Are you having trouble getting up early in the morning? Don't you feel energetic when you start your day? With a few small changes in your life, you can wake up to a new day more energetically.
Are you a person struggling to wake up in the morning? Maybe you snooze the alarm at least five times before you get out of bed. Maybe you need a big cup of coffee to work before 10:00 in the morning. If all this describes you, keep reading. There are simple ways to feel more energetic in the morning without drinking coffee.
Put your alarm out of reach
Place your alarm or phone away from your bed. This forces you to physically get out of bed to turn off the alarm. It also reduces the possibility of pressing the snooze button.
Let the sunshine come in
Light, especially bright light from the sun, indicates that it is time to wake up. As soon as you stand up, open your blinds and immerse yourself in natural light.
Scented essential oils
Aromatherapy can significantly reduce your sleepiness. Mint and eucalyptus scents can make you feel more alert, focused and stimulated in the morning. The scent of rosemary gives you more mental and physical energy. Citrus odors can reduce stress and increase the body's production of serotonin.
Make your bed
If you want to feel more productive in the morning, the easiest thing to do is to make your bed. It may seem like a small job, but starting your day by making your bed gives you a sense of achievement. This little business will give you a reason to accomplish the rest of the day.
Take a shower
Let us give you a 90-second secret you can do to increase your energy in the morning. Finish your shower with cold water for 30 seconds, then with hot water for 30 seconds and then with cold water for 30 seconds. The rapid change in temperature will increase blood flow and thus stimulate the body and mind.
Add some flavor to your coffee
If you identify yourself as a coffee addict, add two teaspoons of coconut oil or butter to your coffee. Adding healthy fats to your coffee allows caffeine to slowly metabolize and work throughout the day. As a result, you will stay awake and feel energized for longer.
Exercise in the morning is the best way to wake up. Exercise increases endorphins that give you more energy and put you in a better condition. It also speeds up your metabolism and burns more calories. Not only do you feel more energetic, but you also get healthier.
Drink water with lemon
Drinking warm water with lemon in the morning has health benefits. First, it cleans toxins and helps the digestive system. Second, lemon is rich in nutrients such as calcium, potassium and vitamin C. Most importantly, it moisturizes the body and gives a feeling of freshness.
Bananas are an excellent breakfast because the combination of carbohydrates, natural sugars, amino acids and brain-strengthening vitamins in the banana will give you a quick energy boost.
Turn up the music
Listen to positive songs as you start or work. Energizing melodies will blow you up and excite you.
