After watching this morning routine, our new goal is to wake up before the alarm goes off. That's how Dr. Ellen Vora knows she truly got enough sleep the night before. At mbg, we believe in the power of routine and ritual, but we also know that there's always more to learn.

If you're as into morning routines as we are, you'll love Dr. Vora's tips. Ellen Vora M.D. is a holistic psychiatrist practicing with Frank Lipman M.D. at the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. We love that it's realistic (read: one to two minutes of meditation is enough and OK!) and goes beyond the basics. She shares a few gems, specifically her favorite breathwork and meditation app and her signature morning tonic, which has a fascinating ingredient we can't wait to try.
