7 Tips for Better Mornings

#1  Prepare the night before

Preparing the night before will make your mornings smother.  When you prepare the night before you rushing or forgetting something right before you leave home.

Pick out your clothes,  iron,  prepare lunch,  get your work papers and projects together and place them by the door.  Make sure that anything that you need is all in one spot.  No,  more running around at the last minute to find the things you need.

No more rushing means no more stress.

#2  go to bed early

Going to bed early and at a set time every night will change your life.  Adults need at least 8 hours of sleep every night.  During the sleep process your body is healing,  digesting,  reproducing cells, and maintaining homeostasis.   Without sleep your body cannot do the things it needs to maintain good health.

So,  go to bed early to feel better and look great.

#3  wake up early

Have you ever heard that mornings are the best part of the day?    It’s the part of the day that your mind is most calm.  So,  take advantage of the moment and savor time to yourself and relax.

You’ve prepared the night before so all that’s left to do is enjoy the quiet of the mornings before you start your hectic day.

So do your self a favor by waking up early to no stress morning.

.#4  let the sun in

Let the sun in.  The first thing I do when I wake up in the mornings is open up the blinds.  Get some vitamin D from the sun.  It’s almost as good as coffee for waking you up and giving you energy.

#5  play music while you dress

Music changes your mood and lifts your spirits.  Listening to music is a great way to start your day.  It will instantly wake you up and put a little pep in your step.

Play some music while your putting on make up or getting dressed.  Make sure to chose upbeat music that makes you happy.  You’ll be surprise how much of a difference music makes.

#6  eat a light breakfast

Don’ t forget breakfast.   Without breakfast you can experience brain fog and lethargy.  Be mindful of what your eating also.  A breakfast filled with sugar and carbs can cause a short burst of energy,  but end with a crash.

Start your morning by eating a light breakfast.  Breakfast will start up your metabolism  and give you a burst of  energy.  If you’re not use to eating a large breakfast try eating fruit or having a smoothie.

A simple breakfast is exactly want you need for a great morning.

#7  check the traffic report and weather

This simple step can be the difference between a great day and a bad one.  Check the traffic and weather reports before you set out for the day.  Showing up late and wet is a sure way to start your day badly.  So,  check those reports before you start out for the day.

These 7 tips are a great way to improve your mornings and shake the Morning blues.
