I’ll let you in on a secret…
While eating a nutritious diet, exercising regularly, and sleeping plenty are important… There’s one key aspect of remaining vibrant into your later years that many neglect:
How you start your day.
How you begin your day sets the tone for the rest of your day, and can be a determining factor in whether or not you eat well, exercise, and get the rest you need.
Which is why morning routines are crucial in keeping you healthy.
And today, I’m sharing the exact routine to use with you:
Making your bed sets the tone for the rest of your day, signaling to your brain that it’s time to start your morning.
Not only that, but you also start your day off with productive, positive energy that you can carry through the rest of your day.
Need proof? One study found that participants who decluttered and organized their rooms were more likely to report feeling happy and satisfied with their lives.
After a night of rest your body needs hydration.
Aside from hydration, drinking water can also help flush out any toxins your body processed overnight, help your joints wake up for the day, and more, including:
- Improved digestion so that you’re able to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat that day.
- Decreased hunger levels, which can mean fewer cravings.
- More energy so that you can tackle your day with vitality.
If you’re taking supplements, it’s crucial that you take them consistently—otherwise their effects will be diminished.
By having a set time in the morning to take your supplements, you can ensure you never miss a dose, and enjoy their maximum benefit.
Overnight, your muscles can tighten up—especially if you lie in the same position all night.
And there’s nothing worse than waking up stiff, sore, and feeling like the Tin Man…
Which is why I always take 5 minutes in the morning to stretch, often by following a routine like this.
By stretching your muscles first thing in the morning, you’ll help have more energy throughout the day, improve your posture, and prevent injury.
The many health benefits of Vitamin D aren't the only reason to soak up some sun first thing in the morning…
Sunshine first thing in the morning has been proven to boost your mood, energy levels, and even help you sleep at night.
If there’s still no morning sunshine where you live or it’s too cold to go outside, I suggest looking into Sunlight Therapy Lamps.
They’re a cheap and easy way of getting some much-needed light at any time of the year.
The best way to drink coffee in my opinion?
With a dash of cinnamon.
In addition to adding a little flavor, cinnamon has been found to promote healthy brain function, improve digestion, and lower blood-sugar levels.
Plus, it’s been shown to fire up your metabolism and help you burn fat.
And that's it—there’s a quick and easy morning routine for you to boost your health.
