22 Alternative Ideas for Increasing Your Energy Levels

Are you tired all the time? I totally understand the ongoing battle.

Some years back, I tried pretty much every single conventional idea to increase my energy levels and get rid of the persistent brain fog.

I’d been experiencing chronic fatigue on and off for almost half a decade and it was starting to feel as though it was inescapable and a condition that I’d just have to learn to manage for the rest of my life.

I tried ALL the usual stuff that everyone including my doctor suggested; I started drinking more water, I exercised more often, I took a high-quality iron supplement, I took quality time out, I slept the recommended eight hours a night and I was still suffering from inexplicable chronic fatigue on a regular basis.

My productivity was really suffering too — as was my bank account. I could barely complete my work on time and the quality just wasn’t what it used to be.

So if you’re currently experiencing chronic fatigue, know that I’ve been there and I know how debilitating and heartbreaking it can be.

If you’ve tried all of the usual ideas on increasing your energy levels, give some of the below points a shot and see how you feel after a month or so! 🙂 Having more energy is going to be brilliant. It means that you can be so much more present in life and get so much more done 😍.

Keep in mind that if you’re under some kind of exercise routine that was professionally recommended to you, keep it up because it’s super important to move your body daily and it can be so much fun!

This article assumes that you’ve been fully assessed by a medical professional, undertaken the blood work and tests advised by them and the underlying cause of your fatigue remains unknown. 

Ditch the Caffeine for Good

If you can, drop caffeine from your diet for just a month and see the difference it makes to your overall health. Replace your coffee or black tea with herbal teas or a gorgeous, creamy Brazilian latte.

Take an Iodine Supplement

Organic kelp is rich in iodine. Or a liquid supplement such as Detoxidine as nascent iodine is the most readily absorbed form of iodine.

Get Your Vitamin D Levels Checked

Vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency is pretty rife in the Western world. It can be found in foods such as fortified cereals and butter but our skin makes it when it’s exposed to sunlight. In countries that don’t get much sun all year round, people are at risk of falling short of this vital vitamin. 

While a deficiency of any vitamin or mineral can cause you to feel unwell, low vitamin D levels have been linked to extreme fatigue amongst other health issues. If your doctor hasn’t already suggested a test, ask if they think one might be beneficial.

If you need to take a vitamin D supplement, go for vitamin D3, not vitamin D2 and this is a much better form of the vitamin. 

Taking a D3 supplement in the cooler months can help to keep your levels up. The recommended daily amount is 1000 iu, but if you’re very deficient, your doctor might prescribe a higher dosage.

Too much vitamin D can cause fatigue so ask your doctor for a blood test to see where you are after supplementing for a while.

Ask Your Angels and Guides for Help

Last but not least at all, if you’re a spiritual person, ask for higher assistance and guidance. Chronic fatigue can be really heart-wrenching to deal with at any age and at any point in life. After asking for help, you might find the right solution will appear.


Now and again, you still might feel tired and there are plenty of reasons why but if you have more ‘awake’ days versus tired days, you’re on the right track. Personally, I still have some bad days here and there but the key to success is to just persist with whatever works for you. Don’t let people who don’t understand chronic fatigue make you feel any worse than you might already be feeling. There is a stigma attached to people who are affected by it.
