Welcome back to the Weight Loss Lifestyle Challenge. How are you liking it so far?
Today is day 3, which means it’s time to talk about your daily routines, starting with your morning routine. Everyone has a morning routine, which simply consists of the tasks you do each day after you wake up. But, is your current morning routine working for your health and weight loss goals?
Let’s find out.
How much time do you give yourself each morning? This is really the first thing you should ask yourself, because if you barely have enough time to get ready for work, you probably don’t have much wiggle room for adding more to your morning routine.
If you are constantly rushed and always running late, the first thing you need to do is set your alarm for earlier, so you can practice some healthy habits before the family wakes up.
Do you have any personal or self-care time? Next, think about the tasks you complete each morning. If none of them have to do with relaxing, eating a healthy breakfast, or moving your body, it’s time to reevaluate how you spend your time.
What healthy habits can you add? Finally, think of what you would like to add to your morning routine to help change your lifestyle to a healthier one. Maybe you do yoga in the morning, pray, write in your journal, read a chapter from a book, or make yourself a nutritious smoothie.
Tip – Set your alarm about 30 minutes earlier than necessary to fit in more tasks during your morning routine.
