3 Ways to Feel More Energized After a Sleepless Night

Hello, lovelies!

Do you ever feel perpetually tired, no matter how long you slept the night before? Trying to fall asleep at night can feel dreadful. If you find yourself hitting the ‘Snooze’ button after a full night of rest, here are some tips for you! (I like to use these tips myself after Daylight Savings Time to compensate for the lost hour of sleep.)

1. Don’t hit the ‘Snooze’ button

I know, it’s tempting! Each time you hit the snooze button, you never know how your body will react – you may fall asleep, but not always. Instead of reaching for the ‘Snooze’ button when your alarm sounds try getting out of bed immediately and reach for a glass of water to refresh yourself.

2. Let the sunshine in 

Inviting sunlight into your window, or getting outside, can help you feel more awake. Bright light helps your brain stay more awake in the morning. A brisk walk in the morning is usually enough to wake you, but if that is not an option, a bright light is a great substitute.

3. Try a cup of coffee

This is my favourite method of waking in the morning. Coffee contains caffeine, which acts to block sleep-inducing chemicals in your brain. A moderate amount of coffee is usually enough to increase your alertness throughout the day. I often start my day with an 8-ounce cup of coffee.

What activities do you engage in to increase your energy in the morning?
