We human beings are habitual by nature. The question is, are your morning habits supportive of your health, happiness, and growth or are they taking you in the opposite direction?
If you begin your day with self-care, you will have a healthier, happier life. Self-care affects every facet of your life, including physical, emotional, and mental health. You need to have a bit time for yourself each day, starting with your mornings. Your day is pretty much formed by how you spend your first hour.
Building a healthy self-care morning routine doesn't have to cost much or require you to get up in the middle of the night, but it will take some planning.
If you tend to stress out shortly upon waking because there isn’t enough time to get everything done, then a little preparation is all you need.
The following will provide you with a very simple, doable self-care morning routine. With a little experience, you'll soon know without a shadow of a doubt, that you feel so much better when you develop a supportive morning habit.
What Makes for A Rough Morning?
A Simple Self-Care Morning Routine
The very first thing you want to do in the morning is to drink a large glass of water. If you want to supercharge it, squeeze a half lemon in. Drinking water before breakfast will flush your digestive tract and help eliminate toxins and waste your body doesn't need. Also, water will rehydrate you and boost your energy and metabolism before breakfast.
Make sure you have a lamp that gives you enough light to write and read by. I always light my favorite candle and pull a chair near the window so I can see the morning sky opening to new possibilities. But, whether you're still looking at stars or the sunrise, the sense of solitude you'll feel will give you great comfort.
