Habits for A Healthier Morning
Establishing good habits for a healthier morning makes the rest of the day easier. Good sleep habits and an effective morning routine can help you to meet every day refreshed and energized. If you have been waking up groggy and struggling to get through your day, establishing a routine at bedtime can help.
Here are 3 other habits for a healthier morning
- Sleep well. Adults need a solid 7-9 hours of sleep per night. If you struggle to fall asleep, remember that your body and brain work best with a set time to wake up and go to sleep. Sleep is also the most effective when you get approximately the same amount every night.
- Wake Up. If you can, wake up to natural sunlight. This helps to tell your body that it is time to wake up and sets a natural rhythm to your routine. Also, try making time in the morning to move. Going for a short walk or starting your day with a gentle yoga routine sets the tone for your day ahead.
- Get Going. Yes, breakfast is still the most important meal of the day. A healthy meal in the morning is key to staying satiated and resisting cravings throughout your day. If you are short on time, prep breakfast the night before. Once you are up and moving, try tackling your hardest task first. Get the hard stuff out of the way and the rest of your day will feel like a breeze!
