Breakfast is the start of the day… Or is it? Here is a list of essential simple things you should try and do before you eat your most important meal.
Breakfast is a ritual that all of us should respect. However, it is not the first thing you do during the day. Our routine can start with something else, which can lead to a more healthy lifestyle and can help create a strong appetite. Have you ever done any of these activities before eating in the morning? Here is a list of things you should consider adding to your daily routine before breakfast.
Brush Your Teeth
As soon as you get up, hit the bathroom and prepare for your routine. It is essential to brush your teeth to eliminate all the germs that were there through the night. If you wait for after breakfast to do this, your germs could find their way through your stomach while you are eating and this could make you sick.
The early morning is fresh and soothing, especially in the summer. Consider going out while the sun is rising to take a nature walk: a stroll through the park, or a gentle joy by the river can work wonders both on your mind and your body.
After exercising your body, tone your mind. Many are the positive effects of morning meditation: it calms your brain and makes you positive for what is to come during the day.
Take a Shower
Many people take their showers and get clean the night before, but hear me out. Taking a short shower in the morning not only gets you clean, but also wakes you up and washes away the sweat from the previous activities. It only takes a couple of minutes, but you will thank me once you try it.
Warm Water with Honey
Consuming warm water with honey on an empty stomach will help you wash away the toxins and will give you a shot of energy in liquid form on which to base the first part of the day. Also, try lukewarm water with lemon juice as a variant.
I hope you will find these tips useful. Remember; there are so many things you can do before breakfast! Get active, wake up a little early, and your body will thank you.
