How you wake up and how you sleep the night before is a big factor on how your day will begin. These three things are what are proven by science to help boost your mood, energy, and chemicals in your brain to help start your day in the right direction. As well as what I have been doing to help start my day, and relieve the stress from the night before.
Start by stretching. It’s always good to stretch, it helps with blood circulation and it relieves any tension from the night before. Do a bit of stretching or yoga before you start your breakfast. Stretch your back, legs, or arms. Start on a quick morning yoga to help release your stress and control your breathing. Not only is it meditating for your brain but also prepares your body and help freshen you up for the upcoming day.
Freshen it up. Take a relaxing shower and wash away anything from the night before or just stand under the water to help release any stress. Wash your face with water or your daily beauty routine to help freshen up your face and erase any sleep away. Drink a glass of water to rehydrate yourself.
Know your day, plan it. Plan ahead so you don’t stress over it throughout the day. Defrost the chicken for dinner tonight, prepare your fruits and veggies for the next day. Know where you’re going and what you’re supposed to do throughout the day, if it helps write it down and list it. Not only will this help you visualise what you need to do but also helps visualise the path you need to take to get there.
