I can’t really drink caffeine due to other health concerns. What do you use to try to boost your energy levels?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I drink hot chocolate with breakfast essentials in it
I usually have more energy if I eat something in the morning, but besides that just having consistent time frames in which you wake up and fall asleep in. Setting a specific bedtime and waketime was super stressful for me to keep up with, so I usually try to go to bed between 1-3am and wake up between 10am-12pm depending on if I have work or not since I work afternoon-evening
Usually I take naps for energy but I realize not everyone has the luxury. For caffeine, I need it every day or have a headache but sometimes I throw up my energy drinks cause my stomach can't handle it so I usually take an Excedrin
Water and sugar for me. But often my low energy is caused by low blood sugar.
Recently my Gf and i have been trying matcha tea as a replacement for coffee, it wakes us up but doesnt give us the jitters as much, it still has caffeine but only 1/3 of what a cup of coffee has.
I take vitamin b12 and D3 supplements. My psych recommended a “super B-complex” vitamin can help with depression and anxiety based on studies, and B vitamins also help with energy.
Going outside first thing in the morning to get some sun and fresh air, stretch, and drink maybe some hot water with honey or something to add flavor.
Vitamin B complex!
I wash my face with cold water and drink ice water as much as possible
B vitamins are known to help, regular exercise is also known to help (as well as help with depression and anxiety) but I know that's a harder goal to maintain.
