Awesome Energy Lifehacks #6: Meditate

You'd think that meditating would only make you feel more tired, but did you know that meditation techniques--when used properly--can actually help to boost energy levels? Stress is one of the worst things in life, as it can drain your energy faster than anything else. If you are under a lot of pressure, you may find that you feel exhausted after just a few hours of work. This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol, a hormone that in turn increases adrenaline production. While this is great for short-term energy, long-term stress will drain your energy quickly. Adrenaline causes your metabolism to speed up, burning through energy stores far too fast.

Just sit in a comfortable position, focus on a calming thought, and let the world around you melt away. When you finish meditating and sit back down at your desk, you'll be energized and your focus will be greatly enhanced!
