Why not try some ginseng tea instead of coffee in the morning or some ginseng food/snack during the day or make some homemade ginseng skincare and see what a difference it makes in your day.
1. Ginseng tea: 3-6g ginseng/day. 1g to 2g ginseng powder mixed with a cup of hot water. You can add a little honey/jam to have easy taste. Use hot water, not boiling.

Many people, students or athletics drink ginseng tea while studying or working hardly.
