Your morning can make-up or break-up your day. It is really hard to get up early and follow a regime when you are having enough on your plate already. But a healthy lifestyle doesn't only change your body, it changes your mind, attitude and your mood. Before we start on healthy habits or morning rituals, let's take a moment and know the importance of having a morning regime.
Significance Of A Morning Routine
Having a morning ritual, first of all, gives you more productive hours to spend on your body, soul and mind. It gives you an opportunity to be organized for the rest of the day. The quiet ambience and fresh air will give you a positive vibration. Morning rituals give you the right energy to tackle the haste of the day.
Mostly all the successful people follow the habit of an “Early-Riser”. From famous people like Apple CEO Tim Cook, Michelle Obama, Narendra Modi, Akshay Kumar to Olympic athletes, artist, entertainers, singers, entrepreneurs all get up early and follow their morning routine.
Hence here are 7-morning rituals which will make your day
Everything in the list is super easy and can be achieved in a short span of time. There is no requirement for any expenses to start. Additionally, these small daily improvements are the key to long-term results.
So let's get started. 💪
Drink A Glass Of Lemon Water
Drinking a glass of water with lemon is an amazing way to get your body going, Lemon will boost your metabolism, helping you to maintain a healthy weight. It helps in digestion, prevents you from getting sick and it will give you a Vitamin C boost. It will make your bowel movement regular. It freshens the breath too. Hydration is not a direct benefit of the lemon but rather, drinking flavoured water might entice you to consume more of it.
Clean your Face and Mouth
Cleaning your teeth and tongue is very essential. To avoids all the mouth infection, cavities and other tooth problems. Everyone brushes their teeth but very few will clean their skin in the morning. As every day your skin is ageing and process of cleaning your face before and after the bed is an excellent way to extenuate the bacteria, dirt or makeup residue. Make sure you use the appropriate Face cleanser which suits your skin best.
Drink Herbal Tea
For centuries people are drinking herbal teas for their great taste and incredible medicinal properties. Herbal teas are powerful antioxidant and have both mental and physical benefits. It's the easiest way to detox your body and help you enhance your immunity system. You will feel younger and energetic after getting toxins out of your body.
Do A Stretching Routine
It's said to enjoy the glow of good health you must exercise. You can follow any type of workout for yourself. Here are some morning workouts you can try
But I always prefer Yoga over any other form of exercise in the morning as it gives you relaxation and relieves anxiety. Yoga has been practised for years and it's not like other exercises which are trends or fads. It is really easy to start with and you can see a huge impact on your body and mind. (you can get routines on YouTube very easily if you want to learn)
Meditation For A Few Minutes
Meditation is an act where you have to sit and dissolve your mind. Here's what happens when you meditate :
It will charge you up for the day
It helps you counteract the stress
Your perspective will become broad and balanced
You will become optimistic
Listen To Uplifting Music
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” ~ Billy Joel
Music can influence different moods. It can lift up your spirits high, make you move your heels. Music will make you happy and reduce stress levels. Scientist says it even reduces depression. So guys just turn it on....(Crawling Back to you-"Arctic Monkeys", Take me to church-"Hozier" current favs)
Review Your Goals
Think about your life goals. Set your goals. Keep track of what you want. Review your goals daily. Because setting your goals is like a road map, you just have to follow it. The better the map and more often checked sooner you reach your destination.
I hope you guys liked my ideas for the healthy start of the day. I know it's hard to get up early when there is a lot of work to be done at the end of the day. Believe me, It's really hard for me too. But if you just do it for one week, your body and mind will automatically become habitual of the change. And after a week you won't even notice that you are already getting up early. These morning rituals will change your lifestyle and will give you a better perspective about the productive hours and little "ME" time in the morning.
