4 Things To Do Tomorrow Morning For A More Productive Day
No matter how you look at it, sometimes waking up in the morning is just a difficult thing to do. When your alarm goes off in the morning to get you up and ready for a long day at work, it may feel like you need to summon a boatload of strength to get out from underneath the warm and cozy covers. Fortunately, there are some habits you can start adding into your morning routine right now that will make getting up and on with you day a much smoother process than it normally is.
Start adding these healthy habits and patterns into your routine tomorrow morning for a boost in health, productivity, and overall greater wellness, so you can start your days off on the right foot.
Disable The Snooze Alarm
It’s so tempting to take comfort in knowing that, should you feel too exhausted to get up and out of bed after the first time your alarm goes off, you know that you can simply hit the snooze button one or two, or even more times to ease your way into wakefulness. As it turns out, the snooze button is actually probably causing you more harm than good, since each time you wake up from your snooze button, your sleep cycle is being interrupted. Especially if you fall into a deep sleep in between your snooze going off, you will be groggier and have a harder time focusing and being productive in the morning, and maybe even throughout the entire day. Do what you can to wake up at the onset of your alarm going off.
Practice Deep Breathing
Rise up and wake your body up by taking five deep breaths very slowly. This will allow you to ground your body while clearing your mind, so you can get your circulation going while having the energy to start your day off on the right foot.
Drink A Glass Of Water
The night before you fall asleep, fill up a glass of water and keep it right on your nightstand, or as close to your bed as possible. Make it a habit that the first thing you do every morning, maybe besides your deep breathing exercises, is drink that entire glass of water. Starting your morning off hydrated will wake you up, prevent you from overeating, and gently encourage your body to absorb more nutrients throughout the rest of the day.
Stretching, especially specific stretches assigned to you by a chiropractor, can help to keep the joints and spine in good health. When the body is functioning at its best, you are better able to be productive and to ward off any unwanted bacteria. Regular visits to your chiropractor can ensure that you are performing these stretches correctly, and that you are on the right road to optimal health.
