These 3 Energy Hacks Will Help You Kick-start The Day!

In today’s article, I’m going to share with you my top 3 energy hacks that will turn you into an active person.

“If I only had more energy, I’d get everything done.”

You know how many times I’ve heard that statement or something similar…?

Too many to count.

And in most cases, it’s coming from a customer that finds themselves feeling sluggish from morning to night…

Struggling to be productive at work…

Struggling to engage with friends and family…

Just struggling with everyday life in general.

And to their credit, recognizing that there’s an energy problem is the first step towards finding a solution…

But finding that solution can be harder than it looks.

So today, I decided to share with you some of the best energy hacks I know

And granted, these aren’t complete ways to erase your brain fog and chronic tiredness, but I hope that these hacks at least give you some ideas to put into practice and get on the right track to a more energetic life.

So, let’s start with the beginning…

What’s the first thing you usually do in the morning? If it’s a morning cup of coffee, then this first energy hack might be for you…

Energy Hacks #1: Delay Your Morning Cup of Coffee

If you’re like many of my readers out there, your day starts with a cup of coffee…

Or more likely, several cups of coffee…

And it can even continue throughout the day, drinking cup after cup to keep that caffeine coming in…

That is, until you crash.

Now, caffeine does help with mental acuity and improved concentration, but the effects don’t last forever…

And that’s why I recommend that you use coffee and caffeine strategically and in moderation…

Here’s how you can maximize coffee’s effectiveness:

  1. Remove the early cup of coffee from your early morning routine.
  2. Replace it with a glass of water and, if you need an energy burst to get moving, eat high Vitamin C fruit like grapefruit or kiwi when you wake up.
  3. Eat a healthy breakfast as normal.
  4. Have your first cup of coffee around 10 am or 11 am.

What you might not know is that Vitamin C has a more immediate “wake up” effect than coffee…

And seeing as your morning routine is probably not brain-intensive, it’s a waste to use caffeine so early.

This basic schedule gives you the energy you need to get started with your day, and saves the coffee for the time when you’ll need more brainpower…

In addition, you’re also pacing things out so when the caffeine starts to wear off, it should be time for a nutritious lunch – another way of getting more energy and avoiding the crash.

I don’t recommend a second cup of coffee after lunch, but if you must, keep in mind that it’s best to not consume caffeine after about 2 pm to prevent sleep problems…

And while we’re on that subject…

Energy Hacks #2: Routine, Routine, Routine!

Everybody knows that you need restful sleep to have energy the next day…

But it always surprises me how many people skip the single most important step to get those all-important Z’s – setting up a consistent sleep routine.

As a human, your body and mind are wired for routine…

However, modern life actively discourages the kind of routines that make for good sleep…

One day you may have a late dinner at 9 pm and go directly to bed afterwards…

And the next night, maybe you watch a movie and don’t fall asleep until 1 am…

And the night after that, maybe you lay in bed and play with your phone, waking up multiple times through the night.

For more energy during the day, it’s a MUST to have a regular routine for the night. Here’s my nighttime routine strategy…

  1. Give yourself an ideal bedtime and stick to it – if you’re waking up every morning at 7 am, then a good time would be 11 pm-12 am.
  2. Plan your dinner for at least 4 hours before you sleep, so in the example, 7-8 pm would be optimal.
  3. For the last hour before you go to sleep, make a no-screen rule. That means no phones, computers, or even television.
  4. Right before you get into bed, drink a glass of water.

What you’re doing with this nighttime routine strategy is creating a hardwired plan for your body and mind…

And once you do it for a couple of nights in a row, both will adapt and start expecting sleep at the same time…

Not only that, but the sleep you get will also be more restful, further filling you up with energy for the next day.

Now, for my last energy hack, this one may seem like the least important, but it could have the biggest effect of them all…

Energy Hacks #3: Find A Healthy De-Stress Activity

Every day, your life is filled with stress points, and some are more stressful than others. Things like…

  • Your morning alarm clock going off
  • The car that passed you at high speed on your way to work
  • Your boss telling you you’re late with your work
  • Opening the mailbox and the first thing you see is an unpaid bill
  • Worrying about what to eat for dinner
  • Having an argument with your significant other

All these things create stress…

And when your body encounters stress, it uses MORE energy to move pass that stress point, no matter how small it is…

Now, here’s the problem – even though that initial stress point may be passed, the truth is that it can linger, and your body keeps on using mental and physical energy to deal with that stress.

When you discover a healthy de-stress activity and make it a point to include it in your everyday routine for at least half an hour, you’re creating an escape valve for that stress, even if you don’t realize it…

So, what would be a healthy de-stress activity? The options are infinite, but here are a few examples that have worked for people I know (including me)…

  • Working on a jigsaw puzzle
  • Singing (even to yourself)
  • Calling a friend or family member
  • Listening to an album of music
  • Writing your thoughts in a journal
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Reading a book

And there’s a million more out there to try!

But you don’t have to stick to a single one. In fact, I recommend mixing it up so you don’t burn out on a single de-stress activity…

The important thing is that you set aside that time for yourself (remember, at least half an hour) and recognize that when you’re doing that activity, it’s about relieving the stress of the day…

You may not consciously notice a difference, but your body and subconscious mind certainly will…

And in turn, you’ll find that with this extra release of stress, you’ll feel more relaxed AND have more energy the next day.

It may seem counter-intuitive that being relaxed gives you energy, but trust me on this one – it truly works…

Now, these were my top recommendations, but if you find yourself lacking energy, you can also try to…Up-n-Go Natural Energy Supplement
