There are many reasons for having no energy.  You could not be eating well, you would not be exercising enough (or at all), you could lack motivation or you could be having energy leaks in other areas of your life.  This post will discuss the above reasoning.

No Energy By Not Eating Well
We may all know that if we don't eat well, we don't feel as well.  I definitely notice that even more now that I'm pregnant.  If I eat too many chips or drink soda pop, I just don't feel as much energy.  Maybe you don't know that any carbonation, whether caffeine is included or not, can be detrimental to your bones and energy.  Did you know that it takes your body 8 ounces of water to counteract the effects of 1 ounce of carbonation on your body?  Simply drinking one 12 ounce carbonated soda a day can not only help you gain 10 pounds in a year, but it can also significantly deplete your energy level.  Anything processed, especially white flour, pasta or rice, can take away energy from your body as well.

No Energy By Not Exercising Enough
It is suggested that we exercise moderately 30 minutes a day most days of the week.  If you are not doing this, you may not be getting enough exercise.  Also, in listening to your body, you may need even more.  If you are trying to lose weight instead of only maintaining it, you also may need to exercise more vigorously.  You can figure out your target heart rate by 220-your age.  A good working up a sweat not only helps you feel better physically, but also mentally.  I know I feel better every time I leave the gym.  By not exercising, you can't possibly be at your physical best throughout the day.

No Energy Because of Energy Leaks in Your Life
Energy leaks can be many different things.  They can include jealousy, laziness, clutter, etc.  If you have bad feelings in your heart toward anyone for any reason, you don't have extra energy for the good things.  If you're lazy, you lack energy to do what you need to do.  The more you have in your place of living, the less space you have in your life for other things.  If you want more goodness in your life, you'll have to find the energy leaks in your life and fill them up.  Only YOU can know what your energy leaks are. 

If you need help finding the energy leaks or other ways to help you get more energy, please ask me.
