How Do People Get Energy Boost?

The Inspiration for this post comes from all the comments made by poeple in my normal daily routine. There is a lot of researcgh on this topic and curiosity has gotten the better of me.

One the first thing that comes to mind about maintaining a healthy energy level is getting the necessary amount of sleep.

Many things can help in this area if it is a problem, but for this article, it needs to be ruled out first, or someone would need to follow up on the lack of sleep before diving into the diet aspect of the issue.

Your mood and emotional states are so closely associated with your energy level as well! So, if you are under a lot of extra stress in life that can drain your energy too.

Being around positive people can be a real blessing and give you an energy boost!

High Energy-Boosting Foods

Some foods help us to maintain a healthy energy level without the Hugh swings in our blood sugar and the crashes that do to our systems.

Plus, all the minerals many Americans are lacking in their diets can have a drain on their energy levels.


Nuts are highly nutritious and packed full of all sorts of good vitamins and minerals.

Some are better than others and have different levels of fiber which will affect the length of the energy boost that someone will get from them.

Coffee and Tea are natural energy boosters that many of us use in the mornings and throughout the day to help with the pressures of the busy schedules.

Energy Drink Beneficial Ingredients

Just like in your coffee and tea if we do not use sugar, it is going to be better for us and prevent the crash that will happen if we allow ourselves to consume sugar.

Their information that is available shows the importance of reducing the sugar intake in your diets. Sometimes people don’t care and go through life doing what feels right to them at the time.

That will change when it all catches up with them later in life. Better to get a handle on it earlier rather than later; but one thing is to remember we all must choose the right choice when we are ready to make the change.

Don’t get me wrong; I still am not drinking any energy drinks, right now my energy levels are excellent and getting better as my diet continues to get better.

But with the extra research that I have been doing on the subject and learning how to read and interpret the nutritional information, my outlook on the subject is changing.

Getting a sugar free energy drink with extra B Complex vitamins being the primary source of energy boosting ingredients is not a bad thing to look for if you want to get one.

High Energy Diet Plans

The more you can eat fresh, unprocessed foods the better your chances of getting a high energy return from your meals.

Diets that are rich in fresh fruits and vegetables are going to be your best bet. It takes planning to bring the right foods to your job with you.

Plan your meals the day before and then follow your plan! It is so easy to give into temptation and get a fast food option that is going to make you feel like crap!

Keeping the right attitude is the best defense against the temptations to waver from the new diet. Also, as time goes by, it is getting easier to handle.

Our local supermarket has the prepackaged salads that are so convenient to take for lunch and adding a protein bar to help get through the day is working pretty good for me.

Then after work making something fresh at home is always more comfortable; the only real challenge is when there are errands to run after work and time gets short, but that is when the attitude and determination must kick in to make it happen.

Best Supplements Energy Boost

The last thing that you can do to help with ensuring that you keep a good energy level is to take a good supplement.

People need a supplement that has all the essential vitamins and minerals that the body needs to maintain a good energy level and keep everything working right.

There are so many options to choose from; the first thing to make sure of is how well the ingredient in the supplement is going to absorb in your body.

Liquid supplements are the best, and you can get a good B complex liquid that can be placed under the tongue for a pretty instant boost if you are deficient in B Vitamins.

Once your body has all the B Vitamins that it needs to boost is not felt as much (in my case not at all.)

The only drawback to the liquid vitamins is they must keep in the refrigerator, so that can be a limiting factor for many people on the job.

What I do is take an excellent supplement that has everything that you need, and it has been very good to me, even when I was not watching my diet my energy levels were good.

With a good diet, the energy level is just much better, and I find now that I do not need as much sleep!

    I do agree with all of the things mentioned here on how to boost ones’ energy, enough sleep, positive environment, and food. There’s one thing that I would like to be clarified.

    One of the energy boosters you mentioned is the oatmeal. I am completely disturbed and confused because I once read that oatmeal is not good source of nutrient. What really is the truth about this conflicting information about this food?

    Can I be enlightened about this, not only me but for those people who were able to read what I encountered..

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thanks for your comment Abagatan, Oatmeal is considered a great healthy breakfast option because of the large percentage of soluble fiber which aids in reducing the bad cholesterol (LDL= low density lipoprotein).

      Also, as mentioned here in this article, it is packed with fiber that slows down the digestion and allows for energy to last longer. 

