It is advised to cultivate rituals instead of habits to make them a part of your lifestyle. Rituals have a sanctity associated with them where as habits are more enforced and, thus, easier to break. Morning Rituals have a great impact on how your day goes and how you feel.
Getting up in the morning is a chore for most of the people. Even half of those who are forced to get up early in the morning do it because they do not have a choice and spend their morning doing chores in an almost robotic way. Well, to be frank, most of us are living in the same manner as well. There is hardly any joy left in simple daily routines let alone setting morning rituals.
So, no matter what time you get up, having a good start to the day is absolutely essential. I tried out setting these morning rituals and they do help me wake up and set the tone for the day. May be you could give them a try and then decide whether they are your cup of tea or not. I still do not follow waking up in the morning religiously but when I do, I always find my day went better and I spent the day in a happier frame of mind.
3 Morning Rituals to a Great Day
Washing my Face, Brushing, Flossing and Oil Pulling
This is the first thing I do in the morning. Nothing wakes you up like a splash of water on the face in the morning. Brush and floss. A fresh breath always helps. And, if possible, try out oil pulling at least twice or thrice a week to reap its advantages. Along with all that, flash your teeth wide in the mirror and smile! You could try out affirmations for the day or for yourself.
