You may not believe it right now, but morning is the most important part of the day. The way you spend it defines your whole day, which means you need to carefully think of what things you want to do in the morning and what mood you want to create. If you often find yourself in a morning rush without the time to relax with a steamy cup of morning joe or camomile tea, this means you’re doing something wrong. Your whole day becomes rushed like that! Luckily, you can start changing things right now. Here are 10 fit girl’s morning rituals to start your day the best way possible.
Wake up early
It’s a general rule that the earlier you wake up, the better. Try waking up as close to the sunrise as possible as this is when all the nature wakes up, meaning this is the best time to do it. You will feel refreshed and energized to see the whole world come to life before you. You will also have lots of time to relax and start your day at a slow pace.
Wake up at the same time everyday
Waking up at the same time creates a routine that is necessary for your body to function normally. Of course, it would be ideal to wake up without an alarm clock, but if you can’t allow yourself such a relaxed rhythm of life, use the alarm clock, but do it wisely. Wake up with the first ring and try not fall asleep between numerous alarm clocks ringing. It will only drain your morning energy. The more you wake up at the same time, the easier the whole process will become!
Do a few exercises in bed
If you’re one of those people who really can’t get out of the bed at once, try doing a few exercises without getting up. There are a few yoga poses you can do right in bed if it’s too early to get onto the mat for you. Try the Child’s Pose (Balasana) to stretch your things and back, Happy Child’s Asana (Ananda Balasana) to relax spine and improve digestion, and Cat Pose (Marjaryasana) to stretch spine, neck, back, and stimulate the organs in your belly. Finish with a cross-legged asana with a straight spine. Breathe slowly to feel the beginning of a new day.
Drink hot water
Drinking hot water first thing in the morning has all kinds of benefits. It stimulates digestion, flushes out toxins, promotes weight loss, provides the necessary hydration you need in the morning, and has an overall cleansing effect on your body.
