Instant Energy: 3 Get-Up-and-Go Tricks

Surprising tweaks that deliver big results. Try 'em now!

Have a glass of water. Staying hydrated is one of the easiest things you can do for energy, says nutritionist Ashley Koff, RD. When you skimp on water, the cells in your body shrink, so they can't function as efficiently, triggering feelings of fatigue.

Talk fast. Ever notice that energetic people tend to zip through their words? Fast talk means fast thinking, which automatically boosts your energy, says Emily Pronin, PhD, associate professor of psychology and public affairs at Princeton. Speed-talk your way through your next friendly chat, and feel that breathless rush give you a boost.

Practice self-forgiveness. No more "I'm worthless because I'm overweight" or "I'm a lazy slob for skipping my workout" thoughts. "Guilt is like glue," says Kimberly Kingsley, author of The Energy Cure. "It keeps you stuck in a low-energy rut." Just. Stop. Now.

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.
