If you’re anything like us, mornings can be chaotic. We wake up and our inbox is flooded, we can’t decide what to wear, can’t find our keys and we can totally forget about that morning jog now. Mornings tend to be difficult to maneuver for most of us. Sometimes we feel like we just can’t get everything done before we walk out that door. This morning chaos sets a frenetic rhythm and can affect how we feel the rest of the day.
What the Stress Response Does to Your Body
When the sympathetic nervous system is on high alert, it is known as the stress response. It causes your body to react accordingly by causing your muscles to tense, your heart to beat faster, and your body to be filled with adrenaline. This response occurs whenever a person feels fearful or excited.
Reduce Feelings of Fearfulness by Being Prepared for the Day
If you tend to have issues getting around in the morning, there are things you can do to make things easier and less stressful for yourself. In fact, you may find that changing your routine slightly has notable positive effects on your life. You may ease into your mornings rather than rush into them at top speeds.
Here are four time-saving tips that help you slay your morning routine:
1. Get ready the night before. As you’re getting ready for bed, select the clothes you want to wear the next day. Lay them out so you’re able to put them on easily. Gather all the things you need to use to get ready such as toiletries, cosmetics, hair products, and shaving supplies in the bathroom before calling it a night. That way, everything is where you need it to be without searching for it.
2. Have your Smart Pressed Juice ready to take with you. Portable and easy to prepare by adding water, our Vegan Vanilla Proteini, Organic Pressed Greens, and Pineapple Chia Cleanse is exactly what is needed to reboot your body and give you the energy needed to power through your day. The Complete Reboot- 7 Day Juice Cleanse gives you the phytonutrients, protein, and fiber needed to feel your very best. Stick a few packets in your bag with a refillable water bottle so you’re able to have healthy juices wherever you go.
3. Find ways to do two tasks at once. Brush your teeth in the shower. Invest in shampoo that doubles as a body wash. Use a curling iron with a hair dryer built into it. Work on getting some extra steps in while waiting for the rest of your family to get ready to walk out the door. If you can’t walk from one room to the next with ease, walk in place.
4. Refrain from reading emails first thing in the morning. Instead, listen to them while you commute. Choose an app that reads email such as Speaking Email which can be used on iPhones and Android phones. You’ll save yourself time by doing this in place of listening to the radio while you drive.
Keeping the stress response low while preparing to greet the day is imperative. Adrenaline can cause you to react in ways that you wouldn’t ordinarily because you feel fearful that something will go wrong. Take a few minutes the night before to prepare for the morning and do what you can to simplify tasks such as preparing meals. Keep yourself fueled by having your Smart Pressed Juice first thing in the morning helps keep you calm and properly nourished at all times helps when you’re rushed for time. And most importantly, take a deep breath, take a few moments for yourself and have a great day out there!
