Sometimes we do too much during the weekend, and by the time Monday comes we are drained. This leads to a draining week, which turns into a cycle of a cranky person. Some people have a hard time going to sleep at night, and their days are not the most energetic because of insomnia. Time changes and hectic days can also lead to sleepless nights and uninspiring days. Whether you can’t sleep, or your on a vicious draining cycle, here are some useful tips to help you out. These are 5 ways to help you feel energized in the morning, according to Raj Dasgupta, MD, FAASM, assistant professor of clinical medicine at Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California.
Take A Nap
Naps are suggested to take around lunch time. But do not get carried away, do a smooth 20 minutes to recharge.
Get Off Ya Phone
When you’re tired, that’s the last thing you should be doing. Dr. Dasgupta says, “There are other things you can do with that energy, and you only have a limited amount when you’re sleep deprived.”
Force The Happy
When you’re tired, everything pisses you off. You can’t let that affect your judgement tho. Dr. Dasgupta says that instead of allowing being tired mess up your mood, think positive.
Don't Hit The Snooze Button
“The snooze button is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” You ever fall back to sleep and say you’re gonna wake up in 5 minutes, then an hour later you wake up surprised? Just stay up.
Fall Back On The Caffeine
“Caffeine is something that will give you that alerting type of feeling when you take it, but there’s always a threshold,” he says. “[If] you drink too much too quickly, you’ll get all the side effects of caffeineand not the benefits of being alert.”
