Live a Healthier Lifestyle! | What's your morning routine?
People are creatures of habit, and routines offer a way to promote health and wellness through structure and organization. Having a routine can greatly improve your health.
Many people who don’t have any type of routine suffer from:
Stress. No routine often means having the constant worry of “when will I get it all done.”
Poor sleep. Without a daily routine at work and/or home, you may find yourself playing catch-up with yesterday’s to-do list. If you’re always behind on what should have been done the day before, you’re likely also staying awake worrying about what didn’t.
Poor eating. Unhealthy diets (like eating lots of fast food) become the norm if there isn’t time scheduled for grocery shopping. Quick, unhealthy substitutes become the next best food option.
Poor physical condition. Working out usually requires some advance planning.
Ineffective use of time. Often, no routine means you simply run out of time, leaving things undone and not making the most of your time.
Does your current morning routine consist of hitting the snooze button four times and walking out the door five minutes late? Having a morning routine can make all the difference in being productive, achieving goals, and feeling organized. It is well known that morning routines can be a deal breaker for people having great, productive days. The following suggestions can help you set up an effective morning routine.
