You wake to the alarm, still half asleep, you hit snooze… You repeat…
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Your zombie like schlepp to your kitchen to get your morning jolt of coffee is a prerequisite to any pleasant conversation, or even fully opened eyes.
While this may be effective, it has become an addiction. A full scale dependency.
There is another way. A natural way. Actually a few. Let’s take a look at some natural, healthy alternatives to coffee.
1. Stretch, Walk, Move Around:
This may seem like a tall order to some, but you can start while you are in bed. Stretching will start the blood flowing and alert the body that it is time to wake up. Once you are up, walk around a bit, keep stretching. By the time you make it to the kitchen, you will feel much more awake than even a minute earlier.
2. Drink Green Tea:
By replacing your morning coffee with green tea, you are not only getting a more steady, less jittery morning boost, but you are also reaping the many other benefits, including anti-cancer properties, a boost to your immune system, and weight management just to name a few.
3. Eat Something:
Yes, it is the most important meal of the day.
Breakfast kick-starts your entire body into action. There are many options to get your body and mind ready for the day. From juicing fresh fruits and vegetables, to a handful of berries and nuts, or even a protein and fat rich breakfast can make the difference in your energy levels for the day.
First Meal Bonus: Eating a good breakfast is the absolute best way to avoid the vending machine throughout the day.
