Stash Your Sunglasses

If you happened to be putting on your shades every time you head outside, try taking them off the next time you need a pick-me-up. According to Dr. Tara Brass, a psychiatrist in New York City, this kind of short term exposure to sunlight signals your brain to stop producing melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone, and gives you a quick energy boost.
Be sure to limit your sunglasses-free time to 10 minutes, because UV rays could damage your eyes.
