A lot of days get ruined before they even begin. We think it’s partly due to pent-up problems from the previous day. And while you might fall victim to the Monday Blues or feel some negativity mid-week by waking up on the wrong side of the bed, we think it’s possible to reduce the chances. How? Keep reading for some quick tips!
Go to sleep and plan ahead!
Going to sleep early the night before guarantees you’ll get enough hours of rest and wake up rejuvenated and ready to tackle the day. Set your alarm to a specific time to ensure you get up on time! Also, make a mental note or a list of things you need to do the following day and prep for them. Prepping means selecting your outfits or meal prepping your lunch. This will save you some time when you’re awake.
Start a routine
Do you have a morning routine you follow before you go out each day? Has it been working well for you? If it hasn’t, it may be time to switch it up a bit. Try meditation, yoga, a short run, or reading a book to help boost your senses. We recommend doing this before a shower to help you stay stimulated. Following a steady routine usually helps you stay organized throughout the day and ensures you remain productive well into the evening.
Eat healthy foods
Skipping breakfast can make you cranky throughout the day! Not a great start to a positive morning. Drink some tea or coffee to kickstart your day, but don’t forget your fruits, veggies, and healthy protein. It will keep you at optimum performance throughout the morning well into the afternoon.
This list is not all you can do, but it’s a great starting point for building a positive morning routine. Feel free to add or remove from it as you please. Just make sure your physical, mental, and emotional health are being attended to!
