We all have those days where we just can't seem to keep our eyes open. We're sitting at our desks, staring at the computer screen and, the next thing we know, we're looking at our eyelids. It was a struggle to get to sleep last night and early wake-up calls never allow anyone to feel refreshed. When you're tired, it can be hard to concentrate on the work in front of you. However, no matter how much you'd like to just crawl back into bed, you can't. With the following tips, though, you'll be able to wake yourself up enough to finish the day:

1. Become one with water
Cold water can do wonders for you when you're feeling extra tired in the morning. As soon as you get up, drink a full 8 oz. glass, The Arizona Republic suggested. There's a good chance you're slightly dehydrated after what is hopefully 8 hours of sleep. That can increase your feeling of fatigue. One glass is good, but you should try to drink more if you can. You also shouldn't be afraid to take a cold shower. While hot showers feel better, the heat can actually dehydrate you more. Cold water leaves you feeling alert and stress-free, the Huffington Post explained. If you can't bring yourself to fully emerge your body in cool water, at least splash your face with it.

2. Get moving
While it might be the last thing you want to do in the morning, a quick workout will get your blood pumping. Go for a walk, do a couple stretches or, if you have room in your financial plan for it, join a gym. Anything that gets you up and moving releases endorphins, which increase your mood and energy levels, according to HuffPost. If possible, do your morning routine outside. Studies have shown that sunlight reduces stress and tiredness, boosts happy feelings and lowers your body mass index.

3. Eat healthfully
Foods that are full of carbs and sugars are going to drag you down. Instead choose snacks and meals that have protein and whole grain carbohydrates, The Republic explained. Your body will digest these foods more slowly, which will leave you with energy longer. Try going for walnuts, a hard-boiled egg or a whole grain English muffin. Fruit such as apples, bananas and oranges are also great energy boosters since they have natural sugars and other healthy carbs that stabilize your blood sugar, according to HuffPost.

4. Create a playlist
What's better than listening to your favorite tunes while you're getting ready or commuting in the morning? We all have those songs that get us pumped and on our feet. Throw that energizing music on your a.m. playlist so you have something to motivate you. Sing along or dance your way down the street. If you're in a happy mood, you're not focusing on your fatigue or stress.

It can be tough to wake up in the morning, especially when you're stuck staring at a computer screen all day. However, if you work a few new methods into your morning routine, you'll be able to start the day well-rested.
