In brief: A few surprises
Surprisingly, exposure to the scent of peppermint or chewing a piece of peppermint gum can produce a sudden burst of energy.
Also, the smell of strawberries or buttered popcorn can cause an increase in energy. Finally, supplementing with coenzyme q10 (a substance that helps convert food into energy) can produce quick, easy energy.

In brief: Energy boost
Sleep hygiene - getting regular restorative sleep.
Exercise within reasonable limits but routinely. If seasonal, get outdoors or utilize a light box. Blood tests to rule out thyroid, electrolyte, and vitamin deficiencies. Mindful meditation, clear elucidation of goals, and activation could help. Watching what you eat - cutting the carbohydrates - and hydrating. Caffeine, social support, faith.
