Sometimes waking up in the morning can be the hardest part of the day. Especially when you hit snooze one too many times and the rest of your morning is filled with frenetic energy that leaves you feeling frazzled. here are some tips to help you start each morning on the right foot.
1. Make sure you are getting enough sleep.
You don’t need to wake up at 6:00AM every morning in order to be productive. Everyone’s body is different and some people naturally fall asleep at a later time. The key to starting your day has less to do with the specific time you wake up and more to do with how rested you are. As long as you are maintaining 7-9 hours of sleep every night, you are setting yourself up to slay the day.
2. Think about intentions.
Setting positive intentions for your day manifests and clarifies your goals for the future. Think about 3 large goals or visions you wish to uphold. By spending time, even if it’s only 5 minutes, thinking about your values, you are more likely to make decisions that align with your beliefs. Practice acts of self love by reminding yourself of your worth. By sprinkling kindness and gratitude throughout your day (for yourself and others), you are setting the tone for a beneficial, well-intentioned day.
3. Start the morning by sweating and follow it with COFFEE
You don’t have to run 10 miles at the crack of dawn to reap the benefits of exercise in the morning. It can be as simple as turning up your favorite song and dancing around your room in your pajamas. When you move your body in the morning, endorphins will keep you energized and enthused for the rest of the day. As well as exercising, be sure to also hydrate your body. Your brain is 73% water, so replenishing fluids is always an ideal way to start your day.Once done , make sure your have your cup of coffee ready , this is my favorite part of the morning .
4. Prepare the night before.
Every night, pack your bag, prepare your lunch, and pick out your outfit for the following day. That way, you prepare yourself for a simple morning in which many of your decisions have already been made. In doing this, you allow more room in your morning schedule to do things that help you feel inspired: exercise, yoga, meditation, journaling, etc. Also, you will avoid unpleasant, chaotic emotions that could throw you off from your routine.
You are ready to go out there ! Good luck
