Step 1: Boost Your Brain -- Turn Off the Tube

If your typical fix for end-of-day exhaustion is to plop down on the couch for a dose of Seinfeld reruns, you're not alone. Most people think that watching TV is a restful activity, but it may not be, says Marc Berman, PhD, a neuroscientist at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. In fact, television itself can be tiring, and the older you get, the fewer and fewer stress-reducing benefits you get from a session with the boob tube, a University of California, San Diego study says.

Instead of numbing your mind as a way to rejuvenate, stimulate it. Take a walk along a scenic trail; spending time in nature helps restore people's energy and focus, a 2008 study in Psychological Science found. What to skip when you're low on energy? The mall. You'll get more mental stimulation than you bargained for, which will leave you exhausted.

Excellent article. I didn't know that about TV. I limit my watching to 1 or 2 hours, and treat it as resting before bed. Guess I'll try something else and see if I have more energy.
