How To Start and End Your Day Right

Your day begins and ends in your bedroom. If you have resolutions for the year, the choices you make first thing in the morning and at the end of the night can affect if you succeed in these goals.

Trying to improve your ability to follow healthy routines in 2018? Start by making your bed every day!

Whether you are trying to make it a habit to go to the gym on a more consistent basis or you are trying to set aside time each week to clean, making your bed first thing every morning will get your mind on track to have a successful day. By starting off the day with one good habit, you will be more inclined to continue positive habits throughout your day.

Trying to cut down on screen time? Remove the television from the bedroom.

You may be cutting down on screen time in 2018 for a number of reasons, including reducing anxiety or improving sleep. It will be hard for you to put down the electronics if you end your days by watching TV in the bedroom. Start your screen time challenge by removing the television from the bedroom and using that time to read or stretch. If you are feeling really ambitious, put your phone in the living room or kitchen when you go to bed so you won’t be tempted to take a peek at your social media late at night. If you do this, don’t forget to purchase an alarm clock to get you up in the morning!

Trying to put your health first? Put a diffuser in your room.

If this is the year of taking care of your body and health, that can be a big undertaking. Your bedroom can have a major impact on your health as you spend so much time in it. Diffusing essential oils add humidity to the bedroom, helping relieve congestion. Try a Crane humidifier in your bedroom so you start and end your day taking care of your body.

Trying to improve mindfulness? Meditate when you wake up.

Right now you probably wake up and you turn to your phone to scroll through emails, social media and text messages. Try taking that time to meditate or stretch instead, and you may find your goal of improving mindfulness is exponentially easier to achieve. If you aren’t well-versed in meditation, start by focusing on deep breathing the first ten minutes or so after waking up. Work your way up to actually meditating during that morning time. It is not recommended to meditate right before bed, however, as your body may confuse that for sleep.

How are you planning on succeeding in your resolutions by changing your habits in the bedroom?
