There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning feeling as though you don’t want to do anything other than pull the covers back over. The reason for this however is not because you are a lazy person, but rather because of the way in which you live your life and the habits which you are doing, or not doing, that cause you to have such low energy on a morning.
If you are sick and tired of waking up with low energy levels and a groggy feeling, here is what you can do to ensure that you wake up with bags full of energy.
In terms of your alarm clock there are 2 tips which you should employ to ensure that you wake up and get up. The first step is to place your alarm clock away from the bed, or at least out of reach, so that you must get up to switch it off. The second step is to make sure that the alarm is some music which you like rather than the harsh alarm tone. The classic alarm tone is enough to bring fear or dread to anyone, the last thing which you’d want when you just wake up.
When I wake up, the first mission in my mind is to make myself a cup of Joe. I do this for two reasons, the first of course being that caffeine offers a great energy boost to your morning. The second reason why I like to fire up the French press first thing is because the activity of grinding the beans, adding water and using the French press coffee maker is something which gets my brain started and in gear for the day.
Before you go to bed, make sure that you open up our curtains and blinds so that you can let the sun flood into your room on a morning. We are animals after all and the sunlight is one of the best ways to wake up and feel ready for the day ahead.
If you wake up and go to sleep at more or less the same time each night, you can train your brain to unwind when it’s time to sleep, and wake itself up before you do. This kind of routine is one of the best ways to get yourself up and ready for the new day, with bags of energy.
Try drinking some water before you go to bed so that when you wake up, you will feel the need to go to the bathroom, thus forcing you to get up. Equally, when you first wake up, the first thing on your lips should be a glass of water, the perfect way to get your body functions up and running for the new day.
If you are able to employ some of these tactics then you will find that after just a week or so, you will wake up with plenty of energy and no grogginess at all.
