Want to have more energy throughout your day and feel great? Here are 9 simple rituals that you can do before 9 am to boost your metabolism and keep you energized all day long!
1. Wake up earlier
You’re going to need some extra time in order to fit a fantastic morning in! Wake up at least an hour and a half before you need to head out the door. The difference between enduring your morning and enjoying your morning starts here.
2. You snooze you lose
Research says that hitting snooze prolongs feeling groggy because it re-starts your sleep cycle. Instead of hitting the snooze button, turn off the alarm and sit up in bed. Breathe, feel your heartbeat, and say yes to the day!
3. Drink warm water with lemon
In addition to boosting immunity, clearing skin and balancing your pH, warm lemon water helps stimulate your digestive system in the best possible way. When you wake up in the morning, your body has gone 6-8 hours without water. This will speed up your metabolism throughout the entire day.
4. Have two eggs, any style
Don’t skip breakfast. Starting your day with a protein-rich breakfast boosts metabolism and helps you stay fuller longer. Cook your eggs in coconut oil to keep them healthy, scramble them with fresh chopped veggies, make an omelet, or take them over-easy. Endless possibilities, so keep it fresh!
5. Drink your greens
No matter if you are good at getting whole foods into your diet or not, we all need extra nutrients from a vegetable supplement to keep our bodies healthy. But some of us.. okay, MOST of us don't have time to juice with our hectic morning routines. The solution is Nanogreens! Nanogreens superfood is the easiest and quickest way to get your daily dose of vegetables & fruits. This green powder supplement is truly a powerhouse of nutrition and wellness, made easy.
6. Pack a healthy snack for later
Remember, when we get hangry we reach for the nearest snack.. so make sure the nearest snack is a healthy option and keep it close - in your bag, at your desk, in your car...wherever you can reach it! Try fruit, nuts, veggies, or a combination of all three. When you choose healthy options, you are free to eat as much as you want so stock up!
7. Fill your water bottle
Staying hydrated is key if you want to keep your metabolism humming along. Take your weight and divide it by two. Drink that amount of water in ounces each day. Simple right? Drink up!
Give yourself 10 minutes before leaving the house to regroup and set an intention for your day. Sit quietly. Be still. As your mind races, focus in on your thoughts. Your thoughts become your intentions and your intentions become your actions. At the end of the day, what would you like to have accomplished? Begin with the end in mind.
Look at yourself in the mirror and smile. You’ve got this, and today is going to be a good day!
