Being able to feel everything can take its toll on your body. The constant reception of other people’s energy can make you feel sluggish or worn out. It is important to continuously have proper nutrition, enough rest, and enough stimulation to remain balanced. To keep your energy up and your feelers still feeling, here are a few ways you can continue to operate at your best.

Stay Mentally Active
A lot of people feel that if you don’t use your brain to its full potential it will start to deteriorate. Confusion can set in as well as cloudiness and the inability to think clearly. To prevent this from happening, keep your brain as active as possible. One of the best ways to do this is through exercise. Whether it’s high impact like running or if it’s low impact like yoga, keeping your body moving keeps your mind moving. When we exercise we focus on what we are doing as we listen to our bodies, and that is a great workout for the brain. Doing brain teasers or puzzles like crosswords or Find-the Word are great for keeping brain function high and active.
Try Something New
We tend to get caught up in our daily routines and when that happens we can start to feel depressed. Doing the same thing over and over again doesn’t satisfy our natural curiosities and we can start to feel bored with our lives. By making sure you try something new from time to time or at least once a month will not only help your brain stay young, but it will introduce you to new people and new ways of thinking and doing things. This keeps you continuously active and keeps you physically and mentally healthy. Keep switching things up, and you will feel invigorated as you never stop learning.
Check Your Hormone Levels
As we get older, our hormone levels change, which causes us to develop ailments or conditions that slow us down. Things like low testosterone or hyperthyroidism are all connected to the slowing down or absence of the 50 plus hormones that keep us going every day. Looking into bioidentical hormone replacement is a solution where your hormones can be replicated on a molecular level and replaced in your body to keep you functioning well and at your full potential. When you are running on all cylinders, your potential is limitless.
It is so important to get out and socialize with friends and loved ones. When we socialize together we are happy because we feel part of a community and feel accepted. When we hang out with our friends we are also exposed to their lives and what is happening in their world, which in turn allows you to share your experiences. No one wants to sit around and do nothing, but plans give us something to look forward to, and plans also inspire us to be active in the world so that we have stories of our own to share.
