It's boring: The answer to that is boring - healthy eating and exercise. But boring or not, it WORKS! Exercise causes release of endorphins, elevates mood, increases sense of well-being and increases muscle mass. Increasing muscle mass is the only true way to "increase metabolism" so it helps with weight loss or maintenance. Healthy, non-processed foods are also energy rather than lethargy producing.

More energy: (1) Make sure you're getting 6-9 hours of sleep on a regular schedule. (2) Eat small frequent meals (every 3 hours or so) containing lean proteins and complex carbohydrates. (3) Supplement multi-vitamin and B complex. (4) Maintain a positive outlook towards life. (5) Get baseline blood testing done, if you have not to this point.

Exercise and rest: Optimizing exercise and rest is great for improving your overall energy levels. Goal of at least 150 minutes of exercise per week and appropriate sleep which is variable but probably 7-9 hours per night. Poor sleep reduces metabolism. Regular exercise stimulates metabolism.
