Let’s face it. Coffee is a wonderful thing – it’s comforting and delicious and gives us the energy we need to make it through the day. But, too often, we find ourselves drinking way too much of it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally fine to have a cup or two every once in a while (especially if it’s the smooth blend offered by Isagenix Coffee), but there are some great substitutes out there, too.
So, if you’re ready to break your coffee habit, or are at least willing to try something new, here are five awesome alternatives to coffee that are sure to give you the energy boost you need:
Diffuse Some Peppermint Oil in Your Workspace
If you’re feeling sluggish after skipping your habitual morning coffee, try diffusing some Isagenix Peppermint Essential Oil. Its strong, minty aroma makes it perfect for an uplifting, refreshing experience, so you can bang out every task on your to-do list.
Add a Morning Workout to Your Routine
Waking up to squeeze in a morning workout may sound like the quickest path back to your coffee habit, but research shows that the more you exercise, the more energy you have. Squeezing in some exercise first thing (even just a quick 12-minute workout) can give you the mental focus and clarity you need to tackle the day, and it will keep your body energized. It’s the endorphins!
Snack on Energy-Boosting Fruit
If you find yourself heading toward the coffee pot when the inevitable afternoon slump hits, try grabbing a piece of energizing fruit instead. Fruits with a high-water content (think apples or peaches), those rich in carbohydrates (like bananas and oranges), and those high in iron (try pineapple or raspberries), are all great choices when you’re falling asleep at your desk.
Stay Hydrated All Day Long
Letting your body get even a little bit dehydrated can lead to a serious lack in your overall energy, so hydration is key for keeping yourself awake and alert from morning till night. Water will do the trick, but if you’re looking for something delicious, try AMPED™ Hydrate for a naturally hydrating drink mix enriched with vitamins C and B-complex without any artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.
Try Filling Your Mug With a Cup of Tea
If you’re missing your warm morning beverage, try switching to a cup of green tea. Despite not having quite as much caffeine as coffee, this drink has an endless amount of extra benefits, so drinking an extra cup (or two) isn’t a bad thing!
If you’re ready to take a break from coffee, I highly recommend giving some of these alternatives a try!
