Healthy Morning Habits To Try Tomorrow

African American couple eating cerealYour morning routine can make or break your entire week. People who start the day making healthy choices tend to stay on a healthy streak for the rest of the day. Not to mention, a great morning routine can lead to more energy and help you avoid that afternoon spell of fatigue. You can try these habits tomorrow morning to reap the benefits. We promise you won’t have to wake up one second earlier to add these to your day.

Rise and Drink

First things first, you should get hydrated as soon as you wake up. You can keep a glass of water next to your bed and drink it all once you’re up. Water rehydrates you after hours (hopefully at least 7-8 hours) without liquid and it helps to start up your metabolism and bodily functions. You’ll also get a head start on drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day by starting first thing in the morning.

Move for 5

Once you’re hydrated, you should get moving for at least 5 minutes. You can start off light with a few stretches, or short round of yoga. Or you can try something more challenging like a 5 minute abs or legs workout. While 5 minutes isn’t a lot, once you hit 5 minutes, you’ll most likely want to do even more. But even if you only get 5 minutes in, that’s 35 minutes of extra exercise every week!
