The Importance of A Morning Routine For Health And Wellness
Health and wellness constitute a broad range of concepts, habits and ideas but, in my opinion, break down to a simple subject. That subject is, how do you feel?
Feeling is such a great barometer to help you realize how you are truly fairing in your overall health and wellness and what you may need to improve.
Do you feel healthy, energized and vibrant? Or do you feel sluggish, sick and tired?
You be your own judge on your current state, but be enthused that it only takes a switch up of a few key morning habits that can get you to where you would like to be.
Healthy habits all start in the morning the first hour after we wake up just as our day starts the hour after we wake up. If you are able to better control what you do in that period of time, the better off you will feel.
A morning routine is so crucial for your health and wellness because it sets off how the whole rest of your day will play out: how you react or respond to other people, how well or poor your perform your job at work or even how much energy you have to play with your children in the evening.
Mastering your morning habits can be a large difference maker in the quality of your days. If you start off on the right foot you will be amazed at the progress you will enjoy in your daily affairs.
What Areas Can You Improve In Your Morning Routine?
Losing weight and burning fat begins the second after you wake up. Your habits in that crucial time are what makes or breaks your bodies metabolism and how well you will be burning calories throughout the day.
So the most important habits to understand for losing weight and burning fat are what you are putting into your body: what you eat and what you drink.
Now you may already know this and think this is basic, and it is. But do you actually feed your body the right fuel?
If not you could be suffering dramatic, negative effects that limit your ability to reach your weight loss goals or acquire the state of wellness you desire.
If your current morning ritual is to eat two glazed donuts and have three cups of coffee, I can already guess what your health results are.
You are what you eat, food matters.
The most important morning habit by far for health and wellness is what you feed your body, the type of fuel you are putting into your system.
Would you let your car run for a whole month without any oil?
Well that’s exactly what you are doing if you aren’t fueling it with the right nutrition and nutrients to boost and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
Your body may be OVERLOADED with calories but STARVING for nutrients.
Let’s improve this and get you on the right track!

First Step: The Best Morning Drink To Burn Fat, Boost Metabolism And Alkalize Your Body
By far the best drink right after waking up is lemon water. Lemon water will immediately alkalize your body and provide it with nutrients and a high amount of Vitamin-C to boost your immune system.
If you want to lose weight and burn fat effectively throughout the day, drink 15-20 ounces of lemon water immediately after waking up. This should the the first thing you put into your body!
10 mins after waking up immediately drink lemon water and you will feel energized and fuel your body with an amazing source of nutrients and hydration.
So many illnesses and sicknesses in today’s society are warning signals from the body alerting of massive de-hydration. The body is 70% water, the most vital source of energy on Earth.
Diet sodas and pops are also a huge detriment for losing weight and burning fat as well. They only continue to perpetuate dehydration and in turn slow your bodies metabolism down and instead train your body to STORE fat.
If you are serious about improving your morning habits to improve your overall health and wellness, refrain from drinking ANYTHING but water for first 30-45 minutes after waking up.
This way your bodies digestive system has time to disperse the natural hydrating effects of the lemon water and give it a break from working hard to digest other unnatural food or drinks.
Simple Morning Routine To Lose Weight And Burn Fat
Beginning your morning with this simple morning routine is going to help you lose weight and more effectively all while helping you maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
- Like mentioned above, within 10 minutes of waking up in the morning drink 15-20 ounces of lemon water. Make this the FIRST thing that enters your body in the morning. This alone will help you feel much better throughout your day and hydrate your body properly in the morning.
- The first food you eat to be a meal replacement shake. The shakes we drink every morning are a FULL meal that supports all our health and wellness goals and fuel us with tons of energy in the morning, just when we need it. They contain 170-200 calories depending the extra fruit or add-ons you include, 17-21 grams of protein, 21 vitamins and minerals and all the nutrients you need from a full, healthy meal all in a simple shake form. It only takes 5 minutes to make and is the meal we choose to have each and every morning.
- After your meal replacement shake have an herbal tea concentrate. This is a tea in powder form that is a much better and healthier form of coffee. We drink a serving of herbal tea concentrate each and every day. It helps boost your metabolism (burns 100 calories each serving), provides essential anti-oxidants and provides health and natural energy. We also add one serving one serving of our herbal aloe concentrate to help increase our nutrient absorption and improve our digestive systems.
With a Shake & Tea w/ Aloe a healthy morning ritual is super easy and does not take but a few minutes out of your day to provide your body the right fuel and nutrients to help maintain your weight-loss goals and burn fat more effectively.
