5 Morning Habits to Start Your Day Right
Today you’re going to need some extra time in your current routine to establish some new habits for yourself. These new habits can help you find a bit more peace in your mind and a whole lot of joy in the day ahead.
Wake Up Earlier
Give yourself at least an extra hour each day to establish your new habits, this quiet time will give you a new sense of peace and allow you to complete your new habits without interruption. A new found joy for the morning sunrise just might be in your future.
Drink a Glass of Warm Water
Drinking a glass of warm water before your morning coffee is an excellent way to get your body going, it’s like oil for the body as it goes to work lubricating all of your internal systems. Drinking warm water gives your cellular system a chance to wake up and begin working and it's the jump start to your morning beauty routine.
Do a Stretching Routine
Stretch in the morning to wake your muscles and get them ready for the day. Find a routine that allows you to slowly wake the muscles and yet revives your system. Ten to fifteen minutes is all you need to wake your body and release those tight muscles giving you a well prepared body for your day.
Listen to Inspirational Music or an Audio-book
Starting your morning off with music you find peaceful or a book you find inspirational is the perfect way to set yourself up for success. It can give you something to look forward to in the morning, and helps you establish a mindset that is filled with purpose. Our minds are always ready for knowledge and inspiring music or books can give us that fresh approach each day.
List Your 3 To-Dos For The Day
In this busy life we can sometimes get overwhelmed by what we need to accomplish every single day. Writing down 3 things that must get done today gives you a personal guideline to follow and it can remove that feeling of being overwhelmed from your subconscious mind. This is a great way to relieve the stress of trying to remember all those things you think you need to do. Studies show that if you write it down you are 7 times more likely to complete your task.
Take a Walk
Getting in a few minutes of walking each morning is not only good for the body but it's good for the soul. Walk with purpose for ten to twenty minutes each day and enjoy the scenery around you, soak in all that has been given to you and take the time to think about what brings you joy. Even in difficult times we have much to be grateful for. Once you start a walking routine you will find yourself looking forward to it each and every day.
Giving yourself the gift of an extra hour per day to focus on you is one of the greatest gifts you will ever give yourself. Enjoy your day by starting it off right.
