7 Healthy Habits You Can Do Everyday

July 26, 2015
There is nothing better than getting up and moving right when you wake up, in order to kick off your day with energy. This also improves circulation and boosts the metabolism.

Healthy habits can make the world go round. Waking up each morning with a positive attitude and a smile is something really healthy that can be seen throughout the course of the day.

However, most people don’t normally wake up with the best attitude. They almost always lack energy and wake up feeling tired with a negative attitude.

So, to avoid this and start off your day with the best possible disposition,

7 daily healthy habits you can keep in mind each morning:

Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning

Drinking water is one of the best habits to follow each morning and all throughout the day.  It helps keep you better hydrated, improves the functioning of the digestive system and metabolism, and even improves skin health.

It is recommended to drink a glass of water between meals, preferably with a little bit of lemon juice.

Avoid checking social media, emails, and messages for the first hour 

If you are one of those that is glued to your cell phone and computer through all hours of the day, you should know that these can breed many stressful situations.

Sleeping with devices by your side and waking up to check social media, emails, messages, and other things are not recommended since it can affect you without you even noticing.

Avoid using this for the first hour after you wake, and you will notice that it is a habit that will allow you to feel happier, focused, and with a clearer mindset.

Think positive thoughts

Happy-relationships

Creating a positive mindset for the rest of the day is key to being happy and motivated.

For example, you can think and plan something special in your free time and work to finish it as planned.  

If you can think of 3 or more things it will work great.

Go outside for a bit and breathe

Fill your lungs with fresh air as it will only take up 10 minutes of your time and will make you feel better in the morning.

Go outside to your garden or even by the street, and you will develop a great habit of starting your day.

Move the body and exercise

Daily-exercise

It isn’t necessary to follow a strict exercise routine every morning, but moving your body a little and exercising is a great habit that can help improve circulation, boost the metabolism, and wake up your body for the rest of the day’s activities.

You can walk, run, or ride your bike for a bit.  You can also put on your favorite music and dance however you please.

Keep in mind the music should be positive, happy, and free of negative messages.

Eat a healthy breakfast

Today many people skip breakfast because they feel rushed or believe it isn’t necessary.

However, the truth is that breakfast is far more important than it seems, since it doesn’t just give us energy for the rest of the day, but it also boosts the metabolism and helps you feel better throughout the rest of your daily activities.

To start your day, you simply need to include proteins, antioxidants, and a small number of fats and grains in your breakfast.  

For example, you can eat eggs, fruits, yogurt, oatmeal, whole grain bread, or other similar foods.
