- Wake Up Early
Waking up early gives you the time you need to start your day right instead of having that rushed feeling. You’ll have more time to do things you might otherwise be too distracted, or too rushed for. Use the morning to read, eat a healthy breakfast, have a nice cup of VitaCup.
LIFEHACK TIP: Manipulate your environment to help you! For example, set your coffee to brew on a timer so it’s there waiting for you when you wake up!
- Save The Work That Energizes You For The Afternoon
Use the down part of the afternoon take on the projects that you're most enthusiastic to work on or that causes you feel engaged and excited. This might provide a pick-me-up to get you through that drowsy part of the afternoon. If that isn’t enough for you, VitaCup’s vitamin infused B-12 coffee might give you the pick up you need!
LIFEHACK TIP: Eat Dark Chocolate! Studies found that after eating chocolate with 60 percent cacao, participants' brain scans showed they were more alert and attentive. Reward yourself after the energizing tasks with some sweets and dark chocolate to make coming back to work after lunch a boost instead of a burden!
- Eat more fat.
Perhaps it sounds counter-intuitive, but fat is excellent for your health and any weight loss efforts. Your cells need fat to function properly. Your nervous system needs fat to communicate. Certain vitamins are only absorbed in the presence of fat. Plus, it keeps you full, AND it tastes great.
