If mornings are hard for you, then you aren’t doing them right. Sure, not all of us are morning people, but that doesn’t mean we can’t own our own mornings. Something as simple as waking up early will translate into amazing benefits in the short and long run.
One of the best ways to start your day is to do a 15-minute stretching routine. This will pump you up just like an expresso shot right to your brain. The only difference that this energy boost will last you all day long. Just as you wake up, try to stay away from electronics for a while. Checking your email or social media will stress your brain out.
Use your mornings to plan your day, in case you didn’t the night before. Set an achievable and realistic to-do list, and allow yourself a little ‘me-time’ away from distractions. Think about what you have achieved so far and your next goals. This will keep you motivated and happy, even during those days you aren’t at your best.
In the mornings, we recommend you listen to upbeat music. This will subconsciously stimulate endorphin production and will make you feel happy and relaxed throughout the day.
Most importantly, eat a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast is a common habit, but it isn’t a very healthy one. Having a good breakfast is the only way to get enough energy inside your body for your brain to start working properly.
