Good habits can totally change your life.
These basic morning habits are totally essential and cannot be compromised on. Read on.
1. Drink Water
First things first.
Body is dehydrated very badly when you wake up. As a result, your body needs more water on waking up. Have a lot of water and nourish each thirsty cell of your body. Have plain water, or lemon water with a dash of honey.
How do you like getting hydrated early in the morning ? Warm water ? Copper water? No water? Little water? 😄
2. Be grateful and think positive thoughts
How do you feel when you wake up?
Happy or sad?
And what are your thoughts for the initial few minutes? Positive or negative?
Are you ready to jump out of bed to kick start your day? Yes or no?
Is every new day exciting or is it as regular as any other day?
These are simple questions which will help you to understand yourself better. Ask these questions to yourself. What are your answers to these questions usually?
Your morning thoughts are very powerful. And they set the tone for your entire day.
Think of good things right in the morning to attract goodness whole day.
Think of waking up healthy. Think of your family members waking up fit and fine. Think of the food you are going to eat. When you think of the things you have and appreciate them, you are grateful and thankful. And that’s a beautiful feeling. And when you get used to this feeling, you would not want to crib for anything and you would love to start your day right. Do you agree?
Sure, you have the entire day and there’s no need to rush to exercise. But there’s nothing like sweating it out right in the morning. Your body loves it. When you sleep for hours together, your body craves to move and move some more.
While you might be lazy initially, but once you are done and dusted with your workout, you do feel good, don’t you?
Move. Walk. Run. Jog. Do yoga. Go to gym. Dance your butt off. Do whatever you love to do.
And you don’t have to worry about your schedules. Do as much as is feasible.
10 minutes. 20 minutes. Small progress is better than no progress.
4. Have healthy breakfast
Have a healthy and nourishing breakfast. Load up your body with foods rich in proteins and good carbs. Have fruits.
Fuel up. Fuel up some kickass goodness in you. Because you need energy to shine for the entire day.
Make time for that first meal of your day.
5. Map out your day
What all do you want to do today?
Strike off the things off your to-do-list.
What ever you want to do, just strategize your day a bit. You never know, 10 minutes invested in doing so in the morning, could save a lot of time later through out the entire day.
Don’t like to keep a diary? Make notes in your phone. How about that?
There are endless things I could have added to the list for your mornings to be better. But These, according to me, are the ones which are extremely important and cannot be compromised on.
What do you guys think? What are your favourite morning practices?
Apart from snoozing the alarm button and sleeping extra 😆
