Your entire day may be influenced by how you spend your morning. Here are a few healthy living habits you may integrate into your morning routine:
1. GET MOVING
Start your day with some physical activity and “ME” time. Spending some time stretching right after you get up is another way to combat morning grogginess if you don't have time to exercise. This increases blood flow to your arms and legs, which may make you feel limber and energized as the day begins.
2. DRINK A GLASS OF WATER/TEA
Start your morning off with a tall glass of water before you pour yourself a cup of coffee. Hydration is important for our organs, tissues and bodily functions. Be sure that you take care of your basic health before you begin filling your body with other healthy beverages.
3. EAT BREAKFAST
A balanced breakfast that includes protein, complete grains, and healthy fats can help you get through the day. This starts our inner engine and gives us the energy we need to start our day in work, school or play.
4. LIMIT ELECTRONICS
It might be alluring to open your laptop to check your email, Facebook, or the news to start your day, but doing so can unintentionally disrupt your morning and, by extension, the remainder of your day. Try a more engaged, less passive activity first thing in the morning instead of using the internet, such spending 10 minutes journaling or listening to motivational music.
5. MAKE A PLAN FOR DINNER
Having all the ingredients on hand can help you make better food choices and eat healthier.
Lastly, make an effort to follow a consistent sleep and wake-up schedule each day. Our bodies want for routine and will inevitably adopt healthy behaviors as they do. The days when you don't feel your best are the days when routines are set in place, not the days when you do. Your body will recover from illnesses more quickly and be less prone to catch them in the first place if you follow healthy practices.
