1. Drink warm water every single morning

“The major root cause of obesity is slow metabolism. To keep metabolism under check, you must drink at least 1-2 glasses of warm or lukewarm water once you get up in the morning. As per Ayurveda, drinking water mixed with lemon and honey accelerates metabolism and also aids in shedding weight,’ shares Kaul.

2. Don’t skip exercising

Exercising for at least 25 to 30 minutes a day is extremely essential to keep your body healthy. Lightweight exercises help in building agility and flood our body with the right energy at the very start of the day. Most people prefer going to the gym nowadays, and that is indeed also quite helpful. If you are running out of time, you can keep yourself fit and healthy by doing light exercises in the morning at home.

3. Soak in the sunlight

“Vitamin D is extremely beneficial and essential for our body. The first rays of the sun in the morning are rich in vitamin D. It gives positive energy to our body and mind. You can hit your garden daily to exercise in the morning or any open area. Alongside, vitamin D helps in reducing weight,” suggests the expert.

4. Never skip your breakfast

Several people skip their morning breakfast thinking that it will help them in reducing weight. This might prove harmful for the body. Any form of inadequate diet makes our body feeble. Sometimes, prolonged hunger can lead to weight gain rather than weight loss as feeling famished for long can make you binge-eat. Also, starving yourself can lead to lack of vital nutrients in the body.

5. Plan your meals for the day

Every single morning, jot down the list of things you will eat in your day. By being mindful of what you are going to eat in a day, will help you become mindful by consciously opting for low-calorie foods. If you’ve already decided what to much on for your day’s snacks and meals, you won’t reach out for calorie-convenience foods. By being planned in advance, you will be mindful of what you consume and will take charge of your health.
