Tired of Feeling Tired? Try These 18 Energy and Mood-Boosting Hacks


Are you feeling sluggish and unmotivated? Do you need a quick energy boost to get through the day? If so, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with low energy levels and mood swings, especially on busy or stressful days. However, with the right hacks and strategies, you can learn how to boost your energy and mood naturally and effectively.

In this post, we’ll explore some of the best energy and mood hacks to help you get through even the laziest days.

The Science of Energy

Before we dive into the hacks, it’s important to understand how energy works in the body. Energy is produced by the food we eat and the oxygen we breathe. When we eat, our bodies convert the food into glucose, which is then used by our cells for energy. However, other factors can affect our energy levels, such as:

  • Sleep: Getting enough restful sleep is essential for maintaining energy levels. Lack of sleep can make you feel tired and sluggish.
  • Exercise: Regular exercise can help improve your energy levels and mood by increasing blood flow and releasing endorphins.
  • Stress: High levels of stress can lead to fatigue and burnout.

Benefits of Energy and Mood Hacks

Energy and mood hacks are techniques or habits that can help improve your energy levels, focus, and mood. They have several benefits, including:

  • Increased productivity: When you have more energy and focus, you can accomplish more tasks in less time.
  • Reduced stress: High-stress levels can drain your energy and make it harder to concentrate. Energy and mood hacks can help you manage stress more effectively.
  • Improved overall health: When you feel good, you’re more likely to make healthy choices and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Natural Ways to Boost Energy and Mood

There are many natural ways to boost your energy and mood, including:

  1. Eating a healthy diet: Consuming nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can provide your body with the energy it needs to function properly. Avoid processed and sugary foods that can cause energy crashes.
  2. Staying hydrated: Dehydration can cause fatigue and mood swings. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated.
  3. Getting enough sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night to help your body recharge and maintain energy levels.
  4. Staying active: Regular exercise can help increase energy levels and improve mood by releasing endorphins.
  5. Practicing relaxation techniques: Stress can drain your energy and affect your mood. Practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing can help you manage stress more effectively.

Supplements and Other Products

While natural methods are always the best, some supplements and products claim to boost energy and mood. Here are some of the most popular ones:

  1. Caffeine: Caffeine is a natural stimulant found in coffee, tea, and chocolate. It can help improve alertness and focus but should be consumed in moderation.
  2. Green tea: Green tea contains caffeine and antioxidants that can help improve brain function and increase energy levels.
  3. Ginseng: Ginseng is a popular herbal supplement that is believed to enhance energy and reduce fatigue.

Hacks for Instant Energy Boost

Sometimes you need an energy boost quickly. Here are some hacks that can provide an instant energy boost:

  1. Stretching: Simple stretches can help increase blood flow and wake up your muscles, providing an instant energy boost.
  2. Power nap: Taking a quick 20-30 minute nap can help improve alertness and reduce fatigue.
  3. Listening to music: Listening to upbeat music can help improve mood and energy levels.
  4. Aromatherapy: Certain scents, such as peppermint and citrus, can help stimulate the senses and increase energy levels.
  5. Cold shower: Taking a cold shower can help wake you up and provide an instant energy boost.

How to Hack Your Energy Levels

If you want to take your energy levels to the next level, here are some hacks to try:

  1. Practice intermittent fasting: Intermittent fasting involves limiting your food intake to specific periods of time, which can help improve energy levels and focus.
  2. Take breaks: Taking short breaks throughout the day can help prevent burnout and improve focus.
  3. Use a standing desk: Sitting for long periods can cause fatigue and reduce energy levels. Using a standing desk can help increase blood flow and improve alertness.
  4. Use a natural light lamp: Natural light lamps simulate natural daylight and can help regulate your circadian rhythm, which can improve energy levels and mood.
  5. Try a supplement stack: Some supplements, such as caffeine and creatine, can improve energy levels when taken together.


In conclusion, low energy and mood swings are common problems that can affect productivity and overall well-being. However, with the right strategies and hacks, you can naturally boost your energy and mood and get through even the laziest days. By incorporating these tips into your daily routine, you can enjoy increased productivity, reduced stress, and improved overall health. So why not give them a try today?

      Hi Fern,

      Indeed, detoxing from mobile (specifically from social media) is essential- it’s so difficult to do but it’s a must, especially when I’m doing my morning routine.

    Curious about the coffee and creatine stack: Are there foods with creatine or is this a supplement?

    • Reply Lani April 16, 2023 at 5:24 am

      Hi Carolyn,

      Creatine is found in milk, red meat, and seafood. But here’s a really good supplement for that

  • Reply Katie April 15, 2023 at 2:26 pm

    Love these ideas. If I’m in a rut of a bad mood. I’ll try to take cold shower, stretch and listen to music all at the same time. I don’t enjoy the cold at first so I have to distract myself but it always helps me change gears.

    • Reply Lani April 16, 2023 at 5:27 am

      Hi Katie,

      I also don’t like the cold showers despite their benefits but I do agree with you it is a mood booster.
