Do you hate getting up in the morning? You might not be a morning person but most of us have morning hours for school or work. Waking up and getting a good start can make or break your day. Do you keep hitting snooze and drink a ton of coffee? That may not be the best thing to do. Here are some tips for morning habits that will make your day better.
Don’t hit snooze. Chose a time to wake up and stick to it. I personally find if I get right up out of better I feel more awake quickly.
Stretch your body. This can help with flexibility and circulation. It can also help with chronic pain, but don’t do more than you can manage.
Drink water. You haven’t had anything to drink in about 8 hours, and your body needs water. It is important to stay hydrated.
Eat breakfast. This is will kickstart your metabolism which will help you burn calories. You won’t be as hungry later in the day. Eating breakfast is important for weight loss.
Listen to music. You might like something upbeat or something relaxing. Whatever you choose make sure it is a feel good playlist. This will get you ready for the day.
Don’t look at your phone right away. We are always online, take a break. At least enjoy some of your morning before looking at it.
Read. Reading something positive will help put you in a good mood. Reading is great habit to get into at any time of day.
You may start liking mornings a lot more after following these tips. Getting sleep is important, but so is starting the day in a positive frame of mind. If you have a great morning routine you will perform better at work or school. Self care is important and I personally enjoy my mornings the most out of any time of the day. I hope you find these tips helpful and you start having better mornings.
