The energy you bring into your day can have a lasting effect on the rest of your day. Your intention, energy, and mindset should be used to your advantage at the beginning of each day so that you could live your day to your fullest potential and reach your goals more easily.
Ways to improve how you start your day:
🌸Before going to bed at night
-visualize what you want to do and accomplish during the next day. (Set your intention)
-Set an alarm for early in the morning (My sweet spot is usually between 5 and 6 a.m) If you have work/school, set your alarm for at least 2 hours beforehand. Those two hours can help a lot each day.
If you are someone who needs many alarms to get out of bed, set one half an hour before, one for 10 minutes before and one for 5 minutes before, but get up physically at the five minutes before one so that you still have 5 more minutes to get your act together… Remember to try overtime to get rid of snoozing.
-Wake up with a smile. I have found that this improves my mood and positivity tremendously during the day.
Each day is a blessing, and you can treat it as such with a smile.
-Don’t lay in bed longer, get out of bed.
-Make up your bed, because then you’ve already completed a simple task for the day, embedding discipline.
🌸Have a Morning Routine
P.S this is just the tip of the iceberg of the things you can do in the morning. Find a morning routine that suits you.
-Go over your goals for the day (mentally or already have a to-do list). Look forward to completing them; mindset is important.
-Meditate/Journal/Practice gratitude/Read. Do something to improve yourself mentally and/or spiritually.
-Workout for 5-30minutes. This is also a huge mood and determination booster for me.
-Watch a morning motivational video
-Listen to morning affirmations
-Drink a glass of water. Already have a glass of water waiting for you next to your bed.
-Don’t check your social media, you’ll get distracted.
I have found most of these things listed above very helpful to improve my day, productivity, and mood.
