5 Morning Routines to Kick off 2017 by Kori Zornes

What are your 5 must-do routines everyday?  Here are ours-

1. Lemon water

 This is one we have all heard before.  Some say warm water with lemon, some say cold water with lemon- what really matters is that you actually just do it!  Every morning, drink a large glass of water with the juice of half an organic lemon.  It will do wonders to the body when done consistently.  Lemon water helps flush the digestive system, clear mucus from the body, rehydrate, boosts the immune system, helps with weight loss, keeps the skin clear, and increases energy.  Need we say more?

2.  Green Juice before your coffee or tea

This one can take a little more effort to put into your routine, but trust us it is well worth it.  A green juice every morning is a life-changing life hack.  Coffee has stolen the spotlight as the first go-to, but what your body really need is to be filled with vitamins/minerals and most importantly be alkalized.  After your green juice, if you fill the need for another pick me up- try out a matcha latte, turmeric latte, or cold brew coffee with coconut oil and fresh almond milk. 

3. Move your body

If you don’t use it, you lose it.  Our bodies are perfectly built machines and we have to take care of them.  We need to stretch each and every part of our body to keep the full mobility that we are meant to have.  Stretch in bed, stretch on your mat, stretch on the floor- wherever you are, make it a must.  10 minutes to an hour, sometimes we have to be flexible with what our schedules allow.

4. Write your goals/to-do list for the day

Get out your favorite notebook/planner and make a list of what you need to accomplish for the day.  When we organize ourselves before the day starts, we are much more productive.  To take it a step further, write down something or someone you are grateful for! 

5. Take your supplements 

A couple key supplements can make a huge difference.  A must for us each morning is a great probiotic.  Along with that, with that we take – omegas, B vitamin, Vitamin C, and others depending on the day and time of year!  We can get a lot of our vitamins/minerals from eating great quality whole foods, but supplementing can always add a little more spark to your step.  On top of the supplements, try adding in some great herbs.  Experiment with reishi, cacao, maca, ashwagandha, and spirulina.  These blend great into smoothies!  We love our herbs.
