15 Changes To Your Morning Routine That Will Bring Unforeseen Awesomeness.
We don't know about you, but we could certainly use an extra boost of energy in the morning to make our day a little easier. It seems like every time we drag ourselves out of bed, it feels like we've left our soul somewhere in dreamland. Well, it turns out that there are some habits that many of us do that is totally salting our energy. But with a few tweaks to your morning routine, you could actually end up having an amazing morning and an even better day. So, here are a few tricks that help you get your day started right for a change.
#1. Go to sleep with your curtains halfway open for a change.
So, instead of letting your alarm clock wake you up, the sun's natural rays will do the trick, and in the process, tell your brain that it's time to put the brakes on melatonin production, and hit the gas on adrenaline production.
#2. Try starting your day off an hour earlier than usual, at least on weekdays.
This is perfect for anyone who's not a morning person, because you could do a little exercise, give yourself more time to enjoy your breakfast. And feel less anxious about getting to work on time, which will definitely improve your mood.
#3. Soak your body, mind, and spirit with gratitude in the morning.
As you bathe, make yourself some breakfast and get dressed, focus on the positive things in your life. At least, you have a job, and money to buy food, and pay your bills. So, what if you're not rich? You're better off than some people.
#4. Take a morning walk before you go to work, school, or start out your day.
Exposing yourself to sunlight resets your internal clock and gives you the energy boost you'll need to start your day off right. Plus, you'll reduce the risk of a heart attack and stroke by 35% if you walk a total of three hours a week.
#5. Whatever you do, or however you feel in the morning, make your bed.
Alright, so it's not exactly a jog around the block, but it'll get your body moving in the morning. It'll also fill you up with a sense of accomplishment, which is not a bad way to feel in the morning, and can affect the rest of your day in a positive way.
