Many people aren't aware of the fact that fatigue can in many cases be psychological.

I am sure you already know that severely depressed people feel like they don't have enough energy to do anything. Just like tiredness and fatigue are related to your mood physical energy is directly connected to your mood as well.

By learning how to manipulate your mood in certain ways you will be able to get more energy to exercise or do your daily activities.

7 ways to get more energy for exercising

  • 1) How to select your music: Most people use a random play list while excercising or working out because they aren't aware of two major psychological rules which are: I) You need to listen to something that resonates with your beliefs to get energetic and II) you need to avoid whatever can remind you of your unsolved problems. Follow those two rules and your music will give you much more energy (see also The psychology of music)
  • 2) Workout in the morning: Sunlight stimulates your body to produce happiness hormones which can give you more energy. Its always a better idea to work out in the morning than in the night
  • 3) Watch a motivational video: Once you get motivated your body will allocate more energy for you to use and you will be able to exercise better
  • 4) Look at pictures of your future ideal body: right before you exercise take a look at few pictures of the ideal body you want to reach. when you do so your subconscious mind will try to help you achieve that goal by making you more motivated
