3 Before-Breakfast Habits For A Better Body

Try this morning routine to get your day off to a great start

By Kathy Smith

If you’re feeling like you’ve hit a fitness plateau and can’t seem to make progress, here are three simple habits you can incorporate into your routine before breakfast that will jumpstart your metabolism and set up your day for success.

This isn’t a gimmick or impossible goal; it is something I live by each and every morning.

My days begin with a 20-minute gratitude meditation, then I press play on my iPod and listen to a playlist that includes Jack Johnson and Mumford and Sons. Create your own morning ritual by trying the following three techniques that can help you have a better body and improve your health.  After a while, they’ll become second nature.


The before-breakfast solution to a better body is simple. Drink some water and green tea, do some yoga and prepare healthy food. You only have one opportunity each day to put these practices into motion. Before breakfast is the golden opportunity to create a haven of health and repose before the day begins. With each morning, you’ll be taking action toward a more vibrant body.
