm can also be brewed into tea, just be sure to follow the directions. And all four can be taken as supplements, if tea isn’t, well, your cup of tea.

    4. Learn your own triggers. Anxiety is different for everyone, so defeating anxiety has to be different for everyone. It’s not a cookie cutter condition. As soon as you’re able, make notes about what was going on leading up to the anxiety attack. Was it a slow build of stress? Was it one particular person? Or anticipating a specific event? Wait until you’re calm to try to address this one, because it’s easy to get caught in the emotion of the moment and not be able to identify a cause – which can make you feel even worse and more anxious. Once you’re calm, you’ll be able to see more clearly. And then, you may be able to find a pattern.

    5. Eat a healthy diet. Let’s be honest – fruits and vegetables aren’t going to defeat anxiety on their own. However, it’s easier to deal with what’s going on in your mind when your body is up to the challenge. And researchers have known for years that diet can affect mood. So give your body the healthy food and nutrients it needs to help you take care of your mind.

    6. Exercise daily. When it comes to defeating anxiety, daily exercise can help on two different levels. Anxiety can be caused or exacerbated by an abundance of stress hormones that build up in your system. Exercise can help burn them off. By exercising daily, you help prevent them from ever building up to the point that you end up with anxiety. But also, when you are feeling anxious, getting out and getting moving helps purge your system of the hormones that are contributing to your feelings. It takes about 21 minutes for exercise to help ease anxiety once it has kicked in, so get moving as soon as you can.

    7. Breathe deeply. When most people breathe, they only get oxygen into the upper parts of their lungs, which is a shame because deep, belly breathing is necessary for defeating anxiety. It has to do with the fight or flight response that can trigger anxiety. Once that physical response has started, unless you do something with those chemicals, they have nowhere to go. Deep belly breathing can help slow your heart rate, and bring your body back into a calmer, more relaxed mode. Inhale deeply, expanding your diaphragm, not just your chest, for four seconds. Hold for four seconds, then release for four seconds. Repeat several times while you’re anxious and throughout the day to stay calm. And speaking of the fight or flight response…

    8. Take care of your adrenal glands. These are the glands that control the fight or flight response. When they’re activated, you get a rush of adrenaline, secondary bodily functions are slowed, and you get a burst of energy that will allow you to fight or flee for your life. It’s an involuntary physical response from when our very lives depended on being able to escape from predators. Fortunately, in everyday life we rarely need the fight or flight response. Unfortunately, your body doesn’t know the difference between a saber tooth tiger attack from history and the stress of the modern world. Which means your body is always in fight or flight mode, just from the stress of living in the 21st century. This means your adrenal glands are tired. Think about how you feel when you’re constantly on the go. That’s how they’re feeling, so they aren’t functioning any better than you do when you’re exhausted.

    Defeating anxiety isn’t easy. It isn’t simple. There are no sure-fire steps that will make everything better immediately.

    But with practice, these guidelines really can help. And combined with your doctor’s advice, they can make a real difference in your life.

  2. 3 Quick Exercises to Ease Your Adrenal Stress

    stress adrenalYou’re exhausted all of the time.

    And you know that exercise is supposed to boost your energy – but it doesn’t.

    In fact, nothing that’s “supposed” to help actually does.

    If this sounds familiar, you may be dealing with adrenal stress.

    Adrenal stress, or adrenal fatigue, is a condition where the constant, ongoing stress of everyday life has simply overworked your adrenal glands until they become as exhausted as you are.

    And when your exhaustion and fatigue are caused by adrenal stress, you’re right – the standard ways to relieve your symptoms won’t work as well, if at all.

    Your body needs more than a good night’s sleep or a caffeine boost. Some – like heavy exercise - may even be making you worse!

    Knowing Where to Start

    The key to relieving adrenal stress with exercise is to know one very specific thing:

    How stressed your adrenal glands are.

    Researchers have discovered “evidence of reduced adrenal responsiveness”, in other words your adrenal glands not doing their jobs properly, when people work out too hard or too often.

    So if you’re in the later stages of adrenal stress, the very thing that is supposed to be helping you gain energy and strength is, instead, wiping you out.

    However! And this is a big one – for people who are in the early stages of adrenal stress, traditional exercise very well may be helpful.

    After all, exercise does help burn off stress and excess energy that can keep your adrenal glands working overtime.

