5 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day

Hi Everyone!  Today I’m sharing five healthy ways that you can start your day.  I’m not a morning person at all! Anyone that has ever known me knows that.  Stay out of my way in the morning!  But, I am trying to be a morning person, and I do follow the same routine each morning.  I have been bad about hitting snooze and staying in bed until I just absolutely have to get up.  And that throws off my whole day.  I’m running late, sometimes having to skip breakfast, and then trying to start my day when I’m all out of sorts!  But, the last several months I have been trying to start my day better.  Your morning sets the tone for the whole day.  Here are some healthy ways that you can start your day off with that will leave you feeling energized and ready to tackle your day!  

Wake up 15-30 minutes earlier than you need to.  Don’t hit snooze and actually get up!  This extra time will help you to wake up and get some things done!  That extra little bit of time can make all the difference in the world.  And, if you’re like me you need all the extra time in the morning that you can get!

Drink lemon water.  After being asleep all night, your body needs to rehydrate.  I have a glass of water as soon as I wake up, and then follow it with green tea.  There are so many benefits of drinking lemon water.  It improves digestion, aids in weight loss, and is a great source of vitamin C.  

 

Do a quick workout and get moving.  Just 10 minutes of cardio will get your body moving and awake and will jump start your metabolism. Or, if you don’t want to workout, just spend some time stretching.  

Take time to eat a healthy breakfast.  Don’t skip breakfast.  Eating breakfast will get your metabolism going and it will give you energy and keep you from overeating at lunch.  Make sure to eat something with protein to fill you up.  

Spend a few minutes planning your day.  If you have a plan for the rest of your day, then you are ready to get started. I love having a to-do list so I can cross things off.  That helps me to know for sure what I need to do during the day. If you are organized, you will be motivated to get things done! 

What do you in the mornings?

    Over the years I’ve really come to prefer the mornings! It definitely took time though. I think now that I give myself a full hour in the morning, I feel more put together at the start of the day. Growing up, I’d just wake up like 20 minutes before and roll out of bed and skip breakfast. I also try and take at least 20 minutes of my hour to enjoy breakfast. Having a quiet breakfast before the busyness of the work day starts is helpful for me.
