Mornings are busy, especially if you have a job and/or a family.
Rushing around in the morning and trying to get where you need to be on time is a pain in the butt, and it makes everything start stressfully.
Instead of rushing to get yourself out the door in the morning, you need to slow down and start thinking about how you can plan your day better.
The right habits will make you start your day well, feeling good and confident about what’s ahead.
Your morning sets the tone for the day
What you do in the morning dictates what happens in the rest of your day, especially when it comes to your mood.
The simplest habits that you put into place are going to change the way that you do things, and you will only ever feel better for it.
5 Morning habits to start your day off right
Start With A Good Breakfast
Food is so important and the breakfast that you have is going to set you up for the rest of the day.
It’s also important that you choose the right balance of food and coffee: your coffee choice will really make your morning!
Choosing a really aromatic coffee, such as Jamaican Me Crazy is going to make you feel energized and happy.
Add this to the correctly balanced breakfast and you’re going to feel healthy and happy and raring to go!
It’s very easy to want to get on your phone from the moment you wake up but it’s important to resist that want.
Technology will instantly fire up your brain before you’ve even woken up properly.
Getting into the habit of staring at a screen first thing in the morning puts considerable strain on your eyes.
It’s a surefire way to guarantee problems with your eyesight down the line.
If this sounds like you, it might be worth booking an appointment with an eye doctor or investing in some new specs here to save your vision before it’s too late.
So instead of giving in to the urge to pick up your phone, start your day in a place of peace.
Turn on the radio instead of the TV and eat breakfast slowly and peacefully.
You’ll feel an instant change in your morning.
Yes, the coffee is amazing, but you know what’s even more amazing? Water.
Cold, clean water.
Drink a pint of water while you make food and get ready.
It’s a refreshing, healthy way to start the day and it’s going to change your life.
By starting your day smiling, you set your mood for the rest of the day.
It is all too easy to start off stressed and worried, but you don’t have to be that way.
Start your day relaxed, with a smile, and think about the things which make you feel grateful.
You will never regret being positive and optimistic when you start your day happy.
I make sure to ask my hubby how he slept and smile at him every morning!
Make The Bed
Before you even head to grind the coffee, make the bed.
There’s nothing more satisfying than climbing into a clean bed every evening, one that’s had time to air out and cool down.
The bedroom being tidy will also give you a feeling of organization, which can help your cluttered mind!
You may not be one for meditation, but you need to be one for stretching out and reaching the sky.
If you can incorporate mindful practice while you stretch out your sleepy muscles, you’re going to be ahead of the game for your morning!
Not a breakfast person?
After your morning glass of water, start your day with a fruit-filled smoothie.
It is cold and refreshing!
