Increase Your Energy Level Through Sleep, Nutrition, Exercise

The shelves at health food stores groan under their weight -- super vitamin pills, extracts, and other tablets and tonics that promise renewed zest and energy.

Not surprisingly, medical experts urge caution in using these products. Their advice: Instead of popping a pill to restore long-lost vigor, try propping a pillow under your head and getting to bed earlier. More sleep, regular exercise and better nutrition are natural ways to promote greater vitality.

It's simple. If you're basically healthy, all it takes to increase your energy level is a commitment to the "Big Three":

  • Eat healthy, nutrient-dense foods.

  • Get enough sleep.

  • Get your body moving with an exercise program.
