Schedule your morning routine with these simple habits to transform your life and make your body healthy:
Get up early
It is really important to take enough of sleep, but excessive sleep may lead to laziness. To get up early you have to make a routine of sleeping early at night so that you get enough of sleep.

2. Sip a glass full of water
Water is the key element of our survival but drinking water just after waking up is a bonus point. Most of us start our mornings with a fresh, hot cup of coffee or tea to give warmth to our bodies after getting up. If we drink water, most of us prefer it cold. But as per the evidence found in Ayurvedic texts, we have it all wrong. The habit of drinking warm and clean water regularly especially in the mornings can help our bodies to heal and power up our digestive system. Drinking warm water in the mornings also have some positive effects on your skin and hair.
Meditation calms your body and gives peace to your soul. Doing meditation can cure many of the diseases and help you to release your stress. It may take some time to master it, but once you start doing meditation, slowly you will notice the change in yourself. Making a routine to meditate at least for 5-10 minutes daily in the morning before any other work makes you feel fresh and helps you to prepare for the challenges ahead.
Exercise scientifically means any activity that takes your body from a state of rest to a state of motion. Exercise may be in any form, walking, running or cycling or playing sports. After waking up, it is really important to do some stretches to flex your muscles from a state of rest. Walking or jogging early in the morning may help you to connect with nature and fresh morning air can do wonders on your body. Either play some sports or hit the gym, it's your personal choice.
5. Have a healthy plate for breakfast
