Everybody is familiar with the saying, “Got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.” It generally means that you didn’t have a very good start to the day, and it is the reason you are having trouble later in the day as well.
So, getting your day off to a good start is important, because it can set the tone for the remainder of the day. What kinds of things can you do to get your day off to a good start?
1. Get up early.
In other words, give yourself plenty of time in the morning to get ready for work. Many people cut their getting ready time in the morning really close, allowing themselves just enough time to wash up, dress, and grab a quick cup of coffee before rushing out the door.
But watching the clock and feeling rushed in the morning is not a good way to begin your day. You are immediately building up stress levels and setting the stage for frustration. By giving yourself that extra time, you can feel more relaxed and in control.
2. Get some exercise.
Doing something physical in the morning is a great way to start the day. You get your blood pumping, your muscles working. It wakes you up, makes you feel invigorated. And you should do the kind of exercise that suits you. You don’t have to go out and run a marathon in the morning. Maybe a short walk or a few calisthenics is enough.
3. Get a good breakfast.
This is something most of us have known since childhood. But it really is true – you need a good breakfast to replenish your stores of energy.
4. Get ready the night before.
If you pack a lunch, for example, don’t wait to do it in the morning. Pack it the night before and put it in the refrigerator. It’s one less thing to bother with in the morning. The same is true with your dress. Getting your clothes ready the night before means less stress in the morning.
5. Make a to-do list
This also is a good way to start your day. It gets you focused on what you need to get done.