    Which might make you wonder – why not just opt out of exercise altogether? Well, first of all, we all need to move to be as healthy as possible.

    But just as importantly, appropriate exercise can help restore the adrenal glands and alleviate adrenal stress, so that they can get back to giving you the energy you need to get through your day.

    So how do you know which type of exercise is right for you? First, if you don’t feel like you have enough energy to exercise at all, stay away from long, heavy workouts. But how hard do you crash after the initial burst of energy?

    Because exercise should increase your energy throughout the day and help you rest at night. If you work out and feel great, congratulations!

    But if you work out, feel better, and then crash – come back to gentle exercises that will ease your adrenal stress, not make it worse.

    And which exercises are those? We’ve gathered some for you.

    Getting Down to Business

    1. Light cardio. This isn’t running or a Zumba class. This is an easy walk around the block, or a slow cycle on a stationary bike. And you’re not walking for miles, either. Stick to twenty minutes per day, three to four days a week. For some people, even this is too much. If you can’t manage twenty minutes outside, start by walking around inside your home at first. Anything is better than absolutely nothing.

    2. Easy training. Lifting weights can be an excellent way to tone muscle in order to get lean and healthy – even if you’re struggling with adrenal stress. If you are, you should still lift, just lift lighter and less often. Try starting with exercises that use your body weight as resistance, rather than free weights. Think wall push-ups, planks, and squats, rather than heavy weights or machines. Only do this kind of exercise twice a week, and for no more than twenty minutes, max. Less if it tires you out.

    3. Yoga. For some people, yoga brings to mind people holding themselves up on their hands, or standing on their heads. While that is part of what yoga can be, it’s not all of what yoga has to be. In fact, very simple yoga moves can be effective when it comes to countering adrenal stress.

    Start with one called Legs Up the Wall:
    Stretch out, on your back, with your buttocks right up against a wall. You can put a pillow under your hips and lower back if you need extra support. Straighten your legs until they are flat against the wall. If this is uncomfortable, or your legs get too tired, you can bend your knees until your feet are flat on the wall. Extend your arms, close your eyes, and relax. You’re doing yoga. Concentrate on breathing deeply. Hold the pose for at least two minutes and for as long as thirty.

    Pay Attention to Your Body

    Just like your body told you that your adrenal glands were stressed, it will tell you when they start to get better – or if your exercises are setting you back.

    If you find yourself tired all the time again, take a couple days off to restore yourself – and when you go back to exercising, go back even easier.

    And, as you start to have more energy and feel better, you’ll be able to increase your exercise routines, slowly, up to sixty minutes at a time. Still, don’t rush things. Adrenal stress takes a huge toll on your body.

    Which is why it’s also important to take care of your adrenal glands from the inside out, with supplements that support and nourish them, like Peak Adrenal X6. So they can restore themselves – and you –even faster.

    Adrenal stress is stressful. Adrenal fatigue is exhausting. Don’t live like that another day! Take care of your adrenal glands, so they can take care of you.

  3. Schisandra Berry Benefits – Get Charged Up Like Never Before

    Peak Adrenal X6 with schisandra berryLegend tells of Russian hunters who would go out at night and could hunt without stopping to drink…

    …or eat…

    ...or rest

    ... all because they chewed on something called a schisandra berry.

    Surely the schisandra berry benefits weren’t that great though. Stories about night hunters being able to go for hours without food or drink, immune to hunger pains or thirst were just stories. And the rumors of boundless energy that gave them the spark to track their prey through the Russian forests had to be exaggerated.

    These were just legends, after all.

    Or were they… Continue reading

  4. Siberian Ginseng – The Russian Secret for All-Day Energy

    Siberian ginseng in Peak Adrenal X6Have you heard about the Siberian secret that is Siberian ginseng?

    If you’re already taking Peak Adrenal X6, then you probably do. But if you’re like the rest of us, you may have only heard bits and pieces here and there.

  6. Adrenal support supplements v. Starbucks coffee: What’s better value?

    Posted by: on
    Some days you’re tired, no matter how much sleep you get. And when you start to have more tired days than energized days, you may want to explore some options to boost your energy levels and help your body adapt to stress more efficiently. You might be surprised to learn that adrenal support supplements can provide the safe, natural energy support you’re looking for. You may have heard about Peak Adrenal X6 adrenal support supplements, and how people who take Peak Adrenal 6 can have soaring energy, sharper mental focus, and even sleep better at night. Peak Adrenal X6 does this by supporting the adrenal glands, allowing them to recharge so your whole body can recharge. Peak Adrenal X6 helps the body respond appropriately to stress and stimulation, which in turn, makes you feel more efficient, more rested, more capable of handling the day without wanting to collapse from exhaustion.

