    I work out at the gym, I try to go 5 days per week. Even though im super busy with school, I can always find 1 hour out of my day to go.

    I have resorted to caffeine.

    Yep, caffeine, and lots of it :smilecoffeecup:

    Bonny's suggestion of exercise is probably better - and healthier, though!

    I've been using caffeine in the form of Coke and chocolate, and it's starting to catch up with me. I need more and more of it to feel awake and it's causing me to gain weight, which makes me feel even more sluggish.
    I started going to the gym this week-twice so far-and I do feel less stressed and more energetic after a workout. I'm hoping that tapering off of the caffeine will help too.

    I have this problem all the time. I became a Red Bull fanatic.. yes bad bad bad... but between working 2 jobs from home and haveing 2 toddlers and then doing homework, cooking dinner, cleaning... ugh... I just felt like I couldnt get out of bed...

    My cure.... multivitamins and lots of water. the multivitamins worked wonders for me. makes me feel like a different person.

    multivitamins!!! Make sure you get enough B-12 and C so you don't get run down. I also take Coenzyme Q-10 which really seems to help a lot.

    Yoga seems to do it for me ...and when even that fails, caffeine :smiletea2:

    ooohhh...be careful with these. Hubby was really into these when they first came out, but I watched a health watch on the news that said it was not recommended to drink more than two a WEEK...because of adverse kidney damage! That was the end of his red bull kick! Pretty potent stuff.

    Exercise, eat right, sleep right.
    I walk two miles almost every day, Soloflex 3x week.
    Caffeine etc. is a short term fix and it will catch up with you. Exercise, eat right and sleep right is a lifetime plan that will pay off in your 40's...LOL

    I try to eat right(when I can), cook for myself, and generally do ok. Yesterday was day 4 of a LONG 5 day week and I wound up only eating McD at 12, until dinner at 7. I felt pretty green all day and wound up going to bed at 11 for clinicals at 7.
    I worked 3 nights in a row MTW 5p-5:30a, went to class T 11-4, missed my demo time on W cause I fell asleep, then went to class R, clinical site research Rnight, old job w-2 pickup R night, clinicals 7-3 today....So I could use some energy tips....yeah the caffine thing really doesn't help.....
    I'm ready for bed! I'm done, homies, peace out......
