An instant burst of energy may be as close as your ears. When you massage your ears, you stimulate acupressure points that release energy throughout the body and increase circulation, according to traditional Chinese medicine. You don’t need to use any specific techniques; just spend a minute kneading, rolling, and pulling on your earlobes, then slowly move up to the top of your ear. These are 25 natural energy boosters that could change your life.

If you’re in the habit of bingeing on Netflix before bed, the blue light emitted by the TV could inhibit your body’s ability to secrete melatonin, a sleep hormone, according to Harvard researchers. To counteract the blue light and safeguard your sleep, try donning glasses with orange lenses before tuning in to Orange Is the New Black. You’ll get better rest and spend less time wondering why you’re so tired.
