5 Easy Ways To Power Up Your Morning Routine

Energizing morning routine

Are you a morning person that beats the alarm to the punch every time…hopping out of bed ready to take on the day?

Or are you more like me…always craving that extra ten minutes and squinting your eyes as you drag yourself out of bed?

Whichever camp you fall in, what you do after waking up creates a powerful blueprint for your physical wellness. And the truth is – most of us treat our mornings like a rickety shack, hastily cobbled together as we rush towards the rest of our day.

Your Improved Morning Routine

However, all it takes is a few small tweaks to build a solid foundation that can withstand the stress and turbulence of a typical work day. Here are 5 simple (and very doable) tips to propel your morning routine:

1. Drink a glass of lemon water. 

Do this first thing after waking to replenish hydration in your body. Our bodies lose moisture while we sleep, leaving our bodies in a state of dehydration in the morning. Adding lemon to your water helps aid digestion and give you a boost of Vitamin C.

2. Move your body.

Whether a full-blown workout or a walk around the neighborhood, adding moving to your morning will help you feel energized. Movement helps increase circulation, helps you be more present with your body, and promotes cardiovascular health.

3. Give yourself healthy breakfast options.

Eating the right foods for breakfast will give you energy and set the tone for the rest of the day. Use healthy proteins to fuel your muscles. Add slow-digesting carbs to curb cravings throughout the day. And, throw in some fruit for fiber and essential vitamins.

4. Take a cool shower.

Taking cool showers is a practice pioneered by “The Iceman” Wim Hof. It’s been scientifically proven to increase energy, improve stress levels and strengthen your immune system. Start with 90s and build your way up.

5. Practice gratitude.

List some things you’re grateful for right after waking to slow down your busy mind and set the right intention for the day. Feeding your mind thoughts of abundance and gratitude will improve your mood and increase your mental strength. To step this up a notch, combine gratitude with meditation.
