It’s a new year and tomorrow the start of a new week. Each day is a chance to start fresh and put your best foot forward! It’s important to kick start your day with healthy habits that will keep you happy all day long.
Wake up your senses. Open your curtains to let in the glow of the sun. Surround yourself with your favorite colors, fragrances, and flowers. Take a shower with your favorite body wash and shampoo.
Reach for the sky. Stretching your body when you wake up is a wonderful way to loosen up your joints and increase flexibility. Mimic the way a cat wakes up by elongating your spine and stretching out your arms and legs, one at a time. Slowly stand up, inhale as you stretch, and exhale as you contract.
Make a promise to yourself. As soon as you wake up, think of one nice thing you can do for yourself that day.
Break the fast. Fuel yourself with a healthy breakfast that includes fruit, vegetables, and a lean protein.
Move it in the morning. Wake up your metabolism and energize your body. Exercising in the morning demonstrates that you put your health first—helping you feel good about yourself all day.
Have a great week!
