15-MINUTE RITUAL TO KICK START YOUR MORNINGS
Some brush for short periods of time, while others prefer to stretch their morning ritual to a long-drawn one. Experts say that you need to brush your teeth for exactly two minutes -anything more could damage the enamel and anything less would not kill the bacteria.
2 MINUTES: QUICK STRETCHES
Two minutes of basic stretches for your hands and feet should help awaken you and give you a boost of energy in the morning.
2 MINUTES: MAKE A MENTAL TO-DO LIST
Listing out what your tasks for the day are, can help you get organised and also give you a head start to your day, by giving you an idea of what needs to be accomplished. If you can write this down, nothing like it. Else making a mental list it self should suffice.[ad name=”HTML-1″]
1 MINUTE: DEEP BREATHING
Sit in a comfortable position on the bed, on the floor or even on a chair and practice deep breathing for a minute. If not, focus on your breathing for a minute. This will help you concentrate and give you more clarity in thought.
6 MINUTES: MINI MEDITATION
A six-minute meditation ritual can boost your mind in the morning and help you get a calm start to your day. Make sure you do it early in the morning and in a calm environment.
1 MINUTE: SMALL PRAYER
You may do an elaborate pooja (prayer) late in the morning. But, just try doing a small prayer in the morning for a positive start to the day. You may have an important meeting or your kid may have a crucial class test -so, just pray for that day to start on a good note.[ad name=”HTML-1″]
1 MINUTE OF GRATITUDE
This last one minute will change your approach for the day . Just feel grateful for all the good things that you have got in life. While we complain most of the time for the things we don’t have, it’s time to be thankful for what you do have. It can be your car, two-wheeler, recent holiday, your child’s smile, great food, and lovely people -just about anything. Silently be grateful for those beautiful things in your heart for a minute, and start your day feeling energised.
