Our morning routine proceeds in almost exactly the same way for the vast majority of us. But few would have guessed that all you need to do is add a few simple yet highly effective activities, and the start of your day will be that much easier.
We picked five useful morning rituals that we hear about often but never try.
Best Morning Habits To Adopt
5. Massage Your Ears
Massaging your ears can help you wake up fully. This can be done early in the morning, while you are still lying in bed.
Applying stimulation to the sensitive parts of the ear can have a positive effect on how energetic and lively you feel.
4. Drink A Glass Of Warm Lemon Water
There are many reasons why you should swap your coffee early in the morning for a glass of warm water.
It will improve the functioning of the digestive system, kidneys, and intestines; can help flush toxins from your body; can strengthen your immunity – the benefits are obvious.
However, it is not necessary to squeeze the juice of a whole lemon into a glass, a quarter is enough.
If you decide to drink this, it is a good idea to wait 20-30 minutes before breakfast.
3. Clean Your Tongue
We all know that you should clean your teeth twice a day. But you should not stop there: a lot of bacteria also accumulate on your tongue and this is what can cause bad breath and lead to dental plaque, cavities, and gum problems.
To clean your tongue, all you need is a normal toothbrush. Be careful not to wipe too hard, otherwise, you may damage the surface of the tongue.
2. Eat A Tablespoon Of Honey
Honey fills you with energy, boosts your memory and productivity, heals a cough, and relieves allergy symptoms.
For these reasons and more, starting your day with a teaspoon of honey is definitely a good idea.
Ideally, it should be fresh and natural honey, and you should consume it 10-15 minutes before breakfast.
If it is too sugary for you, you can dissolve it in a glass of water; the effect will be the same.
1. Wash Your Mouth Out With Hydrogen Peroxide Solution
You can end your morning routine by washing your mouth with a hydrogen peroxide solution.
There is nothing dangerous about it, as long as you keep the correct ratio: 5-7 drops of a 3% solution per 50 ml of water.
Also, be sure to add the solution to the water and not the other way around.
This procedure can help whiten your teeth, remove bad breath, and heal and protect your gums.
