Mornings set the cue for the rest of the day. If you slouch around, sleep in, or spend half an hour scrolling through your phone, you’re setting yourself up for failure in the rest of the day. Here’s our Three Things to get you off to a good start:
-Get Going: The most important thing to do in your morning is to get started. The hardest moment is getting out of bed. If you hesitate, give in to the temptation, and give yourself slack right off the bat, you’re setting a tone of laziness for your whole day. Wake up, get up, and get going quickly. That sets an efficient, productive mode for the day right at the get-go. The best thing to do is get up, start moving, and make sure you shower before you start tasks. Showering is a reset cue for most of our bodies, and it helps to clear the head and get the body activated. If you don’t shower every day, try getting into a routine where you just wash your face. It’s the most important thing to wake up before you start the day.
-Get focused: One of the big things to make sure you’re doing once you’re up and about is staying focused and alert. Avoid your phone and other devices for at least an hour, if possible. You’ll distance yourself from the “need” to check things, you’ll avoid slipping into a drone scrolling state, and you’ll let your mind catch up to the business of the day. Again, you’re setting the tone for the next 12 hours. Make it a point to stay clear-headed, and keep the obsessive technologies at bay.
-Get active: If you’ve got the time, working out early in the morning is an incredibly good habit to get in. You’ll spark your metabolism, and burn off more fat that you might later in the day. It’s also a no-fail way to get your heart and brain fully activated. Plus, it’s great self-discipline. Make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruit and get a good amount of protein in your breakfast to refuel for your busy and productive day.
