So, it’s summer now, it’s hot outside, and you probably don’t feel like doing much more than lying on the couch, in the AC, while watching movies and playing video games, right? Um, wrong! You need to be active and productive! Here are some natural ways to boost your energy without drinking coffee.
1. Take a cold shower
It’s all about the polar bear swim. Researchers have even suggested a three-minute long cold shower could be enough to counteract some of the effects of chronic fatigue.
2. Hit the candy bowl
Sure chocolate’s got caffeine, but that’s not the only reason it offers a quick pick-me-up. Flavonoids found in cocoa have been shown to boost cognitive skills and improve mood.
