Winter has arrived in Scandinavia, and the lack of daylight and the cold weather seems to steal our energy. Suddenly it’s much harder to get up in the morning and it feels like we always reach for that extra cup of coffee.
However, there are some easy steps to be done to refill your energy level and kick winters ass (without increasing your coffee intake). Take a look;

Avoid refined sugar
Like always, refined sugar isn’t the best thing to fuel your tired body with. All it does is give you that sugar high, but then you hit rock bottom pretty fast too.

Tap your thymus
Tap your what? No worries, we will explain! Your thymus is located at center top of your chest, below the collar bone, between your breasts.

We all have that one friend or colleague who never seems to run out of fuel (energy). Sometimes the best thing to do is socialize with people like that, because mood and energy is contagious.
A vacation for the brain
For each blink we take, the brain takes a mini-vacation, according to Dr. Douglas Graham. So, all you go to do the next time your feel tired while reading or working is blink 10 to 20 times per minute and the brain will get the chance to recover. Cool, right?
