1// Start your day with 3 things you are grateful for.
When you wake up in the morning it can be so easy to cringe at the sound of your alarm, get cranky about having to go to work, and feel overwhelmed by your to-do list. When you wake up in the morning either write or mentally take note of three things that you are grateful for. If we focus on the positive right when we wake up, we set the tone for the rest of the day. Write it or say it out loud, a perfect reminder for the day ahead.
2// Drink a glass of water right when you wake up.
Whether you are sleeping 6 hours a night or 8, it is the longest stretch of time your body goes without water, which can cause dehydration. I know it can be tempting to go strait to the coffee, but start with a full glass of room temperature water to improve your hydration and get your body going for the day, then guzzle down those cups of coffee. Drinking water can also help improve digestion, skin health and over all well-being!
3// Take a probiotic.
So what is a probiotic? Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes disease, but your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad, and probiotics are the good guys and help support digestive health. So if we already have good bacteria in us, why take a supplement? Because, no matter how smart your food choices are, modern life can still be tough on the gut so you’ll likely want to give your gut and immune system the extra boost it needs by supplementing with a probiotic.
Hyperbiotics are high quality, time released probiotics that address specific wellness goals,
specialized formulas are available for women, expecting and nursing moms, oral health, and weight and immune system support. Hyperbiotics formulas are vegetarian, non-GMO, and free of lactose, gluten, and sugar. There is also no soy, iron, nuts, artificial flavors, artificial colors, or preservatives.
As a soon-to-be mom, it is so important for me to keep healthy during pregnancy and as I approach my third trimester, so many changes to my gut health are happening in order to help our little girl grow and be healthy, which means I need to be filling my body with everything I can to help. Hyperbiotics Pro-Mom formula is a perfect supplement in addition to my prenatal vitamin.
Probiotics replenish the good bacteria in your gut and can support expectant and nursing moms by:
• Promoting optimal immune response of mother and child
• Supporting healthy glucose levels
• Reducing the dreaded pregnancy-related constipation
• Producing folate (the non-synthetic version of folic acid)
• Encouraging shedding of the baby weight
• Promoting proper nutrient absorption
• Supporting more balanced mental and emotional function
• Increasing the odds of successful breastfeeding
4// Stretch your body.
Before you roll over in the morning and scroll Instagram for 10 minutes or browse Facebook, try stretching out your body. You can do it right in bed, before you start your day. Stretch your body completely strait, arms above head toes pointed and just breath. Then slowly sit up and reach for the sky. Hold this for a few seconds now reach for your toes. Stretching helps work out kinks in our body from sleeping and can get our blood flowing to help us get a little burst of energy in the morning to get moving.
5// Take a break from your phone for an hour of your day.
There are so many times I get home from work and I sit on the couch and just zone out on my phone. It honestly drains the life right out of me when I do it, it does no good for my soul or brain. Instead grab a book and carve out some reading time or spend a little time on a hobby that fell to the way side. Another great activity to relax with is a coloring book or a nice hot bath. Do something for yourself where you are not comparing your life to others, or mindlessly scrolling something, trust me your brain and body will thank you for it.
