A therapist isn't needed to tell you that you can enjoy the benefits of music and what it has to offer, but if you crank up the music and start your day, you will put a skip in your step before you've even left the house. Listening to music and dancing like crazy also creates a sense of fun, and that's more of what you need to feel good! The music complements your workout in so many ways, so why not breakfast with it on? It'll stimulate your mind, get your body moving and elevate your mood!

Take A Shower
Everyone thinks that a bath is an excellent idea to relax, but a shower is the best way to feel upbeat and invigorated to start the day. Many people shower in the morning, but they rush it to get washed and get on with the day. A shower should make you feel alive; the water makes the blood rush to the surface of your skin, which wakes you up and makes you feel ready for the day. The water should loosen your muscles and at the end of the shower, blasting the cold water can help you to wake up properly. Give yourself more than a lick and a promise and center yourself.

Drink Something Green
The ultimate battle of apple cider vs apple juice is one thing, but green tea is the ultimate green way to start the day. A warm cup of tea is one thing, but green tea is warm, soothing and prepares you for the day ahead. You’ll feel nurtured and nourished, and as it’s loaded in antioxidants, you’re going to feel fantastic to the fingertips. It’s a good habit to start your day with, and green tea supports a healthy lifestyle choice.

Sometimes, writing down your feelings can have an enormous impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. Journaling will help your stress and help you to manage your emotional health far better while being something that leads to greater self-awareness. The things that you write down can be revisited at a later time so you can assess your feelings and learn from them. Use journals as a reflection!

Go For A Walk
Most people like to do their exercise first thing in the morning. It helps to set them up for the day, making them feel energized and ready to go. They’re not wrong. Starting your day half an hour earlier and setting the alarm to go for a walk is a smart thing to do.

You will sleep better at night, lower your stress levels and really improve your risk of numerous other health conditions, too. Take the dog if you have one; either way, your walk will give you some clarity for the day ahead.

Take the time to get to know what works for you in the morning, and you will be able to start every day positively. Your morning should be a happy one.
