Good morning! You start a new day. You wake up. It’s the right time to start off with energy. If you wake up late, there probably won’t be time for breakfast; you’ll just take a cup of coffee and rush to work or school. Suddenly, the first challenge comes up… will you have enough energy to overcome it successfully?
MiDieta™ brings 4 strategies to help you deal with your everyday challenges with success:
1. Eat breakfast. This is the first meal of the day, and it will provide you with energy to start off your day. Additionally, being in the habit of eating breakfast every day will help you manage your weight. When you eat breakfast, you give your brain the energy it needs to reach your daily goals.
Your brain can’t store energy, so you need to replenish it every day with a complete breakfast. This will help you improve your ability to concentrate and solve problems at work, without feeling exhausted, irritated, or extremely tired; situations often experienced by those who skip breakfast.
For a perfect breakfast, be sure to include the major nutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fats.
2. Rest. Getting a good night’s sleep is a basic ingredient to building the energy you need for a successful day. Adults should sleep 6 to 8 straight hours a day. By doing so, your body can recover the energy you’ve used during the day. Getting a good nights’ rest will also reduce stress, control anxiety, and it may even help you control your weight.
3. Exercise. Exercising is an excellent way to start your day with energy. Several studies have shown that physical activity helps you relax, reduce physical and emotional stress while clearing your mind. Exercising in the morning, helps you start your day with a clear mind and better organize your day.
When you exercise, your body releases a type of hormones called endorphins. These hormones elevate your mood and produce a feeling of euphoria.
For some people, physical activity at night provides too much energy and causes them to have trouble sleeping, for others exercising at night helps them sleep better. We recommend that you find out how your body reacts to exercise so you can decide which time of the day is best for you.
4. Keep a positive attitude. Having a positive attitude when you wake up every morning helps your days run smoother and be less stressing. Your mind has an amazing ability to control your life. When you have a negative attitude, your days may seem slow, and you may end up with stress or in a bad mood. But, if as soon as you wake up you focus on how great your day will be, and you have a positive attitude about getting up to exercise and stay energized, everything will simply walk on wheels and nothing will get in the way.
A positive mind is essential for motivation, high levels of energy and the right frame of mind to make your day a perfect day.
Now is the right time to start your day with energy using these 4 strategies to reach that goal.
