If the last few years has left you in a funk, and you want to get your day started off on the right foot, there’s a few tips to take – all new ways in the morning habits to get your day started right:
First and foremost – use and actual alarm clock. Most of use a phone, but that means you will likely start your day looking at social media instead of getting up properly.
Begin the day with gratitude – take 30 seconds to be thankful for something in your life – even if it’s just having had a good night’s sleep, or the breakfast you’re about to have.
Set daily intentions – just a few things that you want to accomplish that day; nothing big, just realistic goals you can look forward to achieving.
Drink water – usually it’s coffee first thing in the morning, but water is better first if you’ve been asleep for a few hours, you’re dehydrated.
And if you start your day with exercise, it’ll release endorphins, which help relieve stress, and you’ll get it out of the way, so you don’t skip your workout later in the day.
