You Need a Nap
There's a nap, a power nap, and then a caffeine nap.
Kids hate 'em, we love 'em.
You know that Sunday afternoon quick snooze on the couch that just hits different? You might want to make that a daily habit.
Power naps can improve alertness up to 6 hours after. Plus, it gives your immune system a boost.
Keep the nap short, over 30 minutes and you end up feeling groggy.
Did you know?: According to our Google search, 53% of adults who take a nap feel groggy after waking up (keep it short!).
Let us know how you feel after your nap
So what's a caffeine nap?
As a coffee lover, I'm thinking of trying this. Apparently, you drink coffee right before you take your power nap. When ya wake up the caffeine kicks in.
People who took a caffeine nap improved their attention span at work. That’s kind of a big deal, right?
If ya try it, make sure to do it in the early afternoon so you aren’t awake all night - and keep it to a cup.
5 Reasons You Have No Energy
Feel like you're just getting by every day? You wake up, go to work, come home and the cycle keeps repeating itself - you feel tired and stuck.
Here are 5 things that impact your energy and some easy tips to improve it.
Start a routine and try to be consistent. Say no to screens in the bedroom. Keep it cool and dark.
Start your day with a glass of water. Add some fresh lemon and sea salt to help balance your electrolyte levels.
Keep it simple. Decrease the amount of sugar and processed treats. Keep your blood sugar levels stable by eating your food in this order:
- Protein and fats
Start small. Set a timer every hour and move for a few minutes. Take the stairs and park in the back.
No "me" time.
Schedule it. Treat it like an appointment. Most of you will say, “ya right, not possible.” Make it a priority and you’d be surprised.
