There’s no debate by anyone that the best way to feel more active, to get that instant jolt of energy is by drinking a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Its active ingredient caffeine, helps us to get the cobwebs out of our brains, as it alerts us to prepare for the busy day ahead. What most will admit however, is that all of this caffeine intake might not be the best solution for them. Realize that there are more natural ways to inject this energy when feeling sluggish, while becoming more enthused the entire day. Along with drinking coffee, there are a variety of other ways to inject motivation in your life.
10. Cold Shower
Some choose to take a cold shower immediately after waking up, which offers natural benefits. To some, doing so might be too drastic. What it does is sends a wake up call to the bodily system. Once we feel the cold water, we begin to take deeper breaths, which increases our oxygen intake, which increases the heart rate. What results is a chain reaction which releases a rush of blood throughout the body. So if you’re feeling especially groggy, try cold shower therapy. Cold water is also known to tighten the skin, produce stronger more shinier hair, while reducing stress.
9. Just Laugh
What laughter does is injects physical changes in the body. We’ve all experienced it ourselves, that what spontaneous laughter does is naturally reduces stress while improving mood. This results in converting the doldrums into energy. So when you’re feeling sluggish, watch some funny videos, read some funny memes, anything that will make you laugh out loud, this especially first thing in the morning. Make sure you always leave home with a smile.
8. Lets Dance
Dancing has similar effects as exercise does on the body, as it injects energy which improves blood circulation, which provides the feeling of being more alive and active. So if you don’t think cardio is your thing, just put on some music and start dancing. Not only does it make you more alert, it helps you lose weight as well. So wake up and dance in the morning, or dance the night away.
