When we say “energy boosting,” we mean feeling stronger, more confident, happier, sexier, and more content with your life right now.
There are so many energy enhancing products available to you nowadays.
Just stroll through the aisles of any pharmacy or “health food” store to see a multitude of supplements, powders, drinks and pills that make all sorts of promises.
The problem is, ordinary, energy boosting products are often filled with chemicals and synthetic ingredients you'd never want floating around in your body.
Switching to 100% natural ways to boost your energy means harnessing ancient remedies that your ancestors used— that are both healthy for your body and the planet.
Here are a few things simple (yet transformational) ways to to cleanse and energise your body naturally. It’s so doable, and the results of looking and feeling better are worth it.
1. LOOK INTO THE SUNLIGHT
A dose of morning sunlight reinforces your natural circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle). Exposing your eyes to morning sunlight sends hormone-balancing signals to your brain and helps you feel energised.
When you wake up, open your blinds and look outside. Ten to 15 minutes of sunlight on your retina each morning (before 7.30am is best) impacts both energy and sleep (more about sleep in tip #5). The perfect incentive for getting up early and watching the sunrise.
2. SIP LEMON AND WATER
Drinking a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice on an empty stomach aids in flushing out toxins and cleanses your liver. It also stimulates digestion, reduces inflammation and increases metabolism. All of which help to stabilise your digestive system, boost energy and balance your hormones.
Jennifer Aniston starts every morning with a cup of water with lemon and quality time for herself. Squeeze half a lemon into warm or room temperature water and sip while you watch the sunrise (see tip #1).
3. MOVE FOR 15 MINUTES
Fifteen minutes of rest-based exercise (push until you can't, rest until you can), three times a week boosts your metabolism, which in turn balances hormones. Stretch or walk on alternative days. Regular walking and spending time in nature helps to regulate your stress hormone, cortisol.
4. BALANCE FROM THE INSIDE
Drink an anti-inflammatory and energising Make My Day smoothie or latte. A daily dose of these 100% organic, ancient remedies and invigorating spices helps your body adapt to everyday stresses. It's addictive! In a good way.
5. YOUR "ALL ABOUT ME" MOMENT
Congratulations, you've triggered your internal clock, flushed out toxins, cleansed your digestive tract and moved your body. The next five minutes belong to you. Sit down with your energising and healing blend. Spend a few moments, manifesting your vision for the fabulous day ahead.
Women shouldn’t have to be slaves to dozens of different makeup products—especially in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond.
You should be able to simplify your makeup routine, and pare down to just a few items that allow you to look your best. That’s why our late founder, Cindy Joseph, originally created BOOM! and our line of three creamy cosmetic sticks—known as “Boomsticks”—that can easily replace everything in your makeup bag.
Jennifer Aniston is a BOOM lover!
BOOM! is the sound of a revolution in cosmetics. Whereas other cosmetic companies are constantly adding products, we are taking them away.
While other skin care and makeup companies carry “anti-aging” products, BOOM! is the only company that is “PRO-AGE.” And we are not the only ones who think age is beautiful.
Jennifer Aniston believes in aging gracefully and not overdoing it on the makeup. When asked by Self Magazine what is in her purse when she leaves for the day, she said, “Boomstick Color: It’s an all-in-one stain for eyes, cheeks and lips that’s so much fun.”
“There is this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless,” said Aniston. “I also understand that age is kind of awesome... Don’t over-product — that’s the other thing.”
THEY ARE EXCLUSIVELY SOLD ON THE BOOM WEBSITE.
The Boom products come in identical white tubes that fit in the palm of your hand. Boomstick Color, a sheer berry for cheeks, brow bone, eyes, lips, forehead, neck and decollete; Boomstick Glimmer, a sheer iridescent champagne for the sides of the eye, eyelids, cheekbones, shoulders and decollete; Boomstick Glo, an olive oil and beeswax moisturizer for lips, cuticles, around the eyes, and anywhere else you can use quick moisturizing touch-ups.
Our late founder, Cindy Joseph, created our original Boom cosmetics and skin care line. As a makeup artist for 27 years, Cindy had unique insight into exactly how to bring out every woman’s natural beauty at every age. Cindy always said: “As women age, looking fresh, rather than made up, is the key.”
“The biggest makeup mistake that middle-aged women make is putting on too much under eye concealer,” Cindy used to say. “At home, it might look OK, but in the daylight, it just looks like a bunch of gunk under your eyes. The older you get, the less makeup you should wear. It ’s not a blank canvas anymore.”
“By far this is the best ‘make-up’ for women over 40. I feel the need to brighten up just a little. Time is showing on my face, which is beautiful, but a splash of Boom is the perfect accompaniment of a wonderful life.” — Susan
