Get energized! It's been a long day of classes and work, but you still have to finish that assignment for tomorrow...what can you do do regain some energy? There are actually many quick and easy fixes...thank goodness, right? First, I'm going to introduce you to the Women's Health's instant energy tips. And by the way, they don't include Red Bull or 5 Hour Energy. They do include the 5 senses, which you're never without!
1.) Sound: Listen to music; talk to a friend in person or on the phone
2.) Touch: touch something smooth like a ring or flat stone ("researchers found that people view socializing as tougher after touching a rough object"). Keep this tip in mind for when you'd rather go to sleep than hang out with your friends!
3.) Sight: Colors and light will help keep you alert as well as improve your mood
4.) Smell: Orange, peppermint, or cinnamon scents may help you stay alert when you start to get tired
5.) Taste: Chew gum or eat something with a citrus flavor (or an actual orange or grapefruit)
