The Secret To Limitless Oomph!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Perhaps, you have children at home or have watched them at play. They never seem to tire. One minute they are rolling over on the floor. The next minute they are flying over the sofa. Before you know it, they have tripped you up and are now dangling precariously on the edge of some lofty cupboard!

“Where do they get all that energy!?” you wonder. Does it all have to do with age, as people usually say that children are naturally full of energy? Does it mean that you lose this energy as you grow older?

Before you write yourself off as an overage plodder, consider this: the more those children use their energy playing outside the house, the more energy they always seem to have for more mischief in the house. That is the secret behind their limitless energy!

The human body has a very interesting mechanism. As you use energy in physical activity, the body creates energy reserves for even more physical activity. This may sound illogical, but exercise does increase the energy reserves in your body. How then, since physical exertion uses up energy?

Due to regular exercise, the body adapts to the increased demand for energy by producing extra energy molecules in the body. These energy molecules come from the carbohydrates and fats in the diet. They are readily available for use by the muscles of the body. Talk about instant energy!

To prevent these energy reserves from running out, one has to keep a regular exercise program combined with a complimenting nutritional diet. If not, the energy reserves get depleted. Not a good thing to happen if you have a stack of reports to write, meetings to attend, deadlines to meet and endless commitments.

The best way to see the results of an exercise program is to stick to it. Simply start slowly with low or moderate intensity workouts. It may just be a jog around a field or a fifteen minute skipping session. Whatever it is, make sure it is tough enough to break a sweat without straining your muscles. Make this exercise session a routine at least twice or three times a week and you will soon notice that you can do much more than you were able to do.

Here is a tip to help you stock up on energy: do not start an exercise session on an empty stomach. Take a light nutritious snack before starting out. Also take a light snack immediately after the session to help the body restore the used up energy.
