Some simple, but amazing ideas!
What’s up everyone and welcome to my new article, today we have an article on morning routine while in quarantine. I know this is a crazy, weird and unforgettable time that we have never seen and live through before in our lives.
So today, I am gonna tell show how to stay fit in quarantine and kick-start your day in a smart manner.
I am going to tell you some morning habits that would keep you healthy even in quarantine. So let’s get started!
The first thing that we should do just after we wake up is drink some water. Some of the benefits of doing that are as follows :
• It stabilizes your metabolism
You can drink lukewarm water or normal water that’s all on you, but the thing is that studies prove that drinking water in the morning fires up your metabolism.
• When you wake up, your body is dehydrated
After a sleep of eight to nine hours, our body gets dehydrated and it is like a fast of eight hours, so if you are not feeling thirsty, then even drink water as it hydrates your body.
• Our brain tissue is nothing but 75% water
When you are hydrated, your brain requires less fuel to think good and it is good for both brain and body.
• It helps your body to flush out toxins
Studies have proven that drinking water in the morning helps in flushing out the toxins from our body.
2. Don’t touch your phone
No! I am not telling you to not touch your phone the whole day, I am just telling to avoid your phone in the morning just after you wake up. I know it’s hard to avoid our mobile phones in quarantine as we do not have many options to pass our time.
I think almost all people out there check their phones just after they wake up and it is normal, I mean this happens with all of us but we can avoid this as it leads to the following results:
• Increase anxiety and stress
When you wake up and check your phone, you are being hit with the new messages, emails, and direct messages and much other stuff that often creates stress and anxiety in the mind.
• Grabs your attention
As you wake up, we need to feel the fresh morning vibes but instead of doing that we check our phones. We read our emails, messages, people’s opinions and start thinking about that and it leads to feel negative and disturb our mind’s attention.
• You are distracted from your aim for the rest of the day
Starting the day in this way results in the loss of focus for the rest of the day. According to Dr. Nikole Benders-Hadi, “The information overload that hits [you] before you’re fully awake interferes with your ability to prioritize tasks.”
I know everyone is not gym freak, but here, workout means giving at least 30 minutes to your body in order to stay healthy. There are different varieties of workout, I like strength training and many guys out there like endurance training, what I am trying to say is we should do some physical activity especially nowadays in quarantine because we are passing all our time on a bed or on the sofa. So, morning workout helps us to burn some calories which is so important for our body.
Some of the benefits of working out in the morning are as follows:
• Increase focus
This is the best part of doing exercise in the morning as it increases our focus and helps us to remain alert all day long.
• Better mood
You could actually feel this one if you do exercise in the morning. It helps you to start your day on a positive note and you will also feel a sense of accomplishment which is a plus point.
• Smart and healthier food choices
Those people who do exercise in the morning have a choice to start their day on a healthy note. They can eat a healthy meal after a workout which increases their energy and immunity.
4. Analyze your plans for the rest of the day
So, you woke up, you drunk some water, you avoided our cell phones and we have worked out also. Now it’s time to make the plans for the whole day and analyze how you are spending the day.
I know this is quarantine days but it doesn’t mean that we spent our time laying down on the bed and watching movies. We can learn new things, make some new strategies for our office work.
We should make our TO- DO’s super clear as it helps us to be a better person each and every day.
So that’s it guys, these are some tips in which I told you how to stay healthy and focused especially in quarantine. I hope you found it beneficial.
