As the saying goes, “the plan of a day is in the morning”. To meet the new day in the best state, we must do four things scientifically and reasonably.
First of all, after opening your eyes in the morning, lie down on the bed and exercise your limbs, and then slowly get up after three or five minutes. This good habit can not only avoid blood pressure fluctuations, dizziness and other phenomena caused by getting up suddenly, but also make you wake up quickly from a confused state. Three methods of moving limbs are recommended: bending and straightening the legs; Hold your knees with both hands for 10 seconds in your chest; Keep your hands straight back as far as possible.
The second thing is to get up and defecate in the morning. Once this good habit is formed, it will benefit you for life. People who haven’t had this habit can cultivate it intentionally. For example, eat more high fiber foods such as cabbage and coarse grain. After getting up early, no matter whether you feel like defecating or not, you should squat in the toilet. Over time, the habit will be formed.
Third, you must brush your teeth well in the morning. Even if you brush your teeth before going to bed, the oral environment at night is constant, which is most suitable for bacterial reproduction and growth, produces breath, and is harmful to oral health. Therefore, you must brush your teeth well in the morning, at least for 2 minutes.
Fourth, get up in the morning and drink a glass of boiled water. Professor Li Bin of the Department of Gastroenterology of the Fourth Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University said that a cup of boiled water in the morning can supplement the water lost by the body’s metabolism, promote excretion and prevent constipation. Moreover, it can dilute blood, promote blood circulation and prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, which is especially important for the middle-aged and old people. You can also replace boiled water with light salt water.
In the order of the latter three things, experts suggest that after getting up, it is best to defecate first, brush your teeth and wash your face, then drink a glass of boiled water on an empty stomach, and finally eat. However, according to individual constitution and habits, the time of defecation may be different, so it is not necessary to be too demanding. However, it is better to brush off the residual tartar and the breeding bacteria on the teeth before drinking water and eating, which is more conducive to health. After eating, rinse your mouth with clean water.
