We should all
agree that the way you wake up and the first hours after that surely do set the
vibe for the whole day. It is practically impossible to make every morning
perfect. But you can certainly try.
Here are 5 healthy morning habits to make sure you start the day the right way.
- Wake up early.
Yes, waking up early even during your days off doesn’t sound tempting. But if you manage to do that, you will achieve numerous benefits! Firstly, it will be easier for you to get up in the morning for work. Secondly, you will feel better psychologically, because waking up early helps you be more productive.
Of course, this step will be easier, if you fall asleep early the night before. Creating such a habit will affect your overall health, including even the state of your skin.
- But first…water!
Every morning you should find a minute to help your digestive system wake up. The best way to do that is to have a glass of water. You will get extra points, if the water is with lemon. Have breakfast and your morning cup of coffee at least 20-30 minutes after this glass of water. You will soon notice that your digestive system started feeling better on a regular basis. And remember your favourite Rich Piana supplements.
- Make your bed.
This tip is more for your psychological health and it may seem like a useless one. At first.
But the truth is that making your bed first thing in the morning helps you get in the right mood for the day. Firstly, the morning has just started, but you have already accomplished something. And who cares that it is something so small – you feel great anyway. Secondly, making your bed is a simple routine that will help give your brain the signal that a new day has started. No matter how the previous one ended – today is full of new opportunities and you are ready for them.
Sounds boring, right? But exercising doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend half an hour on a silly workout. Choose the one that will help you have fun. Lightly bounce 100 times, for example. This easy exercise is beneficial for your whole body.
Or you can simply turn your favorite music on and dance. Even 5 minutes of intense dancing every morning make a huge difference to your health.
Prefer to relax during your workout? Then 5-7 minutes of stretching is the perfect option for you.
- Spend some quality ‘me’ time.
Waking up early in the morning gives you the chance to not be in a rush. You have plenty of time to relax, plan your day or simply enjoy the routine.
Slowly consuming your breakfast; having a read through your favorite newspaper or taking a minute to write down your to-do list for the day – all the things should involve only you and your thoughts. These little habits can become your own way of meditating and will surely reduce the amount of stress that the day has prepared for you.
