We’ve all had those days when we feel overwhelmed, stressed and just plain blah. This feeling can be hard to shake off if you’re like me. But there are ways to help yourself feel better — even if the issue is more mental than physical! Here are 8-morning habits that will help you feel awesome all-day.
Intentionally wake up early
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to wake up early intentionally. Wake up at 5:30 or 6 am, and then go for a walk or workout before work. You’ll get more done in less time, feel energized and refreshed as opposed to tired and stressed out, have more time on your hands after work (which is often spent feeling guilty about having “wasted” an hour by sleeping), and have time left over at night to explore what interests you during a commute home from work. If this sounds like something that would help improve your life more than just saving money on commuting costs alone—then it’s worth trying!
Wake up without an alarm (if possible)
This is a great habit of starting and will help you feel awesome all day long! You can also try setting your phone or computer off at certain times every day, like 5 am or 7 pm (and then 15 minutes before). If that doesn’t work for you, try leaving it off for a week, then see if the habit sticks. Don’t use an alarm clock for anything other than setting one time each morning so that you wake up naturally instead of by sound or visual cues (like flashing lights).
Make your bed
Making your bed is a great way to start the day. It makes you feel better, helps you look good, and makes the room smell fresh! Calling this a habit might be overstating, but ensuring that your sheets are clean and neat is still an important part of getting ready for the day. By keeping them in order, you’ll feel better about yourself and look forward to going to bed each night.
Go on a brisk walk or jog
If you’re like most people, your morning routine is probably filled with caffeine and sugar. That’s why it’s so important to get moving in the morning. There are also vitamins and supplements that you can take to jumpstart your day. Visit this page to find out more.
A brisk walk or jog is an excellent way for beginners to start their day off by engaging with their bodies, which will help them feel better throughout the day. It also helps fight depression by improving mood and increasing energy levels by ensuring no naps during work hours (which can be very difficult if someone struggles with depression).
While running isn’t necessary for everyone (especially if you have joint issues), walking will give anyone who does it enough exercise without putting too much strain on their joints or muscles.
Don’t check your phone right away
As soon as you wake up, resist the urge to check your phone. We are animals of habit – and we tend to our phones first thing in the morning. That’s why I never grab my phone when I wake up. Trust me on this one: give yourself 15-20 minutes before you even touch your phone. Most of your friends are sleeping anyway, and there’s no better time to meditate, journal and just be yourself. Don’t check your phone immediately if you want to be an awesome person.
Meditation is a great way to start the day. It can help you feel more relaxed and focused, which will help you get a better night’s sleep. And meditation can even be used as a tool for anxiety and stress reduction. Meditation also teaches you to become more mindful of your surroundings, which is always good!
Don’t skip Coffee
You may be thinking, “Don’t I already know this? It’s 5 a.m. I’m halfway through my first cup of Coffee.” Well yes. But if you’re like us, you also know that mornings are some of the most important hours of your day. The reason is simple: breakfast is one of the best things we can do for ourselves—and it’s also an opportunity to start building habits that will help us throughout our day.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not hungry at all when it comes time for breakfast; don’t worry about eating until your stomach cries out for food! Just make sure that whatever meal plan or menu plan is being followed by those around you (if any) does not include any foods high in sugar or fat—such as processed cereal boxes filled with sugar-filled marshmallows or greasy bacon strips smothered in fat-rich sauce—because these types of meals will only make things worse later on down the road when they’re consumed as parts of normal meals throughout each day.
Do some squats, push-ups and sit-ups
Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your health. It helps to build muscle mass, which makes you stronger and more confident in everyday life. Exercise also can lower blood pressure, reduce stress levels and improve sleep quality.
Squatting is a great exercise for strengthening core muscles because it works the legs and the backside muscles that support them when standing or walking upright (sometimes called “core”). You should start with just 10 repetitions per set until you feel comfortable enough to increase it slightly—that’s where I am right now in my fitness journey! In addition to squats, there are other exercises such as lunges (legs), hip thrusts (thighs), and glute bridge variations such as single-leg glute bridges or reverse barbell hip thrusts – all great options if performed correctly by someone who knows what they’re doing!
It would help if you now had a better idea of creating an awesome morning routine. Please go out and do some of the things we’ve discussed today, and keep a regular schedule that works for you! We hope this has helped create the morning routine that will remind you of why you love being alive each day.
