With the new year upon us, everyone is scrambling to decide what resolutions they will be implementing in January. New exercise routines, healthier meals, and more time spent with family and friends usually top the list. Sometimes, though, these big resolutions can lead to stress over how to maintain them and succeed in your goals. We’re here to help you by providing small changes you can add into your morning routine to kick start your day in a positive direction!
Switch your morning coffee for tea. Tea is good for your cholesterol, mental health, productivity and blood pressure – all things that lead to a fulfilling day!
Set your alarm for 30 minutes earlier than usual. Use that 30 minutes to focus on your physical or mental health. Pull up a meditation video on YouTube, read a chapter of your favorite book, or step outside for a brisk walk.
Organize your workspace. On weekdays, mornings can seem particularly stressful with the rushing around. Whether you’re working from home or from the office, take a few minutes at the start of each day to organize your workspace and give yourself the mental and physical space to take on the workday!
Savor a healthy breakfast to start the day. Healthy breakfasts come in all forms – fruit, nonfat yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, veggie egg white omelets and more. Plan a breakfast you can look forward to that will help jumpstart your day.
