Do you find yourself in need of an energy boost? Contrary to popular belief, the solution isn’t found in an extra cup of coffee or squeezing in more hours of sleep. I’m about to share a secret with you—consider it your personal energy reset button. These simple swaps can help you regulate your nervous system and restore vitality in a way that aligns with your well-being.


🔌Unplug + Reconnect: swap your morning scrolling for 10 minutes of journaling
Step away from the constant hum of screens and carve out a quiet space to reconnect with yourself. A few minutes of deep breathing or mindful reflection can work wonders.

That first hour of waking is essential to setting yourself up for an amazing day, and if you jump into comparison, low energy content that most of our feeds are filled with, you instantly program your brain to operate from that state for the rest of the day.

Journaling on the other hand, will give you a chance to check in and connect with yourself, set intentions for the day, and go inward. So often we are looking outward, it’s the perfect opportunity to optimise your productivity and not open a million thoughts or tabs in your brain to start the day.

The modern world may be digital, but your vitality is analog—take time to unplug and recharge.

🍳 Fuel Your Body: swap intermittent fasting for a high protein breakfast
Think of food as fuel for your body. Kickstart your metabolism and set the tone for the day by having a nutritious breakfast. This simple act provides consistent, stable energy that will sustain you throughout the day. Remember, what you eat plays a crucial role in how you feel.

Aaaaaannd…. as women, it is vital that we don’t skimp on breakfast, this will drive up your cortisol levels, dysregulating your nervous system and your hormones. Do yourself a favour and add a scoop of protein to your smoothie, or have some eggs + bacon to get you energised and thriving!

🌿 Nature’s Remedy: swap another cup of coffee for 5 minutes of sunshine
There’s something inherently rejuvenating about spending time outdoors. Nature has a magical way of restoring your energy. Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, breathe in the fresh air, and ground yourself. It’s a holistic remedy available to us all.

It’s amazing how stuffy our brain can feel when we are trapped in the heating or AC. The fresh air is like a fresh breath of energy, bonus points if you can get sunshine (vitamin D), and walk barefoot (grounding recharges our energy tenfold).

💃🏼 Move Your Body: swap sitting for hours to taking the stairs/adding in a 30 minute walk
Physical activity is a potent energy booster. Whether it’s a leisurely walk, a rejuvenating stretch, or a spontaneous dance session to your favourite tunes, moving your body gets the blood flowing and invigorates your entire being.

Sitting is the new smoking, and the more time we spend sitting the more our energy becomes blocked, it’s important to get up and move around through the day, take the stairs if you can, park further away, get up every hour or so from your desk and talk a walk, your workout shouldn’t be the only movement you get each day (and hopefully you’re getting that in too).

🧘🏼‍♀️ Mindful Moments: swap snoozing your alarm for 5 deep diaphragmatic breaths
We think we’re doing ourselves a favour by hitting snooze and sneaking in some extra minutes of sleep, but in reality this lulls the body and mind into a false state of falling asleep. Which actually makes it even harder to wake up again, lowering the energy you start the day with, versus getting up and taking a few deep breaths to calmly start the day.

Integrating mindful practices into your daily routine. Whether it’s meditation, deep breathing exercises, or simply being present in the moment, these mindful moments clear your mind and recharge your spirit. In the midst of life’s hustle, taking a moment for yourself becomes a powerful act of self-care.


Remember, resetting your energy isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity. Your well-being deserves your attention. So, seize a moment today to recharge, and step back into life with a renewed sense of vitality. Your energy is precious—treat it as such.
