Most people can agree that mornings can be hectic from the moment you open your eyes. With so many things to do, we often find ourselves with not enough time to get it all done. The days can feel overwhelming before they have even started.
But don’t be discouraged; you have the power to transform your day from chaotic to productive through healthy morning habits.
Our Holistic Health Practitioner Program trains students to connect the mind, body, and soul to build a healthy lifestyle. The courses included in this program provide insight on practices that will bring balance to your body. Implementing morning methods such as these helps our students promote overall wellness to their clients.
Here’s how you can start the day with a boost to your energy and mentality:
A morning stretch can do wonders for your mind and body. Stretching improves posture, boosts energy levels, and reduces muscle tension. A couple of minutes of this can ease strained muscles and get the blood flowing to your brain, preparing your day mentally and physically. Get yourself moving right away to enhance your productivity.
Make Your Bed
There’s a reason mom always told you to make your bed! After a long day at work, a messy space is the last thing you should come home to. Don’t end the day as hectic as it began. Start small by making your bed the moment you wake up. As simple as this task sounds, it may bring you the most beneficial outlook on the day ahead of you. Making your bed will de-clutter your resting space and decrease your stress levels.
Incorporating mindfulness into your daily life is something we encourage all of our students to do at Healing Hands. One way to do this is by determining your attitude for the day through setting goals. Daily goals give us the ambition to get our work done and feel good about it. Take some time before you go to bed to think of your goals for the next day. Waking up with those objectives in mind will bring motivation to any aspect of your life.
Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day? Yes! Your body is like a machine- the better you take care of it, the better it will function. Be kind to it by eating healthy, energizing food in the morning. Give yourself a boost by incorporating foods like Greek yogurt and bananas into your morning meal.
Soak up Sunlight
If you are like most of us, you spend a good chunk of your day indoors. Take a moment to go outside and embrace the natural sunlight and fresh air your body craves. That vitamin D can do wonders for you. Try this by choosing to set your phone aside and drink your morning coffee in your backyard instead of your kitchen. Just a couple minutes in nature will ease your worries and bring clarity you need to crush the day.
Creating a holistic lifestyle starts with little steps like these. You will notice a positive transformation once you begin to make mindful decisions about your health and wellness.