    The CoffeeSolution? Natural Adrenal Support May Be Better

    So why not just drink a few cups of coffee, or down some Red Bull? Won’t that get you energized and back in action? The difference is that, unlike caffeine and other stimulants, Peak Adrenal X6 helps address what may be the real reason you’re tired, and distracted, instead of just masking the symptoms. And it does this by giving your adrenal glands the support they need to recharge. But what about the price? Coffee’s cheap and easy, right? A quick run to the local coffee shop is so convenient, not all that expensive, and gets you through your morning. After all, aren’t you supposed to “wake up and smell the coffee?” But how does the price of that daily coffee really stack up to the price of Peak Adrenal X6? Let’s use Starbucks, just as an example…

    The Starbucks Price Challenge: Coffee v. Adrenal Support Supplements

    The average price of a tall (small) Starbucks coffee is $2.00. It’s more if you get a specialty drink, like a latte, and less if you get a simple brewed cup of Joe – but the average is about 2 bucks. So let’s say you stop in first thing in the morning to wake up and chat with some friends. That’s only $2.00 and that’s not bad. At least not at first glance… Once you do the math, though, it’s a different story. If you only have that cup of coffee on weekday mornings, you’re spending $2.00 approximately 20 times per month. And that equals $40.00. If you make that stop every day, suddenly you’re looking at $60.00 in a month. And even if one cup of coffee gets you through your morning, does one small cup of coffee really get you through your whole day? Let’s be honest, most of us reach for a second cup at some point in the morning. Which means another $2.00 – so that price can quickly double to as much as $120.00 every month. And remember, that’s if you only get a small/tall. If you get a medium/grande or a large/venti – or prefer specialty coffees – your price will just keep going up. And if you give into the temptation of a treat, or grab a coffee for a friend, or a bottle of water, really, the sky’s the limit on what your tab could be. Not to mention the cost of gas to get you there and back, the value of your time spent getting there, etc. It all adds up to much more than just a $2.00 cuppa Joe.

    Peak Adrenal X6 : Excellent Value for Adrenal Support Supplements

    Peak Adrenal X2 adrenal support supplements Compare that to the cost of Peak Adrenal X6 . A one-month supply of Peak Adrenal X6 supplement costs $39.95. That’s it. No extra costs depending on what size you get. No having to budget for flavors or extra shots. One month equals $39.95. Plus, Peak Adrenal X6’s price actually goes down if you buy more than one month at a time. With our multi-bottle savings, you spend less the more you buy! If you purchase a 6-month supply, it will only cost you $35.78 per bottle, which works out to about $1.20 per day. Try getting your local coffee shop to give you a discount every time you make a purchase…

    Adrenal Support Benefits Even Beyond Price

    But raw numbers aren’t the only costs of Peak Adrenal X6 v. Starbucks. When you rely on caffeine for energy, you risk a crash as the caffeine wears off, requiring you to drink – and pay for – even more coffee just to keep you going. But you also have to worry about when to stop drinking coffee, or else risk being kept up all night from the buzz. Not with Peak Adrenal X6. With Peak Adrenal X6, you get the energy boost you need, the focus you’re looking for – all the benefits of a Starbucks coffee – with none of the extra expense or side effects. The price of Peak Adrenal X6 is reasonable to begin with.

  7. Adaptogens: What They Are and 3 Reasons You Should Take Them

    Posted by: on
    Peak Adrenal X6 adaptogensThere’s quite a buzz going around these days about adaptogens. Seems everyone is talking about adaptogens, or which herbs have adaptogenic properties, or which nutrients are the right adaptogens for you. But no one seems to be explaining exactly what adaptogens are and why they’re so important. It’s easy for all the good advice about adaptogens to become nothing but noise. Yet, adaptogens are really important. So here’s what you need to know about adaptogens…

    What Is an Adaptogen?

