If you’re someone who wakes up, throws on clothes, and leaves for work or school, you might want to consider starting your day differently. The way your morning starts really sets the tone for how the rest of your day will go. Plus, there are some things that are just better done in the morning. If you want to amp up your morning routine, try some of these additional habits.
If you don’t change anything else you do in the morning, at least add this one habit. Hydrating your body first thing in the morning is so important, because as you sleep, your body becomes dehydrated. By drinking just one glass of water when you first get up, your body will start to work faster, and you will probably even feel more awake.
Whether it’s just a few push ups, 5 minutes of stretching, or a short walk, doing exercise in the morning is another thing that will wake you up and get your day started right. Don’t feel like you need to do a big workout, something is better than nothing.
Make Your Bed
This trick is really good if you love feeling productive and efficient. By taking a couple of minutes to make your bed, you can really feel like you have started the day, and when you get home, your room will look a lot tidier.
