• Want to drink fresh juice in the morning? A great idea, but do we have the time to prepare it. Instead, prepare the vegetables and fruit the night before and freeze them in a bag or lunchbox. Add some lemon to any apples to stop them going brown. Blend the cold vegetable and fruit for breakfast; the chill actually makes it better.
  • Drink chlorophyll, or add it to your juice. This deodorizes the body, and just seem to get energy and blood flowing through the body. You only need a teaspoon or two per day.
  • Eat ginseng. Your energy levels become steady with Ginseng; no highs and lows, just steady concentration. Available as tea, dry root, jelly or in several other forms.
  • Some people claim lemon with hot water or apple cider vinegar with hot water is great after waking in the morning. A few people add a little cayenne pepper.
  • Avoid bright light at night. This included reading, computer monitors and mobile devices. Bright light wakes us up, making sleep difficult or less effective. Try using orange tinted glasses to reduce (though not completely remove0 the effects of bright light in the evening.
  • Get some sunlight as soon as you wake. Wear sunscreen later on, but you need natural light to wake you up. Try to get light on your arms and legs, not just your face. This is even more important in winter when there is less light.
  • Keep vegetable like carrots and celery ready to eat in the fridge. Substitute these for snacks. Celery keeps well when one end is kept in water.
  • Eat high coco, low sugar chocolate. It is actually good for the teeth and apparently does not cause weight gain.
  • Powdered supplements are useful. Add a very small amount beetroot or other powder to you drinking water. You drink more water when there is a very subtle taste.
  • The smell of an orange, or lavender, or some other scents are great for you mood. Find scents that wake you or make you relaxed for bed.
  • Make a week’s worth of lunches in advance and freeze them. This avoids the temptation to eat fast food.
  • Add some raw vegetable to your lunch and breakfast.
