There’s nothing more important than getting some fresh air right away after you’ve woken up.  In the morning right after you get up of bed be sure you open all the windows and let some fresh air get in the room, focus on taking deep breaths for at least 10 minutes! While you’re doing that it would be really good for you to think about positive things and give some courage to yourself about the following day, just remember you’re healthy and alive! Isn’t that enough of a blessing already?! Anything else can be fixed! If you start your mornings with positive thoughts, then you’ll resist negative vibrations that may come your way more easily!

Sudden movements minutes after you’ve woken up are not a good idea and they can cause problems as well. Our body and muscles need some time to wake up too, that’s why it’s best that you do some stretching  exercises after you wash your face and teeth. If you don’t know how to do stretching routines then ask friends that go to the gym to show you, or even a simpler way to get informed is to use the net!

Exercise

After you’ve finished with the stretching, it will be ideal if you reward your body with some work out. If you do some exercise before dealing with your daily obligations, then you’ve done the right thing. The process of work out does help your body to produce a hormone that’s responsible for happiness, it helps you wake up completely, makes you more focused and ready to start the day. It also influences your health and body, helping you stay slim and fit. For a morning work out just 15 minutes are enough believe it or not – and they can make a huge difference!

After you’ve finished with the work out, jump in the shower and switch the water from hot to cold while you’re showering. This will improve your blood circulation and will completely wake you up and fill you with energy. Afterwards reward yourself by applying a scented body lotion!

A glass of coffee and a cigarette might be your ritual after you wake up, but that’s about to change! You should definitely not consume them on an empty stomach. Everyone knows how important breakfast is to kick off the day. Enjoy your breakfast in peace and not in a hurry. Ideal choice for your breakfast would be a cereal with yogurt and fresh fruit!
