Here’s hoping you start your day everyday with Me on K103 ! If you have trouble waking up, here are some tips that might help:
What about that timeworn advice, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”?
“Some experts might say don’t skip breakfast, but you know what? Contrary to everything you’ve heard, it’s not a mandate for everyone,” says Neily.
If you’ve never eaten breakfast and maintain a healthy weight, there’s no reason to start, she says.
For those who choose to begin their day with a scrumptious meal, breakfast might include a protein source, some whole grains, a veggie, fruit and maybe some low-fat dairy, says Lemond.
Her suggestion: a whole wheat burrito with spinach, cheese and egg and a side of mixed berries.
It’s these seemingly mundane morning rituals, like that mug of coffee, berry smoothie and exercise class, that spark Phillips into motion.
“I feel like my energy is best in the morning,” she says. “I’m more creative and focused and optimistic in the morning, and just have kind of a better attitude of the world.”

Tips for a good morning
Have a good nighttime routine. Moderate your caffeine intake after noon and refrain from intense exercise before bed.
Get between seven and nine hours of sleep at night.
Wake up at least two hours before you need to be anywhere so you can prepare for the day.
Exercise in the morning to get the blood flowing. A light jog, bike ride or morning kickboxing class are good options.
