1. Arise Around Dawn
The best way to start your day is by waking up when the dawn breaks out. This is the time of the day the vata period comes to an end, thus filling you with newfound energy and strength.
2. Drink Hot Water And Evacuate Bladder Bowels
Consuming hot water the first thing in the morning is considered extremely healthy according to Ayurveda. The warm water will help eliminate the toxins from your system with ease and keeps digestive issues at bay. It is also known to strengthen your gastrointestinal tract and aid faster weight loss.
3. Clean Teeth Scrape Tongue
The next most important thing to do is clean your teeth and scrape your tongue; this will eliminate the bacteria from your mouth, stimulate taste buds, helps remove the coating from the tongue that causes stinky breath, stimulates internal organs, and promotes digestive health.
Give yourself an oil massage to improve your blood circulation. The massage will gently stimulate your nervous system, making you feel physically and mentally invigorated. You can keep rotating different essential oils to enhance the effect of the massages.This will fill you with energy, prepping you for the long day ahead.
Once you are done with a relaxing oil massage, the next thing on your checklist is exercising. Go for a light jog, or a session on the treadmill to get your juices flowing.
6. Warm Or Cool Shower
Wash off all your morning laziness with the help of a cold or warm shower, based on what you prefer. There is nothing like a morning shower to help you kick-start your day.
7. Sun Salute Yoga Asanas
Practicing sun salutation or ‘surya namaskar’ will help improve your blood circulation, keeps your muscles strong, prevents wrinkling of skin, and aids weight loss. Practicing other yoga asanas will also help relax your mind and body.
8. Pranayama Breathing Exercise
Practicing pranayama regularly is supposed to clear 72,000 channels in your body. Additionally, it helps purify your blood and enhance the respiratory system. Making this breathing exercise a habit is guaranteed to fill you with peace of mind and blissfulness.
It is necessary that you make time every morning for meditation. Meditating in the morning will help clear your mind of unwanted thoughts and help improve focus and concentration.

Choose to start off your midday routine with a deliciously healthy diet. Make sure you include lots of vegetables in it—and don’t forget to keep yourself hydrated.
12. Short Walk
Go for a brisk walk once you are done with your super-healthy lunch. This will make sure your digestion is smooth and that you don’t feel drowsy right after your meal. It’s always a good idea to take a short walk after each meal.
