Don’t look at your phone
You’re overloading your mind and possibly starting your day in a negative mindset if you start your day scrolling through the news or your social media feeds. When you engage with this type of content before you’re completely up or out of bed, it’s easy to fall into the trap of mindlessly reading content that appears to be useful but is actually a passive activity.
Read a Book
Many people acknowledge that reading before bed is beneficial as it calms the mind and prepares the body for sleep. They ignore the advantages of considering reading in their morning routine.
Rather than scrolling through social media in the morning, reading a book or an article instead boosts cognitive activity in the brain, which is a great technique to prepare yourself for the challenges of the day.
Try Positive Affirmations
Positive affirmations, whether spoken aloud or written down, may help you gain confidence, overcome negativity, and improve your relationships in the long run.
You can come up with your own affirmations or use any of the following:
- I am intelligent, powerful, capable, and kind.
- I am deserving, appreciative, and fortunate.
- Today is going to be a wonderful day.
Put on a happy face
Look in the mirror and smile at yourself, even if it feels foolish at first. Smiling causes endorphins to be released, which makes you feel happy. This two-second habit might give you the boost you need to start your day on a positive mindset.
Drink Water First
Nutritionists recommend drinking water first thing in the morning instead of tea or coffee. They suggest having a glass of water next to your bed and drinking eight ounces when you first wake up. Water is necessary because it aids in the digestion of food, the absorption of nutrients, and the elimination of waste items.
Eat a nutritious breakfast
For many people, breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it provides the body with the energy it needs to go through the day. Therefore, even if you’re not hungry, you should eat and/or drink something. Stay away from heavy breakfasts (such bacon, eggs, and pancakes) and go for something lighter and more energizing instead (like a smoothie bowl or a vegetable scramble)
Listen To Your Favorite Song
We all feel that happiness running through our bodies and that our problems seem to fade away when our favorite song is surprisingly played in a bar. Many researchers have long since demonstrated that listening to music you enjoy causes the production of the happiness hormone called dopamine. Including your favorite playlist in your morning routine positively affects your mood.
Have Your Goals And Vision In Mind
What propels you to get out of bed each day? What is your driving force, your vision, and your life’s purpose? Whether it’s the World Cup’s top scorer, the best pizza maker of the year, or the farm’s dream, Visualize your objectives. Display them prominently and read them every morning. This way, you can absorb it and keep your big picture in mind. You’re also more likely to take daily actions that will help you achieve your goal.
