7. Stay Active
It may seem counterintuitive but staying physically active, especially walking, is a great way to increase your energy. Walking helps increase lung capacity and strengthen the muscles in and around the heart.
In addition, it improves digestion which in turn helps keep the body free of toxins. All these factors are important for good stamina as well as higher metabolism.
- Enjoy a short walk every morning in an open area. If possible, walk on grass.
- Swimming, cycling and running are some other exercises that tremendously help in boosting stamina.
8. Practice Diaphragmatic Breathing
By practicing diaphragmatic breathing, also known as belly breathing, you can help restore your energy. When more oxygen enters the body, it has a calming effect on your mind and body. In addition, it helps fight stress and anxiety that often take a toll on your energy.
- Lie down in a comfortable place and relax your muscles.
- Put your hands on your abdomen.
- Breathe in deeply through your nose for about 2 seconds.
- Next, breathe out slowly through your mouth for about 4 seconds.
- Repeat for 10 minutes.
- Do this 2 or 3 times daily.
