Dr. Alejandro Junger starts his day in a snuggly way


alejandro_jungerWelcome to My Morning Routine, where Dr. Alejandro Junger and other good-life gurus share their personal (frequently surprising, often healthy) morning rituals—to help you make your a.m.’s more awesome.  

Dr. Alejandro Junger
Medical director and creator of the Clean Program

Each morning I try to take 10 minutes to myself to gather and reflect on my thoughts, intentions and wishes for the day. Ideally I do this before getting out of bed.

My breakfast almost always consists of a nutrient-rich shake, like this Almond Butter Berry one using the Daily Shake Mix. I often add different fruits and leafy greens. I add all ingredients into my Breville Boss blender, which gets everything blended smoothly.

To support good gut health, especially when I’m traveling, I always have a daily probiotic on hand. This is good for my immune system and aids with digestion.

I also take vitamin D3 each day. D3 is a crucial anti-inflammatory and necessary for good mood and mental health so I take it daily, even in the summer. It’s one of the biggest deficiencies I see with my clients.

I love to linger in my pajamas as long as possible, so I save showering and getting dressed for my day until the very end of my morning routine. I also love my Padraig Slippers and often keep them on, even when I leave the house.