    Much of the modern research into adaptogens has been performed by Dr. Israel I. Brekhman, who defines adaptogens as “plants which increase the body’s nonspecific resistance; that is, they provide valuable support to the human body in coping with the pressures placed on a wide range of its functions by both the internal and external environments.” Translation, please!! So let’s break it down. An adaptogen is
    • A plant or plant extract
    • That supports the body’s natural systems
    • And its ability to handle stress
    • From internal and external sources
    Some common adaptogens are:
    • Panax ginseng – a perennial grown in China, Korea, Japan, and Russia; it should not be confused with American ginseng or Siberian ginseng
    • Licorice root – yes, that licorice, the one you are familiar with in candy flavorings, has a long history of traditional use in helping combat stress
    • Rhodiola rosea – is found mostly in the Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and Alaska. References to rhodiola in medical notes go back as far as the first century Greece
    • Eleutherococcus senticosus – is sometimes referred to as Siberian ginseng, even though it has entirely different chemical components; also known as eleuthero
    • Schizandra chinensis – has been used for healing and medicinal purposes for over 2000 years. This flowering plant is native to parts of China and eastern Russia
    • Ashwagandha – is considered one of the most important herbs in ancient and traditional medicine. The roots and berries are commonly used in the creation of supplements.

    3 Reasons to Take an Adaptogen

    1. Stress and the Fight-or-Flight Response: Since stress levels can be an indicator of overall health – and high stress levels can contribute to making us sick – supporting our body’s response to the natural stress reaction is one of the best preventative steps we can take to ensure we stay healthy.By now, you’re probably familiar with the fight-or-flight response. It’s when we are faced with a stressful situation and our adrenal glands flood our bodies with the adrenaline necessary to either fight our way out of it, or escape the situation (flight). This is a natural, biological response, and we can’t keep it from happening. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t recognize the difference between the stress caused by a one-time, life-or-death emergency, or a grueling commute we have to take to work every morning.While our bodies are designed to respond to the emergency with action, and then relax once the emergency has passed, the daily stressors don’t go away – our bodies never get to the relaxed stage. If we stay in this heightened level of stress for long, our immune systems start to weaken and our bodies stop working efficiently. It’s simply exhausting! While we may not be able to prevent the fight-or-flight response from kicking in, we can help regulate how our bodies respond to it. And this is where adaptogens come in. An adaptogen works in two ways: by moderating the adrenaline rush and by supporting the relaxation or recovery stage. In other words, you get less adrenaline flooding your body, and it recovers more efficiently once the stress has passed.
    1. Free Radicals and the Antioxidant Effect: You hear a lot about free radicals and the damage they can do to our bodies. Free radicals impact the body by throwing it out of balance, making it unable to resist their damaging effects. Antioxidants, like adaptogens, help the body respond appropriately, boosting the body’s natural ability to fight off free radicals, and may even prevent free radicals from causing as much damage.
    1. Oxidative Stress and the Antioxidant Effect: But what about the damage that free radicals may have already caused? This damage is known as oxidative stress, and it can make you feel sick or tired, and age you prematurely. But adaptogens can help there, too. When our bodies are healthy, they have the ability to respond to oxidative stress. Adaptogens act as antioxidants and support the body’s natural ability to respond in a healthy way to the very unhealthy oxidative stress – helping you feel better, look younger, and have more energy.
    These 3 physical responses are your body’s way of responding to the world around us. There’s only so much you can do to prevent these reactions – but they can still leave you tired, unmotivated, and grumpy.

    How Do You Choose Which Adaptogen to Take?

    All of these complaints –low energy levels, being tired all the time, lack of motivation, moodiness – these are all symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and oxidative stress, both of which are brought on by the body’s weakened ability to handle stress. Adaptogens can help your body handle adrenal fatigue and oxidative stress if that is what you’re dealing with. So how do you decide where to find adaptogens and which ones are right for you? You can scour the internet and get a dozen different opinions about a dozen different adaptogens. You can ask your doctor, and hope he’s one who doesn’t scoff at you for wanting to try a natural alternative. Or, you can try NorthStar Nutritionals’ adrenal support supplement formula, Peak Adrenal X6.

