The only one of those I do is MOVE!
I credit a lot of the regular energy I do have to being active and to never getting into a caffeine habit.

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.
Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!
NEVER QUIT =]
Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.
Don't make todays choices be tomorrows regret

And try to have some protein with every meal and snack (but don't overdo the protein).
You are worth it!
What is it you do to keep your energy going?
Some helpful hints to help keep you on track...
1 Eat less "white food". Cut down or cut out sugar, and substitute pasta and rice, etc., for veggies and protein. You will find that you feel more energetic and able to do more.
2 Eat less. Eat until you feel you have had enough but not until you are full. Digesting food is the most energy-consuming body process! Eating less leaves you with more energy to do important things!
3 Drink more water than you have ever thought of drinking. Water refreshes you and makes you more focused. So instead of spending hours drafting and editing your report (for example) you can just do it once properly and use less energy while producing more quality.
4 Don't eat past 8 pm. If you don't, you will sleep better and find that you are rested and energized in the morning (as opposed to sleepy and tired).
5 Move daily. Yes, I'm talking about exercise. You can go to the gym to get blessed, or dance with your partner, or jog. Move more, and you will find you have more energy
.6 Replace food. If you want to crunch something, take a carrot instead of biscuits. Eating healthy means you have less saturated fat and - guess what? - more energy!
