Let’s face it, not just the winter season, but many other factors are impacting our energy level. Maybe it is our lack of sleep, or our work, or school commitments.

It’s important to always consult with your healthcare provide to rule out any illness they may be impacting your energy. Or discussing how certain Illnesses or medications can affect you. It’s important to also discuss with them any lifestyle changes you are considering making. Here are some general tips to boosting your energy:
- Drink plenty of water. Not having enough water each day can impact the body’s ability to function at full capacity. This affects the amount of energy we then have. Make sure to drink enough water each day.

- Exercise regularly. Staying healthy and active can boost your energy and give you endurance to get through long days.
- Do something about your stress. Take a look at your stress levels and what is causing you the most stress. Once you acknowledge that, you can work on adding activities that reduce your stress.
