“Good morning! Isn’t it a beautiful day?” Well, you can make or break your day in the next hour or so. How you start your morning has a huge impact on how the rest of your day will go. Sticking to a routine may help you have a better day.
The early morning hours are usually very calm and peaceful. Because of that, if you want a little time to get your head screwed on straight before your day starts, you should try to get up at a decent time in the morning.
Perhaps one of the most useful routines is to open all the windows in your house as soon as you wake up (weather permitting, of course.) This will help you to feel energized and refreshed, ready to face the day that lays ahead of you. Brush your teeth and drink a few glasses of water and you will feel almost ready to face the day.
Exercise is another great way to start your day. Do whatever works for you, whether that be taking a brisk walk or jog in the morning, jumping on a mini-trampoline, or perhaps yoga and meditation is your style. Remember, all of these are also a great way to stay in shape.
If you are the type of person who likes to take showers or bathes in the morning, make sure you use nice warm water, as this will help you feel refreshed as well.
Never skip breakfast. This is said to be the most important meal of the day. What you eat for breakfast will have an effect on how you feel and work throughout the day. Make sure you have a nutritious breakfast, not just junk food.
Now comes that part of the morning that most people dislike. Chore time. How can you make a time of drudgery become time well spent? Try playing upbeat music that you enjoy while you work. Or you could spend a few minutes reading a newspaper or book before you start your chores so that you will have something constructive to think about.
Before you leave the house or start your work, spend a few minutes making a list of things you would like to accomplish before the day is done. Also spend sufficient time on your looks. If you look good it will help lift your spirits. Try to look cheerful. If you look cheerful, most people will respond in kind, and that will make your day easier.
At the end of the day, reflect on how your day went. What were some things you could have done better? How will you do in the same circumstances tomorrow? Plan ahead for tomorrow and you will have a wonderful day.
