Healthy Routines To Get Into : Improve Yourself

March 25, 2021

These routines don't need to be as rigid as getting to the gym every morning or only exercising on Monday and Thursday.

For those who are waking up early for work or school, these routines can include some activity before work or school in the morning and at night when it is too late for some of your favorite activities or nights out.

These routines can take a little bit of time, especially if you haven't done them for a while.

Remember that if you start at the beginning of the day then you will be more likely to continue doing them throughout the day.

These routines are designed to help your body achieve peak performance. As an athlete, I don't train every day and in fact, most of the time I don't even train more than once a week.

It is important that you consistently train your body to maximize your results. The more consistent you are, the more effective you can be.

The habits that you set for yourself will help you train the body to be the best it can be.

Some of these routines can also be adapted into a household routine to set some expectations for your loved ones.

These routines can also help you become a better friend to your friends.

What you do during the day and how you prepare your body for the day will directly affect your daily mood, how much you eat, and how much sleep you get at night.

Let's take a look at some of the daily routines that will help you achieve your goals and most importantly, how they can benefit you.

Meal prepping

Meal prepping can be a great habit to start to help prepare your body for the day, especially if you are trying to follow a vegan diet.

I can't stress enough that your body needs protein to recover after a workout.

Eating at least two ounces of protein within thirty minutes of exercise can help bring down the inflammation and help with muscle recovery.

Most people don't eat enough protein in their day and as we all know, muscles aren't made overnight.

The most effective way to help your body recover after a workout is to consume proteins.

Protein can be found in different forms, such as beans, eggs, nuts, and dairy. If you are a vegan, then eat a healthy dose of olive oil and sprinkle it over your food.

Add it to pasta or use it in place of butter in cooking.

If you are worried about having enough calories in your body, then try to consume about 1,600 calories in your body for the day, or 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight.

If you consume too many calories, you will gain weight and if you consume too few, your muscles can become weakened and can stop growing.

All calories count!

Exercise in the morning

This one is something that I have done a lot and have found really helps to increase my productivity in the morning and get my mind off of the stress that I feel from work and school.

I work out most mornings and then eat breakfast in the morning before I go to work. It is important to try to fit some exercise into your day when you can.

Some of the benefits of exercising in the morning are:

  • It helps to wake you up and get your body ready for the day. It can be a good time to meditate or simply find a reason to smile.
  • It decreases cortisol (the stress hormone) levels. This will also help you sleep better and improve your memory.
  • It increases circulation throughout the body.
  • It increases your mental health, as you will be more relaxed and ready to start your day.

Sleep

Many people struggle to get good sleep. The average person needs seven to nine hours of sleep a night.

When you go to bed, you should feel sleepy and tired.

But many people fail to fall asleep because they are worried about the things that are stressing them out during the day and the tasks that they still have to get done.

One way to help you relax and fall asleep quicker is to try and keep your mind busy.

Doing deep breathing or meditation can help calm your mind and help you relax enough to fall asleep.

Use meditation to improve your brain power

There are numerous meditation apps out there that can help you learn meditation.

The benefits of meditating are many, but I believe that the best way to improve your brainpower is to use meditation.

Meditation helps to relieve stress and helps you become more focused on what is important.

Most importantly, it helps you relax and stay more mentally active, which leads to better learning and memory.

When you meditate, your mind can become clear and in control of itself.

This also helps your learning and memory.
