Looking for an energetic morning? (Part II)

This is some other things I found that could be helpful to boost the energy in the morning for a good productive day. So go ahead make some of these tweaks to recharge your batteries and power.

1- Have bran for breakfast: Eating a morning meal rich in fiber may make you more alert during the day.  Fiber helps slow down the absorption of food in the stomach, which keeps your blood sugar levels steady to sustain energy levels for a longer period of time.

2-  Order a small latte and sip it slowly: Experts say not to rely on caffeine too much. Having small doses of caffeine every couple of hours may help keep you awake, alert and focused for longer than a single jumbo would. When you quickly drink a large amount of coffee, the caffeine peaks in your bloodstream  much sooner than when it’s spread out over time.

3- Eat more often: Yes it clearly says eat more often not eat more just more OFTEN. Eating small small meals frequently during the day (every 3/4hours) helps keeping your blood sugar up  so you don’t experience energy crashes.

4- Gulp some water: A recent study of athletes found that 92% felt fatigued after limiting fluids and water-rich foods for 15 hours they also had lapses in memory and had difficulty concentrating. Aim to drink every hour or two so you don’t feel thirsty (I personally drink around 5bottles of water a day otherwise I might die :p)

5- Take a 10 minute walk: A 10 min walk would help you go on with your day, it would help clear your mind and be more confident. It also help have fewer aches and climb stairs more easily.

6- Cue up your iPod: Consider listening to music while working (not something that makes you want to get up and dance on your desk though :p) A study shows that employees who use headphones are 10% more productive.

Hope these help. Let me know if there’s anything missing on this list 😉

Cheers xoxo
