By immediately starting each day “on the right foot,” with a simple habit like drinking a glass of water, practicing five minutes of yoga or meditating on a positive mantra, you can easily set the pace for the remainder of the day. Darshi Shah, C.N.T, C.P.T., I.N.H.C. , a certified health coach, board-certified nutritional therapist and author of upcoming book, R.I.G.H.T. Diet for Autoimmunity, recommends writing your thoughts in a journal each morning just after waking up. “Those first morning thoughts are soon forgotten otherwise, but they can bring anxiety and hinder your normal progress,” Shah said. “Once written down —never to be forgotten — changes start to occur within you and your vital energy that enable you to plan, communicate, and focus easier. And each night you can review how your day started.”
