How to get more energy without caffeine

For many, a drop in energy is equivalent to another coffee. However, after a certain amount (which can vary depending on the individual), caffeine, instead of being beneficial, can start to be more harmful. It can make us feel anxious, heart palpitations, discomfort in digestion, headaches, or even cause sleep disturbances.

So it may be a good idea to know tips that increase our energy levels and that do NOT involve caffeine. In this way, you can start decreasing your coffee intake or even try not to take it for a day or two.

See how your body and mind react.

Tips for having energy without caffeine:

1) Drink more water (at least six glasses of water/day)
When you are dehydrated, fatigue slowly begins to settle. It's very simple: water is essential for the proper functioning of our body and our brain. If you drink more water, you will have more energy, but you will also be more focused. Also, if you don't drink a lot daily, your dehydration signals may be a bit off. That would explain why you never seem to be thirsty. However, just because you're not thirsty doesn't mean your body doesn't need it. Start drinking a little more, and you will see that thirst will be more present.

2) A good dose of vitamin D
In summer, to have a little more energy, you can go outside directly.
*Take care to protect yourself from the direct sun!
On the other hand, in winter, a generally darker season, it
may be a good idea to take vitamin D supplements. You will surely notice effects: as much in your energy as in your mood.

3) Activate your body
A fun and cheering way to do it: dance parties.
You choose one to three songs that you like very much, and that will allow you to move (so with a slightly faster rhythm). You leave the songs and dance as you want. No embarrassment, no pressure to dance well. The goal is only to have fun and let the pressure go.
You will see, after a dance party, you will immediately feel energized.

4) Limit your sugar intake
Without going to extremes and starting to restrict yourself, just be aware of the effects of the foods you eat on your energy level. Realize that when your blood sugar goes down, you feel more tired and less concentrated. This is entirely normal. At that time, all you want to do is eat sugar again to make you feel better. This can, unfortunately, be an endless wheel.
When we realize the effects of food on our body, our digestion, our mood, our energy, and our concentration, it is easier to make choices that will help us achieve how we want to feel.

5) Meditate for a few minutes
Taking a moment to stop everything and refocus on yourself is very beneficial for your energy level. You can focus only on your breathing for a few minutes, and you will immediately see a small change. By including it every day in your routine, you can experience more benefits.

6) Reconnect with nature
Going out for a break to reconnect with nature immediately gives an energy boost. This allows, at the same time, to fill up with vitamin D (one-two in one). When you do, try not to put on music or do anything else. Look around you at the nature that surrounds you, listen to its sounds, focus on the smells, colors, etc. It will be a much more pleasant and soothing experience.

7) And if you really want to drink a stimulating drink: try the matcha!
Matcha, unlike coffee, gives gradual and long-term energy (its effect lasts around 6 to 8 hours). So instead of feeling a high of energy and then a down, you’ll only feel more energized and focused. Also, another interesting point, this drink causes less anxiety
than coffee.
* For good night sleep, be careful not to drink it after 3 p.m.
