Coffee has always been praised to give you a good jolt of energy, especially in the morning. This allows you to perform with full alertness throughout the day. Coffee is known to keep a person vigilant for up to 6-7 hours a day, and a lot of people like to drink the hot beverage at least 2 – 3 times for a boost to help get through their day.
However, recently several doctors have started to strongly advise people to cut back on caffeine significantly since it can lead to various difficulties. With that in mind, a lot of people have started to look for alternatives that would replace coffee, to elevate their energy levels without affecting their health negatively.
This type of tea is known to have a significantly less amount of caffeine but it succeeds in giving you the uplifting sensation that you need. Not only that, green tea is packed with a lot of health benefits such as Catechin which is a powerful antioxidant and disease fighter. Green tea not only refreshes and wakes us up, but in fact, it helps us lose weight by revving up our metabolism.
Dehydration is one of the main sources of fatigue and mental exhaustion. A lot of the times, people discover that by drinking water they cure themselves of headaches or inability to focus. A majority of people only tend to drink water when they are thirsty and not after certain short intervals. In order to make drinking water appealing, you can even add fruit for an antioxidant infusion.
Protein is extremely crucial for providing energy into your body and studies conducted recently have shown that protein tends to boost concentration and alertness by igniting the brain chemical called orexin, into production mode. So the next time you feel sleepy or exhausted, help yourself to a protein based smoothie.
With these tips, you will discover that you are able to lay off caffeine much more easily, to the point that you may not need it anymore.
