If you find yourself missing morning workouts because you are hitting the snooze button to frequently, I have a great trick for you and your groggy brain.
A study recently came out that showed chewing gum dramatically increased mental strength, enabling students to score much higher on tests than a control group. I read this and thought, "I sure could use that mental fortitude when trying to get up early to go swim!"
I put some cinnamon gum in the drawer of my nightstand and roll over and put a piece in my mouth when the alarm goes off in the morning. I've been doing this for the past two weeks, and without fail, I'm up and about in a great mood within five minutes. It really works!
This trick is not just useful for getting up early in the morning, but anytime you need a mental boost for a task. I have been doing it to prepare for working on a hard project or to boost my mood to go work out. Give it a try yourself and see what happens!
