What you do in the morning goes a long way to determining the outlook of your day. So it is key for you to engage in productive activities in order to boost your morning routines. Check out these great activities to help you switch it up:
Try and establish a morning routine
Having some sort of set routine that you stick to every day can make the mornings much easier–once you get into the pattern of doing something, getting up to do it will be a habit, not a chore.
After sleep during which you lay for hours, taking the time to slowly move your muscles will be a satisfying start to the day. Just stretch.
Start with protein instead of dairy
Diary is a common breakfast, but it’s not excellent for the early mornings. Food is your body’s fuel, and protein is the best choice to kick off your day. So, try having a protein-rich meal like eggs instead.
Start your morning the night before
Spending a few minutes the previous night to get ready for the next day can save you a significant amount of time in the morning. Before going to bed, select what you intend to wear to work and make a quick to-do list with the essential things to get done the next day.
When you wake up your mouth will be dry. This is because you are already dehydrated. Starting your day with a glass of water is a refreshing wake-up call for your muscles and organs.
Have a positive mindset
Having a positive outlook can make all the difference in your day, especially in the morning. Saying a positive affirmation each morning will have you begin each day on a high.
Put your phone away
When you immediately start checking emails, Instagram and Facebook, you go into reactive mode and your morning becomes about responding to others. This is a surefire way to start the day frantic, drained and stressed. Instead, turn your alarm off and leave your phone on your phone until you’ve completed your morning routine.
