Start Your Day Right With 5 Simple Steps!

Mornings are usually draggy if you aren’t a morning person. So, here are 5 things you should do at the start of your day to get you through!

Don’t snooze! Don’t even think about it!

In order to start your day right at the beginning, it’s how you should wake up. According to one of the Huffington post, snoozing causes your brain to be confused, which makes your body feel more tired than it should be.

Perhaps from tonight onward, place your alarm clock or phones away from you, with a good distance that forces you to get up and out of bed to reach for it.

Let the sun shine into the room

Open the blinds or curtains as soon as you wake up. Let the morning sun shine through your room or living room. Even if the sun is not out yet during the time you arise, that’s okay! It’s the motion (see next tip!) that tells you, “IT’S RISE AND SHINE!”

Stretch it out!

Start your day right with stretching! If time permits get some simple yoga poses going – real easy! For certified yoga instructor, Brett Larkin, 15 minutes yoga every morning helps keep her awake and energized the whole day without needing any caffeine.

Yoga stretches have plenty of health benefits, including detoxing your body.
