RISE AND SHINE YOUR WAY TO A PRODUCTIVE DAY
Whether you run a business, are self-employed or you’re an employee, the way you wake up in the morning can make or break your day. To get the most out of your day, it’s important to wake up early with a positive mind. Check out some of our top tips for maintaining an optimistic morning routine.
Don’t hit the snooze button – It can be very tempting to hit the snooze button and give yourself an extra 10 minutes in bed. By doing this you’re not only delaying the start to your day, you’re also delaying the end to your day.
Don’t check your phone for emails or messages as soon as you wake up – If the first thing you do is reach for your phone to check emails/messages… then stop! You may find yourself problem solving first thing, which in turn could put a negative stamp on your day ahead. You will be much better equipped to deal with any issues once you’re up and ready.
Go to bed early and get up early – Not only is an early night good for health reasons, it is also good for the mind. A good early night will help you rise earlier and create that 25th hour in the day we all long for. Early risers are known for their positivity, productivity and determination to solve problems.
Eat a decent, healthy breakfast – A well balanced breakfast is often seriously underestimated. Not only will it kick start your metabolism and give your body energy, it will also help you think straight. No one wants to start their day with hunger pangs and feeling sluggish.
Plan the day ahead – The morning is a great time to review what you have to do and plan your day. Working out what you want to achieve with a positive mind-set will help you reach your goals to their full potential.
Exercise – Morning is the best time for a workout as it helps boost brain endorphins, gives you more energy and lowers stress levels. All these things combined will make for a more creative and productive day.
