Lose weight and you’ll feel much more energetic. Apart from eating healthily, the best way to lose weight is to be more active and do more exercise..

Drink more water for better energy Sometimes you feel tired simply because you’re mildly dehydrated. A glass of water will do the trick, especially after exercise.
