Do you need to push yourself out of bed every day? Do you find it annoying to get up each morning? You’re not the only ones! Most people find it a torture to get up in the morning and get to work. It really makes them put in a lot of effort to get out of bed. Although everyone cannot be a morning person but getting up in the morning gives you a lot of time to do all your work. You can organize your day and plan ahead. But is it really that tough to get a great start? Not really! Of course, you don’t want to start your day at noon and crib about not finishing your tasks till night. Apparently, the first half of the day is most productive. After lunch, most people feel tired and can’t do as much.
So, here are 5 ways to give a great start to your day:
Clear your thoughts
As soon as you wake up just sit in your bed for 5-10 minutes. There is no need to start rushing uselessly. Just close your eyes and relax. Enjoy the silence of the morning and clear your thoughts. Meditate and start your day on a positive note. Thank god for giving you this life and the opportunity to see such a lovely morning. You shouldn’t take life for granted. It is a gift!
Quench your thirst
Drink at least 4-5 glasses of water before you visit the washroom. Since our body is essentially made up of water, you must drink as much water in the morning as possible. This helps to remove all the toxins from the body. When you attend to your ablutions, all the wastes from the previous day will get washed away from the body.
Stretch your body
A little exercise and stretching early in the morning is very important to maintain good health. Just stretch yourself and move your body. It makes you feel active and also lifts your mood. You can also practice yoga. It not only straightens the body; it also helps to cure various diseases. To many people, it makes them feel in charge of their body and their life! Pretty powerful, eh?
Fuel up your tummy
You just can’t work on an empty stomach! Eat a healthy and nutritious breakfast. Never miss the first meal of the day. It is the most important meal of the day. If you don’t eat a wholesome meal in the morning, you’ll end up feeling weak and lethargic the whole day. It something that gives you satiety value so that you don’t indulge in unnecessary snacking.
Envision your day
Take 5 minutes to ponder over the tasks that need to be attended to. Prioritize and plan your day methodically. If you work according to a plan, you’re most likely to finish all the tasks. You can even jot down the list of tasks and cut them once they are done. It will give you a lot of mental satisfaction. Who wants to panic and get anxiety attacks anyway?
You only need to take the first step and ignore those sleep pangs. Once you do that, a wonderful day awaits you!
