This episode is all about how to feel better fast. We get energy from food, exercise, and from our thoughts.

If you self-sabotage, though you have good intentions – or you truly want something and you’re following science-proven steps but not getting there - you may even be gaining or holding weight when you’ve tested, and trained and tracked but you’re stuck… or you simply want to pull everything you can into the light of summer to boost your energy and drop your stress level… then tune in here daily for the next 10 days. We’re releasing a short special segment every day so you can boost your energy and feel better fast. 

Feel better fast for instant energy with this short episode and exercise from Christy Mattoon.

What is energy?       

The science of ATP and mitochondria vs.Vibration of energy you feel

Ask, can I feel it?How do you feel? What is a low energy vs. high 

The exercise Christy uses for instant energy:

First, develop awareness:

What do you want to change?

What are you doing now?


  • What do you want to do about it?
  • What actions do you want to change?

Write it down.

Make a decision about what you want to keep, and what you want to change.

Imagine yourself more powerful:

Who is your superhero?

What’s your posture when you physically feel your superpowers?

Get instant energy:

Assuming a different posture, a powerful stance gives you an instant shot of oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine – all feel good hormones – that provide instant energy.

This posturing exercise works with athletes and performance. Swimmers using a superhero posture image hold their chest open and core strong making them better able to maintain a form in the water that enhances ability to go faster with less energy. It can work with you too for coping with every day stressors.

Coming up tomorrow in this series: we know what energy is- and that we can feel it- we’re exploring how can you use it to feel better and train it into your system.
