Crunchy Resolutions: Megan’s Morning Routine
New Year’s resolutions are hard. Being a founder in the wellness industry, I am constantly surrounded by motivation to live a healthier and happier life, but sometimes life gets in the way. The New Year is a great opportunity to reset and revitalize our habits, relationships, and goals for the year ahead.
In 2024, my resolution is simple: stick with a consistent morning routine each day. The way that we start our day sets the tone for everything that follows. A well-crafted morning routine can be a game-changer for our mental and physical health. Pouring into myself each morning helps ensure that my cup is full so that I can pour into others and support the growth of my business!
Here’s what I want my morning routine to look like in 2024:
Meditating on my acupressure mat every morning is an essential part of my routine. It helps me to center and refocus for the day ahead. I like to choose a meditation from the MWH (Melissa Wood Health) library. I choose a length and focus that suits my day ahead and sink into bliss on the mat. It’s the most peaceful part of my day.
One of my favorite parts of my morning routine is my skin and self-care routine. First, I use my gua sha and jade roller to reduce inflammation and help improve circulation in my face and neck. Next, I use frozen eye gels to de-puff my eyes and wake myself up! Last, I go over my cheeks, under-eyes, and neck with an ice-roller to help depuff any lingering inflammation. This quick three-step routine always leaves me feeling refreshed.
After I wake up my mind and skin for the day, it’s time for a good sweat. Saunas are one of my favorite ways to detox. Saunas boost circulation, improve cardiovascular health, and decrease fatigue. 20 minutes of peace and heat in the morning activates my body and mind for the day ahead.
Every morning I wake up needing to hydrate. While I’m meditating, jade rolling, or depuffing in the morning, I always have a Crunchy nearby to fuel my body and mind. Some mornings I grab an Energize to give me a boost, while others I take a Calm to get me into a peaceful state of mind. Whichever Crunchy I choose, I know I’m relieving stress and increasing hydration with clean, simple, functional ingredients. PLUS every can contains 200mg of L-theanine for stress relief and focus.
Here are some ways you can make your new year Crunchy:
Make sleep a priority!
CBD has been proven to help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. Taking CBD tincture before bed can improve sleep quality and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day the next morning. Crunchy CBD is third party lab-tested, non-GMO, organic, and grown locally in Virginia. You can sleep sound knowing that your CBD is clean and safe.
Reduce afternoon caffeine intake
Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Reach for an Energize! With only 50mg of natural caffeine from green tea, you can still get that midday boost without affecting your sleep schedule. Plus, Energize won’t give you the caffeine jitters! With 200 mg of L-Theanine, each can is crafted to reduce stress and improve focus.
Balance gut health
Licorice root might not be your everyday go-to for an upset stomach, but it is for us at Crunchy Hydration! Our Stabilize blend has a curated blend of licorice root, dandelion root, L-theanine and Himalayan salt to help improve gut health, aid liver function, reduce stress and increase hydration. With a yummy raspberry flavor, there’s never been a tastier way to heal your gut with simple hydration.
One of the biggest culprits of feeling unwell is dehydration. Dehydration can cause fatigue, dizziness, and brain fog and can lead to serious health complications. The easiest way to avoid dehydration is to meet your daily hydration requirements and replenish missing electrolytes. At Crunchy Hydration, we know that salt is an easy and simple way to replenish lost electrolytes and improve water absorption, which is why each can of Crunchy has Himalayan salt to help you stay hydrated!
As we venture into 2024, I hope to build habits that support a more mindful, grounded, and Crunchy routine. I hope you will let Crunchy Hydration be your partner in doing the same.
Cheers to you and to a sparkling new year!
