5 Things You Can Do To Get Your Day Off To a Good Start

How you start your morning is what sets the tone for your day. I am used to waking up late, rushing and not spending time for myself. After deciding to wake up early, I find my days to be more peaceful and less stressful. It is vital to make time for yourself in the morning and take full advantage of the day. There are only 24 hours in a day, what will you do with your time?

  1. 1. Drink 8 ounces of water

    When you wake up, drink eight ounces of water. Drinking eight ounces of water helps regulate your digestive track, which will help your overall health and keep your body moving throughout the day. 

  2. 2. Journaling

    Journaling when you wake up can help you gather your thoughts, intentions, goals for the day. If you take 10 min to write down how you're feeling, what you want too accomplish for the day and manifestations, you will have that mentality throughout the day. 

  3. 3. Exercise

    Waking up early to workout may sound dreadful, however it does not need to be a hardcore workout. Just getting your body moving with some light yoga stretches, a jog around the block or dancing in your room will do the job. As long as you are giving your body the chance to make movement, it will be worth it. Doing some sort of physical activity will not only improve your health, but elevate your mood. 

  4. 4. Self Affirmations

    Self love is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Look into the mirror and compliment yourself. Learn to appreciate your body, mind and soul. Saying small affirmations will help start your day off feeling confident and ready to take on the world. 

  5. 5. Eating a healthy breakfast

    It can be hard to find time to make a good breakfast, but waking up early will help you create that time. Eating a well balanced breakfast will help start your day energized with nutrients that will carry you throughout the day. 

Mornings are sacred and should be filled with routines that are benficial to your health and wellbeing. I can personally attest that if you incorporate any of these habits into your morning routine, your day will go a lot better!
