When things aren’t quite going the way that you’d hoped, it can be really difficult to meet the challenges of your day with a calm smile. For some this can be even more difficult if they were raised in a household where there was a lot of focus on negative talk, attitudes and ideas. Stress and overwhelm can not only negatively affect your day, but also your overall immune system and gut health. I struggled with depression, anxiety, and negative thinking for years before I realized the negative affect they had on my own health. It's all connected. 90% of serotonin (the feel-good hormone) is produced in the gut. There are numerous studies on the effects of stress on the body. If you’re looking to make a change to your mindset and your overall gut health, then you’ll probably be excited to read the following article on how to have a positive morning routine.
Shift Your Mindset
When you first open your eyes, it can be tough to get out of bed to go to a place that you’re not the biggest fan of, but a lot of that can be changed by adjusting the things that you’re focusing on. By making a shift in your mindset, you job can become a means of providing for your life and family instead of an oppressive force. Take the time to look at what you’re creating or sustaining by getting up, and it’ll get easier with practice.
Be happy to be awake, happy to be alive. Shift your mindset to being positive about the morning and the day ahead.
Express Gratitude Whenever You Can
Another important part of alleviating stress and improving your gut is the habit off expressing gratitude. Giving thanks, and really focusing on how grateful you are to be in a place when you are physically able to go to work can help you to keep things in perspective. Even just the simple act of being thankful can give you a more positive feeling during the times you’re thinking about them.
Set Your Intentions
Have you noticed that when you don’t have a focused plan it can be really hard to get things organized? Taking the time to set your intentions helps you to give a priority and order to the things that you have to consider for the day. Instead of completely random selections, you can make an organized, cohesive plan that will put you on the right path and keep you there.
Nourish Your Gut
Without the proper nutrition, there can be no healthy mind. It’s very important that you always make sure that you have enough time to get some kind of nourishment before you begin your day. Adding a probiotic or probiotic food or drink is a bigger plus and will help feed the gut bacteria that can help balance hormones, make serotonin, and control weight. That will help you to keep your focus and stay at an efficient energy level. When people get tired, they often turn to artificially enhanced drinks that aren’t very good for your health and heart. At the very least, you can be sure to get u early enough to blend some frozen fruit so you can simply drink your breakfast on the way to work.
