Building a strong morning routine can boost your happiness and reduce your stress greatly. From waking up at 5 o’clock in the morning to cold showers and lemon water, we’re not saying that these techniques are easy! However, some of them will do down a treat and make you feel like you’re staying in the penthouse suite. Find the tips that work for you, and see what builds your daily joy, productivity and wellness.
According to verywellmind, a morning routine helps you set the tone for day, better allowing you to control your schedule. As you’re able to start the day anew, a morning routine helps you start each day focusing on what’s in front of you, and how best to prioritise your time. Ultimately the goal is to boost your productivity as well as your mental health.
Invest in some quality bedding to wake up to
We’re kicking this off with an admittedly potentially costly suggestion, but we promise it’s worth it. Invest in some pure linen sheets in Australia, and you’ll feel like you’re waking up in hotel sheets. A great way to start the day, no doubt. With time, this will feel like a worthy investment as your sheets grow softer and softer with every wash and the right linen care.
Wake up early
Wake up at five or six o’clock in the morning, and you will feel like you have so much more time in the day. While it might be difficult to beat that dreaded alarm, you can judge for yourself whether the early start is worth it. But you won’t know if you don’t try!
Start your day with a cold shower
Just like a strong cup of coffee, a cold shower is a great way to start your day with a punch. It has benefits for your immune system, also tightening your pores and giving you a burst of energy to tackle your work day with. Pair it with an energetic workout, and a cold shower will also reduce your core temperature.
Find movement medicine that works for you
Exercise in some way, shape or form is important. Exercise doesn’t have to be pain and pushing; it can be fun, and just get you moving. Physical health benefits aside, exercise can do much to improve your day to day mental health.
Put lemon in your water
Not only is drinking water important – adding a dash of lemon juice or a slice of lemon to your water will give you some vitamin C and give you energy for the day. You can also try adding other fruits to your water such as raspberries and strawberries, if you have trouble drinking enough water – it is important for so many elements of your health.
[Conclusion]: We hope these tips have been helpful, and given you some fresh ideas for your morning routine. Ultimately, the most important thing to remember is this: you will always have time in the day for whatever it is that you need to do. Just always remain open to new things, and take time for yourself regardless of what that looks like for you.
