Start your mornings off right with some habits that will give you a boost in energy and spirit and help you to drop some pounds.

1. Stretch your body to release your muscles and loosen up your joints. Stretching helps to get the blood flowing so more oxygen can travel through your body. This activity can improve cellular function and help you to burn some calories.

2. Go for a jog to get your heart rate and metabolism up. You’ll enjoy the boost of energy and mental clarity you gain.

3. Drink water to give your body the fluids it needs. Sleep is when your body heals and restore itself. It uses what is already present in the body to do so. When you wake up in the morning, drinking a glass or two of water can help to fight off nighttime dehydration and keep you from retaining water and fat.

4. Hit the snooze button to get more sleep. If you wake up feeling as tired as you were when you went to bed last night, you may need more sleep. Don’t be afraid to hit the snooze button on your alarm clock. Besides giving you the opportunity to get more rest, it also makes it easier for you to avoid unhealthy food cravings.

Rejuvenate wants you to remember that the way you start your mornings can really set the tone for the rest of your day. The right habits can boost your mood, health and weight loss results.
