My morning routine changes pretty often, but I have 3 things that I try to do within the first 1-2 hours of waking up. I know, I need to buckle down and get a stronger routine, but I’m working on it!
Drink a bottle of water.
I like to start my day off with a bottle of water, some mornings it’s easier to do than others. Sometimes I have to add flavoring to it, but it’s helping me stay hydrated and makes me feel like I have enough energy to complete my day!
Drink a cup of hot green tea.
I haven’t always liked green tea, or tea for that matter, but I’m learning to love it. Sometimes I add a little honey to it, a little lemon, or a little (sugar free) sweetener. Today I decided to add a mint to it, what a great touch that was! I’ve heard, but don’t quote me, that drinking green tea in the morning helps to boost your metabolism and helps keep you full. I don’t know how much truth there is behind that, but it sure has helped to decrease my appetite. Then again, I’m sure drinking 3-4 cups of tea a day will keep your belly full. LOL
I’ve been really bad about this lately, not doing my full yoga workout, but I try to do at least 5 minutes, usually more. This morning, I did 20 minutes of Yoga With Adriene and I feel so amazing! If you have never tried yoga, or never seen her videos, I highly recommend checking her out! She’s so calm, easygoing and you can be at virtually any skill level and still do her yoga videos! She has so many to choose from!
How do you all like to start off your day? What are your “must do” things to get you moving and motivated? Tell me in the comments!
