We drink orange juice in the morning out of habit. But it might actually have more to it than that. That good ol’ Vitamin C is so important. And why is VC so good? Lots of studies show it can improve mental clarity and even your mood. Citrus fruits wake up your mind. They can also wake up your body. And even the aroma of a citrus fruit will work.

I hate waking up early, but the one thing I know to do is drag myself into a hot shower right away. The one thing I’ve learned that can help me from just standing there under the water and ‘thinking’ is to use scented bodywash. Because otherwise I seriously will stand there for FAR too long, procrastinating even on washing my hair. It always reminds me of a scene from Family Ties where the youngest blonde daughter gets yelled at for taking such long showers and she announces, “That’s when I THINK!” I can relate. :)

I actually really dislike orange juice (gasp!) unless it has lots of ice in it…but I love the smell of oranges. I even use orange/citrus aromatherapy sometimes to try and be more productive. So, while I might not be drinking more OJ, I would definitely consider making the next body wash I purchase something with lemon or orange or grapefruit… I bet they make different ones at drugstores, so just keep your eyes open for them.
