Five small steps towards a stronger start to your day.

This is something I’ve been trailing the past few weeks.  It’s not rocket science, and it’s not lifechanging., but it does make for a stronger start to a day.  

– Do not reach for your phone the minute you wake and check Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. This only scrambles a rested brain before you start the day.

– Get out of bed and make it.  Simple, but powerful.

– Treat your body to 5 minutes of stretching.  Throw down a towel or yoga mat and give it a try.  I bet once your body starts to loosen you will want more.

– Have a cold shower.  This one is a little brutal, but science shows benefit of cold exposure on the nervous system.  Look at Wim Hof if you don’t believe me.

– Treat yourself to a cup of your finest coffee.  Or a green juice if that’s your thing.  Or a ginger tea. Take your time and appreciate something simple.

– List 5 things you are grateful for.  Why?  Because we are hard-wired to look for problems and negativity.  Give yourself a chance to recognise something positive.

Why bother?  Because the best investment you can make is in yourself, and the little things add up.  Have a great day!
