Since childhood we’ve all heard aphorisms and proverbs about starting the day off right. Breakfast, we were told, is “the most important meal of the day.” But what scientific proof do we have regarding healthy morning habits? What morning routines can we fit into our modern work-a-day lives in order to make us happier?
You’ve been in bed for hours, essentially fasting. Your body needs to be hydrated to feel better and start the day off right. In fact most any morning drink will help to serve your body’s requirements for hydration, including coffee, tea or juice.
A short morning exercise routine can make you happier. According to the UK’s Mental Health Foundation, exercise causes the brain to release chemicals that induce good feelings. Exercising regularly also boosts self-esteem and concentration.
Vitamin B9, also known as folate or folic acid, is essential for producing healthy red blood cells, preventing anaemia and synthesising and repairing DNA. Low B9 and B12 levels have also been linked to depression (J Psychopharmacol, Jan 2005). According to the Harvard University School of Public Health, the best way to get enough folate is through food intake and a daily multivitamin. Breakfast foods like oranges, fortified cereals, papaya and cantaloupe are good sources of B9.
Harvard University’s Home Ecology of Flowers study found that fresh flowers increased feelings of kindness, decreased anxiety and depression, and boosted happiness, energy and enthusiasm. Research at the Mayo Clinic also showed that the scent of citrus fruits reduced stress and anxiety.
A few minutes of meditation in the morning can produce effects that last throughout the day. Benefits of meditating include improved mood, increased energy, and physical and mental calm.
