Dr Oz: How To Achieve All-Day Energy
According to Dr Oz, we’re in the middle of an energy crisis: human energy is depleting. Approximately 85% of Americans report waking up tired while 75% say they’re drained during the work day, and the majority of people say they just aren’t getting the sleep they need.
Tim Ferriss, “The 4-Hour Guru” joined Dr Oz with real solutions and a brand new approach that will work in real time. Tim loves to test and do research on anything he’s curious about. He’s tested theories on everything from how to live a healthier life to how to get a better body. This time, after hearing too many people complain about a lack of energy, he logged hours studying energy and fatigue with the help of CEO’s, celebrities, and more. He worked around the clock until he was finally able to reveal the secret to harnessing more energy and sustaining that level of energy.
Dr Oz: Minimum Effective Dose + Do Less To Get More
Tim first explained that his brand new approach to achieving all-day energy has been vetted by hundreds of the world’s top performers. He explained that the brain and the body work together and you need to harness both of them to get the best results.
The first secret to all-day energy is “do less to get more.” It’s a concept called the minimum effective dose. For example, instead of using a knife to cut a slice of cake, you can use a simple piece of dental floss across the entire cake to cut two slices in half the time, with great results. Instead of working hard, it’s about working smart.
Dr Oz: Micro Doses Of Exercise Throughout The Day
One way to put the minimum effective dose concept to work in your own life is with exercise. Tim suggested using micro-doses of exercises throughout the day, like athletes and CEO’s do. You can do just a few simple exercises in the middle of the day to give you a burst of energy when you’re feeling drained. You don’t need to break a sweat, you just need to activate your nervous system. Aim for 2-3 times per day and you’ll reap the benefits.
One great exercise requires furniture sliders for each of your hands, but you can easily use rags or towels as well. Get down on your hands and knees with the material beneath each of your hands. Then slowly move your hands out a few inches and back. Go out as far as you can to engage the core and work the upper body. You don’t have to break a sweat to activate your nervous system. Try doing it just a couple times a day.
Dr Oz: Titanium Tea For Low Afternoon Energy
If you’re struggling with low energy late in the afternoon, try Titanium Tea. Tim loves to use a bag of Pu-Erh Aged black tea with a pinch of green tea, then adds a dash of turmeric and ginger shavings with 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil. You may be surprised by how tasty the drink is, and you likely won’t even need sweetener!
