AVOIDING MORNING FATIGUE
“Morning Fatigue can be present for a wide variety of reasons; Sleep deprivation , restlessness & bad food habits”
For most of us, feeling fatigued, groggy and a bit slow, no matter what time of the year it is, has virtually become a way of life. Overwhelmed with stress and responsibilities, we listlessly soldier on, fighting brain fog and exhaustion with shots of caffeine and spoonfuls of sugar to prop ourselves up, just long enough to make it through the day. Then, when it’s time for lights-out, we’re too jacked-up to sleep. No wonder so many of us are physically, emotionally and mentally spent!
The good news is that you don’t have to live like this. Simply by living a little smarter and making a few health-supporting choices every day, you can banish fatigue from your life and live it the way you were born to — with vibrancy and energy.

Creating that morning energy burst!
Say good morning to your body.
Even if you usually rise in the dark, greet the day with a few classic yoga sun salutations or gentle stretches to get the blood pumping, easing your body into the day. Still tense and achy from yesterday? Then try a 2-step release and stretch move, first thing in the morning to bust tension, open blocked energy pathways, reduce pain and energize you for the day. Start with a slow Neck and Shoulder Release. Follow this with a Wall Stretch for 1–2 min. to straighten your spine and let energy flow unobstructed to the top of your head. These simple moves will stretch your shoulders, legs and back, as you stimulate muscle tissue and blood flow throughout the body, waking it and energizing it without artificial stimulants. (Coffee, cereal with sugar and empty calories)
Regardless of the methods you choose to energize your body to full potential in the morning with, the far easiest way to activate your body in the morning, is simply by drinking water. Medium warm water (boiled) will boot up your system up and prep your stomach to digest a fulfilling breakfast.
As a multicellular species, we consist of an immense amount of liquid, and will of cause have a natural need for water to sustain and operate our body, if we don’t, a list of familiar morning feelings, will surely present it self, such as; joint pain, headaches, lack of hunger, uneasy stomach, reasonless display of irritability and more. No one likes to be or work with a morning grumpy person, so why not avoid the grumpy face together, and take a glas of water, as the first thing when you wake up and another, when you enter the office.
Not convinced? This should do it
Water helps to plump up your skin, so you should be able to imagine what dehydration will do! When you don’t drink enough water, the collagen begins to crack and bind together, causing fine lines and wrinkles to get more noticed. We rely on water to keep our insides sufficiently hydrated, too. So when you ditch it, expect your mouth, skin, and everything else to feel drier than normal.
