We all have more to do than we seem to have time for. But getting off to a good start each morning is crucial to our health and productivity. The following are four parts of a morning routine you can’t afford to skip.

Since our bodies are made of about 70% water it stands to reason that drinking water almost anytime is good for us. But drinking water in the morning, particularly warm water, is especially healthy. Drinking two glasses of water in the morning can boost metabolism throughout the day. It’s also thought to jump start our major organs, getting them to work more efficiently after our bodies have been asleep all night.

2         Stretch

Even doing just five minutes of simple stretches each morning can provide numerous benefits. Stretching gets the blooding flowing throughout the body, including the brain. This may help you wake up faster and not feel so sluggish. This increased blood flow will help improve concentration. Stretches will also increase your energy and improve posture.

3         Brush and Floss

Some people may question why brushing and flossing in the morning is necessary since they haven’t eaten since brushing their teeth the night before. It is, however, important to brush teeth after sleeping, especially after sleeping for several hours. During the day, when we’re eating, talking, and just moving around, our saliva production is helping to keep teeth clean and excessive bacteria from forming. The lack of movement in the mouth and decreased saliva gives bacteria and decay a chance to build, making morning brushing essential.

4         Make a Plan

It’s not always a good idea to get out of bed and hit the ground running. Whether it’s prayer, meditation, or simply making a list of goals for the day, take time to calmly get organized and plan your day. You’ll accomplish a lot more if you have an organized plan of action than if you just haphazardly attack problems as they come your way. Even making a simple list of what needs to be done during the day can go a long way to alleviating stress.


These are all simple, but highly effective parts of a routine that will help improve overall health. Most people already do at least one of these. Incorporating them all will get you off to a great start each morning.
