Here are 21 easy things to add to your daily routine for healthy body and mind!
1. Say Any 5 Affirmations as Soon as You Open Your Eyes in the Morning
As soon as you wake up, say five positive affirmations to set a positive tone for the day. Affirmations are powerful reminders that can boost your self-esteem, increase motivation, and minimize negative thoughts, along with helping you attract the things you truly desire.
You can choose one main theme for the day, say money, beauty or happiness and speak 5 affirmations for the same. For instance, if you want to attract loads of money, you can say –
- I am standing in a river of money, and it flows to me effortlessly!
- I attract money from every direction.
- Money showers rain down on me like a glittering waterfall!
- I am an irresistible magnet who effortlessly pulls wealth towards me!
- Money loves to dance around me and shower me with its abundance!
Keep your list of affirmations close to your bed, or use an app that provides daily affirmations. But try to speak these affirmations when you’re half asleep, half awake. At that time, it goes directly into your sub-concious mind and works 100x better!
2. Let the Morning Sun Rays Inside Your Home
Start the day with a burst of sunlight! Open your curtains wide and let those energizing rays pour into your living space. Exposure to natural light in the morning improves mood, boosts energy, and regulates your sleep cycle.
Plus, it’s a great way to appreciate the beauty of nature first thing in the morning. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea by the window and soak up that glorious sunshine.
3. Start Your Day with a Warm Glass of Water, Lemon, and Honey
Embrace the magic potion that is warm water combined with lemon and honey! Add this concoction in your morning routine can aid digestion, boost your immunity, and help with weight management.
The vibrant flavors of lemon and honey add a delightful kick to your morning and refresh your senses. Grab a glass, mix this tasty drink, and sip your way to better health.
4. Have a Colorful, Healthy Breakfast
Breakfast should be a feast for your eyes and your taste buds. Infuse color and nutrition into your morning meal by adding a variety of fruits, vegetables, and other wholesome ingredients.
A colorful breakfast will keep you full, provide essential nutrients, and encourage healthy choices throughout the entire day. Make your first meal of the day an explosion of fun flavors and nutrients.
5. Do at Least 5 Steps of Skincare Routine
Treat your skin to a luxurious routine that includes at least five steps, such as cleansing, toning, applying a serum, moisturizing, and using sunscreen.
A dedicated skincare routine encourages self-care, maintains a healthy complexion, and ensures you’re glowing from the inside out. Dedicate time each morning to pamper your skin and watch your confidence soar.
6. Take your Antioxidants & Multi-Vitamins
Elevate your physical and mental health game with antioxidants and multi-vitamins! Supplements can help to fill nutrient gaps, support your immune system, and optimize your health. And antioxidants are especially great for glowing skin!
Consult with your healthcare professional before starting a supplement regimen to ensure you’re taking the right ones for your specific needs. Pop that vitamin and feel the benefits for the rest of your day.
7. Set Alarms to Drink an Adequate Amount of Water
Hydration is key, and setting alarms on your phone is a brilliant way to make sure you’re drinking enough water throughout the day. Staying properly hydrated boosts energy, improves cognitive function, and aids digestion.
Customize your alarms with fun sounds or motivational messages to make sure you’re staying on track with your water goals. I have so many more ways for you to stay hydrated all day, and this is just one of them!
8. Make a Morning Gratitude List
Kickstart your day with a boost of positivity by making a morning gratitude list. Jot down at least three things you’re truly grateful for. They could be as simple as a good workout, moving partner, a delicious meal or a warm smile from a stranger.
Cultivating an attitude of gratitude has been shown to increase happiness and life satisfaction, lower stress levels, and improve overall well being. Plus, it’s the perfect way to start your day from a place of appreciation and contentment. Give it a try, and watch the good vibes roll in!
9. Watch Out Your Caffeine Intake
While a morning cuppa may seem like an indispensable part of your daily routine, it’s essential to watch your caffeine intake throughout the day. Excessive caffeine consumption can lead to insomnia, increased heart rate, and anxiety.
Swap out some of your caffeinated beverages for herbal teas or lower-caffeine options like green tea. Your body (mind and sleep) will thank you for the change!
10. Get Fit and Socialize
Why not combine two necessary aspects of a healthier lifestyle – exercise and socializing – into one mega feel-good activity? Join a workout class, running club, or sports team in your area.
Not only will you be staying active and fit, but you’ll also make connections with like-minded individuals. And don’t forget the numerous mental health benefits of regular social interaction!
