When you’ve had a bad night’s sleep, you can feel tired and listless throughout the day. You prefer to go straight back to bed. To make your day a little more comfortable, I love to give you 5 ways to tap into energy after a bad night’s sleep.
1. Take a cold shower
A cold shower will help you wake up and feel more energetic. If this is a challenge for you, you can start with a warm shower and turn the tap colder until you are completely under a cold shower. Or go into nature for a dip in nature water.
2. Drink enough
Drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day keeps your body hydrated and reduces headaches. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day. Or make the day comfortable for yourself with large cups of hot tea.
3. Early Morning Yoga
With an Early Morning Yoga session you can wake up your body with deep stretches. You can do this by practicing Yin Yoga or doing a nice flow yoga session. After a class you will feel awake and active. You are always welcome to book a 1:1 online session with me to tap into more energy.
4. Dance in the morning
When you have not slept well, you can sometimes be a bit grumpy. By turning on cheerful music and dancing freely in your bedroom, you can cheer yourself up for the rest of the day!
5. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
By eating healthy you give your body the right nutrients to recharge yourself. So leave all sugars alone. Sugars will only take you to a peak, after which you slump back to fatigue.
Do you often have a bad night’s sleep and find it difficult to fall asleep? Then it is advisable to investigate where this comes from and to apply exercises that calm your mind and body. The online Breathe Better Program can support you with this.
