5 Tips To Energize Your Mornings

April 24, 2015 2 min read

Having trouble peeling yourself out of bed and getting going in the morning? Are your mornings a blur? Is your first clear memory of the day right about when you get to the bottom of your first cup of coffee? Here are some tips to help fire up your body and to make the most of your mornings!
  1. Leave your alarm clock far enough away from your bedside so that you must get out of bed to turn it off. This also prevents you from slipping back in and cozying up.
  2. Open the blinds and let the natural light in. This helps switch off melatonin production in the body and prepares the body for functioning in its waking state.
  3. Head into the kitchen and prepare a tall glass of lukewarm water with about half a lemon squeezed into it. A gentle daily detox-it is quite refreshing even though it is warm! You want to drink it and leave at least 20 minutes between drinking this and eating. This activates the digestive and pancreatic juices.  It also facilitates the movement of the waste collected by the liver overnight to the colon for elimination and starts up the digestive engine to help you get the most out of the food you eat.
  4. Get the blood flowing! Whatever it is you like to do to stay fit, yoga, stairs or a jog, make time for it in the mornings. Exercise opens up the neuro-pathways in the brain, allowing you to react faster and more effectively to all of the challenges that come your way. Trust me, you will feel the difference even just 20 minutes can make and will witness improvements in all areas of your life.
  5. Eat a balanced, wholesome breakfast. If you want this newfound energy to last throughout the day you better give your body what it needs! Avoid eating a sugar bomb in the form of sugar cereal, pop tart or white bread. This will really help you avoid that slump in the middle of your day without the help of caffeine!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

'Due to COVID-19, online stores are experiencing some shipping delays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we assure you that we are working hard with our shipping partner UPS to get you your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.'

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it just takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Signatures are required on all orders. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
