KIRSTY HUTTON knows a thing or two about how to stay energised — in fact, she jam-packs her life with 3 jobs plus a side hustle! Kirsty shares how she manages to consistently wake up at 4:30 AM each morning and naturally re-energise throughout the day.
When you have enough energy, everything is easier. If you’re using all of your energy to make it through the day, here are two natural ways to boost your energy levels:
Sunlight: Even if it’s cloudy, get outside every day. To help with energy and sleeping patterns, try to get at least 15 minutes of sunshine as early as possible in the morning and do this without sunglasses on. Your skin has light receptors too, so if you can bare your arms or legs during this time you’ll get extra energy benefits. Also try to get some midday sunshine to help power you through the afternoon.
Earthing / Grounding: There’s a whole bunch of electromagnetic science and big words behind this one, but just know that spending some time each day with your bare feet on the ground will help you feel better. Humans build up a slight positive charge in our bodies throughout the day, the Earth is slightly negative. By connecting with the Earth it can help balance you out. Early studies have shown this to improve sleep and decrease inflammation, with the theory that the electrons are acting as an antioxidant for the body. Definitely worth giving it a go.
