The best way to begin the day is awaking after having slept 7 to 9 hours. I will discuss sleep in more detail in a later post, but for now it is important to know that a good night’s sleep is critical to your health and well being.
Once awake, you need to hydrate and stretch. I drink a cup of fruit tea while doing a series of flexibilities. The flexibilities keep my joints loose, get the blood flowing to my brain, and energize me. Click here to access the PDF of the Flexibilities so that you can begin doing them yourself.
Once stretched and hydrated, it is time for a healthy breakfast. A good breakfast makes for a good day. I suggest a two egg omelet (actual eggs, not egg whites) with tomato salsa. I also eat a bowl of blueberries (frozen, but thawed) and a half grapefruit (in season). Eggs provide high-quality protein and are good for the brain. Breakfast must include high-quality protein.
Well-rested, hydrated, stretched, and well-fed: this is the best way to begin the day.
