Living a routine life, that too in a metro we are always in hurry burry. We are always running behind and want to get things done the way we want, that we fail to take care of health. Especially people working in the corporate world, it’s always like we are in the whirlpool.
Waking up after multiple snoozes, cook something, get ready to work, travel, work, meetings, late lunches, lots of caffeine breaks, get back home, spending very little time with family members since you are already worn out, eat, sleep and again the cycle goes on.
But a few changes here and there can make you feel energised throughout the day.
- Get up in the first alarm
Stop snoozing the alarm first thing in the morning. Make sure you get a goodnight sleep of about 7 hours. So when the first alarm rings, get up from bed to turn it off.
- Get yourself some natural light and fresh air
You can do this by standing in the sunlight either in balcony or terrace. Make sure you open up curtains or blinds in your room as well.
- Get yourself some fluids
Once you wake up, either drink
- two glasses of warm water
- lemon water
- water boiled with fenugreek
- jeera/cumin water
These are sure to flush out the toxins and ease the colon to clear out the waste.
- Be light on the caffeine
Take a small quantity of coffee or tea.
- Eat small, healthy meals
Make sure you plan the days meal a night before so that you can save time of chopping and cutting them. Make sure you get right amounts of fibers, proteins, vitamins. Be light on the carbs.
- Healthy breakfast
Make sure you take healthy breakfast and don’t dump whatever you find for the first meal of the day. Eat like a King is just a comparison and doesn’t mean you have to eat more quantities.
- Take a walk
If the workplace is near take a walk alternately or don rely on the cab always. Get the metro or the bus occasionally.
- Drink plenty of water to keep up the fluid levels
Again 8 glasses of water is just a measure, you can drink up to 2 liters. Keep in mind not to overdo. IF you would want to incorporate some flavor, you can try adding green tea or even have fruit infusion waters to keep you drinking throughout the day.
My go to solution for this is always INSTACUPPA
You can try their Infusion bottle
or their green tea detox bottle if you want to add green tea infusion to your fluids.
- Do mild stretches in between work
There are certain stretches that you can do even while sitting on the chair that can keep you energised and renew energy.
- Take a power nap
There is nothing wrong if you take a power nap of about 10-15 mins. It has proven to bring in a lot of productivity. Since your mind is fresh, it sure is to bring in a lot of new and innovative ideas to solve problems.
- Limit your caffeine intake post 12 PM
Caffeine sure is to have effect up to 8-10 hours so it is better if you do not indulge in caffeine drinks in afternoon.
- Green tea any day to boost up
Green tea is known to provide instant stimulation and energise the body immediately. Hence you can make yourself a cup of green tea with honey anytime of the day and anywhere.
Now that is easy with the INSTACUPPA TRAVEL MUG

- Keep yourself light on the dinner plate
Again do not overeat. Keep it light. If possible, drink some water or even a glass of milk before going to bed.
- Get some reading
Reading books is a best way to relax. Instead of sitting down with gadgets, you can sit down with a book. You can look out for options in my blog or read though the latest review in my blog. Or an even better idea would be to sit down with your kid and read along with them.if you want to what to read you can check here.
- Getting a good night’s sleep
Set yourself an alarm after about 7 hours. Yes, keep that in mind, you need 7 hours of good sleep to make yourself feel fresh the next day. Relax your eyes before you go to sleep and no gadgets at least an hour before sleep.
- Essential oils in the bedroom
If you are used to essential oils, then you can either use some oils in bedroom for a calming effect. Simple way would be to squeeze 2-3 drops on to a handkerchief and tie it around the best post.
These are my go to ways to keep myself energised and I hope this would be of some help to you too.
