8 Ways to Start Your Day off Right ...


Nothing makes me start my day off wrong worse than waking up late, so sometimes I need to be reminded of ways to start your day off right, despite circumstances such as a missed alarm tone.

The morning time is the best way to set the tone for your whole day.

Certain choices you make during this time can either drain or enhance your energy, mood, and productivity during the day.2

Here are my favorite ways to start your day off right, so you don't find yourself in a tizzy over the small things or big things, such as burning your clothes with the iron or spilling your breakfast in a hurry.

I speak from personal experience on both of those ladies, so I’m not judging anyone!

1. Get Moving

Get Moving

One of the best ways to start your day off right is to get moving.

Yes, I’m talking about exercise here.

It is so easy for me to linger in bed “for just five more minutes” as I tell myself.

Then, before I know it, I’m an hour behind and stressed out like someone the first day of a new job!2

Eliminate the stress and just get outta bed already!

I hop on my treadmill or immediately head outside for an easy but productive walk, followed by 10 minutes, or more if I have time, of stretching and yoga.

This relaxes me, gets my blood pumping, keeps my waistline in check, and makes me feel more confident in my job, home and with everyone around me all day long.

It isn’t easy to do, but once you start, you’ll quickly see benefits and become addicted to the positive energy it brings.

2. Write down Your Thoughts

Write down Your Thoughts

Many people write down their thoughts, prayers or to-do lists at night before bed, but that can create stress and disrupt your sleep if you’re having a tough time or have a lot on your agenda.

Instead, take 5-10 minutes when you first wake up or while you’re having breakfast to jot down your thoughts and to-do list for the day.

If you’re using this time to write out your prayers I recommend doing it when you first wake up, which is important to do in the quiet and will help create a sense of calm before you even jump out of bed.

This allows you to be in tune with what you’re concerned about and what your day entails before you leave your house.2

You’ll feel more put-together all day long and won’t have to worry about forgetting that 3 p.m.

appointment or that you need to stop for milk on the way home.

I find this especially helpful for reminding me to call someone on their birthday!
