1. A Lack of Quality Sleep
Not getting enough quality sleep can impact your overall health and significantly lower energy levels. When you sleep, your body releases important growth hormones to repair and regenerate your cells.
Research shows that getting 7-8 hours of sleep per night is best for optimal health to wake up feeling energized and refreshed.
2. Poor Diet
Your diet determines your energy levels. When you don’t get enough nutrients like healthy proteins and fats, your body breaks down and can’t meet its energy demands which leads to fatigue.
To feel energized and renewed everyday choose a diet rich in whole foods like grass-fed or wild caught meats, raw dairy, organic vegetables and fruits.
3. Nutrient Deficiencies
Nutrient deficiencies can zap your energy leaving you feeling exhausted on a daily basis. Studies show that nutrient levels in our food have steadily declined since the 1950's and that our food is now deficient in the nutrients we need to thrive and to feel our best. Deficiencies in iron, vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 B12, vitamin D, vitamin C and magnesium have all been linked to fatigue.

4. Inadequate Hydration
Keeping your body hydrated is one of the most important ways to maintain energy levels because your body loses hydration everyday through urine, stool, and sweat. Dehydration leads to lower energy levels and decreased concentration, so it’s super important to drink at least 12 cups of water every day.
5. Overweight or Obesity
Maintaining a healthy body weight is the key to optimal energy and health. A great way to feel energized and activate your metabolism is by exercising about 45 minutes to 1 hour a day. It can be a long walk, a bike ride, a jog around the neighborhood, kayaking, hiking or weight training.
