ARE YOUR MORNINGS SETTING YOU UP?
Two nights ago, I woke up to the alarm tone feeling sore and weak. A peep through the window revealed a bright day yet I didn’t as bright as the day.
Waking up in the morning should make you feel refreshed but it does not usually always turn out this way. Sometimes, you try to point fingers to find out where things went wrong but you can’t figure it out. To steer out of this positive energy feeling, you would need to change your morning routine.
Imagine if you had a nice morning routine that set you up for a positive day. Wouldn’t that be so much better?
Start the day with prayers. Connecting with God and hearing from him gives you the strength to carry on with the day. Make it a habit of exercising first thing in the morning. It ensures that you’ll have the time for it, and it improves your self-control and energy levels all day long.
It’s much healthier to take those precious first moments of the day to do something relaxing that sets a calm, positive tone for your day. Jumping right into electronics has the opposite effect—it’s a frantic way to start your day.
Eating anything at all for breakfast puts you ahead of a lot of people. People who eat breakfast are less likely to be obese, they have more stable blood-sugar levels, and they tend to be less hungry and grumpy over the course of the day.
Getting your morning started off right at home is important, but it’s only half the battle. If you fail to maintain that tone once you set foot in the office, your morning can lose momentum quickly. Clean your workspace, start the day with one or two easy tasks and work on your hardest tasks when you work best.
Maintaining good morning routines is a good start-off point to having a great day.
