Raise your hand if you’ve ever woken up feeling groggy or exhausted—even after a full night’s sleep.

Whether you’re setting the alarm to hit up an early workout class or be the first one in the office, coffee isn’t the only answer for those tired eyes and slow-moving limbs.

In fact, Kelly Morris, the meditation coach behind The Infinity Call, has the absolute best way to wake up first thing—no caffeine required. And, yes, it involves a little Beyonce (or Taylor Swift, or really whoever is rocking your world these days).

“I start every day with dancing,” Morris says. “The feelings and thoughts right after waking tend to dictate how the rest of the day goes. Dancing first thing is a great way to make sure that, regardless of what anyone else is bringing to the the world that day, you’re bringing your best—and Beyonce’s best.”

Not only is loud music the perfect all-natural wake-up call, but the movement will get your blood flowing and target those muscles that have been stiff all night, Morris explains. And if you have a roommate or neighbors you don’t want to disturb? Just throw on a pair of headphones and turn up the volume.

Check out Kelly Morris’ early morning dance session to this classic jam below.
