Be the brightest and best version of yourself every single day.
Mornings. Love them or hate them. You’re going to have to deal with them every single day. Rather than hit the snooze button on your phone repeatedly, why not create an invigorating morning routine that has you bounding out of bed, ready to start the day?
It’s possible with a little practice, and we’re going to show you how. This short guide covers some of the easiest and most approachable ways to become a ‘Morning Person’ right away.
Give Your Morning Routine a Revamp By Adopting the Following Healthy Habits
Our five healthy habits to start your morning out right are listed below. You can begin building them into your routine right away. As these habits become routine then you can add additional habits whenever you see fit. Before you know it, you’ll have a custom morning routine that motivates you to get out of bed in the morning and approach your day with excitement.
#1: Prepare the night before so you don’t feel rushed.
Spending 15 minutes in the evening preparing for the next day buys you some needed extra time each morning to do something good for yourself. By laying out your clothing and preparing your lunch before you go to sleep, you’re giving yourself the perfect start to an organized and healthy morning.
#2: Wake up a half hour earlier than you normally do to enjoy some ‘me-time’ before launching into your routine.
How many times have you put something off that you wanted to do because you didn’t have room in your schedule to do it? It’s time to take back your free-time by waking up a half hour early each day so you can read, journal, pray or meditate, and enjoy your coffee in peace before your family wakes up or your pets need to go outside.
#3: Stretch your body first thing in the morning and maybe take a brisk walk around the block.
Yoga helps your body be more limber. It also calms the nervous system and makes you feel energized without the need for caffeine. Try doing a few poses or simple stretches before taking a quick walk or jog.
#4: Write down five things you’re grateful for each day.
Having an attitude of gratitude gets you everywhere in life. Focus on the blessings that you have and things that you are grateful for at the start of every single day. Keeping a journal to contain them will allow you to revisit them whenever needed.
#5: Make time to eat a healthy breakfast packed with protein before working or running errands.
It’s among the best options available for you to choose from each day. Breakfast helps restore your body’s natural fuel reserves and gives you the motivation to keep moving up until it’s time for lunch. Remember, a breakfast packed with protein will keep you full longer.
Make Health and Happiness Your Number One Priority Each Day
How you start your morning can significantly impact the rest of your day. Why not choose to be the happiest and healthiest version of yourself possible? By doing so, you remain focused on the things that matter most and don’t get distracted with mundane details that keep you from reaching your goals. You’re able to achieve more of the things you set out to do because you’ve built a routine that feels possible and good to you.
