Any alternative to coffee?

    Hello, in February my triad of symptoms was completed with the dreaded attack of vertigo. I have since stopped caffeine as recommended.

    The problem is that in October I will start, if this illness allows me, a Master's degree and as a student I have always needed a good cup of coffee to wake up or endure the fatigue while studying. I'm trying to find an alternative to coffee that will wake me up a bit or give me energy to study when sleep strikes. Does anyone know anything?

    Before someone says anything, I have already tried exercising before studying and honestly when I finish running my 20-30 minutes what I most want is a shower and relax. I think my body secretes hormones the reverse of normal humans.

    On a typical day, what do you eat before you exercise, & at what time do you exercise?

    I'm exactly 63.46% sure that there are caffeine free pre-workout (stimulating) formulas available.

    Hi Nathan, now in summer I usually go for a run between 8-9pm, the reason is that before it was very hot because of the sun and I prefer to wait for the shade of the trees. Nor do I want to go for a run when I am alone at home because if I get dizzy making a call, they come looking for me (I run less than 5 minutes from my house) and until September 20 my mother works until 8pm. I'm trying right now to change my hours to get up early and play sports before lunchtime, the problem is that in the morning if it's not cloudy, the area where I run has absolutely no shade and it's hell in summer. Curiously, in winter it will be a refrigerator because it is a little high hillside.

    About what I eat, the truth is that my meals vary a lot, today I ate clams in their sauce, yesterday pocho breasts with scrambled vegetables, etc. Many times I go for a run without eating because I prefer to shower and wait for dinner.

    Before you answer, in Spain we have different hours, here it is normal to eat at 2-3pm and dinner at 10-11pm. I normally studied at night until 4-6am so running at 8-9pm should work to get me active, but as I said above I am already modifying my schedules to bring them a little closer to the British style. Today I went to bed at 1:30 am and fell asleep around 3am to get up at 10am although at 4pm I was dying of sleep so I had a little coffee and felt a little dizzy, that's why I look for alternatives because now I'm on vacation, but I need to adapt my body to face the Master with this disease.

    Tiene la opción de hacer ejercicio en interiores.

    Considere hacer ejercicio con Pamela Reif, por ejemplo.

    Y para desayunar?

    With my new, more human and less vampire schedule, I've been eating breakfast at 10:30 am for two days, I don't think I'll get up much earlier since I don't need it as if it were a job. I have found that I study much better if I do not force myself out of bed and do it by waking up without alarms. Today I slept from 3am to 9:30 am, I have some sleep because my body is still not getting used to these time changes. But today I will not drink coffee that yesterday I noticed that it made me some mild dizziness.

    Green Tea and dark chocolate can be meniere's triggers. I drink a lot of water yet so I tried the other options. Thank you very much!
