Boost energy

We all need energy for both our physical and mental health. We need it to balance our relationships with our hobbies, and we need it for activities that include exercise and work. If you suffer from insufficient energy, your motivation to do these things decreases. The urge to grab an extra cup of coffee, energy drink, or candy bar for a boost is appealing. However, these urges might disturb your sleep cycle, which in the end makes you more tired. Luckily, the Wim Hof Method gives you the tools you need to boost energy naturally.

Natural energy boosters

There are many natural energy boosters to help you get rid of dreadful tiredness. But first, we must start by recognizing the underlying causes that vary per person. By finding and taking care of these problems, you are naturally boosting your energy levels. Below, we examined some of the most common underlying causes.

You are stressed out all the time - Stress can be positive—before you go on holiday, for example. This is actually very healthy. Negative stress, on the other hand, is extremely harmful to both your physical and mental health, as stress hormones bring your body's rhythm out of balance. As such, stress is one of the many causes of energy level deprivation.

You do not exercise enough - Research has shown that people who get 75 to 150 minutes of exercise each week experience having more energy than those who do not. Sadly, one out of four adults worldwide is physically inactive, which leads to various health problems, including a constant lack of energy.

You do not get enough quality sleep - When we are tired, we sleep to recharge ourselves. However, more than half of the people worldwide get less sleep than they actually need (7-9 hours every night). Not only the amount of sleep is essential for boosting energy, but the quality of your sleep is also crucial. When your sleep cycles are interrupted, you wake up more tired than before you fell asleep. Having an irregular sleep schedule or consuming too much caffeine or alcohol are some examples of factors that interrupt your sleeping cycles.

We understand that it is not always easy to stop stressing or to start sleeping better all at once. Fortunately, the Wim Hof Method helps you to take control of your body and mind. The method provides several benefits that help boost energy. Some benefits are:

Reduced stress - The Wim Hof Method teaches you how to commit to regularly practicing breathing exercises and taking cold showers, which help you control and reduce stress to boost energy.

Increased sports performance - We know that making a habit of exercising is crucial for boosting energy, but what if you are injury-prone? Thousands of people worldwide, including professional and amateur athletes, use the Wim Hof Method for their sports performance training and workout recovery. They experience a faster recovery from physical exertion, reduce their risk of injury, and feel more energized.

Improved sleep quality - People who practice the Wim Hof Method often report that their sleep quality improved and that they feel more energized during the day. They are able to control their stress, which positively impacts the quality of their sleep.

In summary, by practicing the Wim Hof Method, you will experience all kinds of benefits that serve as natural energy boosters.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
