It is, unfortunately, something we all dread but we all have to do. Getting up, getting ready and then going to work can be a real drudge. But it doesn’t have to be. There are ways to make it better. So sit back, relax and let me help you to start your day right with a few morning tips.
It’s important to not forget the night before. You want a better morning? Make sure you have a plan for the night before.
The Night Before
- Go to sleepyti.me and find out when you need to be going to bed. It uses your getting up time to give you options for going to sleep. It does this so that you don’t wake up in the middle of a sleep cycle. Doing so is what makes you groggy and tired in a morning.
- Lose the distractions. Artificial light sources are known to affect your sleep. So make sure your phone, tablet, tv etc are all off at least 30 minutes before bed.
- Don’t drink any caffeine products after 6PM.
Doing just these 3 things will help you to build a quality sleep routine. No more waking up tired and stressed!
Next let’s build a small morning routine to get you moving and being the productive beast we know you can be.
- When the alarm goes off, get out of bed. No messing with phones or laying there. It’s hard at first, but get up. Take the advice of Matt Bianco, get out of your lazy bed.
- Do a quick stretch routine or a 7 minute workout. Getting your blood flowing will make you feel more alert and motivated. It will also make you stronger and less likely to suffer from easy to ward off problems as you age.
- Shower time! To continue with your waking up routine, jump in the shower. You should now feel super alert and ready to face the day.
- Put on some music while you plan your day. After you have gotten ready, take 15 minutes to plan your working day. Doing this with music in the background is a great way to build a positive outlook for the day.
If you follow the above suggestions, you will soon build yourself a powerful routine. While everyone else is coming into the office unmotivated and pasty looking, you will be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Getting an advantage in the working environment can really pay off with regards to your career. But more importantly, it will make you happier, healthier for the rest of your life. So what are you waiting for?
