These energy boosters are all easily doable tips that you can adopt in your everyday schedule. Give them a try!
Your eyelids are droopy. You can’t stop yawning. All you can think of is crawling into your bed and snuggling under the comforter.
You have dinner to cook, kids to bathe, email to check, work to catch up on before tomorrow’s meeting. But, wait, you ask yourself, doesn’t one need energy to accomplish all these things?
You know that catchy song you heard in your car that you love and can’t get out of your head? Find it on YouTube or download it on iTunes and turn that baby up. Bonus points if you show off your dance moves!
I used to love coffee. I was never an addict as such, but I like to think I was on my way. I stopped before that happened, and besides, tea is a healthier alternative. Try this recipe for hot, steaming energy in a cup. Also, black tea contains tons of antioxidants. Win-win!
Try not to watch TV late into the night or stare at the computer screen right before you hit the sack. Your eyes will be super tired and need more rest, and if you’re going to bed late anyway, chances are you aren’t getting your eight hours of beauty sleep (guilty as charged!). Also, your brain will take more time to settle down after you’ve gone to bed, because it’s being overstimulated when it should be winding down.
I am not ashamed to say that I am a huge advocate of drinking water. I’m no doctor, but I truly believe that not getting enough water is the case of many imbalances in the body. Water flushes out the toxins and keeps us clean inside and out. Give your system a boost and quench your thirst with water.
Meditation isn’t just for monks or hippies. It’s a great way to relax, find your center, and re-orient your thoughts back to what you need to achieve. We all have the drive to succeed if we only tap into our resources through meditation. I like to sit in front of a sunny window in the lotus position, and breathe deeply: inhale through the nose for 4 counts, hold for 2, exhale through the mouth for 8.
Try to get up around the same time every day, and give at least 30 minutes to yourself, for whatever you want to do. I’m still working on this one, but when I get the chance, I like to stretch all my muscles and get some yoga in before attending to the day’s activities.
What do you do to keep your energy levels up in order to meet your daily goals?

No matter where one’s fandom lies, if one saw the clip of you visiting your son in jail, the sheer dignity would have one converted to 'being yours'!
I have done enough stuff in my journey making my son and husband often exclaim vexedly, ‘Aap Zara Sa Tham Jao Ji!’
But never in my dreams did I imagine that I would be writing an open crush-puff-piece at this stage of my life!
If the Chitrahaar Gods were especially propitious, they would showcase the song 'Papa Kahte Hain' and she would croon along to the song and wonder with you... where did her future lie?
The magazines called you the ‘Chocolate Boy’ and a little girl in a small town, who loved chocolates, rare as they were in the eighties, fell in love without even realising it. Not yet introduced to the charm of the brooding hero, she found your delectable rasogulla looks enticing enough, at the tender age of ten, to fall head over heels. You see, she had yet to be indoctrinated into the Tall, Dark, Handsome myth. Of course, if she had been a little bit older, she might have thought it was better to take greater note of your lipstick shade than your chocolate boy looks, for looks as they say, are here today and gone tomorrow.
She would wait impatiently for Wednesday and Friday evenings, counting the days in her heart. Come evening, she would be so excited, the spring in her steps would be hard to miss. She would be scared everyone would know the secret in her heart but still she was the first one to plop in front of the television at 8 o’clock promptly. It was the time for Chitrahaar and her only opportunity to gaze at your beautiful unblemished countenance without drawing attention to herself. You see, she carried her love for you like a firefly in her heart, a glow for difficult times.
