Do you wake up in the morning feeling tired and groggy? We sit at our desks all day, go home and watch TV or look at our computers, struggle to fall asleep, and wake up feeling worse than before. If you are plagued by fatigue, here are 10 tricks you can try to boost your energy and vitality.
Grab some dried rosemary and crush it up in your hand. You can hold this under your nose, or boil it into a rosemary tea and let the steam from the tea rise up gently over your face. The smell of this herb will help stimulate your mind and give you energy.
2. Drink More Water
Dehydration leads directly to fatigue, so if you’re feeling tired in the middle of the day, try drinking a glass of water. A few other signs of dehydration are bad breath, a bad mood, or cravings for your favorite junk food.
3. Cover Your Face with a Cold Washcloth
Soak a washcloth in icy water, wring it out, and then place the cold cloth over your face. The cool temperature will stimulate your facial muscles and your mind, giving you renewed energy.
4. Get Some Sun
Sitting in the office all day, especially in winter, leads to little sunlight. But this is incredibly bad for our health. Make sure to spend 15 to 20 minutes out in the sun every day. Sunlight boosts energy level, fights seasonal affective disorder, and stimulates vitamin D production in our skin.
5. Go for a walk
It is no secret that sitting at a desk all day is bad for our bodies and our minds. Walking gets you out of your chair, into the sun, and moving your muscles. The exercise will boost your brain’s production of positive neurotransmitters and endorphins.
6. Drink Green Tea
Green tea is an excellent substitute for coffee. The tea boasts cancer fighting antioxidants and has been shown to promote weight loss. For an all-natural energy boost, switch your afternoon coffee for a cup of green tea.
7. Breathe Deep
Deep, mindful breathing can bring energy and positivity into your day. Sit up tall in your chair and inhale slowly, filling your lungs completely. Pause here. Then exhale slowly, pushing out all of the air in your lungs. Repeat a few times.
If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor space at home, head to your local gardening shop and pick up some plants that appeal to you. Gardening is a form of exercise that will also boost your mood. Digging in the dirt can help fight stress in the body and promote the release of positive neurotransmitters in your mind.
9. Turn Off Electronics – Especially Before Bedtime
Looking at the blue light of our electronic screens stimulates the brain and tells it to stay awake. To improve the quality of your sleep, turn off all your electronics at least one hour before bedtime. Try reading a book or meditating before you hit the hay.
10. Get Enough Sleep
It may seem obvious, but so many of us don’t get enough sleep. Try moving your bedtime ahead by a half an hour and see what a difference this can make to your overall energy levels!
