Morning routine menu – A wellness lifestyle “cuisine”
“Just 5 more minute”, “it’s still early” – words and decisions pop into your head, you’re wrapped in a warm blanket. Uh oh! You wake up late again and have to hurry up – rush into the day.
Sounds familiar? Why is the morning so uncomfortable? If you’ve asked that question to yourself, luckily, there are a few ways to make mornings easier. Are you ready to read through?
The secret to a pleasant morning is to keep your first waking hour as regular as possible for several weeks. The more we struggle to make decisions, the more energy we expend. It’s important to have a consistent morning routine to avoid “decision fatigue” at the start of the day.
A morning routine can boost your energy, productivity, and positivity. It also creates motivation, helping the brain function at optimal levels to support work throughout the day. Here is a “morning routine menu” for those who dont have one.
Slowly wake up. Open the curtains to let in the light, maybe listen to some of your favorite songs and do some gentle stretching.
Make the bed
Making your bed clean is a great way to start your day, and you’ll be satisfied when you come home at the end of the day.
Drink a glass of water
Water the plants (If you don’t have one yet – buy a pot)
It will be a pleasant feeling to water your plants in the morning, not only for the plants but also for your own mind.
Practice deep breathing or meditation
Awaken the body
Take a COLD SHOWER
“Believe me, the short-term discomfort is well worth the euphoria, alertness, and increased focus that follows,” says Tim Gray, Psychobiology Optimization Psychologist Health said.
Sip a glass of kombucha
Make your to-do list
As you can see, from the time you wake up until you arrive at work, the process takes 1 hour. While finding the extra time can be tough, you’ll enjoy the rewards throughout the day. Many people hate waking up early, but I hope this routine can help your morning feel better.
