Waking up early to enjoy the sunrise and getting in touch with nature can be a great way to start your day. Enjoy outside in your backyard, or take a walk around the block. Listen to the birds singing and breathe in the fresh air. All these little things can help clear your head and prepare you for the day ahead.

The benefits of nature focussed morning routine 

There are many benefits to having a nature focussed morning routine. Some of these benefits include:

  1. You will feel more energized and awake after spending time in nature.
  2. The fresh air will help to clear your head and improve your focus.
  3. Being in nature can help to reduce stress and anxiety levels.

Tips for creating your new routine

  1. Rise with the sun or as close to it as possible. Sunlight helps to reset your body's natural circadian rhythm and can help improve your mood and energy levels for the day ahead.
  2. Spend some time outside, even if it's just a few minutes. Connecting with nature has been shown to reduce stress levels, improve focus and concentration, and boost overall well-being.
  3. Eat breakfast outside if you can, or at least make sure you sit in a place with plenty of natural light to have your breakfast. This will improve your digestion and give you a more productive day.
  4. Incorporate some plant-based foods into your breakfast routine. Adding fresh fruits or vegetables and nuts or seeds into your morning meal will give you sustained energy throughout the day while providing essential vitamins and minerals.
  5. Make time for mindfulness practice, such as meditation or yoga. Taking just a few moments to focus on your breath and be present at the moment can help reduce stress and anxiety.
