    I want to feel alive and ready to smash the day after waking up.

    What can I do and take to feel this way?

    Ride. Seriously, ride a bike! Commute to work on 2 wheels.

    Take a walk in a garden or a beach or some natural scenic place if it's close to your place. Or just go out for a walk.

    If going out is not an option then get some interesting hobbies... Music?

    I recommend a bolus of protein. Just swallow it down first thing in the morning and it'll give you the pep you're looking for.

    Once I've switched off the alarm, I do ten minutes of stretches (mostly legs) while still in bed. I get up, splash my face, drink a pint of juice and then do 45min of cardio. After that, I'm pretty much ready for whatever the day has to throw at me. I have never been a morning person. It just takes a bit of self-discipline.

    Hate to admit it but I am awful in the morning. Takes so long to actually be conscious after getting up, a "do not disturb" sign around my neck for the first hour wouldn't go amiss either.

    The dogs usually drag me out of bed when they want to be fed. It's like they sit there watching the clock and start poking me with cold noses at 0600:00 sharp.

    For overall energy hydration is important. I try to drink 4 cups.before bed and when I manage I usually dont wake up feeling groggy. Also, have a nutritious breakfast and try and take a cold shower.

    The first thing to do is to get a good night's sleep. That is backed up with diet, exercise, mental health and all that.

    When I was working, I hated waking up and was never a morning person. I survived it by having a routine. Out of bed when the clock went off and no punching the snooze button, get coffee and breakfast going while the bath was running, off to the bathroom, sit down to breakfast with good coffee. Then get out the door on to work. It was not easy and sometimes I just went through the motions blindly, but I was usually going strong by the time I got to work.

    Getting out of bed is way overrated.

    LOL.

    It's called BREAKFAST...

    throw in some coffee for good measure but...

    you should not drinks that are bad for you...overstimulation is bad, and leads to heart disease, high bp, cardiac arrhythmic issues, sleepiness..etc.

    Then, get moving...

    First things first...EAT.
