## Step 1: Find 24 Hour Recovery Volume

You have to find some mild exercise that is convenient enough that you can do it most every day. It must be intense enough that it gets you breathing. It could involve walking, jogging, an exercise bike, etc. You have to figure out for how long you can do this activity and still completely recover by the next day.

Let’s say you jog for 5 minutes one day. You might feel a little winded, etc. But if you aren’t extra sore or tired the next day, your 24 hour recovery volume is more than five minutes. You could try 8 minutes the next day, then 9 minutes, etc. At some point you will have some idea what that number is.

Say you figure out that the number is 20 minutes. That means that jogging for 20 minutes a day is the easiest way to have energy. You are going to use the jogging to control your furnace. You could jog three times a day for seven minutes. You could jog two times a day for 10 minutes. You don’t have to jog every day necessarily, but this one tool, used a certain times as explained in the furnace article, can almost by itself correct your energy problems which are really metabolism problems.

Alternatively, some people who are less fit can choose to figure out how much activity they have done on average in the past couple months. Let’s say they normally walk 10 minutes a day. They could just keep track of their walking, and start with 60 minutes a week, then increase by about 10% each week.
