>>> if you woke up with a case of the yawns this morning, don't worry. we have some solutions to help you boost your energy.
>> it could be as simple as putting down that second cup of coffee . no! we have the contributing editor for "spry" living. whatever you're selling, i'm buying. you look fantastic.
>> when it comes to coffee, you automatically think one cup is good and i feel like the second cup --
>> we're not saying don't drink coffee, but watch how much you're drinking. one or two cups is fine, but when we say cup, it's 8 ounces.
>> it's more of this big baby .
>> we're looking more up to 16, 20, 24, and i want to take coffee on the go, my travel mug , this is 20 ounces.
>> seems wrong not to fill it up. exactly, waste not, want not, and i fill it up. you hit a critical mass and then crashes and burns. nothing wrong with a cup of coffee in the morning, but watch how much, and maybe not reach for it later in the day.
>> eggs in the morning?
>> protein is the keyword. long lasting energy, so egg omelette is fantastic. always lack of time in the morning, so i often boil eggs, take it with me on the gog. a great source of energy, no highs and lows, long and steady.
>> and you don't add cheese to a hard- boiled egg like you're tempted to on a omelette.
>> again, cheese is not a bad thing, but protein, long lasting.
>> there's a lot of sugar.
>> we're just saying stay away from refined sugar . i know when i'm crashing, i think candy bars . so natural fruit, protein bars.
>> without the at tiffs.
>> this one i believe 100%, when you're dehydrated, you're just sluggish.
>> it affects everything, but off out of sight out of mind, 8 times 8, 8 ounces of glass. it's pretty, on your desk, great to go, you'll see it and drink it. these have filters built in.
>> so just fill it up with the tap.
>> especially when you go through security. i truffavel, and this is a great solution.
>> i help organized my desk after getting ready for this segment. a cluttered desk, cluttered mind, low energy.
>> i completely agree.
>> these are great colors, adds pop to your day, pop to your energy, and destress before you hit that first e-mail.
>> get up and move, it's fitting. even these, tame them to your neck, and get up at least once --
>> move it, move it. thank you, petra.
>> come back anytime.
>>> tomorrow we are headed to charleston, south carolina .
>>> have a great day, everybody.
