FOUR THINGS YOU CAN DO IN THE MORNING BEFORE CHECKING YOUR PHONE



In this day in age it’s easy to reach for your phone at every given second. But it’s  important to step back, catch your breath and detach from your devices on a daily basis. So here are four things you can do in the morning that’ll make your day more pleasant and keep you in the present. 


1. Drink a glass of water

We all know that water will save your life and have your edges snatched. It’s the simplest of things but yet crucial to all things self care. Drinking a glass of water in the mornings will help kick start your metabolism, hydrate after that long rest, and flush your system. Think of it as a health investment first thing in the morning.

2. Stretch/ Short Morning Workout 

If you don't already have a morning workout routine that you like, just a simple stretch will be enough to get your body awake for the day! Anything from yoga, jumping jacks, push-ups will get your blood flowing and ready to continue your boss babe lifestyle. 

3. Journaling/ Prayer 

Your mind is another muscle that you should stretch and clear up in the morning. Jotting a though down or opening up in prayer is an awesome way to get you thinking and prepare your mind for the day. This also gives your mind the room to make space for the possibilities of new thoughts and ideas throughout your day. 

4. Catch up on a Good Read

What you read in the morning and fill your mind with can heavily influence your day. If you’re in a HaHa Davis kind of mood, read something funny, if you need some financial advice listen to a great audiobook, or if you just want to read that spicy book on your night stand, do that too sis! Reading is a great way to get your day rolling without scrolling through that Instagram timeline.

There are so many other things we can pick up or do before grabbing our phones first thing in the morning. If you don’t already, give one of these a try and see what works best for you!
