Everyone says that the way one starts their morning will dictate the rest of their day.
There are a lot of options on how to start your day and it all depends on the type of person you are. Do you wake up hungry, does it take you longer to get out of bed, do you need to meditate before starting your day, need a coffee before you can speak or wake up?
You need realistic goals that actually work for you and your habits.
Whether it is a hot water and a slice of lemon first thing in the morning to encourage a healthy digestion or a celery juice to aid digestion and bloating, it is important to establish a morning ritual.
Maybe waking up early means taking care of the children and your morning ritual starts later, there are options you just have to fit them in!
Oil Pulling and Body Brushing
Or you are the type of person that tolerate oils soon after waking up, in which case look into oil pulling. Twenty minutes of silence while the oil is flowed through the mouth removing the toxins. This gives you time to prepare for your day, reflect, or body brush. Remember to always move the brush towards your heart using long strokes from your feet to your neck. This will help rid of toxins, dead skin, and allow nutrients into your body.
Oils can also be consumed first thing in the morning for full benefits: Black Cumin Seed oil (promotes liver health, combats diabetes, wonderful for hair and nails) and the wonderful Liposomal Vitamin C (powerful antioxidant, immune system stimulant, supports cardiovascular health and brain function) or maybe you want to give your coffee a super boost?
Bulletproof coffeee has been around for a awhile, in fact in Asia they have been consuming their coffee with ghee or a high quality butter for years. And now you can order the coffee and the MCT oil that will give you energy and clarity throughout your day. And if you dont drink coffee just take MCT oil pure!
The most important meal of the day! And what happens when your schedule does not allow for a slow leisure breakfast? Well look into the endless posts on food to make on the go or stick with HIVE Granola and you will be set for the day!
Whether you have a large breakfast or something on the go, keep in mind the most important is the ingredients. Get good quality, clean, ingredients and slowly consume your food. Be mindful of what you are putting into your body. It is all fine and good to get something on the go but the more you get used to controlling and knowing what you are putting in your body the better you understand yourself and how you digest.
