Why does it MATTER how you start your day? Because every day is a new beginning. A reset. A fresh start.
Here’s why these things matter to me:
💦 There are literally hundreds of reasons why staying hydrated improves how your body functions. By drinking a BIG bottle of water before anything else, I get a jump start on my hydration. I fill my bottle the night before and put it next to the coffee machine. I don’t think, I just chug. Only then is it coffee time.
🙏🏼 It’s easy to get swept into the day. To immediately start grumbling about kid pick-ups and drop-offs, the weather, the traffic, the work, the money, the dinner… so first, reflect on something AWESOME in your life. Choose to be thankful for that dose of awesome.
💊 If I don’t take my vitamins in the morning, I will not remember later. Period. If I take them with my big bottle of water, it’s done and it’s just one more thing that I don’t have to be frustrated about later on that I forgot to do it.
🍳 It can be tough to get enough protein in a day. I always always always have a source of protein at breakfast. It keeps me full for longer, it helps with building muscle, and it tastes delicious.
🐶 Quick puppy snuggles fill the soul. My dog loves me no matter what. I love his ears. I love his goldie smile. It’s a moment when I am thinking about nothing other than his furry squishy face. Don’t discount the importance of moments like this, where the the weight of anything in your life disappears.
