*Try getting up at least 30 minutes earlier than the rest of your family. Having that early morning time to enjoy some coffee or tea and wake up gradually before responding to everyone else’s needs will start your day on the right note.

*Drink at least eight ounces of water before you drink anything else. This gets your healthy hydration habit off to a good start. You might try drinking warm water and adding the juice of half a fresh-squeezed lemon to it. According to Healthline, your body benefits from drinking lemon water in the following ways: it promotes hydration, it’s a good source of vitamin C, it supports weight loss, it improves your skin quality, and it aids digestion. Lots of benefits for a simple drink! This citrus juice presser makes squeezing lemons much easier!


*Write morning pages for five minutes. You can read more about the practice in this brief article HERE or watch THIS video to learn more.
