You should start as you mean to go on, is what they say. If you want to have a fantastic day, then you need to have a fantastic morning! But of course, this is easier said than done. While there are some people who are naturally thriving in the morning, for many people it’s more of a pessimistic period. They just don’t want to get out of bed, least of all begin the commute to work. But what choice do you have? If this is the hand you’ve been dealt, then that’s the one you’ve got to play — so make sure you play it well. Below, we take a look at a few tried and tested ways to be at your best, every morning.
Most people try to stay in bed as long as they can, and then rush through the morning processes so they can leave the house in time. While it might seem like it’s a good idea to have an extra thirty minutes in bed, it’s not all that conducive to having a morning that sets you up strong for the whole day. Instead, look at getting up early, and do the things that’ll make your morning a good one. A cold shower, a cup of tea or coffee, and a delicious breakfast as you read will all put you in a zen frame of mind that’ll last the whole day.
If you ask anyone who does exercise in the morning, they’ll all tell you the same thing: it’s a game-changer when it comes to how the rest of their day pans out. While many people sleepwalk their way through their commute and the first hour of work, a person who’s worked up a sweat arrives alert and ready to rock and roll. Your exercising doesn’t need to be anything too strenuous — a quick morning workout or run is all it takes.
Looking Your Best
We all know the feeling of waking up, getting to the bathroom, and realizing that, oh god, today’s not going to be one of my better-looking days. It’s one of those things, while it shouldn’t be so important, can really derail our day. So why not take the guesswork out of whether you’re going to look at your best, and find some consistency? If you learn the perfect morning makeup routine and figure out an easy way to make your hair look great, you’ll be able to leave the front door knowing you look at your dazzling best, always. Everything changes when we know that we’re looking at our best.
Stop and Smell The Roses
It can feel like we’re always in a rush in the morning, that we’re just scrambling to work. But if you change your mindset, at least a little, then you can establish an attitude that sees you enjoy the morning. One such way: stop and smell the roses. Instead of headbutting your commute, appreciate the small beauties that you see on route. It’ll put you in a good mood.
