It may take you one, two, three...maybe even four cups of coffee to actually wake up. But in the unlikely and terrifying event that you can't get your morning fix, how would you get yourself going?
A recent AsapSCIENCE video gives seven super helpful tips on how to wake up without that morning cup of joe, and actually explains how these practices get you energized using science. The best part is, a lot of these tips are really easy to follow. For example, putting on music, drinking water, getting light into the room, ending your shower with a burst of cold water, as well as other accessible tactics will get you up and running.
Watch the video to find out all seven tips and learn precisely how they work, and then maybe skip the morning coffee. Seriously, you can do it. Believe in yourself.
