How to Get the Most Energy Out of Your Day

Hello, lovelies!

Mornings may be tiring. Sometimes crawling out of a comfy, warm bed is an achievement in itself. If you wake up with a mindset geared towards productivity, you will often find your energy levels peaking. For myself, I like to face the day with positive thoughts and a productive mindset. Today, I share a guide to help you get the most out of your day (even if you didn’t get enough sleep!)

Wake up at the same time each day

Even if you sleep at different times each night, you should set a consistent wake-up time. This helps your body sync to a specific sleep schedule. I wake later on the weekends than during the weekday. I try to set my wake up time between 6:30 and 7 AM on weekdays. This lets my body acquaint to a set schedule. If I wake earlier or later, I notice my energy levels are lower.

Drink water throughout the day

Water is a staple to our health. While I enjoy my caffeine fix, I sip water throughout the day to stay hydrated. Consuming enough water each day keeps me alert and focused. I prefer to sip water throughout the day instead of consuming large quantities at once.

Snacks are a good idea

Eating small snacks between meals helps keep your blood sugar levels even. If I eat a heavy meal, I don’t always follow this myself. I try to eat at least two snacks each day – one between breakfast and lunch; and one between lunch and dinner. Small snacks keep my energy up and fuels my body. It’s ideal to eat healthy snacks  but I do sneak in an occasional piece (or two) of dark chocolate.

Night time routine 

A few steps at night help you unwind. This contributes to a better, and brighter morning. I keep my room dark to get a deeper sleep. Other steps in my nighttime routine include reserving my bedtime for sleep.

What steps do you take to energize your day?

  1. This post couldn’t have come at a better time. I literally just blogged about not being able to sleep. Thanks for the tips! I’m going to use some to power through the day today on only a few hours of sleep and then try and get into a better routine.
