17 May 3 Ways to Get Rid of your Morning Blues I Mindfulness
There are an endless amount of funny memes that express the brutality of early morning. Let’s face it. Waking up in the morning is a tough and daunting task. Everyone wants to sleep in, even for five extra minutes. What’s worse is that people get cranky and purposely avoid social interaction. But in most cases, people rely on caffeine doses to get through the day. Now, the irony is that we can all become a morning person. It only comes down to one simple principle, mindfulness.
Get up and get going!
You don’t necessarily have to wake up at 5 am sharp every morning but a simple practice of waking up 10-15 minutes ahead is sufficient. Start your day by drinking 500ml of water. This will help to cleanse your body and let out all the wastes that are trapped inside your body.
Practice mindfulness by being present in the moment.
The beauty of the morning is the harmony of watching the sunrise, listening to birds chirping and gazing at the lightly painted sky. The objective is to live the moment and embrace what life has to offer at its purity.
Create your own green juice!
Just blend in any vegetables and fruits from the fridge and let it the blender take care of the magic. A morning zest of vitamins and nutrients help to brighten the day and recharge your body with a burst of energy. My favorite green juice consists of apples, cucumber, celery stalks, kale leaves, ginger juice, and spinach. Just one glass of juice to your current diet can help enhance your immunity and ensure that you’re energized for work every day!
Morning can be fun and exciting. Make it your own morning ritual with your favorite green punch and a short exercise on mindfulness. Perhaps get some inspiration from the minions to kick-start the morning!
