Every now an then we need that extra kick to get are days going. Morning can be hard to conquer and that 4th cup of coffee really isn't doing it for your, is it? Here are a few surefire ways to start your morning off the right way.
1. Eat Breakfast
This one may seem obvious but it makes all the difference. A lot of the time we're having a hard time waking up in the morning were not giving our body the proper nutrition it needs to fuel itself through that brutal case of the mondays. Take the time to feed your body and reap the benefits throughout the day.
2. Drink a Protein Shake
Sometimes it's hard to eat first thing in the morning, thats fine, we get it. This is where the handy little protein shake comes in. These portable protein powerpacks are more than the bro-drink you've been made to believe. Drinking a protein shake in the morning will give your body the energy to it needs to repair any muscle breakdown from yesterday's workout, as well as kick start your metabolism so you can get to burnin' those calories.
This is a great way to start any morning. Exercising first think in the morning will not only wake your body up and get your ready to perform, it will help wake your mind so you can think more clearly and finally it will give you an initial calorie burn to start your day with. Altogether this is a trifecta of morning benefits.
Stretching might be second mot important only to eating in the morning. While we sleep, any lactic acid in our muscles will cause them to become stiff which in turn causes the individual muscle fibers to be acting as a group. This can cause cramps or soreness and its overall just uncomfortable. Stretching in the morning releases all this acid as well as promoting blood flow through your body making you feel awake and ready to take on the day.
The best takeaway from this is to always AT LEAST Eat and Stretch every morning before you start your day. Your body and mind will thank you.
