2. Eat Something Right Away
Here’s one reason so many people have a hard time getting up first thing in the morning: they’re out of fuel. Seriously, though, after seven or eight hours in bed, chances are your body has gone without food and drink for at least that long—possibly longer. To get your energy up for the day ahead, immediately grab something to eat.
Of course, the healthier the food item, the better. Skip the donuts and sugary cereal and try whole grains, fruit or vegetables. Low-fat yogurt with fresh fruit and granola is one of many excellent breakfast options. You might also consider an egg white omelette with fresh veggies, like mushrooms and spinach.
