RealSimple: 9 Energy Boosters

6 of 10

Get an Energy Boost From Doing Things That Lift Your Spirits

Fun people, rhythmic music, and funny movies can boost your energy level, researchers have found. "In fact,anything that makes you feel good may raise your level of endorphins-the same chemicals that are released when you exercise," says Weil. Listening to music invigorates the body by activating several areas of the brain at once, building new nerve connections. "It also increases oxygen flow to the heart, which perks you up as well," adds Weil.

While you’re infusing your life with energizing experiences, try to cut out people and activities that drag you down and deplete your energy-the whiners, the naysayers…that deadly planning committee.
