Here’s How to Spring Forward with Extra Energy
Anyone else’s clocks finally match the correct time after springing forward?! 🙋 We love when the time changes because the days feel longer and lighter. It’s also a lil’ hint that summer days are just around the corner! But the initial switch can be tough to manage with early wakeup calls since it’s darker in the morning. We have a few tips for ya to help reset your body and make the spring forward a total breeze.
Eat a light dinner
The dark mornings can mean it’s extra tough to rise and shine. The key is to make sure you get plenty of sleep, and this all starts with what you eat for dinner. Eating a big meal before you hit the hay increases blood flow to your digestive system. This takes your bod out of that restful state you need to be in for a perfect snooze. Your lean, clean, ‘n green dinner that follows the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan principles will do the exact opposite! You’ll fall asleep easily and wake up feeling energized and ready to get your Booty Call in!

Increase the intensity
Getting your heart pumping first thing in the morning will increase your energy levels all day long. It helps boost your metabolism and get blood flowing to bring your body some much-needed nutrients and oxygen to all of your muscles and organs. On mornings when we’re feeling extra sleepy, we love starting off with a HIIT routine. It brings the intensity way up, way fast!

Keep your coffee #TIUapproved
If the time change has your mind a little foggy, go for a cup of joe. Just make sure it’s not loaded with added sugars. These added sugars will give your bod a jolt of energy and a quick crash, which is exactly the opposite of what you’re looking for. We love having two shots of espresso over ice with a splash of almond milk!
