Below are some simple tips to help you start the day right:
Don't Hit The Snooze Button
Keep your phone out of reach, so you have to get out of bed to shut off your alarm.
It might sound brutal, but breaking up with your snooze button will make a huge difference in your morning routine and let’s face it — some of us need all the help we can get.
Embrace The Light
After you’ve gotten up, open the curtains and let natural light in as soon as possible: Getting those sun signals to your brain will help your body wake up all on its own.....say thanks to nature! :)
Skip Social MediaDon’t open the Instagram, or any social media for that matter, in order to stay productive and present.
We’ve all gone down that social media rabbit hole where you think, “I’m just going to check this one thing…” and then 30 minutes have gone by.
Resist the urge.
You can do it.
Do a Stretching Routine
Performing a morning stretching routine will help you to loosen your muscles after sleeping, while increasing blood flow to your muscles. Taking ten minutes to do a few yoga poses will allow you to connect your mind, body, and breath in preparation for the day that’s ahead.
