Do you have a morning ritual? How do you kick off your workday?

By improving one small thing in the morning, you set the tone for your entire day. Over time, you’ll notice that these small habits will add up and suddenly you’re a morning person and you accomplish more and more throughout your day.

Avoid Technology for 20 MinsIn my house, we have “tech turn down” time in which we all put our phones on silent or turn them off once dinner is served, because that’s our time to connect face to face as a family without distractions.

Brush your teeth

The very first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is using of coconut oil around in my mouth for about 15 to 20 minutes. Oil pulling is an old Ayurvedic practice, believed to promote dental health and cure 30 systemic diseases ranging from migraines to asthma. While traditional medicine hasn’t proved that it works, it’s a practice I truly believe in.

Meditation

What better way to start your day off on the best foot possible than by removing harmful toxins from your body? I usually multi-task during this time and make my morning smoothie, get dressed and do some quiet meditation.

Stretch

Get that body moving first thing in the morning to alleviate any back and neck pain from sleeping and to aid circulation. Stretching will not only make you feel more limber, but will also increase oxygen to your brain to make you sharper.

Drink Hot Water

We hear about the endless benefits of proper hydration all the time, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that consuming H2O first thing in the morning is one of the best things you can do to keep your system running at its best. I prefer hot water with a little lemon to help with my digestion and pH levels.
