Starting the day off on the right foot can make a huge difference to how we feel physically and emotionally. There are certain things that I like to do in the mornings to put a spring in my step and help me achieve a healthier lifestyle. Some things have become so engrained into my morning routine that they have become daily rituals. Having a morning routine is a great way to make healthy habits become a natural part of your day to help create a healthier lifestyle. Today I’m sharing my own healthy morning habits that I’ve personally found to be beneficial for my mind, body and soul.
THROW YOUR ALARM CLOCK OUT THE WINDOW
Maybe not literally and I know that this will not work for some, especially for those heavy sleepers out there. Waking up naturally rather than shocking your body to wake up is far better as your body has had the amount of rest that it needs, bringing your body gently into a new day.
GET UP AND MOVE
I’m definitely a morning exercise person and I feel that this works best for me and it has lots of added benefits too. Not only does it boost your metabolism, but it also means you are less likely to skip a workout and it gives you an energy boost to help you jump-start your day.
WARM WATER WITH LEMON
Drinking a cup of warm water and lemon before breakfast has become one of my favourite morning rituals. I always feel like I’ve given my body a mini detox, especially if I’ve had a heavy and indulgent meal the night before.
EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST
The saying goes that you should ‘eat breakfast like a king‘ and it is by far the most important meal of the day. Give your body a healthy and delicious start to the day with a nourishing and satisfying breakfast that will even have royalty’s stamp of approval. A green smoothie full of your favourite ingredients, porridge with lots of toppings, Greek yoghurt with fruit and toast topped with nut butter are all perfect healthy starts to your day.
LISTEN TO YOUR FAVOURITE SONGS
Listening to your favourite music in the morning is a great way to have a positive start to your day. A funky beat or motivational lyrics can be really uplifting and such a mood booster. You could even squeeze in a cheeky little dance whilst you’re making that fabulous healthy breakfast.
