There are many ways to increase energy. Food is too often the go-to substance for a pick-me-up, as food is a primary source of nutrients to provide energy to our cells. Meditation is a way to manage and focus our energy. Daily meditation helps calm our mind and our body to reduce stress and improve energy. And exercise, especially mind-body activities like Pilates, is a form of moving meditation. Not only does Pilates help deepening the connection between mind and body to reduce stress and improve focus, but by enhancing our strength, flexibility, and fitness we develop stamina. Ideally exercise should not wipe you out and leave you exhausted, but instead energize you so that after a long day at work, you have an abundance of energy to enjoy life, have fun, and play. Add to your reserve stockpile of energy, Do Pilates!
