Feeling a little less pep in your step since we lost an extra hour of daylight? If so ? you are not alone! Follow these simple but very effective tips to help feel more energy fast.

  1. Drink lemon with water. Start your day right with a warm glass of water and fresh lemon juice 10-20 minutes before breakfast.
  2. Stretch and release some blocked energy for a few minutes throughout the day. Even 5-10 minutes will do the trick. 
  3. Invest in a high quality multivitamin and supplement with vitamin D during the winter. 
  4. Eat iron rich foods. Low iron is a common cause of low energy so be sure to incorporate iron rich foods such as red meat, dark green leafy vegetables, and beans. 
  5. Get outside. Spend some quality time outdoors, take in some fresh air (and get some natural vitamin D).


The Art of Stillness by Pico Iyer - Feeling consumed with your phone, tablet, computer, and television day and night?

Finding it hard to shut off completely? If so, The Art of Stillness offers insight into how to achieve more stillness and simplicity in your world. Author Pico Iyer draws on his own experiences to explore why advances in technology are making us more likely to retreat and seek out activities of calm (i.e. yoga, mediation or silent retreats). Growing trends such as observing an "Internet Sabbath" and turning off online connections from Friday night to Monday morning are all small examples of how Iyer has brought The Art of Stillness back into his life.

Ultimately, Iyer shows that in this age of constant movement and connectedness, perhaps staying in one place is a more exciting prospect, and a greater necessity than ever before.
