Energize your day: 5 tips for a natural pick-me-up

Young Living Essential Oils - 5 Tips for a natural pick-me-up

It’s 2:30 p.m. and you’re yawning away the day. You don’t know how you’ll make it to the end of the workday, let alone school pickup, homework, dinner, chores, bathtime…Sheesh. We’re exhausted just making that list.

When you need a little booster to finish off the day strong or some extra pep to get it started, try out one—or all—of these five tips. Some take a few seconds, others a bit longer (you’re creating new habits after all!). But no matter what you try, you’ll be ready to take on the world in no time!


Water is the way

Drinking lots of water is key to staying energized, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a total bore! Stay hydrated by infusing your drink with YL Vitality Drops +Energy! Available in two flavors, these drops offer 20 mg of plant-based caffeine per serving and provide you with the morning, afternoon, or evening power-through beverage you need.

  • Add a splash of Spearmint Tangerine to your water for an unbeatable taste that is light and bright with a perfect hint of mint!
  • Infuse sparkling water or any bubbly drink with Jade Lemon Berry—a flavor so tasty and delightful you’ll reach for it daily.

Waiting for these new flavors to arrive? Fall back on our old favorites: Grapefruit Bergamot and Lavender Lemonade.

YL tip: Don’t have your hands on YL Vitality Drops yet? Infuse your water with oh-so-refreshing Vitality™ oils instead.

Let there be light

Don’t underestimate natural light. Let that big ball of energy in the sky do some work as you kick-start your day. Open your curtains and blinds first thing in the morning, eat one of your meals outside, or sit by the window as you catch up on emails. Mother Nature really will work wonders!


Get your groove on

Blast some music—it’s time for a pick-me-up dance party! Of course, you don’t have to throw a solo jam session for extra energy. Here are a few suggestions that can help too:

  • Stretch for a few minutes.
  • Walk around the block.
  • Try a 10-minute workout video.
  • Get into nature.
  • Do a few squats or calf raises at your desk.
