Starting your day on a positive healthy note is essential for your balance and glow: physical, spiritual and mental. Here are three great tips how to do this.
Get Your Morning Routine Right
They say that the morning is wiser than the evening. This is certainly true especially when it comes to our eating habits. We tent to indulge a little bit more at dinner, while in the mornings we take wiser and healthier decisions.
A good way to start your morning on a healthy note is to take 2 spirulina tablets with a shot of your favorite powdered green detox supplement. Wheatgrass is a great choice (1 tsp. of wheatgrass powder dissolved into a full glass of water) as it boosts the detox process instantly. It is a powerful detoxifier, helping neutralize toxins and environmental pollutants in the body, especially in the liver and the blood flow. Wheatgrass also supplies the body with a balanced ratio of protein, including all the essential amino acids, Vitamin C, the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium.
The spirulina boosts not only your immune system, but also your digestion and helps the laxative process, which is one of the first signs that the detoxification has initiated. 10-15 min after you have taken the spirulina and the wheatgrass juice make yourself a cup of hot water with freshly sliced or squeezed half a lemon.
Once the laxative process has begun this powerful morning detox drink flushes out the unwanted materials and toxins from the body. It also stimulates the fat burning process and helps fight hunger cravings due to the fact that lemons are high in pectin fiber.
Drink your green smoothie
In 2HealthApp we can't stress enough on how important it is to drink your green smoothies. The morning is actually the best time to do this as your body is craving for something light, yet full of vitamins, fibre and powerful nutrients, that will revitalise and empower your body. The green smoothie is a mighty healthy fuel for your body as it is a great source of clean morning energy and at the same time when consuming it we are not shutting off the body’s cleansing mechanism and our energy is not directed to digestion, but to accumulating beauty energy. Green drinks are also the most powerful source of minerals and enzyme and an every day must-have if we want to maximize our intake of these essential elements.

Move That Body
Find something that you like doing that is physical and do it every morning, frequently and consistently. It could be 20 min of yoga before breakfast or a walk or a bike-ride to your office. It doesn’t really matter what it is as long as it makes you feel light and energised, and it gives you the amount of glowing positive energy that you need in order to go through the day as a winner.
A piece of advice: exercise not to lose weight, or sweat, or feel sexy, but to become happier and more balanced. Learn how to enjoy exercising for the sake of your new healthier and more joyful self, rather than for the sake of your skinnier body.
Meditation is appropriate in any time and any place, and it is always beneficial to your health. But introducing five minutes of meditation into your daily morning routine can really change your life. It will make you feel more almighty and prepared for embracing all kinds of challenges. Eventually you will be able to build your practice up to fifteen-twenty minutes a day or more. But even just a few minutes will open the door to creating a new healthy habit and all the proven powerful benefits it brings. Here are some of them:
Better Overall Health
Knowledge of Self
Relief from stress and anxiety
Decreased blood pressure and hypertension
Lower cholesterol levels
More efficient oxygen use by the body
Increased production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA
