Our daily routines are often busy and hectic. Finding the balance between our professional and personal lives is an art. But if we look at the energy of our day, there are adjustments we can make to improve our day.
It all begins with how we start our day — the mornings! A positive and productive morning sets the mood for the day so it’s really important to get it right. Real Mom, Dani Duque shares how she jumpstarts her mornings in the video below.
Below are some more tips to start your mornings on the right foot.

We’ve all been guilty of hitting the snooze button more than once. What we don't know is that one of the secrets to a successful day is getting up at the sound of the first alarm. This allows you to start the day without rushing and take your time to have a good breakfast, drink your coffee calmly, and avoid running at the last minute.
Also, think carefully about the sound you choose for your alarm. Avoid loud sounds to start the day gently.
Nothing beats starting your day with a self-care routine - your body and mind will thank you! Take a few moments to drink water and cleanse your body of toxins and impurities. This is a great way to activate your digestive system and start your routine.
Jump in the shower and let the water wake you up and revitalize you. Use your favorite creams and stimulate your mind, giving it a sense of tranquility to start the day.
Before connecting to the world, take care of yourself first. Avoiding looking at our cell phone or turning on the TV when we wake up helps us to focus a little more on ourselves and prepare physically and mentally to face the day.
Checking our social networks when we wake up can affect us emotionally and ultimately change our mood. It's best to hold off connecting to the world at least an hour after waking up.
It is essential to do some stretching in the morning after spending the whole night in a horizontal position. This also helps prevent future back and neck pain.
Breathing exercises help for better relaxation. They increase the oxygenation of our blood and the elasticity in our lungs and thorax.
