Have you been feeling energetically drained as of late? You want to spice things up and get back to feeling like you again, but don't know where to start? Here are some of my favorite ways to recharge your mind, body, and spirit when you need an energetic boost! Pick a few that work for you!
Make yourself a cup of tea and read a book. Do a Google search for inspirational quotes. Look for words that make you feel empowered! Write down a few of your faves and keep them handy.
Go for a hike or for some fresh air. Spend a day or weekend away if possible. You can even find a beautiful place to just sit and observe nature. Bring your journal with you if you wish.
Have a good cry. Making time for emotional release can actually make you more productive.
Take a break from the news and social media. Sometimes it can all be too much and quite overwhelming when you're dealing with your own "stuff". Opinions, naysayers, jealousy, and comparison can run abundant in these forums. Spending a lot of time online or watching the news can lead to energy drain. It's okay to unplug for a while.
Say “No.” You don’t always have to try to be everything to everyone or stretch yourself too thin. It’s okay to set boundaries for self-preservation.
Have some alone time to recharge, but don't isolate yourself. Spend time alone to go within. Seek understanding and wisdom, but don't forget to come back to the world.
Watch an uplifting movie or a comedy. Who or what makes you smile? Cute cat videos, baby goats in pj's, comedic sketches, funny movies? Get reacquainted with your funny bone!
Sleep. Catch up on your z’s. When you’re working determinedly on a project you may not be getting enough sleep or think you don’t have enough time to get ample rest. Listen to your body. If you feel like you need extra rest, do it - take a nap.
Fuel your body properly and eat less processed food. Incorporating citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, or limes and drinking plenty of fresh water can help you to feel rejuvenated as they aid in flushing toxins from your body.
Connect with your sexual energy. Seriously, kundalini energy, sex energy is powerful stuff. Sexual energy is creative energy. Having sex can also help to release pent up anger and tension.
Listen to music. Pump up the jam! Pull out your headphones and turn up your feel good tunes! Feeling extra daring? Dance around the house naked - when no one's home of course.
Get a massage or an acupuncture treatment! Having a massage therapist work out the muscle tension in your body or an acupuncturist work with the meridians in your body can help to alleviate pain.
Do something light and fun with friends or family! Be around people you love and who love you unconditionally. Be with those who make you feel safe. Who are your security blanket people? I can't say this however, without saying be aware of any co-depency issues with these people in your life. Have boundaries with those who drain your energy.
Get out your crystal companions! Stones like lepidolite, aquamarine, and lithium quartz help to alleviate anxiety and stress while stones like carnelian, citrine, sunstone, or bloodstone help to give you a boost of positive fiery energy.
Connect to the element of fire! The suit of wands in tarot is tied to this element and all it entails from action, drive, and passion to perseverance through hardship, competition with others, and regeneration. Working with fire can add some zesty inspiration to your energy.
Balance your chakras. Pay attention to your lower chakras as these are the chakras strongly related to our physical form and energy. We draw up energy from the earth to support these energy centers. Don't forget to clear your aura and protect your energy while you're at it!
Meditate and connect with your Spirit peeps! Your spirit guides can give you insight into where your energy is being zapped and how to take your power back.
Book a healing or reiki session. Healing sessions can be amazing experiences! A good practitioner can help you to clear away energetic gunk and recharge your battery. Find a trusted healer in your area.
Check the stars and see what's going on astrologically. Get a tarot reading. You may find clues as to why you're feeling energetically sluggish here!
I hope this post has helped to give you some ideas as to how you can recharge your mind, body, and spirit when feeling stressed, depressed, or low energy. What are some of your favorite ways to give your energy a boost?
