If you checked out my last post on weight loss goals you will know come January I’m going to implement some changes into my diet and exercise regime. There are so many simple ways to introduce new routines into your day that have a proven record of making you feel better from the outside in. Today i’m talking all about my 4 Great Ways To Start The Day.
4 Great Way To Start The Day
Our well being is so important for us as individuals. It paves the way to how we approach our daily living. I know for one if I get up drink copious amount of coffee, lie around and hang around on my phone I’m not going to feel good about myself in any way. I will feel sluggish and not in the mood to do anything. So if i start my day of the right way, my approach to everyday tasks be it at home with the children or working will have a much better approach if I’m in a positive mindset and ready to grab the day with both hands.
Drink A Glass Of Water Upon Wakening
The best way to start the day is to drink a glass of water. Water increases your metabolism and well as hydrating you. It also has the added benefit of flushing out toxins and relieving those hunger pangs which may make us grab more snacks.
Don’t Reach For Your Phone
I have found this really helps me mood wise in the mornings. the worst thing for me is reaching for my phone to see whats happened overnight. Its much better to get in with a positive mindset and prep for the day ahead without distractions.
Light Daily Exercise
This is one addition to your routine that helps you mentally and physically. Light exercise can even be going for a short walk. Going up and down the stair multiple times. Joining in a with a group exercise class or even a session in the gym. All of these make us feel better and improve our qualities of life.
Focus On The Day Ahead
Keeping your focus is so important to get tasks completed. As I work from home I need to plan, make lists and stay focused and stick to the task at hand. If you can think of ways to keep you on task and focused use them. Be it writing lists, allowing yourself a minimum time at each task, limited distraction and even turning your mobile off. These are all positive steps to keep us on track.
I hope this has been helpful for some. I for one am really going to make a conscious effort to apply all of these into my daily routine.
