Energize Your Mornings

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.

    • Yes Manohar, they indeed help. A cold shower in the morning does more than wake you up and improve your circulation. The cold and warm stimuli constrict and dilate your blood vessels, which strengthens your immune system. Studies have also shown that cold water reduces sore muscles and supports recovery after sports. Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

    • Hi Olivia, If you find yourself dreading waking up each morning to start your day, revamping your current morning routine might be just what you need to turn your mornings around. Instead of going through your tired old routine–or neglecting one all together–and rushing out the door, try these methods to refresh your morning and in turn, shift the energy of your day.

    • Thank you. I am glad you liked it. The easiest way to feel more refreshed overnight is, well, overnight! A solid nights sleep is the key to restoring the body, reducing stress, and boosting overall health. Aim to be in bed by 9pm and avoid staring at those blue lights too close to bed time. Grab your favorite book, eye mask, and turn up that rain machine (I can’t sleep without mine)! Also try not to set an alarm unless you have to. Just fall into deep, uninterrupted sleep.

    • Hi Neha, that is a very good practice. Drinking warm lemon water can help get your digestive system get moving in the morning without overloading it. Plus, efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation, so you won’t have to worry about the acid in lemons giving you heartburn. Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

    • Hi, thank you for stopping by my blog. Warm lemon water in the morning helps kickstart the digestion process for the day. According to Ayurvedic philosophy, choices that you make regarding your daily routine either build up resistance to disease or tear it down. Ayurveda invites us to get a jump-start on the day by focusing on morning rituals that work to align the body with nature’s rhythms, balance the doshas and foster self-esteem alongside self-discipline. Thank you.

  1. Hi. Nice post. If I may share my secret too whenever I feel low or lack of motivation, I always practice yoga and meditation early morning or after my work in the afternoon.😊 Yoga does wonder in terms of emotional distress and when my body feels tired or something. Thank you for sharing your post.🙏

  2. Hi! I have found the days I don’t eat breakfast I do much better in the morning! I’m alter and just awake! I get a little hungry around 10:30am and have something small. Maybe fruit and a granola bar or something and I good until 2pm and I need to eat again. But if I eat breakfast, I’m dragging so bad. Even if I have a real healthy breakfast I’m so exhausted 💤 that I cannot hardly make it through the day. My stomach will even start to hurt. I love breakfast too but I can’t eat it.
    Is there a reason why this is?

    • Hi, Skipping the morning meal can throw off your body’s rhythm of fasting and eating. When you wake up, the blood sugar your body needs to make your muscles and brain work their best is usually low. If you don’t eat it, you aren’t likely to get all of the nutrients your body needs. A change in what you eat everything Morning might help you stay active throughout the day. Hope this helps. Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Cold shower therapy is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that has numerous health benefits such as treating anxiety and depression, improving circulation and toning skin.
