Are you a cat? Do you stretch in bed before you get up in the morning?

We know that waking up fresh in the morning is the best way of achieving our goals.  We exercise, study, work, etc., much better in the morning than other times in the day. But many of us have a hard time getting up in the morning, and really don’t feel like achieving any our life goals.
Here are some tips on how we make (as the Swedish saying goes) “morning time gold worth”. Start with the night before, during the night, and as you wake up to make you mornings something to look forward to.

Night before

·          Avoid red wine and coffee.
    Coffee and red wine have been scientifically shown to disturb your
    sleep more than any other food. Try not to have them to close to your bedtime.
·          Don’t go to bed upset.
     If you have an argument with your partner, children or friend, try to solve it. If you can't talk to the person, write down what has upset you and leave that on the paper.
·          Do a short relaxing and stretching routine before bedtime.
·          Don’t eat dinner too close to bedtime.
·          Plan your breakfast

During the night

·          Sleep with the window open
·          Try to keep your environment quiet

In the morning

·          The ideal is to wake up before the alarm, but that can be hard
·          Take a few seconds to stretch and appreciate the coming day.
·          Have a hot cup of lemon water and do your exercises.
·          Rather rise earlier than start your day with stressing to get ready.

I practices most of these points myself and the great thing is that the more of them you put into place the better you will feel.

Yours in Health & Fitness,
