Healthy habits for colder mornings
Don't hit snooze -
As tempting as it may be, try to resist continuously hitting snooze on your alarm.
Let some light in -
Even if it's a weak, wintry light, letting a few rays into your room as soon as you get out of bed can be instantly refreshing.
You might not have the time or inclination for a full-on workout in the morning.
Enjoy your coffee -
If you usually have coffee first thing, cold and dark mornings are probably not the best time to cut it out.
Have a quick shower -
Allow time to savor a few minutes in a hot shower—it can be a real soul soother.
Sip lemon tea -
Before you reach for the caffeine, sip a mug of hot water with lemon. As well as providing a vitamin C boost.
Get a good breakfast -
You'll need to fuel your body to face the weather and fight off winter colds, so don't skip breakfast.
Get some musical motivation -
Tune your radio to your favorite music station and have it switched on as you go about your morning.
Be prepared for the weather -
If you've got kids to get ready, make sure you know where all the cold weather gear is.
Keep lip balm on hand -
Cold weather almost inevitably brings the dreaded chapped lips.
Drink herbal infusions throughout the morning - Once you've had your early morning caffeine boost, try to stick to hydrating herbal teas throughout the day.
Home office goals -
Sitting at a desk to work is likely to make you more productive, so make sure your home office area is warm
Get an early night -
Healthy mornings start the night before.
