Make Your Morning GREAT!

_Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower._.png

The way you start your day is just as important as how you end it. It may even be more impactful to start on an uplifting note. Are you tired of waking up on the wrong side of the bed? Learn to incorporate meaningful activities in the morning to put your best foot forward. Try waking up 15 minutes earlier tomorrow and adding one of the listed activities below to brighten and get your day stated on a productive path.

1. Drink Water: When you first wake up make sure to replenish your body with water. We can get dehydrated overnight when sleeping. Drinking water when you wake up gets your metabolism going. Throw in a slice of lemon, cucumber, or mint to jazz up your H2O.

 2. Meditate: Take a few minutes to quiet your brain and truly be at peace. If you’re having trouble tuning worries out try journaling in the morning. Write down your goals for the day and plan out how you can execute them.

3. Get Moving: I know, you would probably rather lay in bed scrolling down your timeline or checking in with what happened overnight in the world. Use your time wisely, even if that means using those 15 extra minutes to take a brisk walk down your block do it! Exercise releases endorphins and those chemicals give your brain a natural high and boost your energy.

4. Eat A Wholesome Breakfast: Life can get busy but remember to take the time to feed your body good nutritious food. It will not only give you energy for the day but it will also nourish your body.

5. Do Something For You: Do something that will make you happy! If that means using the extra 15 minutes to leave out earlier so you’re not rushing to work stressed do it! If you’ve been trying to incorporate reading get started today! This list is totally for you. Customize it so it works best for you!
I challenge you to wake up 15 minutes earlier tomorrow and incorporate something from this list. Feel free to modify anything! This is about you and your own personal journey.
