Your Ideal Daily Routine – According To Science

January 21, 2021 | Written by SleepyCat Team

Daily routines are an impulse. Carried out on reflex, you never pause to notice if, maybe, they need the backing of science.

You might contemplate shaking things up now and then to better suit your ever-changing lifestyle. But it’ll probably never occur to you to have a scientifically sound daily routine.

And while that’s okay, it’s never too late to revise your everyday timetable and make it more grounded in research-backed facts.

So let us show you what the ideal, ‘scientific’ daily routine looks like

Make your morning coffee but wait before you drink it.

You don’t need coffee to wake up. Medical experts say your body starts producing cortisol soon after you wake up so you can recharge your day. Adding coffee to the fray might slow down your natural wakefulness. The fix? Have your morning cuppa an hour after waking up.

Go for a run 

Or hit the gym. Or do aerobics! Whatever floats your boat. Studies suggest early morning exercises on an empty tummy are the best way to lose weight, stay fit and keep energetic all day long.

Fuel your body and your day 

Breakfast is called the ‘most important meal of the day’  for a reason. A protein, fiber and healthy fats-rich breakfast can help replenish your low energy levels so you can face the day with vigour.

Sit right – at your desk or wherever 

A poor posture can lead to multiple health issues. Think weight gain, sore muscles, eye strain and more. Make sure your body is properly aligned while sitting to fix and even prevent these problems.

Hydrate a LOT 

The benefits of staying hydrated are many. From improved energy levels to headache prevention – there’s a lot drinking the optimum amount of water can do.

Pack a breakfast-like lunch 

Your lunch should be a fuel refill just like your breakfast is. So, ditch the carbs and go for meals high in protein, fiber and good fats.

Take breaks 

Get up from your desk and take a 2-minute walk every hour. Not only will your eyes thank you, but your body will too as it’ll help reduce the risk of hitting an early grave significantly.

Watch your dinner portions 

Especially if you eat out. With more and more restaurants offering super-sized meals, it’s easy to get carried away and binge eat. So be mindful and eat smaller portions as your digestion slows down at night.

Put the screen away & sleep on clean sheets 

30 minutes of zero screen time before shut-eye is ideal. And so are clean sheets! Your bed can turn into an active bacteria zone due to the accumulation of sweat, debris, lint, pollen and more, causing allergies and making cleaning your sheets once a week compulsory. Try mattress protectors, waterproof ones, to add an extra layer of protection. You can also use a latex mattress to keep allergies at bay.
