A morning routine is one of the best ways in which to greet our day. It allows us to make the most of the time we have before attending to our responsibilities of the day, while also permitting us time to ‘come to’ after sleeping for a while.
The best routines can be followed with your eyes closed, but sustain you by ensuring you care for your daily necessities with care and attention. Over time, the cumulative effect of this self-care will be worthwhile, no matter if you opt for hair growth measures and products, have an elaborate skincare regime, or enjoy a long soak in a hot shower before you even think about doing anything else.
Of course, certain additions, or ‘trimmings’ as they may be called, such as what kind of coffee you enjoy, if you take the dog for a walk in the morning or evening, and all of those considerations can be defined by you given your daily schedule and the time you have to apply here.
With the following advice, you’ll also see how a bedrock morning routine can benefit you in the best way:
Waking Up Your Mind
For some, waking up in the morning is the hardest thing to do, because who doesn’t want to spend hours lounging around in their nice, warm bedspread and healthy mattress? We can also feel a little lethargic if we’ve been working hard or haven’t had much sleep due to external causes. It’s good, then, to find a way to wake up your mind and body in the morning. For some, a cup of freshly ground coffee is key, for others, a shower turned to a cold temperature in the last thirty seconds of washing is amazing. When you approximate an effort like this, in the long run you feel better and more actualized – and waking up becomes more comfortable.
Caring For Your Health
It’s important to care for your health, especially as you wake up. A good exfoliating and skincare regimen can help your skin glow, as well as prepare it for your morning makeup routine or to simply protect it against the cold weather of the day. This way, you can also remove dead skin and make sure any difficulties, like blemishes, are attended to carefully.
Protecting You For The Day
It’s good to feel protected for the day, be that up and be prepared to face no matter what comes at us. A good morning stretch or meditation session can work wonders for this. To start with, you’ll be able to feel more actualized in your body after stretching and attending to some light workout movements (such as press ups or isometric exercises), and meditation can help you get out of your head and clear your mind before you go and deal with traffic or log on for your remote working session.
With a combination of these efforts, you’ll clear your mind, body and spirit, and be as nurtured as possible to get out there into the world for the better. If you don’t discount the long-term benefits of this, you’re sure to feel as actualized as possible.
