Management: If you don't have an underlying medical condition - check this out through a comprehensive medical check up, then sleep, diet and exercise are the "big three". You want to get adequate sleep - 6 to 8 hours per night; have nutritious meals 3 to 5 times a day - more, smaller meals are better; and get adequate exercise - 20 to 30 minutes, about every other day. These simple things will regulate you.

Exercise: Exercise is the best known method for increasing metabolism. For some individuals, drinks and supplements containing caffeine will increase the metabolism for a short time. There are some medications that may speed up metabolism in some individuals.

Several: Getting 7-9 hours sleep at night, making sure you drink plenty of water, eat a balanced diet emphasizing fresh fruits and vegetables, and regular exercise will all help someone feel their best. Someone who is still tired all the time should check with their primary care doctor for any conditions such as depression, hypothyroidism, anemia, and vitamin deficiencies that might be the cause.

If : If you increase activity or exercise levels, eat healthy meals three times a day, and be sure to get enough sleep, you can usually increase your energy levels noticeably. If you try these approaches for 1-2 months without desired results, it may be time to talk with your doctor/health care provider. They may want to check thyroid, iron or sugar levels as changes in these can lead to low energy. People with certain health conditions should speak with a health care provider before increasing activity levels or changing food habits.
Increasing activity levels is best done with 10% per week increase, not more. So if you can comfortably walk, jog or bike one mile, the next week go 1.1 miles. Keep building this way until you can do 2, 3 or more miles. If you can comfortably walk 2 blocks, go.

Probably few or None: Energy comes from within. Lots of products are marketed as magical, like caffeine & sugar in energy drinks. But, as always, keep in mind that this is marketing, does not require any carefully designed & controlled scientific trials to verify claims. Buyer beware always applies. Regular exercise, preferably in ways you both enjoy & make connections with others are the most successful. See: nusi.Org.
