When you sit with bad posture, you reduce the amount of oxygen you breathe in. Slouching pulls on your muscles and can exhaust you. Sit right up and breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Notice the difference.
No Early Alarms
Your brain is so amazing. It goes through cycles of heavy and light sleep. Most people set snooze alarms because they do not trust themselves to wake up. What happens when you keep hitting snooze is that you each time you wake up, you zap your energy. It is best to set a routine where you set your alarm for when you actually need to get up. Try to go right to your window and let the sunlight in your room. Get up and walk around or pace and wake yourself up. Getting right up and walking around for 3-5 minutes can help you raise your energy level.
Dump the Coffee
Coffee has some health and stimulant benefits. Green Tea is a far better mental stimulator. Coffee can lead you on a rollercoaster where you crash after your caffeine high. Green Tea can give you the feeling of energy without feeling grumpy from the energy decline later. If you can’t let go of your bean addiction then try cutting your regular coffee with decaf. The less caffeine you take in, the less of an energy dive you will have later on in the day.
Vitamin B Complex
Taking Sublingual Vitamin B complex can help you buffer stress and naturally support your energy levels. Another option is taking sublingual Vitamin B12. B complex vitamins are necessary to maintain a healthy nervous system. It is important to eat when supplementing with Vitamin B so you do not feel nauseous.
Take a Nap
Eight hours after you wake up, it would be ideal if you took a brief nap. A brief nap for as little as 15 minutes, not lasting longer than 25 minutes, can help you feel refreshed. Do not sleep longer than 25 minutes because you will move into a heavy sleep cycle. I once read an article about Sophia Lauren. She described that she rested when she needed to and as long as she needed to. Napping not only lends benefits to your energy but is such a stress reducer it lends to anti-aging. We know how Sophia has remained ageless throughout the years. We may not all have the luxury to nap as long as affluent movie stars, yet, after a hard day you deserve to be pampered like one.