      There are added benefits to the oatmeal has a single serving of 1/2 cup of regular Oatmeal (NOT INSTANT): 

      Phosphorus: 41% of the RDI                Magnesium: 34% of the RDI                           Copper: 24% of the RDI

      Iron: 20% of the RDI                              Zinc: 20% of the RDI                                      Folate: 11% of the RDI

      Vitamin B1 (thiamin): 39% of the RDI    Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid): 10% of the RDI

      Smaller amounts of Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and Vitamin B3 (niacin)

      This is coming with 51 grams of carbs, 13 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber, but only 303 calories, makin it one of the most nutrient dense foods out there!

    Great post and good info. 

    It is known that energy drinks gives a boost, but it is also shown that too much of them can cause heart problems, so my recommendation is to not drink more than one a day. 

    The high energy food is more healthy instead, as you can eat lots of them. It is what I do before I go to exercise, and it really helps, I have to say. 

    Anyway, thanks for sharing it! 

    • Chad Trader says:

      Your welcome Emmanuel, and thanks for taking the time to comment. I agree with you on eating healthier high energy foods is a better alternative to using energy drinks. 

  • Maggie20 says:

    Thank you for this great article. I can relate to what you are saying. It has been 2 years since I started living a healthy lifestyle and I can definitely see the difference. I have much more energy compare to before. I used to have sweet tooth and was craving sugar foods all the time. I thought it was making me feel good but that wasn’t the case I was feeling moody and I used to have insomnia all the time. Since I started watching what I am putting in my body and working out, I started feeling more relaxed, less stressed and more positive.  Even my husband said I sleep like a baby now.  lol

    Thank you for the info about the supplement energy boost. I think I will need one of these to maintain my energy level since I have small children and I am always on the go.

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you Maggie for taking the time to comment, just had a conversation recently with  a mentor in nutrition, about the way our taste buds change once we get used to eating the healthier options. That is encouraging to hear when others describe the same or similar experiences when it comes to diet and exercise. 

  • eohia says:

    This post is enlightening. I’m glad that there are healthy options to achieve same awesome results.

    Before now, I usually boost my energy levels by consuming a lot of carbohydrate rich foods or snacks, but due to the health implications I had to cut down on it. Sometimes too I try to get a lot of sleep, but this leaves a lot of work undone.

    I’ll try the options mentioned in your post, I believe I’ll get amazing results

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for taking the time to read the article and I am glad you got something out of it. For me it a couple of months after changing my diet, to fully notice the changes. And now when making small adjustments it takes a few weeks before the effects can be analyzed.

  • Alisha says:

    I agree a million percent with the statement about surrounding yourself with positive people and this will bring positivity!! A lot of these things I do, eat and drink already but there are even more I can add to my day to day and overall lifestyle. I do not fully agree with not eating any sugar as it is the fuel for our cells, but there are good and bad sugars. The good sugars break down slower in your body and have a low glycemic index meaning you will feel fuller longer and our bodies are much better at utilizing these sugars for energy or rebuilding muscle rather than storing sugars/fats which happens to the bad sugar and food with high glycemic indexes. Foods or drinks with a high glycemic index get broken down very quickly in our bodies, this is where the “crash” comes from and we all of a sudden are starving again. Thank you for this information, extremely helpful!

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for your perspective Alisha, sometimes I can get too focused on what is appropriate for diabetic diets, because it hits so close to home, and forget to look at it for young people or someone that is very active and may need extra sugar.

      Most people that I am around are overweight, and by more than a little bit! That is why my focus is on cutting the sugar out as much as possible.

  • Kelli says:

    It looks like you have a pretty good handle on the subject. You’ve obviously done your research and you have it laid out nicely and in an easy to read manner. It’s a great introduction to the vitamin product you have listed at the end. 

    This is a good niche. While there are a lot of people concentrating on health and diet-related niches (me included), there is just so much information out there and so many different options that you will have a lot of good material  to work from .

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for your comments Kelli, it is always good to get some confirmation on my content.

  • Maurissa says:

    Hi! I’ve always had a sensitivity to caffeine, so I can’t do any energy drinks.  I get a decent amount of energy from my vegan diet, but after having my bay and running on very little sleep, it’s just not enough anymore. I think what you have suggested would be my best bet. Do you know how long the liquid B vitamins last for in the fridge? 

    • Chad Trader says:

      Hello Maurissa,

      Being sensitive to caffeine, may give you some insight to how you may react to the liquid vitamins; on time a friend of mine tried it and he could not stay still for about five hours. 

      Other’s it did nothing at all… so best to try it slowly to see how it affects you.

      The liquid vitamins stay good for up to one year after it has been opened, I am sure that will depend on how long you leave it out when taking the vitamins.

      Hope that helps!
