07 May How’s Your Morning Prep?
Sometimes we dread mornings because there’s so much to do but so little time to do it in. Let’s take a new approach and try getting some of your morning responsibilities taken care of the night before. Pick out your outfit. Have your breakfast prepped- or have everything ready to cook it quickly. Pack up your prepped lunch in a cooler in the fridge so it’s ready and waiting. If you have kids, make sure their backpacks are loaded with homework and any other essentials for the day ahead.
It’s proven that light wakes up the brain. In fact, there are specific cells in our eyes whose function is to absorb light in order to set our circadian clock (which tells our bodies when to sleep and when to wake up). Exposing yourself to sunlight in the morning is also associated with a lower BMI That means that getting yourself outside for an early morning walk has extra weight loss benefits for you.
