Habit number 1. Waking up smoothly
To prepare their cardiovascular system for exertion, athletes always perform a warm-up. This must always be done. Including after awakening. Therefore, do not rush to get out of bed abruptly.

This will help to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, and make the day more pleasant.
Habit number 2. Drink water after waking up
Start the day with a glass of water. Water will make up for the nightly loss of fluid that was involved in the body’s metabolic processes. Also, a glass of water will help start the work of the gastrointestinal tract, which means that by breakfast the body will be ready to fully absorb the food.
Habit number 3. Full breakfast
The first meal after awakening is very important. If you do not like breakfast, this is in vain, because you can not skip it. A full breakfast should include proteins, fats, and complex carbohydrates, which help make up for the loss of energy and recharge your batteries with energy and a good mood for the day.
