Do you occasionally feel low on energy? Yes? Well, you are not the only one. Put down that energy shot! There’s no need to chug crazy canned concoctions or buckets of coffee to get through the day. And better still, that doesn’t mean accepting 3 p.m. drowsiness as unavoidable.
Here are 4 simple steps in which you can energize your mornings “
- Don’t Be Shady – Exposure to sunlight helps you wake up faster, and researchers have found that early exposure to daylight regulates hormones. Hormone imbalances equal fatigue.
- Get Some Lemon Aid – Studies show that drinking hot water with lemon in the morning can boost your metabolism by 30%. Citric acid contains potassium, which is a natural energy booster.
- Take a Cold Shower – Cold water therapy reduces inflammation, boosts dopamine production, and burns lipids. Low dopamine levels can deplete your energy.
- Don’t Skip Breakfast – A protein rich breakfast can regulate your energy levels, so you don’t crash mid morning.
Last tip would for an instant boost of energy would be tapping your thymus with your fingertips for 20 seconds, while slowly and deeply breathing in and out. Although I do not recommend it. Also, speak with your doctor if your fatigue persists.
