Do you pay attention to what you actually do when you wake up? And I am not talking about things like making your bed or brushing your teeth. I believe that is already everyone’s morning routine. But what about doing some things that sound really like no big deal but end up boosting your mood in an amazing way? Well, if you are not sure what I am talking about then follow me while I give you some tips on how to improve your mornings.
Stretching feels good any time of the day, but it is extra relieving in the morning. It has a plethora of health benefits such as improving your flexibility, relieving stress as well as improving your blood flow. So, before you head to the bathroom, stay in your bed for a few more minutes and stretch your muscles a bit.
2. Drink water
Maybe you’ve had enough of people telling you how good water it, but I feel like it doesn’t get said enough. After being asleep for hours, your body could really use some fresh water.
I live by the golden rule: never skip breakfast! That is when your metabolism starts working and it helps you burn calories throughout the whole day. Besides, having a healthy breakfast has so many other benefits for you, so why not? Always make sure to wake up half an hour before you normally would so you have enough time to have breakfast.
When you wake up in the morning, you tend to be quite vulnerable. Whether you put on some upbeat music or just something you enjoy, waking up to music will put you in a good mood right from the start.
5. Don’t go on your phone
When you wake up, please don’t check your phone first thing when you open your eyes. Instead, try putting it on do not disturb mode. That way people who need to talk to you will be able to reach you, but your morning won’t be interrupted by casual notifications.
This is yet another thing that doesn’t get said enough. Put everything away and read at least two chapters to engage your mind.
What about you? What do you do first thing in the morning?
