How to Boost Your Energy Levels

1. Listen to positive music
Listening to pleasurable music actually releases more dopamine, which makes certain area of the brain function better. It also increases the recovery from a wide range of conditions, which including heart diseases and common cold. Pleasurable music increases the overall immune system. Although it depends completely on taste what you experience as pleasurable, some music can actually decrease energy, because of its negative effect it has on the brain. My advice is to listen to music without lyrics or at least lyrics you don't understand. This will keep you from thinking too much about the lyrics.
2. Consume brain food
Food plays an important part in increasing your energy levels. Just like a car your body needs the right mix of fuel to perform the way you desire. If you had a million dollar car, would you put the cheapest gas into the motor that might break it?
The brain consists of 50-60% of fat, which are used as insulation for its billions of tender nerve cells. The better a cell is insulated, the faster it can send messages, which results in speedier thinking. With the best mix your energy and productivity increases. These fats can be found especially in fish like, wild salmon, mackerel and anchovies. Also dark green vegetables appear to be excellent ways to increase the insulation of brain cells.
3. Take time to be quiet
Quietness frees up a huge part of your mental energy and rebalances your nervous systems. Doing the following technique for only 10 minutes a day will boost your energy level quickly. you can do this exercise in a park, bedroom or even on the toilet.
Sit down and make sure you have a comfortable position. Close your eyes and take 10 slow and deep breaths. Picture yourself in a spot that makes you feel relaxed. Like near the beach with ocean waves or on top of a mountain with green grass and lots of plants and flowers. Try to smell the flowers and the grass that has just been cut. try to feel as much as you can about the environment. Afterwards stretch your arms and legs and open your eyes.
These are just a fraction of steps you can take to quickly boost your energy levels. If these methods are not working for you it is also possible to take supplements. However make sure these are organic and not causing more harm than good.

Graduated or Layered Styles for Fine Hair

It is simply a case of using what you have at your disposal. It doesn't necessarily need to involve expensive stylists, products, or endless gadgetry. With the right advice you can get the look you have always wanted. When it comes to hairstyles for fine hair two of the best techniques you can use are graduated and layered cuts. Both of these methods play to the strengths of your hair type, and can leave you with a stylish and manageable cut.
Graduated haircut
With a graduated haircut, you can add real volume and shape to your hair, which is always very welcome with a fine hair type. By cutting the hair shorter towards the back of the head, you create style and movement, which opens up more potential for it to be sculpted into your desired style. It is also possible to modify and customize a graduated haircut to suit your specific face shape and taste. There are numerous options within this, and once you are confident with the foundations of the cut, you can experiment more and more to find your perfect style. To add more uniqueness to the style, you can also play around with a variety of colors and tones, to further accentuate the texture and style.
Layered haircut
Successfully layering fine hair usually requires more skill on behalf of the stylist, and, as it involves a number of intricate cuts, it is easy to get it wrong. Fine hair will really show up any flaws within the cutting technique, and equally accentuate the skill of a good cut. It is thus important that you are with a stylist who you trust, and who is experienced at working with your hair type. Like graduated haircuts, layering adds more texture, and body to your hair, and can give it more character. Layering can be done specifically to highlight the natural shape of your face, and is thus a good alternative if you don't feel that a graduated haircut suits you.
These are of course only two of many options available to you, and you can use these methods to adapt a number of hairstyles. Your hair type can't prevent you from getting the style that you want; it may just mean that you need to be more creative in the process. Be proactive in discovering your perfect style. Talk to experts, friends, specialists, and people on the street. Every woman on the planet has been through a crisis with their hair, and finding hairstyles for fine hair may well require some initiation, some inspiration, and maybe even some interrogation. Don't be afraid; find your perfect style today.
