How to Establish a Healthy and Active Morning Routine

Morning Routine

Get Active

Waking up in the morning can be hard, especially during the winter months when the weather is cold and dry, forcing us to want to stay in bed. Getting up and being active in the morning may seem challenging, but it’s one of the best things you can do to build the foundation for your day. Spring is coming! This is also a great time to implement change for the new year. Making it a point to get moving and establish a routine in the morning can be a game changer when it comes to your overall wellness, both physically and mentally.

Set an Alarm

One of the best ways to hold yourself accountable for your routine is to set an alarm and wake up at a reasonable time. Having a proper sleep schedule is essential to improve and keep tabs on your health. Adults tend to need an average of seven to eight hours of sleep, so making it a priority to establish a healthy sleep routine is crucial. Additionally, getting too much sleep can sometimes make you more tired than usual, so it’s best to even out your schedule.

Get Moving

Making the effort to incorporate movement in the mornings can actually be a huge help in boosting your energy and productivity throughout the day. Whether you enjoy going on a nice walk or taking a fitness class, there are many options to help you achieve an active routine. If you’re going to be spending your time being active outdoors, remember to bring essential items that’ll help protect you. Something as small as having a protective pair of sunglasses to combat harmful UV rays can make a world of a difference in preserving your eye and skin health. Taking the proper precautions before engaging in physical activity should always remain a main priority.

Active Adults Get Moving



In addition to having protective gear, one of the best things you can do for your body before exercising is stretching. Stretching not only improves your range of motion, but also protects and prevents any serious injuries from occurring. Be sure to consult an expert for the best stretches that’ll benefit your form of exercise, and use proper tools if needed. Certain items like resistance bands can help to relax and strengthen your muscles before working out.

Nutritious Breakfast

Incorporating a nutritious breakfast into your routine is immensely important. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you want to ensure your body is receiving the proper nutrients it needs to take on the rest of your day. Doing your research to find the best foods before and after your workout can improve the overall state of your body. Fresh fruits, oatmeal, and yogurt are all great options to consume either before or after you exercise. No matter what you choose, make it a priority to include some form of protein and simple carbohydrates to nourish your body as quickly as possible.
