How does having more energy sound?
Yup – for most of us, this is a rhetorical question. It sounds pretty good.
Although it may surprise you just how many people say that they could do with having more of a spring in their step. In fact, at one of our Auckland workshops, 26 of our participants were keen to know more about increasing their energy in a natural way.
Here are the top 2 biggest takeaways from our attendees for the simple things they can easily do to improve their energy, and pronto! –
- Increase our water intake to an optimal level, so that our cells can function optimally. It also helps to avoid our bodies giving us false hunger signals when instead we’re actually really thirsty. We need 1.5 to 2 L of filtered, plain water every day, depending on our activities. Plus we need more water when we’re exercising or traveling; eating certain foods (especially anything salty or sweet), spending time in heat or air con; or even when we’re experiencing a potentially stressful time.
- Fill in the micronutrient gaps. 1 We all need macronutrients – including low glycemic carbohydrates with quality proteins, fiber and good fats. We also need to remember the micronutrients, the phyto chemicals, enzymes, minerals, and antioxidants that our cells absolutely need. Most of the time we’re not getting enough of these critical cellular nutrients from our food; even when we eat a healthy diet.
So, taking these two simple steps can create a major area of opportunity for us to naturally and noticeably increase our energy.
If having more energy is something you’re interested in, message me, as I love hearing from you, and would also love to hear your tips for more energy (without relying on caffeine).

1 Optimal levels of vitamins are essential for the healthy functioning of our different body systems. A good example is optimal levels of folate (a B vitamin) being essential for our brain function. Check out the research – Folate deficiency can lead to neurological disorders, like depression and cognitive impairment.
