Even if it’s just doing some simple yoga and stretches, exercising each morning is the best way to ensure a boost in your mood and your energy.
Head out for a run, complete a quick workout or head out for a morning walk, all count towards a brighter day.
Although it can be tricky to exercise in the morning, after one week of doing so, you’ll soon find that you slip into a great routine!
Hydration is directly linked to overall well being, and running low on fluids can often result in headaches, muscle spasms and overall fatigue.
After eight hours sleeping with no drink, it’s important that you dehydrate your body as soon as you wake up to ensure a clear head and a healthy mind.
Ice cold water is a great option, as it can wake you up from the inside out, try splashing some on your face for a quick energy boost.
A healthy routine can still include a cup of morning coffee. Coffee can be great as a morning beverage, skip the dairy and sweeteners for a healthy pick me up.
When it comes to starting your day, it’s important to face your day ahead with a positive mindset. This can be achieved in a variety of ways.
Whether that’s reading positive affirmations, meditating, or ringing a close friend of relative.
All of these can be brilliant for boosting your mood.
If you’re still struggling to get moving, opt for a morning playlist!
Playing happy songs in the morning is a great way to boost your mood and awaken your senses.
A great day starts with a great breakfast.
When choosing what to eat each morning, it’s important to focus on whole foods, which will fuel you until lunchtime.
Focus on slow release carbs like oats, these can be prepared the night before to ensure that you can grab them in the morning fast, or go for protein based meals like eggs, peanut butter or protein powder based smoothies – for long lasting energy up to lunchtime.
Have a great day!
