The morning sets the mood for the entire day ahead of us. However, whether you’re a morning person or not, we’ve all had those moments when mornings have felt like our worst enemy. It’s tempting to hit snooze all morning long until 12:00 pm sneaks up, leaving none of the morning to do anything productive. Luckily, we’ve gathered five useful tips that will help you feel fresh and energetic as soon as you wake up.
Your body goes without any liquid for several hours when you’re asleep. Waking up dehydrated can make you feel groggy and tired. It’s important to drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up. Drinking water will also get your circulation going in the morning, which will energize you.
Don’t skip out on breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! When you’re asleep, your body enters starvation mode. Even though most people don’t feel hungry right when they wake up, it’s important to fuel your body for energy.
Soak in some sun
Sunlight hits the pineal gland in your brain and reduces melatonin production. You’ll feel more awake and fresh as your brain reduces the chemical that helps you sleep. Try to go outside for a few minutes to absorb that vitamin D and wake you up for the day ahead of you.
Don’t hit that snooze button
You might think that snooze button is doing you a favor and helping you get more sleep, but on the contrary, it makes you feel much worse throughout the day. Once you fall back asleep, you begin to drift off into the beginning of a sleep cycle. Once you wake up in the middle of this sleep cycle it throws your brain off, thus leaving you groggy and tired when you finally get out of bed.
Studies have shown that listening to your favorite music in the morning allows your brain to release large amounts of dopamine. Dopamine is responsible for affecting your emotions and sensations, which can lead you to feel more alert and motivated.
I can’t guarantee that all these different habits will magically turn you into the morning person you’ve always wanted to be, but it might help you get there slowly! Feeling fresh and energetic should be easier if you are committed to variation of these tips.
