You’re probably not going to forget to breath even if it weren’t on this list but you can use breath in so many ways.

During said exercise, if your mind begins to wander just bring your focus back to your breath. Repeating this exercise for just a few minutes can make all the difference. It will clear your mind and get you ready for the challenges of the day to come.

Exercise. Get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. You don’t need to go crazy. And if you haven’t worked out in a while, no worries. Simply start. A brisk walk in the morning can do a world of wonders for your daily outlook. You could even use this time for some yoga or pilates. Some simple calisthenics like pushups, sit up, dips, squats and pull-ups work great, also. Whatever you decide get moving and enjoy the emotional & chemical boost that will come after.
