Many of us reach out for a cup of tea or coffee first thing in the morning. Ditch the habit and switch to plain warm or lemon water instead. You will eventually feel and look better. The milk and caffeine in your tea or coffee can also add on to your calories.
4. Visualize the Day Ahead
A simple, yet extremely powerful, exercise to practice in the morning is to shut your eyes and visualize how you want the day to unfold. This will give you direction as you go about your day and help you to avoid getting distracted with “urgent” but unimportant tasks.
5. Eat a Nutritious Breakfast
A nutritious and balanced breakfast is essential if you want to fire up your metabolism and keep yourself powered up throughout your day.
“Simple carbs release sugar in the body at a faster rate than complex carbs, fats, and protein, and give the body an immediate “up” feeling. But it is short-lived, and if you are in the habit of a high carb breakfast you are constantly fighting a battle for energy during the day.”
So forget the carbs and instead eat whole-grain cereal, eggs, fresh fruit or a even a health shake for breakfast.
6. Pack healthy snacks:
If you are having a light breakfast, you are most likely to get hungry before lunch. So, before you rush out to work, pack some healthy snacks like nuts and seeds or whole fruits that you can munch on in between your meals or whenever you are hungry. Carrying healthy snacks to work regularly will help you because you will not binge on junk like crisps, biscuits, or bars that are very high on calories.
