Morning Habits to Kick ASAP
Raise your hand if you're guilty of one/all of these.
Immediately reaching for your phone
Not planning the day
We've all been there but here's the WHY behind breaking these habits.
1-Scrolling: Your brain waves haven't naturally processed being awake. By reaching for a device you're priming your brain for an increased stress response. Solution? Avoid technology for the first hour after waking. Your stress levels will thank you!
2-Snoozing: Natural, restorative sleep (REM) is interrupted with that extra 10+ minutes. Studies have shown that snoozing makes you feel MORE tired! Solution: Aim for 7-9 hours a night with the same sleep/wake times within 20 minutes even on the weekends.
3-Skipping breakfast: Mixed data on this one for sure. However, having a balanced breakfast with healthy fats, moderate carbs and protein will prepare your metabolism prepared to take on the day. Solution: rather than reaching for coffee and a danish at Scooters see some of my many quick breakfast options from previous posts.
4-Not planning your day: If you're not planning it, someone else will capitalize on your time. Consider specific time blocks for essential tasks like exercise, preparing a healthy meal, and downtime! Add in focused tasks that require more brainpower when you feel at your very best. Add these blocks to your calendar to be the lady boss.
