The first hour of your day is no doubt the most important. Whether you wake up and dive into your timeline or, instead, go on a brisk morning jog, how you spend it can significantly impact how you feel for the rest of the day.
So, to guide the day in the positive direction you desire, here are 5 tips to start your day on the right foot!
1.When you wake up, give yourself AT LEAST 15 minutes of no screen time.
Studies show that getting on your phone first thing in the morning can increase your stress & anxiety levels drastically. Being bombarded with emails, texts, news articles, etc. immediately upon waking up can prevent you from starting your day in a calm mindset. Plus, you prime yourself for distraction for the day and interferes with your ability to focus.
We promise, Instagram can wait and is not worth the cost!
2. Drink some water with lemon to freshen you up!
Drinking 8oz of water with lemon first thing in the morning can be super beneficial for digestion and flushing your system of toxins that might’ve sat throughout the night. Plus, you set a positive tone of remaining hydrated throughout the day!
Start with one glass as soon as you get up and finish the day with having reached your water goal!
3.Set your goals for the day
Set aside time to sit down and write down a to-do or goals list. Having a clear mindset of what to expect when you begin the day can reduce anxiety later!
Seemingly super simple and easy yet an extremely effective tool!
Just as stretching is the best way to start any workout, it’s also a great way to wake up your body and prepare for the day. This can increase flexibility, alleviate muscle tightness/pains, and prevent minor injuries.
Tip: The best time to stretch would be right after a warm shower because the water will warm and prepare your muscles for stretching!
5.Take a multivitamin
Taking time to take initiative in caring for your body and prioritizing yourself can always be uplifting. By adding something as simple as a Multivitamin into your daily routine, you can expect to have a better immune system, feel more energized, and to feel empowered
