Are you a night owl or a morning bird?
I’ve been a morning bird my whole life. I love waking up before anyone else and having hours to start. I start my day with my morning routines to help my day be the best it can be!
What I find most interesting is that the most influential people in the World have a structured morning routine to help enhance their performance!
The beginning of the year is a great time to start a new health routine and starting your day with a sauna is a great way to start healing and getting healthy!
The Ultimate Morning Routine starts with a sauna where your body gets rejuvenated while your mind can meditate or spend time in prayer.
HOW TO START THE ULTIMATE MORNING ROUTINE
The ultimate morning routine doesn’t start when you wake up, it starts the night before. I make sure to go to bed early so I get a good night of sleep before I wake up early.
If you are new to a morning routine, the evening before is a great time to visualize your new routine and mentally prepare for all the benefits of waking up and doing a sauna. Early on in my health journey, I often would visualize myself as getting healthier and more fit even before I would start a new health routine. It helped me to accomplish and follow through with my goals.
Doing a morning sauna is great for many reasons. One is the convenience as you can do it before your shower. Since you were going to shower anyway, doing it after the sauna in the morning means you don’t waste anytime with a second shower later in the day. You also have high cortisol naturally in the morning. It is one of the ways our body wakes us up. There are good stresses like sauna that can raise cortisol too, and that is OK, but doing it in the morning when your cortisol is already high anyway means you don’t get a cortisol rise later in the day.
AFTER THE SAUNA
Make sure to hydrate! Do not just drink water, make sure you add in electrolytes.
Also, the more you sweat, you lose zinc, so adding a zinc supplement or focusing on foods high in zinc is important. The thyroid screams for zinc! If you decide to add in zinc, start slowly with a low dose or you might get nauseous.
Consider doing an ice bath or cold shower. Doing a cold plunge after a sauna helps activate brown fat, increase mitochondria activity and it helps increase dopamine! Even my son Micah asked, “Why do I get so happy after the sauna and cold plunge?” Yep! This morning routine helps make you happier through the day!
WHERE TO GET A SAUNA BLANKET
We do not have a lot of space at our Keto Condo in Maui so a sauna blanket was perfect for getting all the benefits without taking up space!
