10 Great Ways To Wake Up Without A Cup Of Coffee
For the majority of us, the daily morning routine usually involves a cup of coffee to get that caffeine boost. While studies have shown it can help prevent some cancers and lower the risk of diabetes, becoming too dependent on the stuff often leads to tremors and various sleeping problems. Over at Huffington Post, there’s an article with 10 useful tips to help you cut down on your coffee consumption:
1. Call Mom
Chatting up anyone with whom you feel a close personal connection can help charge you up. But Mom may be best at it. She may have been the one to holler your name during the days you slept on a bunk bed, and she still might be the one to pull you from your groggy state. Research suggests merely phoning your dear mother could help decrease feelings of stress.
2. Give Yourself A Massage
One study found that performing a little acupressure could assist in providing a bit of energy. The study had volunteers stimulate five pressure points on the body for three minutes each: the top of the head, the point between your thumb and index finger, right below the centre of the knee cap, below the ball of the foot and the base of your neck.
Check out the whole post to see the other eight tips which are perfect for people who are looking to kick the habit. We’ve already spoken about the long-term health effects of drinking too much sugar in a previous article which looked at soda and juice. The key, like most things in life, is moderation.
