Remember, not everyone likes to wake up early in the morning. Everyone leaves bed after a few brief snoozes however most of them hates the alarm beeps. So think, how negative the day will be when you start with such a negative thought.
Don’t be worried about it. It is a common phenomenon and we all have to fix it at our own. So lets check out few Good morning habit to make our morning GOOD.Here are six ways to start your morning better while kicking bad morning habits that destroy good sleep hygiene.
#1. No Screen Time for 15 Minutes
DON’T USE ANY ELECTRONIC MEDIA DEVICE for 15 minutes after you open your eyes. No emails, no facebook messages, no whatsapp messages, no tweeting, no TV news, nothing..means completely nothing… I know this habit is little difficult but it sets the tone for the day of being enslaved to high end technology. Your morning should be FOR YOU. Go out of the balcony and look into the sky. Look at the wider screen that God has given us.
#2. Getting up correctly – SIT UP
Getting up from bed can be tricky and it has its own benefits. Out of many “bad ways” that you get up every day, there is the best one which you can adopt from today.
Roll over onto your right side, and then slowly push your body up into a sitting position. Then wait for a minute before getting off the bed and walking. No Jerking Please, your body isn’t prepared for any jerk after relaxing for hours during sleep.
#3. Stretch – It doesn’t cost you anything
Stretching is a great thing that you can do even in bed. (However I would recommend getting off the bed and then do it.) A simple stretched-out-legs-and-arms-overhead movement can help you achieve the benefits of stretching. After a long inactivity during sleep, your body has just been booted down for hours–you can’t expect it to be warmed up, energized, and raring to go right away. Stretching helps you in getting ready for the day.
#4. Meditate – The most powerful technique in the world
Now it has been acclaimed by the international authorities, that meditation is as necessary as you take your food every day. Don’t skip it as it has not been a compulsion for you. If you skip it now, some day the doctors will advise you and then you’ll not be in position to skip a day even. So start today, and meditate for some time every day.
#5. Lemon water Instead of Coffee
You cannot imagine the benefit of Lemon water.Lukewarm water with a fresh lemon squeezed into it has numerous benefits. ONLY IF YOU DRINK IT AS FIRST THING IN MORNING. It pumps up your metabolism that burns your fat and sustain your muscles, help you with your mouth and throat, and fuels your with hell lot of energy.
And it’s a great way to minimize your coffee intake.
#6. Setting up goals for the day
Trust me; this is going to make you HERO in personal and professional life. Maintaining work-life balance can be amazing through this.
Every morning, before jumping to any of the tasks, be it a house hold activity or anything, take out a paper and pen to jot down the “three goals” that you want to achieve today, tasks that can help you achieve those goals, and their priorities. This might include having healthy breakfast, committing to a dance class in evening or setting up the garden to plant some herbs. Wait… or it can be professional goals for office as well.
It’s not so boring. A “successful” meditation in an entire lifetime might be only a few seconds. However, sitting in a comfortable position and focusing on clearing your mind–even if it’s for less than a minute–can help your mental clarity and spiritual well-being and set the stage for the day.
