Stretch!

Don’t just jump out of bed and hit the snooze, or even scramble for that first cup of coffee. Give your body time to stretch before moving. Stretching sends messages to all your moving parts that you are ready to begin the day. It not only helps your muscles wake up, it brings blood to the muscle tissues before demanding them to perform, think of it as a balanced breakfast of sorts for your muscles. A warmed up muscle will not only have more energy, it will be less likely to experience injury. Stretching is also a good way to revitalize your body, after sitting in front of a computer or desk for long periods of time.

Cold shower

Some macrobiotics claim it helps create an alkaline reaction for over acidic conditions. If this seems about as appealing as wearing your bikini in a snowstorm, take your normal hot shower and at the end turn the water to a mildly cold temperature. This change will pleasantly wake you up.

Relax

Unmanaged stress does more to rob us of energy than anything else. Stress generates negative emotions, disrupts sleep, fosters poor eating habits and interferes with exercise routines. In addition, stress hormones can wreak havoc on our cardiovascular and immune systems. The results can be disastrous for outsmarting the status quo. Learning proper ways to respond to stress is an essential life skill. Yoga, deep breathing and meditation are all great options and should be incorporated into a daily routine.

And take care of your health! Remember that “He who has health, has hope; He who has hope, has everything.”
