This week, for Wellness Wednesday, I am making one more small change to better my health. Last week, I started switching 1 non-water drink for water... Mainly, I've been switching my 2nd cup of coffee for water. I already drink a lot of water, but there were days, where I was slacking. I have found that making this change, I feel more hydrated and energized throughout the day.
This Wednesday, I decided to wake-up 10 minutes earlier, so I can have a moment to meditate, stretch, and get ready to start my day on a positive note before I have to wake the tired, whining kids. That being said, because I love to sleep, I am going to get my butt in bed at least 10 minutes earlier at night. I might not fall asleep right away, but taking an extra 10 minutes to rest, will help in my overall energy levels in the morning and throughout the day. During both 10 minute segments (am & pm), I am going to keep the TV and phone off, and let my mind and soul be still. This morning's 10 minutes, my first try, I did not hit snooze and I up right away, stretched out my back and legs, drank some water, sat in lotus pose while I thanked God for waking me up this morning... And then I had to pee. After that, I got dressed, in peace, I thought about what I have to do today, without the tired little monsters... It was refreshing. I hope I can keep this up, like last week's water substitution. Now, I must "hit the hay", so I can attempt my new routine tomorrow. Try my Wednesday wellness tip, and share how it's helping your health. Good Night!
