The morning routine is the new buzz word and even if you can’t make it to the 5 am Club, you can still figure out what works best for you.

Simple things like waking up 30 minutes earlier to sip on a cup of tea while reading a book or meditate for 10 minutes are ways to start the day with a clear mind.

Practicing breathing techniques has several health benefits such as sharpening the mind, it helps regulate stress, calms inflammation, and so on.

20-minutes of yoga breathing can be done first thing in the morning, before or after your meditation, shower, or fitness routine.

It sounds so simple, right? How can a cold shower help you to improve your overall health? Water therapy has been used for centuries to help the body deal with harsher conditions.

Taking a cold shower for up to 5 minutes, 2 to 3 times per week helps improve metabolism, improves blood circulation, and helps the body fight infections.
