Healthy folk like us probably already know these following 3 tips for boosting energy, but reviewing them might rev up that “get up ‘n go” mentality even so.

It also causes your body to release epinephrine and norepinephrine, stress hormones that in modest amounts, can make you feel energized. Even a brisk walk is a good start, so training with certified fitness trainer Karen Robiscoe is even better!
