Seriously, This Is What the Healthiest Eaters Do Before 7 A.M. Every Day

As the year continues to surge forward (can you believe it's almost July already?), it's safe to say we're all feeling the effects of a very busy 2018. We can't physically slow down time for you, but we can at least offer some guidance to help you find moments of relief amid the chaos. The first step toward having a happier (and more productive) day is to create a morning routine—it sets the tone for the entire day. 

The best time to start is at golden hour, before 7 a.m. when everything is still and quiet. Here, you can realistically seek a moment of clarity before you're pulled back into the inbox vortex. If being an early riser doesn't come naturally to you, then don't put too much stress on yourself. Just start small—even 10 minutes earlier will help.

If you get up at the crack of dawn on your first day, you won't stick to it. So set reasonable expectations and incorporate a few small healthy practices into your morning routine every day. To get you started, here are a few things healthy, fit people do before 7 a.m. every day.
