Bored, tired, fatigued, lethargic, drowsy, jaded etc! Have you using these words to describe your day. During this quarantine period, many people are complaining about being tired and not really energetic throughout the day. Being lethargic can negatively impact our productivity and considering many of us are working from home right now, we cannot afford to be drowsy. One of the common reasons could be lack of sleep. Sleep deprivation leads to daytime fatigue and irritable and cranky behavior. And lack of sunlight is what we have to blame now as we hardly get it right now.

For the unversed, sunlight helps to improve our body’s serotonin levels, which not only helps improve your sleep and it also gives you energy for the rest of the day. Now, we hardly travel or go outside in the morning and even morning jog has been thwarted. As you cannot go out, at least let bright lights, whether it’s sunlight or synthetic, be in the room so that you don't feel sleepy and gloomy.  But don't worry as there are certain ways that can help you to snap out of the feeling of tired all day. Read on to know more.

Hitting a snooze button for 10 minutes of more sleep can actually disrupt your whole day. How?

After waking up instead of drinking caffeinated drinks like coffee or tea you should drink a glass of water. Anyways there are several health benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach in the morning, it will also make you refreshed and hydrated and give your much-need energy for the day.

2. Do some stretches in the morning

Instead of going back to sleep by hitting the snooze button or start your laptop to work, take out some time and do some stretches for a few minutes. When we are sleep, are muscles actually undergo a form of paralysis. Simple exercises and stretches, release endorphins and these hormones are very much needed for the better energy levels.
