Whether you’re an early riser or a natural night owl, everyone can do with supercharging their mornings to help them start the day right. The way you spend the first few moments upon waking can determine how the rest of your day goes, so waking up stressed and tired will almost definitely start you off on the wrong foot. Here are a few top tips to help bring positivity and energy to your mornings, and help you stay productive throughout the day.
Give Your Mornings a Nutrient-Rich Boost
Although some supplements are best taken before or after certain activities, such as pre-workout and supplements that help you sleep, many other vitamins and supplements are proven to be more effective when taken earlier on in the day. Research shows that digestion is slower as you sleep, which is why taking your usual vitamins and supplements first thing in the morning is better than late at night. With a more efficient level of absorption, you will benefit more from your everyday supplements. In particular, all B vitamins and multivitamins in general work best when added to your morning routine. Taking zinc and vitamins E and C in the early hours can give your energy levels a real boost, and they are great for your skin too.
Clear Your Mind for the Day Ahead
CBD gummies are another food supplement that many claim can work wonders when taken in the morning. These edibles are one of the easiest ways to take CBD as they come in pleasant flavors and are pre-measured for convenience. Rather than fiddling with a dropper when you first wake up, you can simply pop a gummy in your mouth and you’re ready to begin your day. Some people enjoy taking this supplement first thing. There are claims that CBD can help people focus by clearing the mind of negative thoughts. Since CBD became legal in 2018, there has been an array of CBD gummies for sale in the UK. This means that you can choose from a huge selection of sizes, strengths, flavors and colors. It is still a good idea to do your research to ensure you purchase a high-quality product.
Soak up Some Sunshine
In recent years, sunshine has been getting a bad rap in the health and wellness industry. Although excessive sun exposure can lead to sunburn, sun spots, and serious health issues such as skin cancer, a bit of sunshine in the right doses can actually do you a world of good. Daylight exposure is great for elevating your mood, improving sleep quality, boosting cognition, and it can even enhance bone and eye health. Just make sure you cover up when the sun is at the highest and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes. As you probably already know, you should always apply some sunscreen if you expect to be out in the sun for a long time, and a hat to protect the top of your head from burning.
