Stores today feature a multitude of products that promise to give people energy. Some of these may be helpful, but most of them are quick-fixes that ultimately leave people more fatigued. Long-lasting energy comes from "what you eat, your exercise patterns, how much and how well you sleep, how you deal with stress, and what your emotional life is like." Health writer Daryn Eller discusses these factors and how you can enhance your energy levels in her new book, Power Up: 101 Ways To Boost Your Energy.

She offers a quick and simple quiz that helps readers zero in on their particular energy thief. From that, readers can go directly to the section of the book that will be most helpful to them.

Fitness information includes "energy-enhancing strategies," how to avoid "workout drag," and a discussion of the benefits of yoga and tai chi.
