Give your body a once over
Beginning your day with a glass of water helps to kickstart your system.
It’s important to hydrate throughout the day, but our morning eight ounces will get the process going. Many people choose to leave a glass of water on their bedside table to remind themselves to drink upon waking. Doing a skincare routine, dry brushing your skin, tongue scraping, or even gently moving our bodies can also generate some energy and flip the switch between our sleeping and waking modes.
Give yourself a plan
While having a nutritious breakfast (which can still be easy), think about the essential tasks that need to be accomplished. Plan your work for the day, but don’t forget to schedule in other important areas of your life, as well. Plan your movement, meals, any appointments or errands, and go one step further to plan to connect with someone.
Relationships are an important part of our physical, emotional, and mental health, and without intentionally making room for this, we can easily push that to the back burner. Time blocking can be a helpful method for making sure that those non-negotiables are really non-negotiable.
