The first few things you do when you wake up can have a major impact on your overall health and well-being. Here are 5 simple yet powerful morning habits to help you look and feel better every day...
#1 Drink Your Greens
Have a green juice for breakfast, or just add it to your daily ritual. It's one of the absolute things you can do to look and feel better, boost your energy levels, and prevent signs of aging!
Drinking your greens in the form of raw cold-pressed juice allows your body to instantly absorb and make use of optimal nutrition in a highly concentrated form.
#2 Drink Lemon Water
Before you eat or drink anything else, drink a glass of lemon water.
This practice first thing in the morning balances the body’s internal pH and combats inflammation, both of which are critical for healthy weight loss. Starting the day with a glass of lemon water promotes detoxification, boosts your immune system, supports healthy digestion, and promotes youthful and clear skin!
#3 Coconut Oil Pull
The benefits of this simple habit are mind-blowing. Commonly used as a method to improve dental health (and whiten teeth!), coconut oil pulling helps detoxify the body, prevents headaches, and gives you more energy.
How do you do it? Just swish around a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes, spit it out in the garbage, rinse, then brush your teeth.
Simple yet essential! Why start the morning off with a good stretch? It increases blood flow which means more energy and sharper concentration. An increase in circulation also reduces stress levels, helping you to start the day with a positive outlook!
#5 Skip the Dairy
Leave out dairy milk from your morning coffee/smoothie/granola bowl/etc... Dairy is NOT beneficial to your day-to-day energy levels or weight loss goals. Instead, go plant-based! Choose “milks” made from nuts and seeds like almond, cashew, or coconut milk.
