A successful day starts with a simple and effective morning routine.
In this blog post I'll show you the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning, aiming to set myself up for creativity and productivity.
Waking up with motivation everyday is near impossible. There are hundreds of reasons why you might not feel your best every morning, I'm sure you can name a few...
Don't rely on fate to dictate your morning mood, take control!
Having a simple process in place that you follow every morning means you can quickly alter your state to your most positive, creative and effective self.
Rehydration is step one of a good morning routine.
When we sleep we lose water through sweat and breathing.
A slight headache when you wake up and/or instant hunger might actually be dehydration.
Here's how to make a quick drink to rehydrate your body first thing in the morning.
What you need:
- Half a lemon
- 6 grinds of the salt shaker
- Big tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- Plenty of water
Put all the ingredients in a tall glass and mix with a spoon.
Apart from rehydration, this magic potion has some hidden benefits:
ACV and water stave off initial morning hunger
Electrolytes from the salt clear your head
Lemon balances your PH and tastes great
It's low in sugar so it doesn't spike your glucose levels
Plus (this is a big one for me), it gives you something methodical to nail first thing in the morning setting yourself up for a productive day.
Give it a try and let me know how you go!
