2. Wake up early and breath the fresh morning air
There are many reasons to be a morning person.
waking up early motivates you to start healthy lifestyle practices like – yoga, meditation and morning workouts.
Also, waking up early gives you more hours to work and then you can chill in the evening.
If you are not a morning person… then gradually try to wake up 10 -20 minutes earlier daily… it will help you without pushing yourself too much.
3. Never miss your breakfast
Breakfast is important and if you want to have an energetic day then you should never miss it.
After waking up drink some water. After that, drink your coffee or tea. Then eat a nice breakfast. But remember, always eat breakfast within two hours from waking up.
4. Exercise daily to get a fit body
Exercise is the key to have a healthy body. Nowadays due to the advancement of technology, we have to do less physical work. And for that reason, we store a lot of unused calories. To stay fit and healthy you need to do regular physical exercise.
Try to include morning jogging/yoga or a gym session in your daily routine.
Personally, I do yoga once in a week and gym 3 days a week.
