How To: Feel Awake in the Mornings (Without Caffeine)

Feel Awake in the Mornings (Without Caffeine)

For a quick pick-me-up in the morning, a hot cup of coffee is usually enough to wake up even the most groggy of risers—but feeling fully awake in the morning is possible without a single drop of caffeine.

Exposing yourself to sunlight naturally nudges your internal body clock into awake mode. Increased circulation plays a big role in clearing away your brain's sleep fog, and that can be done through jumping jacks, dry skin brushing, and, if you're brave enough, a cold shower.

Check out the other four handy tricks below to mentally and physically wake yourself up without any risk of a crazy caffeine crash in the late afternoon. Freshly squeezed orange juice, anyone?

All great advice! I've been kicking the morning blues with getting away from my Starbucks and blueberry scone and trading it in for a protein shake! I feel just as awake and I dropped 3lbs, in two weeks!!
