Are you one of those people who struggle to get out of bed in the morning, hitting the snooze button on your alarm repeatedly? Constructing a morning routine can help you get up and get going, energized and ready to face anything the day may bring.
1. Waking Up
As difficult as it may be, it is important to get out of bed when you wake up. The longer you lie there, the more difficult it will be to get up. So stretch, yawn and then sit up and get out of bed.
It may seem like the last thing you feel like doing when you have just managed to force yourself out of your warm, comfortable bed but exercising will get blood and oxygen flowing to the brain and body giving you the energy you need to get going. You don’t have to perform an intense or lengthy exercise routine, just 5 minutes of stretching should suffice.
3. Food And Beverages
It is inevitable that you will be hungry and thirsty when you wake-up in the morning. Instead of instinctively reaching for that cup of caffeine and sugar laced coffee, rather drink a glass of water first to hydrate. You can have your cuppa coffee later to provide you with the extra stimulation and energy you need to kick-start your day.
You’ve probably heard it a thousand times before, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Stay away from quick snacks that have empty calories and use this time to get as many of the essential nutrients that your body needs to function properly for the rest of the day.
There are three key steps to constructing any good morning routine:
– Get Up!
– Hydrate and Energize!
Give your routine a few days, and you should find yourself waking up better.
