Get Plenty of Sleep
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for having good, long-lasting energy — both mentally and physically. Getting a night of restful sleep, and making this an everyday habit, can do wonders for your energy levels, which can boost your mood and mental focus. Plus, getting consistent restful sleep will support a healthy immune system, allowing your body to fight off summertime bugs and heal from injuries quicker.
Tip: Set a reasonable bedtime and stick with it each night. Getting your body on a regular schedule may help you fall asleep quicker, stay asleep longer, and sleep deeper.
Spend Time Outdoors
Getting outdoors can give your body and mind a break from everyday stressors and distractions. Spending time outside gives you the chance to soak up some vitamin D, which, if you don’t get enough of, can contribute to depression and muscle weakness. What’s more, a simple activity such as walking through an urban green environment like a park or woodland can relieve stress and enhance your mood.
Tip: Find an urban park or open space nearby and schedule a 20-minute walk outdoors three to five days a week (or every day). Try to avoid texting or talking on the phone and, instead, allow your senses to take in your surroundings.
Take a Break from Digital Devices
On that note, it’s a good idea to take regular breaks from your digital devices to allow yourself to take a step back and recenter on you. Between smartphones, computers, tablets, and television, we are inundated with a constant flow of information. This constant access to social media posts and 24/7 news updates can really wear on your body, mind, and soul.
Tip: Give yourself at least 30-60 minutes a day free from scrolling through social media posts, texts, phone calls, and emails, and step away from the news, Netflix, and other distractions. Use this time to redirect your focus on yourself, your goals, and do things that can boost your health and wellness. Go for a walk, play with your dog, read a book, or simply sit in stillness to calm your mind from the stresses of the day.
Schedule a Massage
Give your body, mind, and spirit a chance to heal and rejuvenate with a relaxing and restorative massage. Massage therapy is an effective treatment for relieving pain, improving relaxation, and easing stress. Therefore, massage can boost your energy levels and your mood.
