Could You Enjoy More Energy In The Morning?

Oh, what a beautiful morning. Is this a feeling that you have trouble getting into? Are you one of the many, many people that spends the first two hours of the day yearning for the bed? It’s not an uncommon problem, but it is a problem, as it can affect your productivity and ability to meet goals for the whole day. Here, we’re going to look at how to give yourself a more energetic start to the day.

Wake up at first alarm

It’s all too tempting to hit the snooze on your alarm or even to set up multiple alarms in the evening before you go to bed but, to put it simply, wavering in and out of sleep like that is awful for your energy levels. What’s more, you can time your sleep so that you wake up at the shallowest part of the REM sleep cycle. With the right sleep cycle tools, you can make sure you don’t interrupt the deepest parts of your sleep, which is often the root of that awful groggy feeling in the morning.

Get a good breakfast

Don’t skip breakfast. It’s as simple as that. Your breakfast kicks your metabolism into gear, which gets your body converting food into energy. If you don’t start your metabolism, you don’t start getting that energy. A high-fiber, wholegrain breakfast (with a little sugar) can be a great start to the day.

Have a drink to go with it

The very first thing you should do in your morning is pouring yourself a glass of water and splash some on your face while you’re at it. Dehydration comes easily in the morning and fatigue is one of the clearest symptoms. Follow it up with a decent tea for energy. A little caffeine doesn’t hurt anybody and gives you the boost that you need in the morning to get off to a flying start.

Get a quick exercise in

As soon as you wake up, perform some simple stretches to shake out the physical aches in your joints and increase the circulation throughout your limbs, which will help you get things moving a lot more easily. Stimulate the body by doing some quick exercise, whether it’s a walk, a few jumping jacks, some pushups, or otherwise. A morning yoga session can be a great way to hit both targets at once.

Go outside

A change in environment can stimulate your brain, getting things working much better and getting you ready for the day ahead. What’s more, the body needs sunlight to get the circadian rhythm started, which plays an important role in your metabolism. Furthermore, sunlight gets your serotonin production started, which improves not just your energy in the day but how good your sleep is at night, as well.

With the tips above, you can make sure that your body is kicking into high gear as soon as possible so that you can have a more productive and much better-feeling day.
