Move to Shake the Morning Daze
Instead of hitting that snooze button for an extra five minutes of sleep that aren’t any more refreshing than the past eight hours, why don’t you pull out that yoga mat and do a few exercises? Even just stretching for five minutes in the morning can help you feel energized and alert. According to the NIFS, this energy boost comes from the increase in oxygen and nutrients exercising gives you. Not only that, but exercising in the morning can give you a nice metabolism boost, too!
Don’t Skip That Meal
You may not feel hungry right after waking up, but did you know skipping breakfast can throw off your body’s rhythm? Eating breakfast will kickstart your metabolism and give you the most important energy boost of the day.

Even if your body wants to reject food in the morning, it’s a good idea to at least eat something, even if it’s just an orange or banana.
Dance, Dance, Dance!
You know that feeling when you’re jamming out in your car to your favorite song on the way to work? Have you ever considered dancing to that song as you’re going around your room getting ready to start your day? Dancing is a great way to get yourself in a good mood before you have to slave away at work or run a bunch of errands. Get motivated, get inspired, and dance like nobody’s watching.
Don’t wake up dreading the day ahead; wake up grateful that you’re alive to see another day. One common tip is to be keep a gratitude journal nearby to write in every morning. Find one thing you’re grateful for and just write a few words about it. It could be your pet, your favorite food, or anything really. It all depends on you.
