You can also bump up your energy level with everyday habits, like “getting enough sleep, and good sleep,” Kemper says.  On average, adults need about 8 hours of sleep a night.

Being active also revs you up. It all counts -- even a 10-minute dance party with your kids, or a pass at your garden, or a few yoga poses before bed.  Research shows that adults who fit in as little as 20 minutes of exercise a day felt less fatigued. More is better, of course.

Also, work on whittling down your stress. It will zap your energy fast. All the other good things you can do for yourself, like sleep and exercise, will tame it and get your get-up-and-go back in gear.
