Thermos Giveaway - Helping You Banish Those Monday Blues

Monday morning often begins with the filling up of a Thermos container with coffee to help you get started for that long work week that is ahead of you. To help you get your Monday off on the right foot Thermos has put together some helpful tips as well as a Facebook contest that might just put a smile on your face to begin your week.

Start your day with a few cups of your favorite coffee. Not only can coffee keep you alert throughout the day, but consuming 3-5 cups a day can help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Instead of hitting the snooze button several times, get out of bed and start your day with a morning routine. Waking up at the same time and performing the same activities (like a morning run) will get your body used to the energy needed to get through the whole day1. Of course, don’t forget to get your metabolism going with a balanced breakfast.

Avoid saturated fats and other unhealthy foods. Instead, choose lean protein snacks, which will provide both a short-term burst of energy and boost your metabolism for long-lasting energy.

Take some time for yourself during the workday. Going on a 10-minute walk in the sun will provide enough vitamin D for a boost of energy6. Also, find time to laugh. Laughter can reduce overall stress7 and increase serotonin levels in the brain8, which will increase your overall energy level.

Hydration is an important way to keep energy levels up throughout the week. Men should drink roughly 104 ounces and women should drink 72 ounces9 of water each day. A Thermos brand hydration bottle makes it easy to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Taking five to 10 minutes to stretch throughout the day will help improve your circulation, which can release tension and increase your energy level.
