Lifestyle Tip: Check Your Phones and Emails After Your Morning Routine

With all my social media feeds and emails, I find my phone/computer can drive me into a state of panic and stress at times. Can you relate? I go on and on about stress being the number one health killer in my opinion. It is particularly important to start your day off on a stress free note. Waking up with a beautiful health routine will signal to your nervous system that all is ok, and shift you into parasympathetic mode – this is when your body gets to rest and repair (and burn fat for energy by the way!).This will do wonders for your hormones and state of mind.

So, instead of opening my eyes and turning straight to my phone and computer, I have now made a conscious effort to only look at my phone AFTER my morning health routine. After I have done my belly breaths, drunk my lemon water, exercised/stretched (when I have time) and had breakfast. I actually think because of this small lifestyle adjustment, I am digesting my breakfast much better (remember the blood diverts away from the digestive system during stress). I am also enjoying my mornings even more!

Thought I would share this with you, it may help you!

    This is great advice

  • Julie Beth

    This is so great !
    I too , have been thinking lately
    That when I look at my phone first
    I am totally side tracked from all my healthy habits
    And instead doing all other stuff I would not have gotten to til later …
    This is great advice and I hope all will take note
    I really believe we need to take care of ourselves
    First ,before we can do for others ..
    I love your articles and advice
    Thank you …❤

    Good advice, and I love all your recipes. It has really inspired me to live a healthier lifestyle so just wanted to say thank you!! Did you mention you will be putting an E book on here? I would love it if you had a book, I would definitely buy it! A real inspiration!

    • Hey Lisa! I have a bunch of great e-books, you can find them in the Shop tab on my website!

    This is great. I will try to implement the same!

  • Stacey

    Definitely trying this in the morning! It sounds so simple but it makes so much sense to do this! Thanks for the tip, Jess 🙂

  • Hi Jess

    I try to do this too, and when I’m disciplined enough to not falter (which does happen), it’s absolutely brilliant! Also try to implement a screens off after 7 routine.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Good advice! I wake up and check my Instagram/Wordpress/Facebook at first, but I think to live less stressful it’s better to do that later if you’ve done your morning workout.
