Caffeine-free Ways to Kick Start Your Day

That morning java jolt doesn’t have to be the only way to kick start your day.

If consuming copious amounts of caffeine is part of your morning repertoire, there are other effective ways to get yourself in gear for the day that lies ahead.

Hydrating with a tall glass of water once you get out of bed wakes up your body. Even better is adding some lemon juice. A small squeeze may yield big health dividends as lemon water is thought to have a variety of benefits such as boosting immunity and enhancing digestion.

Getting your blood flowing by exercising won’t just keep your heart healthy but boost your energy level as well. Pairing your workout with mood-boosting music is another great way to jump-start your day.

While there are many health benefits associated with consuming coffee of a moderate quantity, we encourage our patients to be mindful with the number of coffee consumed and if they feel they NEED the coffee boost to cope with the stressors of the day or to simply “wake up”!! The NEED for coffee is usually a reflection of some deeper issue to attend to.
