    Eat a decent breakfast with plenty of fruit. Coffee is bad for keeping you alert throughout the day but I still have a cup to get my brain in gear. Drink about a litre of water in the time that you get out of bed until you leave the house. That should set you up nicely.

    Also, getting a good nights sleep goes without saying, 6-8 hours is usually sufficient. A constant sleeping pattern will help too but if you work shifts like me then you'll have to chuck that one out the window.

    Go for a walk or excerise I believe is the best idea. Coffee just gives you dirty comedown by about 10:30. :p

    A single apple has more energy than a cup of coffee.

    Nature > Starbucks. ;)

    ive gone from about 4coffees aday to just one when i get in at around 4.

    its made me feel worse i think.. maybe its just cold turkey :p.

    ive also got in the habit of having corn flakes on a morning, but it hasnt made me feel any better. i normally have corn flakes and a glass of water...

    is it more water i need? juice?... some fruit too..

    Tell me how is there any possible way to get motivated for a boring day at work especially after opening the curtains and seeing the dull grey sky?

    Coffee, bananas, loud music on the drive to work (yay for itrips), windows down, fresh air, bran flakes and smiling help me get going.
