5 Morning Habits For a Better Day

  1. Get up 30 minutes earlier than you have to.
    • This gives you an opportunity to prepare yourself for the day
  2. Drink a full glass of water before you do anything else.
    • This rehydrates your body after 6-8 hours or no intake and aids digestion
  3. Take about 7-8 minutes to answer a few questions of self-reflection.  Here are some examples, but you should come up with questions that work for you.
    • How am I feeling in one word?
    • Why do I feel that way?
    • What am I thankful for?
    • What were the best things that happened yesterday?
    • What were the worst things that happened yesterday?
    • What is going to challenge me today?

I recommend using a journaling app called OneDay 

  1. 5 Minutes of physical activity (50 push-ups, squats, curls, lunges, etc.)
    • This will help wake you up and boost blood flow
  2. Make a list of the 3 most important thing to do that day.

 

Bonus:

  • Lay out your clothes the night before.
  • Do all the dishes and tidy up before you go to bed.
  • Make a plan for your day before going to bed.
