We spend one-third of our life sleeping. Most of us have troubles falling asleep or waking in the morning. If you are not feeling energized in the morning, here are six tips that will help you.
1- A morning person
A lot of people have a hard time waking up in the morning because they don’t feel energized. Some people say ” I am not a morning person.” It is a false belief.
If I would tell you that if you wake up at 5 am every day for the next three months. If I give you 1 million dollars, would you do that? Of course, you will.
Get rid of that thought that you are not a morning person.
You could start to hold the thought that you are competent in the morning, afternoon and nighttime.
2-Prepare yourself before you go to bed
You have to do certain things before you go to bed to feel energized in the morning. How you go to bed influences the way you wake up.
Make sure that 3-4 hours before you go to bed make sure you do not have chocolate.
You are not drinking caffeine beverages and not having anything sugary.
The reason is that when you consume caffeine, it makes you feel alerted and is hard to sleep.
Get some meals that are full of green vegetables, have some food meal’s that is full of water to hydrate yourself.
3-Find the light
Brain secretes melatonin, which is a hormone critical for regulating your sleep.
When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin making you more sleepy.
When it is light, production of melatonin drops. You should expose yourself to light in the morning to decrease melatonin production and wake your body up.
If you have to wake up in the darkness, turning your room’s light on will help.
4-Expose yourself to cold water
It can activate components of the brain responsible for regulating wakefulness and making you alerted.
Mild dehydration decreases alertness, mental increases fatigue. In the morning drink a glass of water to replenish your fluids. To fight off that tired feeling and don’t forget to drink water during the day to stay alert.
6-Eat a healthy breakfast
Eat a breakfast high in fiber and carbohydrates. Your breakfast should also contain omega-3, calcium, and vitamin D.
A powerful combination that burns fat and keeps blood sugar (and energy) levels steady.
