In this article, we’ll share five simple things you can do to feel more energized in the morning. If you apply these five things in your life, you will freshed at work and at whatever else you do.
Reduce blue light exposure in the evenings
Blue light is a specific frequency range, or wavelength, from the visible spectrum. Blue light from the sun provides wakefulness, but our monitors and devices also emit an artificial blue light. And when we use our devices in the evening, this blue light tricks our pineal gland into thinking it’s daylight. Our pineal gland is responsible for producing melatonin, and when the brain thinks its daylight it doesn’t produce sufficient melatonin. When that happens, our sleep is negatively affected.
So reducing blue light in the evenings will help your pineal gland produce the right amount of melatonin so you can have a more rejuvenating night’s rest. To reduce blue light, avoid looking at screens for a few hours before bedtime and wear blue-light blocking glasses.
You’ll wake up feeling more energized and ready to start your day.
Drink pure water
While most people start their morning with a cup of coffee or tea, if you want to beat fatigue and feel more energized, switch to water. Our bodies are dehydrated in the morning and coffee only furthers additional dehydration.
According to numerous experts, increasing your water intake will help reduce fatigue and help you overcome laziness.
Our bodies are about 75 percent fluid, and if your body has about 2 percent less water, it results in dehydration and fatigue. According to the research, roughly 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrate. There are a lot of varieties of colas that will make you not want to drink water, resulting in dehydration. Most people drink more beverages than water, and it results in great levels of dehydration. So, first thing in the morning, drink a glass of purified, room temperature water and notice how you feel.
Upgrade a more comfortable mattress
The quality of your mattress and how it’s designed does affect your sleep. If you’re a back sleeper, a firmer mattress is usually preferable while side sleepers need more responsiveness and pressure relief. Stomach sleepers need softer mattresses.

Stretch and move your body
As the law of thermodynamics states: a body at rest tends to stay at rest (and vice versa). It doesn’t take a lot of movements and stretching to get your blood flowing. A 5 to 10 minute stretching routine in the morning can loosen your body up.
And another 5 minutes of stretching in the evening can loosen your muscles and help your body relax before you sleep. Both of these practices will help you feel more energized in the morning.
Pursue your interests
If you’re working at a job you don’t like, you’re going to be prone to lethargy and laziness. There’s no way around it. Find work and hobbies that interest. What do you want to learn? How do you want to develop your skills? A musical instrument? Writing? Dancing? It doesn’t matter what it is as long as you enjoy doing it. Purse what you enjoy and you’ll feel more energized than you can imagine.
