Have More Energy seems like it was made for me as I am perpetually tired and lazy. This book takes a deep dive into the subject of energy—what it is, where it comes from, and how to get it as well as how it’s so incredibly important in our lives and how it really is the basis of everything.
What I personally found most valuable was the section on how to beat procrastination, something that I’ve fought within myself for many years. Also really helpful, Have More Energy goes into the importance of exercise, nutrition, and sleep, specifically how to make changes to get a better night’s rest.
Not only does this book delve into the physical reasons for energy depletion, it also goes into great detail about the emotional reasons, especially the specific ways we think and what we can do about it, plus how to deal with people who bring us down. Overall, a highly useful resource with tons of valuable advice and information!
What's most impressive about this book is the wide variety of strategies it covers for increasing your energy and productivity levels. From lifestyle changes like improving your sleep habits and thought patterns, to dietary changes like utilizing the glycemic index to control blood glucose levels, you will likely find something here that will work for you. For me personally, I found the chapter on the paradox of choice most useful, as I tend to examine too many options when I make decisions, resulting in my ultimately not choosing any.
The author encompassed a broad range of subjects, from mental states to human physiology. For example, he explains how your energy levels are heavily affected by your blood sugar levels (this explains why desserts sometimes make me so tired). Other subjects are cognitive distortions, and the quality of your sleep. Great!

Wow! This book had a lot to say about energy and the many elements of how enery is used and reused. It is also very wordy, so you may need to look up a few words if you are not familiar with the subject matter like I was. Overall, this was a good read, there is a lot of information.
