The Importance of a Healthy Morning Routine
I truly believe that how we start our morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. It’s like the law of attraction positive energy attracts. This concept is beautifully explained in “The Secret” book. So, if we begin our day on a positive and healthy note, it will attract more good vibes and positivity throughout our day. It’s all about setting the right intention and energy for the day ahead.
Today, I thought of sharing my morning routine with you all, which I believe is the key to a healthy and happy day ahead 🙂
Chemical-Free Shower and DIY Facial Serum
My day starts with a refreshing shower, which is an absolute must for me to feel energized and ready to take on the day. To keep it natural and chemical-free, I use a soap made with natural ingredients, free from parabens and mineral oils. I always go for plant-based products, as they are not only good for our skin but also for the environment. This is my little way of starting my day positively and healthily.
Once my face is all clean and fresh, I move on to applying my very own DIY facial serum. I make this serum using extra virgin cold-pressed coconut oil and vitamin E (d alpha-tocopherol). This all-natural serum has worked wonders for me in terms of improving my skin’s appearance.
To make it, I mix a pea-sized amount of coconut oil with a single drop of vitamin E and gently apply it to my clean face as a natural serum before putting on any moisturizer or makeup. Trust me, this serum has been a game changer for me, and I recommend it to anyone looking for an easy and effective skincare routine.
Nutritious Breakfast Choices for a Healthy Start
When it’s time for breakfast, I always make sure to choose something healthy and nutritious to fuel my day. Here are my ultimate morning choices, presented as bullet points:
Yoghurt with fruits, chia seeds, and almonds. This is a light yet filling option that provides a good balance of protein and carbs.
Porridge made with oatmeal and topped with fruits, chia seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and goji berries. This is a great choice for those who want a warm and hearty breakfast that keeps them full for hours.
Toast with homemade pesto or avocado with eggs on top. This is a protein-packed option that’s perfect for those who need some extra fuel in the morning.
Toast with bean pate, dried tomatoes, and rosemary dried leaves. This is a unique and flavorful option for those who want to try something new and exciting for breakfast.
Six Steps to Kickstart Your Day with Health
A step-by-step guide to help you kickstart your day with healthy:
Step 1: Wake Up Early
Try waking up at least 30 minutes earlier than your usual time. This extra time in the morning will help you establish a healthy routine and allow you to complete a few healthy habits before starting your day.
Step 2: Drink Lemon Water
Drinking a glass of warm lemon water is a great way to hydrate your body and boost your metabolism. Squeeze half a lemon into a glass of warm water, add a pinch of salt, and drink it on an empty stomach.
Step 3: Stretch or Exercise
Take a few minutes to stretch your body, do some light yoga or perform a quick exercise routine. This will help to get your blood flowing and energize your body for the day ahead.
Step 4: Have a Nutritious Breakfast
Eating a healthy breakfast is essential for starting your day off on the right foot. Make sure to include protein, fibre, and healthy fats in your meal. Some great options include oatmeal with nuts and fruits, scrambled eggs with avocado, or a smoothie bowl with spinach and berries.
Step 5: Meditate or Practice Mindfulness
Take a few minutes to sit quietly and focus on your breath. This will help to calm your mind and reduce stress. Alternatively, you can practice mindfulness by doing a simple task, such as washing dishes or making your bed, with full attention and awareness.
Step 6: Plan Your Day
Take a few minutes to plan out your day. This will help you to stay organized and focused throughout the day. Write down your to-do list and set goals for the day.
By following these six steps, you can create a healthy start to your day that will leave you feeling energized, focused and ready to take on anything that comes your way!
In conclusion, starting the day with healthy choices can make a significant impact on how you feel throughout the day.
