Despite the numerous advantages of both tea and coffee, not all people have time in the morning to brew their favorite drinks, and they are simply contraindicated for many. But you can get a boost of vivacity in the early morning without fiddling with kettles and coffee makers.
People who, for one reason or another, are unable to stimulate their brain in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea, often experience insurmountable sleepiness for several hours until their body adapts to the "wakefulness regime."
And Scottish scientists from the University of Edinburgh offer a completely equivalent replacement for popular drinks, and their methods are free of any side effects characteristic of caffeine.
The methods can be used both in combination and separately:
- immediately after waking up, all curtains should be opened so that the room (and, if possible, the whole apartment) is brightly lit. In winter, electric lighting can be used for this.
- you need to take a contrast shower - and finish it with cold water
- to "start" the brain at full capacity, you need to drink at least 1 glass of liquid - it is better if it is fresh orange juice.
- breakfast (unlike lunch) never causes drowsiness, but on the contrary - invigorates and gives strength. The main thing is that the breakfast is complete, but not too plentiful.
- exercise is an excellent substitute for coffee and tea in terms of stimulating all body systems. But if there is no time to exercise, then an invigorating effect can be achieved by listening to fast, energetic music while brushing your teeth, making breakfast, and so on.
In general, it is better to turn on vigorous music immediately after waking up - in this case, its effect will be even more pronounced.
