The way I start my day is immensely important. If we wake up in a stressful state, then it is most likely that it will be for the whole day. If we start the day healthy and relaxed, it should continue throughout the day.
1. Don’t miss out breakfast
Breakfast should be a fundamental part of your morning routine. It should account for a quarter of your daily energy intake and you should eat the best one within an hour after awakening.
When we wake up in the morning, many of us have not eaten for over 12 hours. This means that our blood sugar and energy levels are low. The body then runs on reserves in the morning and slows down our metabolism.
If you don´t have time in the morning, prepare your breakfast in the evening or take a recipe that is fast and easy to prepare.
