Your morning sets the tone for your day. So it stands to reason that to have a successful and productive day, it’s vital to have a successful and productive morning. That’s easier than it sounds, though, and sometimes you might wake up feeling like a car that’s died on the side of the road. Get back in gear with these five tips that are like jumper cables for your morning (except without the fear of being electrocuted and all that).
Get started an hour or two before people need your attention (or an hour before you’re ready to deal with others) to give yourself some personal space.
Give yourself structure in the morning and stick to it. And hey - might we suggest you use a notebook to stick to it?
It sounds counterintuitive, but some physical activity (it doesn’t have to be strenuous; try a walk or quick yoga session) in the morning gets that blood flowing and energy pumping.
A car can’t drive without gas, so you can’t expect your body to perform without food.
Sort of — you should still answer your emails, but do it later. In the dead of winter, it’s a bad idea to slam on the gas as soon as you start your car. Similarly, your body and brain need some time to warm up in the morning.
There are 365 days a year, so why not make every one count. With these 5 tips, you’re well on your way to doing that. Start by waking up a little earlier to extend your day, and then create a regimented routine to follow each morning. Make sure to include some exercises into that routine to get your body’s motor running and ready for the tasks that lie ahead. Finally, fuel yourself with some good food (healthy-wise and taste-wise) before jumping into some of the more stressful activities, like answering emails. You’re now stocked with the knowledge to make every day a success, it’s like your a morning mechanic. A master of mornings. A morning maestro. Regardless of which metaphor you choose, you’re ready to kick some ass every day.
