I like to jump on my foam roller first thing in the morning. This gets the blood flow going and places me in a dynamic place! Once I’m done with the foam roller I’ll do some light exercises with resistance bands.
Waking Up Before 6 AM
Yes, or at least exactly 6 AM every morning. After that, just stay awake, just sit and reflect about yourself and what you want/need to do today and you’ll be able to execute them smoothly.
Meditation and/or Yoga
Meditation and/or Yoga is a great way calm yourself and it’s perfect to do early in the morning where there only a few distractions around you. Also, the calm atmosphere of early morning will help you calm down.
Upon waking up, be grateful and have a peace of mind. If you start your day with a moody feeling, you’ll feel sluggish throughout the day and you’ll be having a hard time doing tasks, socializing and even enjoying.
Waking Up Earlier – How to Do it?
If you’re having difficulty waking up early, then all you need to do is to adjust your sleeping routines as well as some of your habits. The first thing that you can do is, of course, sleep earlier, but how can you do that? There are several simple ways to achieve it.
The first one is to make sure that you cut off any electronics away from you at least 2 hours before you sleep. That means if you want to sleep at 10:00 PM, make sure that at 8 PM, all of your electronic devices such as your PC, laptop, TV or iPhone are turned off or in sleep mode.
If you’re a coffee, tea or caffeine lover, the last drink should be at least four hours before you sleep. Caffeine is at peak after one hour and will stay in your blood stream for up to six hours and we know that caffeine is literally a way to stop us from falling asleep.
There you go, I hope you enjoy adopting your new lifestyle.
