Balancing Morning Rituals

Aveda Blue Oil

No matter how busy or fast-paced life may get, it is important to take some time out of your morning for yourself, to get centered and ready to take on the day ahead. Even if you have just a few minutes, a little bit of wellness can change the nature of your entire day. Here are some quick, stress-free rituals for the morning.

  1. Blue Oil Balancing Concentrate

    This Aveda blend of peppermint and chamomile helps to relieve stress and increases your energy level. Rub a few drops of this oil into the palms of your hands. Cover your mouth and nose with your hands and take three deep inhalations. This is the perfect ritual for those on-the-go and can also be used on the skin for a cooling sensation that helps with muscle relief.

  2. Camel Pose

    Camel pose is a yoga pose that opens up the air passages in your lungs and gives you a deep back stretch. This is perfect to do just as you wake up. To perform this pose, sit on your knees. Reach your hands back and hold your ankles. Arch your back and lean your head back. Hold for 15 seconds and repeat 3 times.

  3. Drink a Glass of Warm Lemon Water

    Drinking a glass of water in the morning is a great alternative to tea or coffee and helps to rehydrate your body. Lemon also helps digestion and the warmth of the water will help calm and warm the body.

  4. Seven Minutes of Exercise

    Exercise in the morning is very important because it releases stress relieving hormones called endorphins. Recent studies show that seven minutes is just enough to get your energy up without making you groggy for the rest of the day.

Implementing just one or all of these rituals into your morning routine can give you a fresh start to your day and help your body and mind feel revitalized.
