In recent years the power of a morning routine has been discussed across blogs, news articles and podcasts. Some sites claim to have the ‘ultimate’ morning routine to make you all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Having a routine can certainly make you feel more chipper, but not everyone has the capacity to complete a lengthy routine. The school drop-off, commute or accidental lie in can get in the way. This is where Brite comes in! Brite can become a quick and enjoyable addition to your morning routine, or an alternative to a 5-step wake up process. Grab a Brite drink from your fridge, hydrate and enjoy the energy boost.
Keep reading to learn the benefits of Brite, and to find out our tips on how to feel more awake in the morning.
What is the best morning drink?
We may be biased, but we think the answer is Brite.Why? Brite is a nourishing alternative to coffee. Our award-winning formula of caffeine and L-theanine gives you a prolonged energy boost, without the crash.
Coffee is a popular morning drink, but it has its downsides - literally. The sharp spike in energy after consuming your morning coffee may remove the fog of drowsiness, but once the effects wear off you’re left feeling irritable or shaky, and tired. Brite is the best morning drink because it doesn’t cause peaks or troughs, instead gives you a healthy energy boost.
Do you feel dehydrated in the morning?
Feeling dehydrated in the morning is common. During the night, you lose fluids and electrolytes as you sleep. Snoring or breathing through your mouth can exacerbate feelings of dehydration as the moisture from your nose and mouth evaporates. To combat feeling dehydrated in the morning, experts recommend drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up. Hot water and lemon is a popular morning drink, but, in terms of hydration, it’s just as good as a glass of water.
If you wake up feeling dehydrated and reach for a mug of coffee, this may make your dehydration worse as coffee is a diuretic.
Brite is both a source of hydration and a source of energy. Plus, you can enjoy it chilled.
Want to energise yourself for a morning workout?
If hitting the gym is part of your morning routine, then energy is really important. Energy drinks will increase your energy levels, but similar to coffee, will likely make you crash once they wear off. Energy drinks also contain a lot of sugar and a long list of ingredients full of words you’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce. The sustainably sourced superfoods in Brite, such as organic matcha, guayusa and guarana, are a natural, healthy alternative to the ingredients found in energy drinks.
To energise yourself for a morning workout, enjoy Brite before you head out or take it with you.
