Try getting up a bit earlier, so you have some time to yourself (as little as 10 to 15 minutes may be enough!). In addition to giving you a boost of energy and good humour for the next few hours, these valuable moments will make you feel good and help you feel calm and more relaxed.
Here are six things you can do to feel good in body and mind all day long.
Drinking a glass a water is one of the simplest things you can do, yet it’s probably the one that has the most benefits!"
Drinking water after fasting activates your metabolism, stimulates toxin elimination and contributes to a clear complexion and luminous skin. Being well hydrated also helps your brain wake up, so you feel alert and ready to face the day.
Make it a habit not to pick up your phone until you’ve completed all the steps of your morning routine and ideally after breakfast. Thanks to this small action, you’ll start your days off less stressed, more relaxed and in a better mood.
Do something that makes you feel good, whether it’s a few stretches in the living room, a short walk outside or some yoga poses. Each of these simple actions will provide a boost of energy for the coming day.
Take a few minutes each morning to read a few pages of a book that makes you feel good, listen to a podcast about wellness or health, do a short meditation, say some positive affirmations aloud or write down your thoughts in a notebook. There are countless options; the key is to do something that makes you happy and will have positive repercussions on the rest of your day.
A morning routine wouldn’t be complete without a healthy breakfast. It really is the foundation for a good day. Eating a balanced meal in the morning will not only make it easier to concentrate, but it will make you feel better about yourself as well as more energetic.
It will also help you avoid mood swings, memory problems and cravings later in the day and stabilize your sugar level and even reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
