You would be hard-pressed to find anybody who wakes up in the morning and says to themselves they DON’T want to have a good day. For the vast majority of us, experiencing a pleasant, productive, and fulfilling day is the desired result of each day. However, what many people don’t realize is what you do in the morning can have a dramatic impact on how the rest of your day unfolds – good or bad. This is something the world’s top performers all realize and is something you can benefit from.
So, how do you ensure you have a good day? It begins with your morning routine, and below we are going to talk about some habits that will help you get your day started on the right track.
Wake up early
If you want to have a good day, make sure your day starts at a reasonable hour. After all, how do you expect to get a lot done and have a fulfilling day if it begins in the afternoon? Try to establish a regular nighttime routine where you go to bed at the same time each night so you can acclimate your body to waking up earlier and be ready to tackle the day.
It’s all about routine
What do you need to do in the morning? What should you be doing? These are some of the basic questions you should ask yourself, and the answers will serve as a baseline for your routine. You want your morning routine to set you up for success, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to do all the things you need to do. This is where waking up early is so useful.
Don’t forget about your mental health
Life, work, family, friends, relationships – you name it, life is stressful. However, you need to make sure you are mentally ready to tackle the day, and much as you’d stretch before working out, you need to stretch your mind to handle what the day might throw at you. Try reading a little each morning, journaling or meditation. You’d be amazed at how far-reaching a little mental clarity and relaxation can go when it comes to having a good day.
Most people know what they want to get done in a day. However, when the day starts, often priorities shift, and attention is diverted. This is why you should take some time each morning to plan not only what you want to accomplish, but when and how you want to do it. This will allow you to block out times for the most important things and ensure that nothing gets forgotten in the process.
