Importance Of Your Morning Routine
Importance Of Your Morning Routine - Top Rated West Des Moines Chiropractor

Now in a great time to take back or reinvent your morning routine in West Des Moines!

Does your morning routine go something like this?

  • Alarm goes off.
  • Hit Snooze. Once. Twice. Three Times.
  • Drag yourself out of bed.
  • Jump in the shower before your kids get up.
  • Quickly throw breakfast on the table and scurry to get kids ready for school.
  • Maybe drink a lukewarm cup of coffee for breakfast.
  • Race through drop-offs and get yourself to work barely on time.

If this sounds like your routine, you are not alone.

This stress-filled morning fills your body with an early dose of stress the pushes your body into a neurological state of Fight or Flight. Most of us unfortunately spend the rest of the day in this state-of-mind. 

“Before you master your life, you must first master your day. Before you master your day, you must first master your morning. Before you master your morning, you must first master yourself. In order to make time for morning rituals, you must get up earlier.”

Dr. CJ Mertz

In order to master your morning, you must adopt these principles:

  • Create the time to take back your morning.
  • Wake-up earlier. This might also require you to go to bed earlier.
  • Start your day with some “you” time.
  • Create a daily, non-negotiable schedule that sets you up for success.

Getting into a new routine first starts with a compelling reason to get out of bed. Read, stretch, walk-the-dog, pray, workout, meditate, run, or journal. Keep it relaxed, inspiring and fulfilling. Enjoy something that you’ve been missing because you ‘don’t have the time’. 

Routines are the things that you have to do; rituals are the things that you get to do. A best practice for ensuring an enriching start to your day is to allow 20-30 minutes for yourself. Determine how long it takes for you to shower, dress and eat a nutritious breakfast and add this additional time for your morning rituals.

Set your alarm for a 15 minute earlier wake-up every three days for 21 days in a row. Repeat this until you have achieved your target time wake-up time! 

Every day you get to decide if you will start rushed, anxious and stressed or relaxed. Earlier mornings start the night before with earlier bedtimes. Get your 7+ hours, maximize your sleep cycles and design a morning that gets you up and at it before the alarm clock ever rings.

What does all this have to do with neurologically-based chiropractic care? The less stressed your body is, the better your body functions.
