Many people say that you can see by the morning how your day will be, so why not to make you day great by starting your morning with some rituals that will make you feel better. Here are the following ten habits we strongly recommend you to start your day with:
Wake up on time
The worst thing you can do in the morning is to press the snooze button. Once the alarm rings, you should get up immediately, because if you continue to sleep, it will later cause you stress, since you will be in a rush to do all your morning duties. According to some other studies besides stress, anxiety and recklessness are also common for people who practice this habit. Another way in which you can help yourself to wake up immediately, is finding the perfect alarm. Luckily there are many different applications so you can make a perfect choice of your alarm.

Drink a cup of lemon water
We always hear about this “rule” to drink lemon water as soon as we get up. Well, it’s worth trying it because it will cleanse your body from toxins and balance the pH levels. It will also improve digestion, reduce the food cravings and most importantly, it will boost your energy.
Calm Down and Meditate
In order to help yourself to finish your work quickly and easily, you should clear your mind with meditation, which will only take you like five minutes in the morning, but the results will be present the whole day. You just need to sit down in your favorite spot in your home and listen some relaxing music while you are focusing on your breathing.
Due to the fact that during the night we change positions a lot, which can stiffen our body, slow down our lymph system and stall it, we need to do some stretching as soon as we get out of the bed. It will help us to loosen all the muscles in the body and activate the organism. You should make this your habit because it will make you feel less stressed and more relaxed throughout the day. Make sure to stretch all the parts of your body starting from the neck, shoulders, chest back, quads, hamstrings and calves.
Do Your Workouts in the Morning
As we all know, exercise is good in general, but the best time to do some workouts is in the morning, because it will increase your blood flow and will make you feel alert and energized. In order to achieve this, you need to start exercising 15 minutes every morning, and you will notice a huge difference in no time.
Dress like You Mean It.
According to many studies, the clothes your are wearing play a big role in the way how you feel, so, when you wake up, dress whatever feels comfortable and makes you feel confident and do not care what others think of you.
Set Your Internal Clock
All people have internal clock which is in accordance with the place where they live, and that tells them when it’s time to wake up. However, if this clock is not precise, it doesn’t have to mean that you are lethargic. According to Fitness.com on Harvard Medical School the bodies of the individuals who need more sleep than 9 hours create more melatonin than the bodies of those who need less sleep than 9 hours. This is what makes them different. If you are one of them you can consult your doctor and ask him whether supplementing your body with melatonin is a good option.
Eat an Iron-packed Breakfast
The most important meal of the day is breakfast, so make sure not to skip it. Also, try to consume breakfast that contains high amount of iron, because lack of iron will make you feel less energizes.
According to Time.com iron deficiency in the body makes us feel lazy and reduces the oxygen delivery in the body. In order to intake iron, you should consume foods like beans, eggs, green leafy vegetables and peanut butter. It should be mentioned that you need to intake vitamin C as well because it increases the absorption of iron and for this purpose you can drink orange or lemon juice.
Read in Bed
In order to sleep well, try to keep all the technology away from your body before going to sleep. Also, try not to use internet before going to bed, instead, you can read classic book which will make you fall asleep quickly and have a restful night. On the other hand, you can use technology in the morning to read the news and check out your messages.
Don’t Sleep in on Weekends
Try to be active during the weekend, avoid oversleeping Saturday and Sunday. Be creative and do something interesting, instead of spending your free time in bed.
