15 Fit Girls Morning Rituals – Healthy Habits That Changed My Life

6. Start Your Day With Cocoa Seeds

Most mornings, I wake up not feeling the need to eat my breakfast right away.

Since it’s really important to fuel up the body with some nutrients after you wake up, I usually take a few raw cocoa seeds.

They are a bit bitter, but they do amazing things to your body.

Starting from calcium, magnesium and iron, cocoa seeds are loaded with healthful compounds that keep our cardiovascular health, load us up with energy, promote weight loss and improve our health overall.

 

Cocoa seeds are also considered to be nature’s anti-depressant, since they contain dopamine, phenylethylamine and serotonin, all of which are used to promote positive mental health and better moods.

So if you can’t stand the bitter flavor they have, you can mix them in a smoothie.

7. Earn A Shower

I always sneak in an A.M. sweat in my morning routine.

A 20-30 minute cardio workout such as rope skipping, a short run, jog or at least a full yoga session, will have many benefits for your body and mind especially if it’s done on an empty stomach.

An empty stomach triggers a cascade of hormonal changes throughout the body that are conducive to both building muscle and burning fat.” – Nick English

You’ll feel lighter, fresher, more energized and on top of that you’re going to maximize the calorie burning, fasten up your weight loss process and tone up your body.

It will leave you feeling so good after you finish, that you’ll want to keep that ritual every single morning for the rest of your life.

8. Hike

I love to hike on weekend mornings.

I may not have the time to do it through the week, but when Saturday comes the mountains are calling me and I must go!

I’m not going to go on and on about the benefits of hiking, since I can go on and on for pages, so I’m just going to tell you to try replacing your morning sweat off with a hike at least once a week and feel the benefits yourself.

They say: “It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves!” …and that couldn’t be said any better.

Hiking with my loved one is a self-inspiring adventure that fills my soul and keeps me full until the next date with nature.

You have to try it!

 

9. Go Nuts For Breakfast

It’s not that important if you have your breakfast right after you wake up, as it is to actually make the most out of it.

What you have for breakfast is really important, since that usually determines what you’ll eat the rest of your day, so you have to make sure that every breakfast counts.

And one way to make sure that your breakfast counts is to go with raw food.

Including foods like nuts and seeds in your diet, that are unprocessed in their native Paleo form, are actually the best choice for breakfast.

You’ll load yourself with fibers, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and loads of other nutrients, while keeping yourself full to the next meal.

  • 1 bowl of low fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon minced flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • a handful of almonds or cashews

 

If I feel really hungry, I make myself avocado crackers:

  • 2 soft boiled eggs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 avocado
  • no flour protein bread or seed crackers

I love adding avocados and cottage cheese on top of a slice of my favorite no flour protein bread, or seed crackers that I make myself at home.

And most important of all, I eat my eggs soft boiled – I like them better that way πŸ™‚

And of course, there are mornings when I don’t feel like eating a breakfast, so I like to start with a smoothie.

My favorite blend is:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 green apple
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 2 cocoa seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water

I occasionally make a raspberry smoothie with flax seeds and almond milk, since it’s my second favorite blend full of fibers! πŸ™‚

10. Enjoy A Mug Full Of Caffeine

I can’t imagine my day without my morning coffee – my eye opening pleasure that comes from a simple bean.

I like it black and strong, and I really admire its power to wake every single sense in my body at the moment I feel its smell.

Drinking a lot of coffee can be harmful, but by enjoying that one morning mug of caffeine you intake loads of healthy components, since coffee contains several important nutrients, including Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Manganese, Potassium, Magnesium and Niacin.

It improves your energy levels, boosts the metabolic rate, improves physical performance, protects your heart and liver…

These are only a few of the countless benefits you get from including coffee on a daily basis.

Instead of coffee, you can make yourself a cup of green tea too, since it’s also high in caffeine – combining it with a few drops of fresh lemon, you’re not only giving yourself more energized morning, but you burn a few more calories when doing it.

Just remember to never add sugar in your morning mugs – keep it clean at least in the beginning of the day.
