A good morning can change your day. This is something most successful people strongly believe in. A pleasant and satisfying morning can change how you feel throughout your day, how your work performances are and even how you deal with your relationships. Starting the day off wrong is not something any of us want or desire. So here are a few of our tips on how to improve your mornings, in order to have a better day ahead…!
Get proper sleep
Oh, but this is quite, quite important. Humans in general need proper sleep for better physical and mental health; and it’s recommended that as adults, we should be getting at least 7 to 9 hours of undisturbed sleep. Having a good night’s sleep will help you wake up in a better mood, and feel definitely more energized and ready to face the day. Evaluate your nightly routine if you feel you don’t get proper sleep, and eliminate anything that prevents you from the sleep you deserve. Then observe the change in your life…!
Organize your life
Though this is the second tip that roots from the night before, it can be almost as important. Try and organize your life. Select and prepare your outfits ahead of time so you are not forced to make “choices” early in the morning; something that generally puts people off to a bad mood. Ideally, you should do this on your “free/off day”; but if that is not possible, then the night before works just as well. This also gives you a little extra time in the mornings; so it’s an additional benefit.
Eat your breakfast
If your mother told you that breakfast is the most important meal of your day; then she wasn’t wrong. A goof breakfast can help you start off a great day. Planning an exciting breakfast (the night before) will give you something to look forwards to, and also help to wake up in the morning. Some people claim that having the same breakfast every day helps them more. This is because they needn’t make choices based on their mood in the morning; or make any extra effort. Try out both methods and see which works better for you.
Don’t rush your mornings
if you followed our advice with the above three tips, then you’d notice that you now have more time in the mornings. This allows you to take things slow. Breath in your morning coffee; and savor the morning. Make it your time for emptying out your mind. If you are a believer of god, then use your mornings to connect with him. If the distance allows it, walk to work. Take in your city and soak up the sunlight. This has proved to help people concentrate better with their work day too.
Stir up your positivity each morning. If you are someone who feels energized and filled with positivity after hitting the gym (or working out by yourself), then try to get in a little exercise in the mornings. Guzzle some water, catch up with your friends as you commute to work; do anything that’ll bring a smile onto your face…
