Would you like more energy during the day? We bet the answer is yes. Whether you’re younger or older, working or retired, raising a family or living alone, most of us could use more vigor in our lives.
There are many reasons why we might feel lazy or uninspired. Some factors, such as medical conditions, are beyond our control. “But in most cases, there are very small, simple, achievable lifestyle habits that can boost our energy levels,” said Dr. Sue Varma, clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at New York’s Grossman School of Medicine University and author of the next study. book “Practical Optimism”.
So we created a six-day challenge to set you up for a more energetic year ahead.
Starting January 1, 2024, the Well desk will share a week of evidence-based tips and inspiration so you can feel more alert throughout the day. Some challenges are fun, others will help you feel more creative or introspective, but each provides an easy way to feel more alive.
Well columnist Jancee Dunn will be your guide, along with nutritionists, therapists, doctors and exercise scientists.
By the end of the week, you’ll be more aware of what lights you up and how to harness those feelings for good health. You’ll also have the tools and motivation to stay recharged throughout the year.
