Stretching not only lengthens the spine, it also increases alertness. Before you jump out of bed in the morning, stop and stretch. Don't jump...ease yourself out of bed.

It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's true! Simply eating breakfast will aide in lasting out the morning with more energy. Take time in the a.m. and eat something healthy.

Snacking during the day is great, providing that the snacks are healty. Avoid sugary snacks. They provide a false sense of energy that remains short lived. Instead, grab a apple or granola.

It is amazing how completing just one nagging task will make a person feel great. Find that little chore that has become a short term goal and complete it. That which once seemed overwhelming will become rewarding.

Do something to treat yourself. We all desearve a reward for the numerous tasks we complete each day. Buy yourself flowers, take a walk. Just do something for yourself. It will lift your spirits and help you feel better about your day in general.

Music that tames the beast will also tame a hectic day. Play something that relaxes you. Or perhaps you need an uplifting break so listen to something with a good beat. The right music will induce a natural energy boost and put a smile on your face.

End your day with a soothing, peaceful bath or massage. Aromas fill the room releaving stresses, soothing headaches and relaxes muscles. Try adding lavender to your bath.

Performing at least one of these activities will help to decrease your stress level, increase your energy level and get started on a path to a healthy lifestyle.
