How To Start A Day With 5 Easy And Refreshing Morning Habits

Ever wondered when your morning starts in an outburst like skipping breakfast and just rushing right outside the door what mood you'll be having for the rest of the day? These little things in the morning determine the rest of your day, so don't wait up, start planning accordingly.

It is quite true that health is wealth. A healthy routine can set up your day for success. Both good and bad habits are an integral part of your daily routine life, whether you are aware of it or not.

We often adapt the habits, which tend to be easy and comfortable. If you want to cultivate good habits within you, then you'll need to push yourself a little harder to make it your second nature.

Here are five morning habits that if you're willing to adapt will make your coming days a little more refreshing, healthy and energetic.

1. Start your day with a smile.

"Smile, it's a free therapy."

Well, just imagine yourself before even getting out of your bed with a smile on your face. Is it too tough to do? I don't think so.

Just give yourself a little time to smile, practice optimism and gratitude. Scientifically, it also has many health benefits. It lifts your mood, lowers your heart rate and relaxes your body. I believe one little smile is worth it.

2. Disconnect yourself from tech.

"It's not that we use technology, we live technology."

Many studies on daily routine say the first thing people do after getting up is check their smartphones, laptops and other gadgets. If you're reading this, then you probably already know it because you do that too.

What's new in my Instagram profile?

Let me check my email.

Oh my god, my battery isn't charged at all, whatsoever the reason might be.

There are some serious consequences to this. Instead of cultivating a healthy and refreshing mindset, you cultivate a mindset full of stress, anxiety, curiosity.

Just disconnect yourself from the technology for the first few hours of your day so you can begin your day with positivity rather than harmful thoughts.

3. Hydrate

"Health is the greatest possession."

After this, you can just drink water to hydrate your body. You can also add lemon to a warm glass of water as it has some real good and healthy benefits. It is rich in Vitamin C, removes toxins from your body, good breath, weight loss and stimulates metabolism and digestion.

Bottoms up first thing in the morning for a refreshing and energetic day!

4. Clean up your Mess.

"We become what we repeatedly do."

When asking successful people, "What's your morning routine?" the common answer that came up was making their bed. Though it seems like a waste of time, making your bed in the morning can make the start of your day feel accomplished.

You can imagine saying, "Yeah man! I started my day by completing a task, I am ready for the rest to come."

Simply by taking charge of the day and completing such simple tasks will give you some motivation to take on more and more throughout the day, and people around you will learn from it.

5. Exercise and Meditate

"Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live."

Your mind needs exercise as much as your body does whether it is yoga, a quick set of push-ups, hitting the gym, walking with your dog or just meditating sitting at one place, all of these activities will boost up your mind as well as your body.

Just keep your morning routine interesting with all of these little activities because in the end, you will be the one who's going to notice the changes in you. Some health benefits of meditation are a reduce in stress, helping with chronic pain, improving immunity, improving sleep and improving focus.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
