The first few minutes of your morning can set the tone for the rest of your day. Therefore, it’s important to make those minutes count. No matter which side of the bed you wake up on, you are in control of your outlook and attitude once your feet hit the floor. So, here are a few suggestions to ensure you start your day off right
1. Get to bed on time
Your mind and body need sleep. There is no way around it. Make it a priority to get to bed on time so that you can wake up rested and ready to start your day. When you don’t get adequate sleep, your alarm clock awakens you out of a restorative REM, deep sleep which can leave you feeling groggy and sluggish.
2. Choose a pleasant sound
Gone are the days where you have to wake up to a blaring, repetitive, headache-inducing, bad mood producing alarm. You can now choose more pleasant sounds to wake up to and why not? The tune of a favorite song or a soft instrumental beat is a much calmer and more pleasant way to start your day.
3. Think positive thoughts
You are the thoughts you think. It is so important to start your day grateful for a fresh start and a new opportunity to do each day better than the one before.
4. Reserve some time for yourself
It’s always best to give yourself 10-15 minutes of “me” time before you get your day started. If that means enjoying a cup of tea, reading the paper, playing a mindless game…whatever it may be…give yourself a few minutes before other people and events in your life claim the rest of your day.
5. Start with lemon water
Lukewarm water with freshly squeezed lemon has numerous benefits – but you need to drink it first thing in the morning. It starts your metabolism, which burns fat while sustaining muscle, cleanses your mouth and throat, and gives you a boost of energy.
6. Plan your day
While you drink your lemon water, set some feasible goals for the day. This might include packing your lunch instead of eating out, committing to a noon work-out, or scheduling the doctor’s appointment you’ve been putting off.
