BECOMING A MORNING PERSON
It doesn't have to be a complicated or daunting task, becoming a morning person is actually really simple if you follow our tips below!
TOP TIPS FOR CREATING A MORNING ROUTINE
TRY WAKING UP 15-30 MINUTES EARLIER
Actually get up and out of bed when your alarm goes off - even a small amount of extra time makes a world of difference when you are trying to establish a morning routine.
STAY OFF YOUR PHONE
For at least the first 30 minutes of your morning - we cannot stress this enough but staying off your phone and any other technology is CRUCIAL, when you check your phone/computer or turn on the news you are allowing other people to potentially dictate how your morning starts and adding unnecessary stress into your morning, by not checking any technology for the first 30 minutes minimum you are taking control of how your day starts.
WASH YOUR FACE
Start with warm water and massage your face then slowly make the water colder and repeat until it is as cold as it can go. This will get rid of any puffiness from sleeping, remove any of the built up crusty “sleep” from your eyes and will energize you.
BRUSH YOUR TEETH (AND SCRAPE YOUR TONGUE)
We shouldn’t have to tell you this but while you sleep bacteria builds up on your teeth and tongue (hello morning breath) so it’s important to get rid of all that before you drink anything and send it all back into your body.
OPEN YOUR BLINDS/CURTAINS
Letting natural light into your house in the morning is one of the easiest ways to wake up your body and energize you!
We always start our day with warm lemon water with pink Himalayan salt (read more on the benefits of lemon water here)
MEDITATE OR TAKE 5 MINUTES TO JUST SIT AND BE STILL
Doing a form of relaxation practice in the morning really sets the tone for your day and if you’re not into mediation deep breathing is one of the easiest ways to instantly calm down your nervous system and change your mood.
MAKE A BEVERAGE YOU ENJOY AND SIP IT SLOWLY
We love coffee over here (or coffee freezies) but you can have whatever you like, just make sure whatever it is that you’re drinking you take the time to actually enjoy it in peace.
WRITE IN A JOURNAL
While you sip your morning beverage is a great time to write down a few things that you are thankful for, your goals for the day (or week) or even just a short sentence about how you’re feeling.
PLAN YOUR DAY
Whether you are self employed or have a 9-5 career, it can still be super beneficial to plan out your day so you can actually see what it looks like on paper.
GET YOUR SWEAT ON AND EAT A BALANCED BREAKFAST
Starting your day with a workout of any kind (even a walk) gets your blood flowing, loosens up your stiff muscles and energizes you and eating a meal balanced in protein, complex carbs, fibre and healthy fat fuels you straight through until lunch and sets you up on a healthy note!
Your morning routine doesn’t have to be perfect or look like this exactly, honestly anything that resembles some kind of structure and routine is a good place to start! Whatever brings your morning positivity and relaxation is going to be more than enough, all you have to do is commit to a couple small things and be consistent with them every single day until they stick.
Good luck, - @tubify
