#7 Keep yourself properly hydrated
Proper hydration is the key to keeping your body functioning optimally.
Drinking enough liquids and water throughout the day will keep your brain functions up to date making your cognitive process easier, controlling your mood, and anxiety feelings. Moreover, water intake makes your stools easy to dispose of, will keep your energy levels high, and even aid you to lose weight (5).
Add to your morning routines a good glass of water – preferably warm – with a slice of lime – if preferred – to refresh your bread, and add vitamin C to your organism.
#8 Make enough time to get to work
Start off your day with the right foot by planning the perfect waking up schedule.
If you wake up early enough to get some exercises done, to eat your breakfast at peace, to set your daily goals, and do your gratitude practice before rushing to your car or subway to get to work, your overall mood and energy will improve and will help you to become more productive at work, and in the rest of the day.
Find out your perfect waking time, and work towards positive habit creation around it; so you can start enjoying your mornings again.
#9 Take deep breaths throughout the day
Breathing exercises are always a good way to decrease your stress levels and keep your anxiety manageable throughout the day.
Proper breathing can also improve your focus and cognitive functions by adding extra fresh air to your blood and brain, as well as helping you to sleep faster and deeper (6).
#10 Practice a healthy sleeping schedule
Instead of binge-watch streaming series or checking your latest friend updates on the social networks, you could try to establish a healthy sleeping schedule of at least 7 hours per night to contribute to improving your mood and energy levels for the next day.
Sleeping well will improve your cognitive functions, give you extra energy, improve your overall mood, make you feel more focused and sharp for the task of the day, and aid to improve stress and anxiety symptoms, plus many more (7).
As you can see, there are multiple benefits to improving your morning habits to your mental and physical health. Are you ready to take your wellness to the next level?