  9. Energy secret fights “tired all the time” adrenal fatigue

    Call me crazy, but at my age gulping down a can of Red Bull—or pounding one of those Monster Energy drinks—sounds more like a death wish than a strategy for driving away that “tired all the time” feeling. And, frankly, if you’re over the age of 18, maybe you should start thinking the same way. Because let’s face it, those super-caffeinated syrupy-sweet drinks are likely to leave you feeling overstimulated and more jittery than a cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. Even worse, if you try to sneak in a few zzz’s you can just forget about it. Suddenly it’s as if someone superglued your eyelids open, even if that caffeine-in-a-can jolt took place hours before. Trust me, I get it. When you find yourself dragging through your days—and your brain feels like it’s hung up a “Gone Fishing” sign without bothering to inform you—it could be a sign of adrenal fatigue. And you can start to feel desperate for some relief. I understand that it feels like you don’t have much of a choice sometimes. But the truth is, when your get-up-and-go has gone missing, those temporary “fixes” won’t do a thing to address the real issue of adrenal fatigue. Sure, they might give you a quick spike of gung-ho unfocused energy, but the BIG CRASH is never far behind. When it arrives, you’re left feeling even worse than you did in the first place… moodier, more stressed, and more fatigued. And that’s a crying shame, because for many, the secret to unstoppable energy—not to mention the cause for that “can’t make it through the day” butt-dragging fatigue—could lie in two tiny glands you likely haven’t given any thought to before. I’ll get back to those neglected glands in just a moment, but first let me let you in on the…

    Siberian secret to jitter-free energy

    Hidden in the mysterious and harsh remote regions of Siberia, a remarkable plant grows. This plant may turn out to be the most powerful answer to natural jitter-free energy ever discovered. And although this local legend has long been overlooked by most in the Western world, its revitalizing secrets have built up an underground following that’s rumored to include talented Olympic athletes, top military leaders, and even heroic astronauts. But before I reveal the details on this incredible discovery—and how you can feel better than you have in ages—let’s back up a moment and talk about what’s really at the heart of many cases of butt-dragging, poor-sleeping, can’t think, tiredness. Despite what you may have read, for many people (perhaps even most) a bad heart, low testosterone levels, or even a case of the blues isn’t what’s causing their exhaustion. The real reason could very well be two, tiny little triangle-shaped glands that are found tucked away next to your kidneys. I’m talking about your adrenal glands, of course, and in far too many people, this unexplored source is the REAL party pooper that’s been raining on your parade. But it turns out that a common plant, one discovered growing like a weed in the often severe Siberian climate, could hold the answer to adrenal fatigue and your energy needs. This astonishing plant, Eleutherococcus senticosus (try saying THAT one three times fast), has been used by Siberian villagers in their traditional health tonics for as long as most of the locals can remember. And, it turns out this Siberian secret may be able to do what no energy drink can—help your body operate at its peak adrenal levels.

  10. Why am I always tired? And what can I do to get more energy?

    467467593Many of us are asking that more and more these days, and maybe you are too. It doesn’t seem to matter how much sleep you get, or how much coffee you drink -- you still feel tired, stressed, and a step or two slower than you want to be. And you constantly ask yourself, “Why am I always tired?” Let’s take a look at what might be going on… Recognizing Adrenal Fatigue The answer very well might be a condition known as adrenal fatigue. And the right supplement could deliver blessed relief...and energy! But first, it’s important to identify the problem. If you are dealing with…
    • Occasional sleeplessness -- either trouble getting to sleep, or staying asleep
    • Getting a good night’s sleep and still feeling tired
    • Tired in the afternoon, but wide awake at bedtime
    • Lack of motivation, or trouble finishing projects
    • Irritability, or snappishness
    Your adrenal glands could be overworked, stressed, and as tired as you are! What Causes Adrenal Fatigue: Constant Fight or Flight When you are stressed, your body reads this as you being threatened. The adrenal glands kick in, flooding your body with adrenaline and giving you the extra energy, focus, and strength to handle the immediacy of the perceived “threat.” This is commonly known as the fight or flight response, because you have the power to either fight off the threat, or escape from it. Back before modern civilization, when humans were living in caves and huts, this was a necessary response to ensure survival.  When we would fight, or when we would flee, our bodies would flood with adrenaline, we would exert that energy, and then, once the threat was eliminated, our bodies would relax again. Unfortunately, our bodies haven’t evolved as quickly as civilization has. Your body doesn’t recognize the difference between a saber tooth tiger attack and the stress from a long, daily commute…or being worried about retirement…or scared over your spouse’s health. Your body still responds to these long-term, constant stressors the same way it used to respond to short-term, immediate emergencies – with fight or flight. But, the difference is that we never get the physical release of the adrenaline that comes from fighting or fleeing. It just keeps coming, without ever relaxing again. Which means your adrenal glands never get the break they need to completely recover resulting in the constant, nagging feeling – “Why am I always tired?” Addressing Adrenal Fatigue: How to Break the Fight or Flight Cycle But it’s possible to break out of fight or flight and reset your adrenal glands. You can sleep better, and wake rested and ready to face the day. You can regain your focus and motivation. You can have more energy and feel like your old self again. Here are 3 things you can do right now, to start addressing adrenal fatigue and ramping up your energy levels:
    1. Take a look at your sleep patterns. Are you going to bed at the same time every night? Getting up at the same time every morning – even on weekends? Make your bedroom an electronics-free oasis, so that your body starts to learn that getting in bed means it’s time to sleep.
    2. Make sure your diet is healthy. Get plenty of water, so you stay hydrated. Eat plenty of protein, and other energy boosting foods.  For other great ideas on natural ways to boost your energy, click here for more information

