We all want to wake up at the beginning of the day, ready to make things happen, but that can be easier said than done.
If you find yourself getting a slow start to each and every day, you may be wondering how you can change things to start waking up feeling energized every day. Here are some tips to help you out:
Enjoy your morning beverage
In the morning, you may like to drink a cup of coffee, or maybe you prefer yerba mate or matcha.
Whatever your morning beverage of choice, when it has a kick of caffeine or helps to provide energy, it can be a plus to get you feeling energized for your day.
Shop around for the best options for your morning drink, whether that’s ordering a box of stick pack coffee or you prefer an order of green tea. When you make sure you order enough, you’ll never run out of the stuff that gets you out of bed.
Get moving in the morning
If you want to get that extra boost of feeling good for your day, make an effort to do some activity every morning.
That may be a walk with the dog, or maybe it’s a long run as you train for a marathon.
It doesn’t matter what you do; just make sure you get some kind of exercise first thing if you want to start your day feeling energized. Join a gym or buy a bike—do whatever feels and works best for you.
Make sure you get good quality sleep
If you want to wake up feeling great, how you sleep will have an impact on that. This may look like making an effort to get to bed early every night, even when you’re tempted to “watch one more episode.”
It may look like taking sleep supplements that help you drift off if you have insomnia. Meditation before bed can get you ready, or using a sound machine may be right for you.
Practicing gratitude can be more energizing than one would think. When you take time to think about all the good in your life, it makes it easier for you to face the day with an energy that you may not otherwise find if you focus on more challenging aspects or thoughts.
While life is full of difficult moments, taking time to be grateful can help you face them with a pep in your step. Take out a gratitude journal as you sip your morning black tea and enjoy moments of peace to get you started on your day.
Partying can be fun, and sharing drinks with friends is an enjoyable pastime, but if you find that you’re often waking up feeling less than energized, take a look at where you’re spending your time and how much alcohol you’re drinking.
Alcohol can be detrimental to your health when you have it in excess, and it can also disrupt your sleep quality, leading to fatigue and low energy.
Consider working with a counselor if you need support in managing your alcohol consumption. If you’re looking to feel more energized every morning, consider your nighttime habits.
From the coffee you drink to how you move in the morning, there are plenty of ways to start your day with your best foot forward.
The thing about energy is that it’s a result of many different habits, so make an effort to improve your quality of sleep, your exercise routines, and even your self-talk in the mornings.
You’ll be amazed at how good you can feel throughout your day when you take the time to take care of yourself in every way.
