A good morning routine can jumpstart your day filled with motivation and energy to last for the whole day. In fact, by practicing a healthy morning routine, you can potentially decrease stress, boost your happiness, and increase your productivity more. Here is how to jumpstart your day with an optimized morning routine.
Get up at Your Own Time
Though it’s good to wake up early in the morning, waking up “early” is different for everyone. According to a study by the American Psychological Association, participants who self-identified as “morning persons” reported feeling “happier and healthier than night owls”. However, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have the perfect morning just because you don’t get up as early as everyone else.
With that said, sleep is crucial, aim for at least eight hours of sleep every night. Instead of adjusting your alarm to wake up early, you should adjust your bedtime to turn in earlier.
Have a Glass of Water
Staying hydrated is vital. This might be a widely known fact, but we often overlook it. In fact, dehydration can lead to increased cravings, headaches, and fatigue. We generally wake up thirsty because we lose water through our breath and sweat while we sleep. According to studies, drinking water first thing in the morning not only helps you rehydrate but can also jump-start your metabolism and digestion system, increasing it by up to 30%.
Stay Away from Your Phone
Putting down your phone (tablet or computer) may appear to be a simple task, but being connected 24 hours a day, seven days a week can have serious consequences for our health.
This constant digital connection can raise perceived stress, and persistent exposure to blue light has been found to inhibit the body’s natural melatonin synthesis, which is essential for the body’s normal circadian rhythm and sleep patterns. That’s why you should exclude using your smartphone from your early morning routine.
Go for a Morning Walk
The reason why we instinctively stretch upon waking up is that our body craves movement after a whole night of inactivity. Walking is one of the best morning routine activities you can do. While some might argue that walking doesn’t burn as many calories as other forms of exercise. Scientists have shown that walking doesn’t only burn calories, but also improves circulation, enhances your mood, strengthens your muscles, supports your joints, etc.
To improve the effectiveness, even more, you can also add supplements such as DHH-B, Epicatechin, BPC-157 to your healthy morning routine.
- DHH-B has been studied for its ability to enhance mood and alleviate stress and anxiety. When utilizing this supplement, you should avoid drinking alcohol.
- Epicatechin has been shown to improve skeletal muscle development by suppressing myostatin and increasing follistatin. As a result, it helps you build up more strength which helps you walk even further.
- BPC-157 can help accelerate the recovery time of your wound and injuries during exercise.
Get Some Fresh Air
One of the simplest methods to boost your general health is to get some fresh air on a daily basis. Sunlight allows the body to generate vitamin D, which has been demonstrated to have several important roles in the body. Vitamin D deficiency has been related to weariness, a weaker immune system, bone and back pain, as well as poor mood and despair. All of which can be avoided just with 15 to 20 minutes in the sun.