  11. 6 Natural Energy Boosters: What helps dragging energy levels?

    175285184Remember when it seemed you had never-ending energy? When you were able to rise with the sun, and go all night? We remember too, and we want you to feel that way again. “Oh, you’re just getting older,” or “That’s what happens as we age,”  aren’t good enough answers for us. You don’t have to accept less energy and more fatigue as inevitable. Here are few natural energy boosters -- easy things you can do every day to relieve your fatigue and get you energized for life… Behavior Changes -- Natural Energy Boosters

     1. Get Enough Sleep. This seems like a no-brainer, but you’d be amazed how few of us actually get the amount of sleep we need at night. In fact, it seems to be a point of pride for some people to claim to function well on only a few hours of rest. Except most of us don’t function well on very little sleep. Recent studies indicate even as adults, we still need 7-9 hours of sleep every night.

    Lack of sleep has even been linked to chronic illnesses, and yet we don’t get enough. Instead, we use caffeine to get us through the morning. However if we’re not actually rested, we have to reach for the caffeine, or other stimulant, again and again. But if we can truly sleep for eight hours every night, not only do we wake more rested, we have more energy throughout the day.

     2. Take Up Yoga. Both exercise and meditation can help increase our energy levels, and yoga is an amazing way to do both at the same time. Yoga literally gets the blood flowing, which gets oxygen to our cells, our brains, our whole body. This, in turn, gives us more energy throughout our day.

    Yoga also increases our body’s ability to handle stress. The less stressed we are, the more efficiently our bodies function. The more efficiently our bodies function, the more energy we have. And you don’t need to join a gym or buy a bunch of fancy workout clothes. You can do basic yoga moves right in your own bedroom.

    Dietary Changes Can Be Natural Energy Boosters

     3. Drink Plenty of Water. While we all know that drinking water is good for us, not many of us think about it in terms of energy levels. But our bodies are mostly water. It is essential to life. As our muscles get dehydrated, they function less well, and we get draggy and fatigued. Our mental capacity slows down. Everything slows down. Plus, being dehydrated can slow our metabolism, which makes us feel tired. All of which can be prevented by a simple glass of water – or three!

     4. Be Nutty. Proteins are natural energy boosters. Magnesium helps our bodies turn sugar into energy. And nuts, especially almonds, are loaded with both. A handful of almonds mid-day can give you the lift you need to get through your afternoon, without adding the empty calories and inevitable energy crash of a sugary snack.

    Reach for the Right Supplements

     5. Caffeine. Caffeine is a common and easily available way to give yourself a quick boost. And it doesn’t have to be bad for you. It seems that 2-4 small cups of organic coffee or green tea per day will do just that – give the average adult a quick boost of energy. And let’s be honest, some days that quick boost to get us over the slump is all we need. Just be careful not to consume too much so you’re not wide awake when you don’t want to be. And avoid energy drinks and shots, which are some of the most unhealthy, artificial, and chemical laden ways to consume caffeine.

    6. Natural Supplements. Now this can get a bit confusing. There are so many and they all claim to do the same thing…but not quite the same thing. Weeding through all the information can make you want to throw up your hands and give up. That’s why we developed Peak Adrenal X6 – to take the guesswork out of it.
