If you are not a morning person, then am sure it’s difficult to start your day in a positive attitude. However, there are some things that you can do in the morning and have positive energy for the rest of the day. You can just perform simple stretches or just take a 10 minutes’ walk and everything else will be okay. You can do one or two things the moment you open your eyes as a routine to get your body reenergized.
There’s enough evidence that morning people are more positive than night owls. If you are looking to be one of those positive and productive individuals, then hold on.
1. Plan for the day early
If you want to start your day positively, then you have to spare some time the previous day and write down some important things that you want to accomplish the coming day. However, you should keep the list very limited in order to get the most important things done. When you are getting to bed, you are getting to bed with the list in mind. This will be the first motivation.
When the day comes, don’t start by doing less important things before you tackle the ones you already have on the list. Don’t add a longer to do list. This is one of the main points when you are seeking to reduce the stress in the coming morning.
You need to wake up knowing what thing you will do at what time. If you want to be in your garden the next day to accomplish one or two things, then you need to prepare the night before by packing your lunch and doing some basic chores. If you are needed in an office, you have to do the same-pack your lunch and prepare what to wear.
2. Wake up early
Waking up early will reduce the tension of having to rush to do things. What this means is that you can either set an alarm to ensure you wake up early. Maybe 2 hours or 3 before you leave the house. You will have enough time to deal with everything.
You can also send morning wishes to your loved ones, this will make them better start their day too and also gives you a positive energy.
3. Take ten minutes mediating before you get out of bed
After opening your eyes you need to spare some time before getting out of bed for mediation. The first thing is to prepare your body before you wake up. Spare some time to meditate and take deep breathe. This will allow your belly and chest to expand. You can take deep breath for a count of 1-5.
Listen at how the breathe enters your body and also notice how it leaves. You also need to listen to the pause as you breathe. When you do this every morning you wake up. You will get a sense of peace and also give you a good head space before you leave your bed.
4. Take some time in the shower
After getting out of bed, you need to go to the shower but don’t rush. By simply listening to the drops of water hitting the ground, you will create some sense of peace. Take time to feel the water on your skin. It’s a very nice and an amazing way of creating a sense of peace.
5. Go for a walk
It is always imperative for you to take a 30 minutes’ walk before you get ready for the day. This is one of the methods of ensuring your body concentrates the right way. Take a walk from the house maybe to the shop or anywhere else.
6. Focus on your goal
I bet you already know the reason why you are getting ready for the day. Maybe you have something that you want to accomplish before the end of the day. This is exactly what am talking about. Focus on that.
7. Eliminate your worries and negative thoughts
It’s very obvious that when you want to do something, you have worries. Maybe you are worried that you will not be able to deliver your best or you will not accomplish it. Before you leave the house, take time to focus on the positive and eliminate negative thoughts.
