We don't always have a great morning. But in order to have a great day, we really need that good – or even a great start.
For us, a bad morning usually caused by sleeping late, an immediate jump to social media, or not knowing what to do for the rest of the day. So, when things went the other way how do we fix them?
1. Morning Stretch
We often hear the benefit of working out in the morning before we do anything else. It sets up our moods and gives us more energy for the rest of the day. But sometimes we're just not feeling to do a high impact workout. Instead, we go for an easy & slow morning stretch instead. This won't take long, simply search for a "10-minutes Morning Stretch" on Youtube and you're already set up for the day.
A morning yoga/stretch allows you to have a moment for yourself before the hustle you're about to have in the next 30 minutes or so. It also allows you to set your intention for the day, whether it is to be productive, to get inspired, or to finish a few simple & hard tasks. With great intention, comes a great result.
2. Coffee Fix or Any-favorite-drink Fix
Yes, yes, we've all seen this "I can't function without my caffeine" everywhere that it's getting cliche. But, for us getting a coffee or any drink in the morning makes us feel happy and content. It's a way to get our morning set up great.
3. Dress Up
This one brings a great impact, especially since we're now mostly working from home. Dressing up and putting our make up on also acts as a switch on our brain. Transforming from sleepy-bed-rest mode into a work mode. We firmly believe that if we look good, we'll do good.
4. Make a List
Did you know? Making a list is actually a way to get things done more effectively. Our brain capacity can only hold a teeny, tiny amount of memory. So, writing it down and making a list out of it will help our brain to stop overworking and allows us to actually get things done.
