Starting the day well can really help you feel a lot brighter and help you achieve more. Here are some tips to do so and start your day on a high note.
Put Your Phone Aside
Close to 75 percent of Americans sleep with their phones by their side (either on a nightstand or, in many instances, with them in bed) The first thing most people do when they wake up, even before saying hello to their companion or getting out of bed, is pick up their phone and start checking messages and going through their profiles on social media.
This reflexive action, though small, may seem innocuous. However, it could quickly impact your day negatively. Checking your phone early in the morning could trigger stress instantly, drawing you into an avoidable vortex of commitments such as planning your to-do list or replying to emails. While all these are essential things to do, looking into them immediately after you’ve woken up could leave you stressed and worried. It’s best to try and be more mindful initially in the day.
As such, consider making it a habit not to pick up your tablet or phone until you have completed your morning routine and, if possible, after you’ve had your breakfast. One way to curb the urge to constantly check your phone at night and immediately after you’ve woken up is to set your phone to airplane mode in the evening just before you sleep. If you cannot resist the temptation to check your phone, avoid using it as an alarm clock and keep it in another room or store it in a drawer. By doing this simple action, you will find that you start your days more relaxed and in a good mood.
Wake Your Muscles Up
Waking your muscles up doesn’t necessarily mean sprinting in the park or working out for over an hour at the gym. There are light and simple exercises that you could perform for 5 to 10 minutes each morning to wake your muscles up, stimulate blood flow, and activate your body. Do activities that make you feel good, like taking a short walk, performing some yoga poses, or stretching out in the living room. These simple yet effective actions will provide you with a boost of energy that will keep you going for the rest of the day.
Think More Positively
Take a couple of minutes each morning and listen to a podcast about health or wellness, read a book that makes you feel great, write your thoughts down in a notebook, do a short meditation, or say some positive affirmations aloud the list is endless. The crucial thing is that you do something that will have positively affect the rest of the day, and that makes you happy. If you are to give a presentation or work on a big project or have an important meeting to attend and this is stressing you, use those few minutes or hours to visualize the event and imagine it playing out smoothly and successfully for you.

Do Not Forget, Always Eat a Healthy Breakfast
No morning routine is complete if it doesn’t include a healthy breakfast. Breakfast is fundamentally the foundation for having a good day. Eating balanced meals in the morning won’t only make it easier for you to concentrate; it will also leave you feeling better about yourself while giving you the energy you need to face the day. A healthy breakfast will also help you avoid cravings, mood swings, and memory problems later in the day while stabilizing sugar levels in your body and even reduces your risk of contracting cardiovascular diseases.
