In the first years out of college, you might have struggled with the transition into “real adulthood.” Adulting is hard! But as you started to make health and self-care more of a priority, you realized that you were lacking a solid morning routine.

If you establish a routine, you will be helped set the tone for a healthy day, every morning, every day. Aside from the universal tip of “eat breakfast,” here are the top five things that will help you rise and shine; try these for a morning of wellness!
Before you start saying “oil pulling is so 2014,” hear me out. I grind my teeth at night, and I know I’m not alone in this. In addition to the possible oral health benefits, oil pulling exercises a stiff jaw to alleviate pain, forces you to get up 20 minutes earlier, and acts as a chemical-free mouthwash.
While you oil pull, just stretch. Take this time to relax, meditate a bit, and warm up your body for the day. If I have time or get up early enough, go to yoga or do a few Sun Salutations in your room. You know I’ll be in a desk chair all day, so try to carve out some time to always get a good stretch session in.
Drink Lemon Water
A room-temperature glass of lemon water has tons of health benefits: alongside improved hydration, you’ll get a vitamin C boost for glowing skin, a metabolism boost, and a mood boost.
Care For Your Skin
If you don’t have an extreme 11-step Korean skin care routine, but you do have a pretty solid lineup for my skin. Then cleanse your skin with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and your Clarisonic, then tone, apply serum, and moisturize. Twice a week, use a peel, and three times a week, use a retexturizing scrub. And you know what? You never know your skin could be this good! The byproduct of this is that you now look forward to waking up to go through your skin care routine.
Take B12 for energy, omega-3 for mood and muscle health, and vitamin E for hair, skin, and nails. If you’re drinking your vitamins in a shake, use Vega One powder mixed with some coconut milk. At the risk of sounding like your mom, take your vitamins!
