Having enough energy to make everyone happy is a constant struggle, especially during the winter where it’s cold, the days are shorter, and you’d rather just hurry home and dive into bed after work.
The best way to deal with this is to take advantage of the morning, waking up as energized as possible and ready to take on the world’s challenges. The Huffington Post discovered some interesting findings when it comes to waking up feeling energized. Check them out:
Do Something Creative
Gene Caballero, a personal trainer and small business owner, claims that the best way to wake up with energy is to do something creative that you enjoy, helping you be more productive through the day. Make some time in the morning, right after you wake up, to do something that fuels your creativity and that makes you feel good, which will reverberate through your day.
Have A Big Breakfast
This should come as no surprise since your parents have been telling you for forever that breakfast is the most important meal. Your meal should be balanced and healthy, giving you energy and stabilizing your blood sugar levels. To prevent a crash in energy later, pack up on carbohydrates.
Everyone knows you’re supposed to have eight glasses of water a day but a lot of people don’t do this. Drinking the right amount of water will leave you feeling energized, hydrated, and in a better mood. You should also moderate your drinking of sugary beverages, sodas and others, which might dehydrate you depending on your blood sugar levels.
It’s very important to sleep 7 or 8 hours a night, something that a lot of people struggle with. If you have trouble sleeping then power off devices before bedtime and avoid blue light, which is really rough on your eyes and sleep cycles.
