What does your current morning routine look like?
If you're like most people, you snooze your alarm clock a few times, scroll social media, and roll out of bed a half-hour after your alarm. Maybe you get a shower,
brush your teeth
, and grab your coffee before you rush out the door.
Do you feel good about your routine, or do you think it could be better?
A healthy morning routine isn't automatic. You have to develop it and keep at it until it becomes a habit. You'll feel better for all of the effort though.
If you want a healthier lifestyle and more peaceful mornings, read on for five healthy morning habits.
1. No More Snoozing
This can be a tough one to give up, but you'll thank yourself later.
It's so tempting to get a few extra minutes of sleep in the morning, but that time is wasted when you end up in a rush to get to school, work, or your other responsibilities.
There are a few ways to make the waking process easier. You can try a
sunrise style alarm clock
that will slowly light up the room. You can also try setting your alarm clock far away from you so that you have to get up to turn it off.
Bonus points if your phone is your alarm: no more mindless scrolling in bed!
