3 Simple Ways To Invigorate Your Mornings

Rise and shine! Whether you love it or not, making the most of your morning hours may be the key to healthy, positive, and successful life. Waking up with the sun is a common trait found among many of the world’s most influential people. And, it’s a principle preached by health practitioners through the ages.

Not convinced that the early hours will become your new BFF? Listen to this…According to Inc. Magazine, early birds have been found to be not only more productive, but more proactive as well.

Here are 3 things I do every morning before I jump in the shower…

morning-burst1. Do a Shot (Of Ginger)

Morning is the perfect time to stimulate the body and wake up! Ginger root has been used for centuries to aid in better digestion, plus it’s a natural anti-inflammatory.

To make a morning ginger shot, boil a cup of hot water, squeeze in a lemon, and add in a few few cubes of freshly-chopped ginger. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper!

2. Walk Barefoot

Before breakfast, I enjoy a nature walk barefoot in the grass (I call this “grounding”). As silly as it sounds, studies have shown that grounding has remarkable health advantages, such as increasing antioxidants and reducing inflammation.

3. Fire Up Your Powerhouse

It’s hard to go from zero to sixty. A quick pilates routine can gently lulls you out of a sleepy state.

Activating the core with a pilates routine has multiple benefits. It starts to warm up the body, and loosens the joints. And, it signals the intestinal track that it’s time to get moving! What an invigorating way to start the day.
