3 Healthy Morning Routine Ideas From Thrive Members

Many people find that having a set morning routine helps them start the day off right. A morning ritual can maximize positivity, balance out your circadian rhythm and build long-lasting healthy habits that improve other aspects of your work and life, too. When it comes to creating a morning routine, it’s all about finding easy activities that inspire you personally and professionally. Here are four ideas from our very own Thrive members!

Just Get Things Started – Chelsi Jo Moore, Entrepreneur & Designer

“My morning routine is my life-line because it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Number-one is getting up as soon as my alarm goes off. That’s right—no snooze button on my side of the bed. Not only does this give me those extra 15 to 30 minutes back, but I also empower myself to do hard things all day long because I’ve already done one of them right off the bat. Following that, I do a written devotional with hot herbal tea while I wait for the sun to come up. Once that sun is up, my curtains are drawn back and I get dressed and ready for the day, and then take a quick look at the day’s events before I’m off to the races.”

Do A Bedside Exercise – Joyce Brinton, Coach & Energy Light Worker

When you first wake-up in the morning, sit at the side of your bed and go through this simple exercise to slowly bring movement and awakening into your body:

  1. Roll your eyes to the left for the count of 12, then to the right for the count of 12
  2. Move your neck back and forth in a “yes” motion to the count of 12, then back and forth in a “no” motion to the count of 12
  3. Roll your arms forward to the count of 12, then backward to the count of 12
  4. Twist at the waist for a count of 12
  5. Reach up with arms right and left 12 times on each side
  6. Reach side to side 12 times at each side
  7. Reach for your toes right and left each side 12 times
  8. Move your hips like a hula-hoop 12 times to the left and 12 times to the right
  9. Circle your knees 12 times to the right and then 12 times to the left
  10. Move your right foot up and down 12 times, circle to the right and left each 12 times, then do the same on the left foot

Settle In For A Meditation – Joyce Brinton

“Sit in a comfortable meditation position with your spine straight, legs crossed and, if you can, with your hands open in your lap. Breathe in to the count of six, hold to the count of three. Breathe out to the count of six, hold to the count of three. You can have soft music playing if you want and do this for at least two minutes or as long as you like.”
