How to Increase Energy Without Increasing Caffine

We’ve all been in that situation.
When my alarm goes off in the morning, I don’t want to get out of bed. The feeling of being in a “3 p.m. slump” and reaching for another cup of coffee. The feeling of “wanting to travel for a run, but yet eager to slumber.”
We’re all looking for a quick cure to boost our energy levels so we can get through the day. Sure, you may gulp an energy drink in the hopes of reviving yourself, but in actuality, your sudden vigor will wear off sooner rather than later. You may become a more energy efficient athlete who feels more like the Energizer Bunny than the walking dead with a little adjusting.
Sleep
It appears to be a no-brainer, right? You’ll have greater energy during the day if you get more sleep each night. If you don’t get enough sleep, you’ll be exhausted the next day. Your body regenerates itself as you sleep. This is when the “magic” occurs. Turn off all electronics at least 30 minutes before bedtime for a more comfortable sleep. And don’t go for your phone if you wake up in the middle of the night. One of the worst things for sleep is the light emitted by a screen. To prevent the temptation of browsing through your social media feed, keep your phone across the room.
Increase Your Water Consumption
Fatigue is one of the indicators that your body is dehydrated. Make water your go-to beverage throughout the day. Staying hydrated keeps you awake and reduces your desire for that caffeine fix around 3 p.m. If plain water isn’t your thing, consider fruit-infused or flavored seltzer water for a little extra flavor without the additional sugars.
Laugh a lot.
A big belly laugh or chuckle can instantly lift your spirits and increase your vitality. Laughing may rapidly boost your energy levels, whether you’re watching a funny movie or hanging out with family and friends. Your face becomes brighter, and your heart becomes lighter as a result. If you’re in a funk and need a caffeine boost, look up a funny video on YouTube and laugh your heart out.
Consume foods that will provide you with energy.
Keeping your energy levels up can be as simple as eating a variety of foods with protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats at meals and snacks. Carbs will provide fuel for your body, while protein will keep you fuller (and more content) for a terrific source of energy that is released gradually. When compared to foods that are richer in sugar, these foods are less likely to cause a blood sugar “energy crash.”
Take a walk outside.
The smell of fresh air is energizing. To wake yourself up, go for a walk outside. Moving around and getting some fresh air is a sure-fire approach to boost your energy levels. If you can’t get outside during the workday, try opening a window or sitting near a window.
Yes, exercise can help you feel more energized. It takes energy to get started, but once you do, you’ll notice an increase in blood flow to your brain and skeletal muscles, which increases your body’s production of endorphins.
