Have you ever noticed that how do you start your morning- snoozing your alarm, missing healthy breakfast and rushing yourself out of the door to be on time for your office? Actually, this type of schedule is not good to follow as it will create chaos for you and your health in the long run. Yes! Just give it a thought once. So, it’s high time to start your morning with a good plan to develop some of the good habits in order to be healthy and fit.
Morning habits actually matter a lot, they help you achieve more. They keep you from thoughtlessly stumbling through your day and make sure you get the most important things done in the right manner.
But then you think, whether you will be able to follow a strict plan each day or not. Yes! It’s difficult but not impossible it’s just that it needs a bit of discipline and you are ready to go.
Here are some of the morning routines that you should start your day with:
1. Give yourself a no screen time for at least 15 minutes after you wake up
You may be resisted to check your important emails and social media accounts when you are turning off your alarm which you set up on your phone. And then you keep on scrolling for even hours. But are you aware of how much time are you wasting doing that each day? Try to keep your phone away in the morning and try to walk instead.
2. Drink a glass of lemon water daily
Drinking a glass of lukewarm water with freshly squeezed lemon has some great benefits. This is the first thing you should try to do every morning. It not only aids your digestion but also helps you to burn your extra fat.
Drink a glass of it as you wake up and give a gap of at least 30 minutes after drinking this. This might be difficult for caffeine addicts, but trust me once you start following this on a regular basis you would surely love it.
3. Set the goals for the day
While stretching in your bed and planning what to wear? You should also try to set some feasible goals for the day, but limit them to three. This might include packing your lunch and deciding not to eat out to save your money, committing yourself to your regular gym or yoga class or something like that.
4. Stretch a little
Although it’s important, many of you ignore this thing despite knowing its benefit. You should stretch your body at least for 30 minutes or one hour if possible to keep yourself healthy and fit. You can practice some yoga asanas in the park or in your bed if you are too lazy to go out.
Doing meditation every day will make your concentration power more keen and sharp. However, you might find it a bit annoying or boring if you are not in a habit of doing it on a daily basis. Don’t worry, if you are not in a habit of doing meditation, try to develop it as soon as you can to get the benefits.
