Morning Routine for a Happy Mind & Body!

Each and every morning probably looks a little different for you. And for this morning routine, I don't want to add another 30 minute, 10 step routine to start your day off right. I just want to share with you 3 things you can do to start your morning off right and respect and love the body you're in! 

  1. Take three deep breaths and stretch! This can be just a simple big, full stretch while you still lay in bed! Wake up your body and mind as you flood it with fresh oxygen and feel invigorated from the stretch! Even sitting up in bed and doing a couple more is easy too! 
  2. Think of three things you are thankful for! You can do this while you're still in bed as well! Don't grab your phone or head to the bathroom, create space to connect with your body, and your mind. Realizing how lucky you are to wake up to a new day. That no matter the stress that might come, you still have things to be thankful for. This continued, practiced positive outlook teaches our brain over time to look for the positive throughout the day as well! 
  3. Have a big glass of water! Your body has been dehydrated throughout the night and the best thing you can do is fill it back up with fresh water! I like to keep a glass by my bed so that it's one of the first things I can grab before I pop out of bed. When you are dehydrated your brain feels fuzzier so this is the perfect pre-caffeine option to start clearing your mind and making it more alert. 

And that's it! So simple and you haven't even left the bed yet! This should take about 3-5 minutes but it can compleletly change your tone for the day. Choose to wake up and take those few minutes for yourself. Feel greatful, connect with your body and nuture it from the start and those actions will contnue to honor you the rest of the day! 

Have an amazing day xx
