Yesterday, I committed to working on habits to increase my energy for the month of July.  Of course, the hope is that at least some of these habits stick around a lot longer and that this really improves things for me.  While I started with just listing everything that I could think of that seemed like it would help increase my energy, it got me thinking about what Google had to say on the topic.  After all, Google knows everything.  So, I did a bit of research on the topic and compiled a list of things that were recommended.  Some things were listed over and over again like sleep.  Others weren’t so common and there were even a few things I’d never heard of before like eating a teaspoon of bee pollen with coconut oil drizzled on it.

I admit that some of these things seem a little silly to me.  Silly or not, my plan is to try as many as possible and to approach it with an open mind.  If it works for somebody else, who knows if it might work for me.  It was also interesting to see what an important topic this is to other people as well.  The list of ideas I compiled is below.  I am sure there are tons of other great ideas out there, but I think I have plenty to start with.  🙂
