Ideas for a healthy morning routine

What is a routine defined as?

A routine is a sequence of actions that you do repeatedly.

What is a ritual?

a set of fixed actions and sometimes words performed regularly especially as a part of a ceremony.

So suffice to say that a routine is a kind of ritual.

I have heard it many times that healthy morning routines will set you up for a great productive day. I guess that everyone wants to have a healthy routine they can stick to every morning, but it is not always easy because of the different lifestyles out there.

Most of us have busy mornings that are filled with getting the kids ready, getting breakfast ready and rushing off to work. Starting the day the wrong way will definitely affect the rest of your day, that’s why practising a healthy routine will help you start the day on a much more positive note.

Here is a list of some healthy morning routines you can try

Plan your day the night before

Planning your day the night before will take a lot of stress off morning routines. Get your clothes ready and get your bag ready with all necessities.

Set your alarm

There is nothing as frustrating as waking up just to find out that you only have a few minutes to do 101 things! So set your alarm, and give yourself time to wake up slowly and peacefully.

Wake up early

The early bird gets the worm so to speak. Those that love to wake up early make the most of the day and have more time to reflect and plan the day ahead.

Pray

Your spirit, body and mind need to be in alignment, so take time to pray and thank God for the day ahead

Make your bed

Making your bed gives a signal that a new day has begun and its time to move on. Don’t jump back into bed.

Brush your teeth

Get that stale breath off and begin your day on a fresh not.

Take a shower

Amazing what water can do. Taking a shower will soothe you and the water gives a cleansing touch to your body and refreshens you.

Drink your coffee or tea

Have a nice warm cup.

Eat a healthy breakfast

Make sure that you eat breakfast. Take your time as you feed your body, this will help you think clearly.

Talk a walk

Walking opens up nature. Look around you as you walk and take it all in.

Nature is beautiful.

Remember that every one has their own unique routine that works for them so this is just a general outline.
