Greet the day with more energy, enthusiasm and ease. Here are three small, simple changes that add up to a bright-eyed start. Plus, your healthy habits are a good example for your kids.
- TAKE A DRINK
You are the most dehydrated after a night's sleep. So replenish yourself with a glass of water first thing in the morning. For an extra detox boost add a wedge of lemon. Staying hydrated is a simple way to stay healthy and feel great all day long.
- SAY THANKS
Think of one thing you are grateful for before you get out of bed. Starting your day with gratitude can recalibrate your mind to focus on the good things that happen during your day and lighten your mood.
- BREAK THE FAST
Eating a nutritious breakfast daily is proven to help people have more energy, improve concentration and focus, and maintain a healthy weight. Some easy breakfast options to get you nourished and out the door include...
- Oatmeal topped with berries and walnuts
- Hardboiled egg and a piece of fresh fruit
- Plain Greek yogurt mixed with fresh peaches and a sprinkle of cinnamon
- Whole wheat toast topped with almond butter, sliced strawberries, a dash of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey
