“When you wake up in the morning, think of what a cherished privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” – Marcus Aurelius.
How you start your morning has a tremendous impact on the rest of your day. One of the most efficient ways of changing our belief patterns is through practicing and maintaining everyday rituals.
Positive attitudes create great days, and the best time to generate positivity is in the morning. In those precious early hours, we establish our mindset for the entire day, so treating this critical period with attention and respect is essential.
Take out some time for a mindful morning by trying some of these simple rituals, which can be performed as little as in five minutes. By implementing them into your daily lifestyle can create a clear head and an open mind, ensuring a day full of positive energy and enthusiasm.
Put Off Checking Your Phone.
Stop checking your cellphone every morning, and reserve these morning hours for yourself as when you wake up you’re in a comparatively relaxed state. Wouldn’t it be better to use these hours to calm your mind, instead of worrying about the office meetings or calls?
It is important to hydrate yourself when you wake up, start your mornings with a glass of lemon water or honey. It will help you increase metabolism, make your skin healthier, reduce stress, bring more energy, and flush out toxins from your body.
Prepare Gratitude List
Gratitude leads to joy. Explore your thoughts and take out the time to write down at least three things you are grateful for. Say “Thankyou” for all the things you are thankful for. Do it every morning and see what changes it brings to your life.
Make a habit of starting meditating daily for at least 10 mins. It will help your mind and body warm-up for the day. You can also try some yoga asanas. It will increase your blood circulation and makes you feel best in the morning.
Eat Hearty Breakfast
Many people skip breakfast; this is the most unhealthy thing that you can do to yourself. Try to take a light breakfast or some nuts if you are not hungry. It will help you increase your metabolism, give you the energy to take out your routine tasks, and keep you focused.
I hope these healthy morning rituals to start your day makes you look forward to waking up in the morning!