11. Try to Turn Every Negative Thought into a Positive One
Negative thoughts can be a significant mood-killer and could contribute to feelings of low self-esteem or unproductive behavior. Make it a daily practice to catch yourself when a negative thought pops into your head and turn it into a positive one.
For example, change “I can’t do this” into “I’ll give it my best shot.” This simple mindset shift can make a world of difference in your general well being.
12. Get Your Daily Dose of Laughter
They say “laughter is the best medicine,” and we couldn’t agree more! It’s time to make this magical remedy an essential part of your daily routine. Find some hilarious videos, attend a virtual comedy show, or just share a hearty laugh with a loved one.
Laughing not only boosts your mood but also helps strengthen your immune system. Plus, it involves face muscles’ workout so, don’t hold back on those giggles. Laugh-a-lot, live-a-lot!
13. Declutter or clean One Space Every Day, Small or Big
Decluttering isn’t just about having a tidy living space; it’s also about creating mental clarity and reducing stress.
Make it a point to declutter one small or big space in your home every day, be it your nightstand, kitchen countertop, or hall closet. This process can be quite therapeutic and can make your environment more enjoyable to be in.
14. Take 5 Minute Self-Care Breaks
We all live busy, demanding lives, but it’s so important to remember to take care of ourselves. Incorporate 5-minute self-care breaks throughout your day, whether it’s savoring a cup of tea, doing some deep breathing exercises, or even doodling.
These short breaks will refuel your mental energy and can make you more productive in the long run.
15. Reduce or Compensate Your Alcohol Intake with Healthy Drinks
Instead of reaching for that glass of wine or bottle of beer, try something more refreshing and beneficial for your body. Swap out alcoholic beverages with fun and flavorful mocktails, delicious fruit-infused water, or energizing green smoothies!
If you just cannot do without a drink or two, just make sure you’re compensating the alcohol with healthy & refreshing drinks the next day, like coconut water or wheatgrass shot! Trust me, it’ll be wonderful for your physical health!
16. Go on a 2-Hour Digital Detox
We live in a world where screens are everywhere, and sometimes, we need a break to recharge our minds. Try to allocate at least two hours each day to unplug and disconnect from your digital devices everyday. Yep, ever. single. day.
Whether you spend that time reading a book, taking a nature walk, painting, or meditating, the mental clarity and decreased stress levels will be worth it. Plus, your eyes will love you more for saying no to blue light!
The world won’t end without you knowing what happened on social media for a couple of hours – promise!
17. Swap Sugary Desserts for Fresh Fruit
Who says living healthy means depriving yourself of satisfying your sweet tooth? The key is to swap out the processed sugary treats for nature’s sweets – fresh fruit!
Enjoy the vibrant colors and flavors by making beautiful fruit salads, freezing grapes for a chilly treat, or simply snacking on a juicy watermelon slice. You’ll not only satisfy your cravings but also reap the nutrients and antioxidants fruits have to offer. It’s a win-win!
18. Celebrate Your Small Wins
Sometimes, we focus too much on the big goals and forget to appreciate the mini accomplishments that come with progress. From now on, take a moment each day to pat yourself on the back for any small wins.
It could be as simple as hitting your daily water intake goal, cooking a new healthy meal, or waking up on time without pressing snooze. Celebrating these minor victories will boost your motivation and make the whole process more fun!
19. Connect with Nature
Mother Nature has a myriad of beautiful secrets up her sleeve. Why not choose the path less traveled, and make it a point to connect with the great outdoors each day?
Go for a morning stroll in the park, tend to your little garden, or simply relax under a tree and allow the gentle rustle of leaves to enchant you. Breathing the fresh air is super beneficial for your mind, body, and soul. Get back to your roots, Nature awaits!
20. Practice Simple Deskercises
“Deskercise” – the art of working out while working! Sounds like a dream, right? Well, your desk jobs don’t have to mean endless hours of sitting in one place any more.
Try incorporating simple stretches or some chair-based exercises during your workday. Torso twists, leg lifts, or even tapping your feet can keep you active and help improve blood circulation.
Deskercising is your secret weapon against a sedentary lifestyle. Slay while you slay!
21. Sleep Like a Kid
Remember when you were a kid and couldn’t wait for bedtime? Let’s bring back the excitement for a good night’s sleep! Create a better sleep haven with cozy blankets, calming scents, and a bedtime routine, where you fall asleep on time.
