To boost your metabolism and break the all night fast of not eating as you are asleep, have an apple. Apples provide pectin to your body which is a metabolic booster and this is a great way to start the day and jumpstart your metabolism


After you have your apple, get outside and get your workout in. By starting your day with a workout, you will burn calories, boost your metabolism and set the stage for making healthier choices throughout the day. If you start the day on the right foot by being active, you will feel better with more energy to fuel the day!


 To jumpstart your metabolism, do high intensity bursts of exercise every few minutes and then drop it down a bit, and repeat. By adding interval training into your workout, you will burn more calories in your exercise session and while at rest!


Drink several glasses of cold water on your commute to work to rid your body of toxins, increase your metabolism and flush out your kidneys. 


As you arrive at work, take a deep breath and stretch your muscles. Today is going to be a great day because you are going to make it that way. Life is what you make of it. Stretch your arms above your head and just breathe. Now do several arm circles to release tension in your shoulders, as well as tone them. And while doing this, you are burning calories
