Seven Ways to have more energy and to feel happier. So I go My name is Hana Banani empowering you with psychological tips and spiritual support. Bismillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah, we all need more energy. So what are the seven tips that I can share with you? First and foremost is the nourishing food, the things that you eat, you are what you eat. So if you're stuffing yourself with carbs and sugar, obviously, you're going to have an energy crash, make sure that you are consuming food that fuels you, when you have it. You can feel your body thinking when you have a smoothie, when you have a salad, when you have a nice healthy meal, you really feel energized. The second

00:00:42--> 00:01:27

thing that you need to do to feel more energized, is sleeping seven to eight hours, it makes a huge difference. Don't underestimate how powerful sleeping seven to eight hours is. The third thing is keeping good coffee, when you have a support group friends that have positive outlook, and they are energetic, that is going to boost your energy because there are some people who will constantly suck the energy suck the life out of you. And these kinds of toxic people will drain you. So you need to surround yourself with positivity, good people and individuals have a good outlook in life. And the fourth thing is avoid news overload. I know that we want to stay connected, we want to know the

00:01:27--> 00:02:07

latest information. Usually it's all bad news, right. And that's usually news that will stress you out. And if you do that excessively, it starts getting you down. So have a limited amount of time where you are getting the information and you're not getting sucked into it. The sixth thing is making sure that you exercise regularly, because it will relieve you of a lot of the tension, the stress. And we know some of yours, like I'm too busy, I don't have time, everyone has time for four to five minutes. And when you do that, you're going to feel a burst of energy. The sixth thing is do something meaningful, everyday add a sense of purpose to your life, whether it's connecting with

00:02:07--> 00:02:50

others, whether it's doing a kind act for a family member for a neighbor, do something that is adding meaning and purpose to your life and you are going to feel a sense of happiness with them. The seventh thing is have good thoughts of others throughout the day, it's so easy to look at people to be judgmental to think that people are bad or they have negative outlooks, whatever it is that you are reflecting on, it's going to affect your energy level. Because if you are thinking negative thoughts, whether it's about your life, about yourself about other people, this is going to drain you what I want you to do is what's called kind attention where you look at somebody, and you just

00:02:50--> 00:03:33

wish them well. When you think of someone that crossed your path, or an individual that you know or you remember, you said the prayer upon that and you think good thoughts rather than consuming yourself with negative things that people have done. So it's just about where you put your focus three ways to be able to accomplish this one is monitor your energy, take your energy temperature, what is energy temperature, you become aware of how energetic you are throughout the day, give yourself like from zero to 10. How energetic Are you? Are you a morning person are you at night out, find out your energy temperature, once you figure that out, then you make incremental changes. You

00:03:33--> 00:04:15

can't go from eating junk all the time to just completely transforming your diet, although it can't be done. But you can do incremental changes, you say you know what I'm going to introduce salad into my life, I'm going to take away these sugary treats, whatever it is, you make incremental changes, if you need to get organized in your full organization will really put your mind at ease. What you could do is say so like I'm going to redo the whole house, you'd start with one cabinet one door. So making those incremental changes will make it a lot easier at the last thing is you have to plan and prioritize now that you know this is when I have my burst of energy. There are some people who are

00:04:15--> 00:04:55

morning people and they wake up and that's when they're most energetic. That's when you need to do the most important thing. So don't waste your time on scrolling or doing thoughtless activities, do the things that really matter most and when you knock those out, then everything else will be much easier. So this is really critical for you to know how to increase your energy, and then how to go about making these changes. Don't overwhelm yourself with one of my clients. She was using the treadmill as a storage and I'm sure many of you could relate. You're being honest. Check close all those stacks of books. I said, Okay, let's clear it out, move away all this stuff. And I told her

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

like about 10 minutes a day and that was too hard. So I said you know what, why don't you do

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

One minute right now in the session, go out there and just do this. And it made a difference, right? When you make it easy for yourself, then you have no excuse. No one can say I don't have time for a one minute workout. And I know it sounds silly. And you think that, oh, well, what is one minute going to do is just getting yourself to get started. And when you do that repeatedly, day after day, after day, after day, it's going to become a habit, and you're going to feel so good about it, you're going to get energized, that you're going to be like, You know what, I'm going to do more, it's going to be intrinsically rewarding. And when you do the things that are intrinsically

00:05:34--> 00:06:11

rewarding, you don't need to bribe yourself, no one needs to drag you because you're getting the benefits, your level of energy is a direct correlation of your happiness. Just think of a day when you didn't have enough sleep. I know that if I have like four hours of sleep instead of my seven, and sometimes we're not able to fall asleep, or we have a big project we're working on. How do you feel the next day, if you're eating junk? How do you feel the whole day you're just dragging. If you're around negative people, if you're around someone who's constantly complaining, complaining and seeing the negative in the world, oh my god, that really sucks the energy out of you. And if you

00:06:11--> 00:06:49

are watching the news all day, and that's all you're getting, that's going to Jade the way that you look at the world. And if you'd have not gone out there and done any form of activity, you feel lethargic, you feel so down. And if you're not having any sense of purpose, you know how to quiet that she was so down and so depressed, I'm like, it's because you lack purpose in your life. If you're not doing something meaningful, the roles of being a wife, a mother, they're amazing roles, being a father, being a husband, these are amazing roles, but you need to have a greater sense of purpose. And when you have that sense of purpose, then guess what? You're going to feel good inside,

00:06:49--> 00:07:28

you're going to feel happier. And then it's about having good thoughts about others stop dwelling on all the people who harmed you stop dwelling on all the negative people out there. Yes, there are negative people. Yes, there are people who may have hurt you. But you know what, there are amazing people out there, there are people who've been good to you. So reflect on that reflect on the people who are good, reflect on all the positive experiences you've had. And if you take your energy temperature, fight that Where are you and when are you at your peak that do little incremental changes, don't get overwhelmed by it. And then you plan and you prioritize, you find that this is

00:07:28--> 00:08:12
