Many sporting events are won or lost before the game is even played in the preparation, or lack thereof, for the event.
We can apply that same mindset to our lives, aiming to Win the Morning to start our days off strong! It doesn’t have to be complicated. The following challenges will help you find ways to prime your body, mind, and nervous system that you can stick with long-term.
HEALTHY IS WINNING THE MORNING
As we said above, the first step to winning the morning is priming your body by firing your core and stabilizing muscles. This could be through a plank, squats, or stretching tight muscles. Next, prime your mind to spark creativity and align your thoughts and emotions; read something that inspires you or makes you laugh, or write down three things you’re grateful for. Finally, prime your nervous system. You can do this through a 1-minute cold shower, singing while dancing, or doing anything that activates your whole body.
HEALTHY IS A MORNING ROUTINE
The first 30 minutes after waking up paves the way for the rest of your day. You can see a major impact on your physical and mental health, and even combat cancer, by keeping this part of your day stress-free. Practicing a morning routine (even a simple one) releases positive hormones that balance out your morning cortisol spike and keep your stress levels low throughout the day.
HEALTHY IS NO SUGAR OR FLOUR FOR BREAKFAST
When you “break your fast” in the morning, your first calories of the day are setting up your body for steady energy and proper hormone regulation. However, spiking your blood sugar can set you up for a day of moodiness, cravings, and hormone disruption. Aim for healthy fats and proteins instead.
Take control of your health.
All of these are simple changes that will lead to big impacts over time for your health. Sign up for your coaching session today to explore these challenges with our team of coaches, and we’ll find the easiest ways to fit these into your lifestyle.
