New year, new decade! With new cycles beginning, nothing more natural than seeking to create healthier habits that allow more energy, concentration and focus. So check out 10 morning rituals to adopt in 2020!
Meditation has been shown to reduce stress, improve concentration and generate a general sense of well-being. Consider setting the alarm for 10 or 15 minutes and meditating. For those who don't know how to get started, it's worth betting on apps like Insight Timer.
Eat a good breakfast
Have you heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Studies by Cardiff University found that eating properly in the morning is directly related to good academic performance.
Allow yourself some time for yourself
Well-being is also linked to your sexual well-being, so allow yourself time to know yourself.
Try a green smoothie
Did you know that only 1 in 10 adults meets the daily intake of fruits and vegetables? So a good way out would be to add a green smoothie to your routine by adding the vegetables you usually use and spinach, kale and chard every other day.
Add a vitamin B12
Present in meat, dairy products, eggs and other animal foods, vitamin B12 is essential for the human body. So if you are heading towards veganism (or vegetarianism) you may be deficient in this vitamin. A good way to go see a doctor and test to see if you can add this vitamin in capsules, as lack of vitamin A can lead to anemia, weakness and fatigue.
Who never promised to stretch further and couldn't? This practice improves posture, circulation and can relieve morning stress. So allow yourself some time for this.
Even if you're not a big fan of exercise, allow yourself to be busy. Jumping around or walking around the block is enough to improve decision making throughout the day.
Detach from the phone
It may seem crazy to think about it, after all, the alarm itself is already on the phone and turning on the wifi seems so easy, considering that the device is already in the hands. But avoiding cell phone use for at least 30 minutes is a good way to start the day.
After 8 hours without drinking, your body will probably be dehydrated. Therefore, drinking at least one glass of water within 30 minutes of waking up is essential to initiate daily hydration.
Repeat yourself self help messages
Are you looking to improve your problem solving skills? Repeating words of self-acceptance is a good way to do this, according to studies.
