Staying High on Energy

Since I plan most of my travel over the weekends when I go to different corners of the country, and I’m back to work on the following Monday no matter how far I travel, I am often asked, “Where do you get all this energy from?” Well to be honest, sometimes even I feel like my eyes can’t wait to shut, but I just hang in there and get through the day. There’s no magic pill that I pop, it’s only a lifestyle I’ve chosen.

Catching enough sleep is the most important determinant to stay active. Even if I fail to do that, I don’t mind catching a wink of sleep (if possible) in the middle of the day, mainly to get rid of the fatigue and weariness. If I don’t pay heed to the quality of my sleep, I’m like a zombie during the day and a hypersomniac at night. I dread such unproductive days!

Once I’m fresh to actually get going with my week I resume my workouts. After all the only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen. They keep me stronger, energetic and guilt free throughout week. Switching to a morning person has also been extremely helpful. This also gives me enough room to workout in the evening in case I miss my morning schedule. If I need to take off by the weekend I try to finish my workouts before leaving.

Food plays a vital role too. Eating at the right time and a balanced quantity is extremely important. Moreover, I haven’t fallen prey to any of the diet trends over the recent past, and I’m truly grateful after seeing the results in my overall strength. Fad diets just promise faster results, but eventually you end up popping more pills. I’ve chosen a more consistent sustainable eating habit, and it has helped me stay healthy for the last two years. I also cook my meals whenever possible, so that’s an added bonus.

It’s as simple as that. I love saving up my leaves in order to travel more, so I don’t spend too many of them either. After all who wouldn’t want that? Travel is also one of the key elements that helps me stay productive. If it does get challenging, who wants a life without any challenge? What say?

    Great article. Captures my current disposition. I’ve recently got into a good groove of working out in the mornings. Results: I feel more energetic throughout the day and get early & better sleep.

    You’re right about fad diets. I don’t understand the hype around “Keto” these days. I can’t follow no diet at all, really!
    But I do try to fast twice a week. That works out well.

    Going to grab the next challenge of my life by the horns. 🙂

    1. I’m currently on a short break from working out, but yeah I’ll definitely get back to it in a week. The fad diets, well they change every few months, turns out none of them work. Glad you liked the article 😀
