5 *essential* morning habits that make for an amazing day
Let's be real, we can't wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to take on the world every single day. Whether you're a total morning person or absolutely dread getting out of bed, consider including these 5 must-haves in your morning routine. They'll make your day great—trust!
1. 5 minute meditation
Before you begin your daily ritual of scrolling through every social media app possible, allowing yourself time to clear your head and alleviate stress will surely lead to a better, more productive day.
Try to stay away from sugary cereals or skipping the meal altogether. Instead, aim to incorporate some protein (eggs!) and a healthy fat (avos!) to keep you feeling full and energized throughout the day.
3. Set your goals
Whether it’s exchanging smiles with a stranger, getting in a quick workout, calling your grandma after school or eating at home instead of going out for fast food, jot down a few simple things you want to accomplish today.
4. Check your planner
Go over your schedule for the day to ensure that you have everything you need and won’t forget about that meeting with a teacher, lunch plan with a friend or the test you have third period.
5. Drink water
Start hydrating right when you wake up! You can even throw in some citrus, cucumber or chia seeds if you’re tired of sipping on plain old water.
