Tomorrow – probably is the most harmful word when it comes to changing your lifestyle. How many times has it happened that before going to bed you decide that you’ll wake up early the next day, but with the sweet temptation of the snooze button, tomorrow never comes?
Changing your daily habits can be tough. But tweaking them is as important. Once you adopt healthy habits they seamlessly get integrated into your routine. These can help you be consistent and make it seem like a less daunting task in the longer run.
If changing one’s life was easy, everyone would be doing it; but the reality is that hardly a few even try. And simply cracking the code to start your day right can have a huge impact on how the rest of your routine unfolds, just like a domino effect.
Starting your day right begins with waking up with the rising sun, which in turn begins with sleeping at the right time with regards to how many hours of sleep you’re getting. It is crucial that you get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night, and what’s even more crucial is keeping your phone/alarm clock out of your reach.
This will help you in two things – one, you can’t hit the snooze button for 5 more minutes of sleep if your alarm is far away. You’d have to get up and out of bed to turn it off, which can be quite an inconvenience! So, you’d think, “Now that I’m up, I might as well get started with my day.”
And two, you won’t lie in bed, for what seems like a few seconds, only to end up spending 30-40 minutes scrolling on your phone. Follow the 5-second-rule, if your mind signals you to get up, do it within 5 seconds to keep you from fighting your own decision.
Having some time by yourself when you wake up helps you feel calm and centered before you get sucked into the hubbub of the day. First thing you need to do as soon as you wake up is meditate and stretch to release the tension and stiffness in your body.
When you’ve ticked that off your list, spend a few minutes by yourself. It doesn’t matter what you do here, it can be something as simple as listening to music. The idea is to do a relaxing activity that you love before you officially start your day.
Next comes breakfast – often referred to as the most important meal of the day. However, a lot of people tend to skip it; don’t be one of them. You need energy to go about your day and these little daily habits can energy you have for all the tasks in a day. For example, if you’re lacking the right nutrients from a hearty breakfast, you can take the necessary vitamins to kick-start your day with a boost of active energy.
A good multivitamin tablet can make all the difference. Health OK Multivitamin Tablets have the power of Taurine and Natural Ginseng, the immunity of vitamin C, D and Zinc along with other essential vitamins and minerals to keep you moving at the right pace all day.

With Health OK, you get 24 hour active energy and when you take the first step right, everything else falls into place. You can exercise, work, have fun and do other things that you wouldn’t have been able to without a well-maintained daily routine and a necessary dose of energy.
Once you’re done with these simple morning rituals, you can set out to conquer your tasks for the day one by one, without experiencing the fatigue that would’ve come if you’d started your day in a disarray.
