Useful practices to begin and end the day

Useful practices to begin and end the day
There are many things you can do to improve your daily energy, mood and sleep quality.

Here are few of our favorites that can make a big difference in your health:

TO BEGIN THE DAY:

Tongue scrape: Removing toxins built up in our mouths overnight should be priority #1. Using a tongue scraper is a non-negotiable for us.

Hydrate: After tongue scraping, drink 0.5-1 liter of filtered water. You can add a pinch of sea salt and the juice of half a lemon to help get hydration into your cells and help detoxify the liver and kidneys. 

Have breakfast: Prioritize building a meal with a source of quality fat, protein and carbohydrates (fruits/veg) to help balance your blood sugar and keep you feeling full longer. If you have caffeine in the morning, have it after eating breakfast. 

Move: Get some sort of movement in (a brisk walk, yoga, pilates, jumping jacks, etc.) to get your blood pumping which will energize you. Even just 5-10 minutes can make a big difference in your mood. 

TO END THE DAY:

Move after dinner: Movement after meals helps to regulate blood sugar and decrease overall stress on the body- even just a 10 minute walk. 

Dim the lights: Darker lighting tells the body it's time to start winding down. Have dinner by candle light or do some bedtime stretches. 

Read before bed: Instead of watching something, pick up something to read. Decreasing your screen time can greatly influence your quality of sleep. 

Epsom salt baths: Soaking in pure magnesium sulfate helps to relax your muscles and gives your mind a moment to slow down. You can take a magnesium glycinate supplement after an epsom salt bath or if you don't have a bathtub to help ease anxiety and relax your body. 

Deep breathing: Take 10 deep breaths as you lay down to sleep. Deep breathing helps stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system response to signal your body that you're safe and the day is done. 

Start small by adding in one practice from each list to improve your daily and nightly routine. 

Have a great day!
