While it may seem difficult, or maybe even impossible, to start your day without that warm matcha latte or Italian double espresso, a little change in your morning ritual might just be what you need to feel more awake.

Luckily, there are plenty of self-care tips and tricks that can help you to mentally and physically switch on. Learning how to wake up without caffeine may take some time as you explore new rituals and as your body adapts. Approaching this change with curiosity and as a learning experience can make a world of a difference. And, here’s the good news. We’re sharing some well-care backed alternatives that can help energize both your mind and body! 

If you’re trying to reduce your intake or cut it out all together, here are 5 self-care tips to wake up without caffeine.

How To Wake Up Without Caffeine

Move your body!

Once you’re out of bed, get in some movement. 

You don’t have to do a vigorous workout. Jump up and down, gently shake out your arms and feet. A few light stretches or a warming sun salutation are all you need to get your blood pumping and your mind alert.

Give yourself time

If you’re not able to hop directly out of bed as soon as the alarm rings, that’s okay. Give yourself some time while you open your eyes and come to.

What can you do during that time? Slowly wiggle your toes to warm up, meditate and take some deep breaths or think about what you’re looking forward to that day. This is an extra moment of peace and quiet that can help you click into action.


Greet the day with plenty of fluids to rehydrate after sleeping, support brain health and kickstart your digestion. Keeping a glass of water on your nightstand will remind you to drink some first thing in the AM!

A mug of the Hibiscus Herbal Tea from Earthwise Beauty is a delicious alternative to coffee. Preparing tea is also such a beautiful ritual that can help remind you to slow down and be present. Drink this tart yet pleasant tea chilled or warm. We like to add organic goji berries to sweeten the tea!

Count on botanicals

Wake up your mind with aromatherapy! 

Made with just 5 uplifting botanicals like orange, fresh lavender and revitalizing rosemary, all Leaping Bunny certified, Pink Moon's Drops of Sunshine energizes your mood to help you feel more alert. To make our essential oil blend a part of your morning ritual: add a few drops to your body wash, 10-15 drops to your diffuser or simply take a whiff right from the bottle! 

Mist your face

Instead of splashing cold water on your face, mindfully make your way out of your morning ritual with a mist packed with skin-loving ingredients. 

Activist Collective Healing Water Toning Mist

The Healing Water Toning Mist from Activist Collective energizes your skin with a boost of hydrating hyaluronic acid and your senses with the refreshing scent of cucumber and lavender. This mist is also available in a refill pouch and comes with a silicone funnel. Give this glass bottle a second life (plus many more!) and save 10%!
