10 Hacks That Will Make You Feel Energized In The Morning

Are you the type of person who struggles to wake up the morning? Maybe you press snooze at least five times before dragging yourself out of bed. Perhaps you need a large cup of coffee in order to function before 10 AM. If this describes you, keep reading. There are simple ways to feel more energized in the morning that don't involve a double shot of espresso. 

1. Keep your alarm out of reach 

Put your alarm or phone far from your bed. This will force you to physically get out of bed to turn it off. It will also make you less likely to hit the snooze button. 

2. Make your bed 

If you want to feel more productive in the morning, the easiest thing to do is make your bed. It may seem like a small task, but starting your day by making your bed gives you a sense of accomplishment. This will set you up for success for the rest of the day. 

3. Do the shower trick 

There's a 90-second trick that you do to boost your energy in the mornings. At the end of your shower, simply blast yourself with cold water for 30 seconds, followed by hot water for 30 seconds, and then finish with cold water for a final 30 seconds. The rapid change in temperature will increase blood flow and stimulate the body and mind. 

4. Fatten up your coffee  

If you depend on coffee to function, mix your coffee with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil or butter. Adding healthy fats to your coffee will make the caffeine metabolize slowly and work throughout the day. As a result, you'll stay alert for longer. 

5. Exercise 

Exercising in the morning is the best way to wake yourself up. Working out boosts endorphins, which gives you more energy and puts you in a better mood. You'll also jumpstart your metabolism and burn more calories. Not only will you feel more energized, but you'll be healthier too. 

6. Drink a lemon elixir 

There are several health benefits to drinking warm lemon water in the morning. First, it flushes out toxins and aids the digestive system. Second, lemon is rich in nutrients like calcium, potassium, and vitamin C. Most importantly, it hydrates and oxygenates the body. 

7. Eat a banana

Bananas are an excellent morning staple because the fruit's combination of complex carbs, natural sugar, amino acids, and brain-boosting vitamins will give you quick energy boost. 

8. Jam out 

Play upbeat music as you're getting ready or commuting to work. The energizing tunes will pump you up and get you excited about the day.  

9. Get some sunlight

Light, especially bright light from the sun, signals the body that it's time to wake up. As soon as you get up, open your blinds and let in the natural light. 

10. Smell essential oils 

Aromatherapy can significantly reduce your grogginess. Peppermint and eucalyptus scents can make you feel more alert, focused, and stimulated in the morning. The smell of rosemary can jumpstart your bran, giving you more mental and physical energy. Citrus can reduce stress and boost the body's production of serotonin. In fact, studies have shown that sniffing the skin of an orange can increase alertness and reduce anxiety.
