I feel sooooooo fatigued. I have some energy in the morning, but I know I should have more energy than I do now. I am in my 20s and I could not imagine having less energy than I do now. I don't want supplements or foods, I would rather have some sort of practice or exercise to help build energy? Suggestions?

Doing breathing exercises help to increase energy, as does a brisk walk and some stretching with breathing. Building energy is something that is multifaceted and stems from your emotional health, physical health, toxic load, and endocrine balance. Food plays a big part in how your energy gets cultivated.

Its not only important to get 71/2 - 8hrs of sleep every night it must be uninterrupted. This usually occurs from sleep disordered breathing. Yuo may want to consider a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea or UARS. If positive this can be addressed w/ a CPAP device or a dental appliance
Hi, first a few questions:
Do you drink caffeine?
Do you get enough sleep?
If you drink caffeine, stop. It's allowing your body to become dependent on it and not learn how to develop it's own source of energy. If you are going to drink a cup of caffeine, wait for 90 minutes after you wake up. Give your body a chance to produce it's own cortisol first.
Sleep is key. It's best to go to bed around the same time every night if you can swing it and get a solid 8 hours of sleep. If that's not happening, I'd focus on that.
That said, yes, exercise will absolutely energize you! Do something aerobic: a hike, fast walk, run, bike ride, dance class every day (if possible) or do it at the gym. This will absolutely help!
