1. Wake Up Early
If you are one of the many people who drag themselves late to bed each night and wake up late every morning feeling constantly tired and cranky, it’s time to rethink your daily routine. How you wake up determines the energy with which you approach the rest of your day. Also, an energizing breakfast, including a snack such as a high-protein nutrition bar, can make a big difference in your day.
You want to wake up feeling fresh, invigorated and ready to start, positively and enthusiastically. Get to sleep by 10:00 pm every night so you can wake up refreshed every morning. And most importantly, stick to it until it becomes a habit.
2. Tune In and Zone Out
Once you’ve woken up, it’s tempting to grab your mobile or switch on your T.V. and update yourself on the latest news, trends, and messages. Fight the urge to do this. The early morning part of the day is your quiet time, where you set the tone for how you want the rest of the day to go. Use this part of the day to meditate, reflect or engage in practices which help you slow down, focus and tune into yourself with no outside distractions.
This time of internal reflection is most ideal to setting your personal positive intention for the day. Construct an image of your intention as vividly as you can in your mind’s eye and focus on it. Embrace the positive feelings that arise as you see this image and remind yourself to carry this feeling with you into the rest of the day.
3. Make Your Bed and Eat Breakfast
After you’ve woken up and created a positive vibration for yourself, its’ time to take care of some practical necessities. Make your bed and self-nourish with a healthy breakfast.
PureFit Nutrition Bars offer several delicious flavors such as Berry Almond Crunch and Otameal Cinnamon and are a great part of a nutritious breakfast.
These acts of caring for your surroundings as well as caring for yourself are deeply grounding and pacifying. Aside from that, you also will feel more productive and have a sense of accomplishment upon completing these small but essential tasks of self-care.
Your breakfast should ideally be a combination of carbohydrates, proteins, and fresh fruits or vegetables. This combination has been proven to help you stay fuller for longer and keep you sustained adequately until your next meal. Resist the urge to eat unhealthy fried or fatty foods or last night’s leftovers. Your breakfast should be fresh, healthy, nourishing and nutritious.
4. Create Your To Do List
Successful people wake up early and use the morning time for reflection and goal setting. Use this time to think about what you want to achieve for the rest of the day. Create your to-do checklist and organize your time with respect to your tasks. As you go about ticking off your tasks throughout the day, you will be amazed at how much you have been able to accomplish.
Follow these 4-morning rituals for about 21 days, which is the minimum amount of time required to set new habits, and you will start to see profoundly positive changes in the way you approach your world.
And remember to grab some delicious PureFit Nutrition Bars to enjoy as a healthy part of your breakfast or snack.
