I am often asked by those I work with or coach. “How can I get more energy to become more productive?” Now there is no magic pill or bullet for this but there are some steps you can take. And this one simple life hack is something you have been told before, it’s available to you, you can do right now and it costs very little money if anything at all.
Drink water first thing in the morning and drink more of it throughout the day. I personally
have been drinking a glass or two of water every morning for the past few months. I have made it a part of my morning routine and it is the linchpin for my early morning productivity. I feel more energized throughout the morning and I also end up drinking less coffee as a result. To be honest, this was really hard for me. I LOVE the taste of coffee (God knows I don’t need the caffeine because I already have a lot of energy) but I committed to drinking water for a month.
Drinking more water just makes sense. According to the USGS Water Science School our bodies are made up of 60% of water and our brain and heart are made up of 73% water.
In addition to this you just spent 8, maybe 7, hopefully no less than 6 hours sleeping. Your body has not eaten or drank any liquid this entire time. Do you go this many hours when you are awake without drinking? (if so, you shouldn’t).
Why wouldn’t you drink some water first thing in the morning when you wake up?Think about it… it does makes total sense, right? Right!?
