Drink warm lemon water

After a good night’s sleep kick off the day with a nice warm drink to jump start your system and start hydrating your body once again. By adding lemon to the hot water this will activate your digestive system.

Stay active – move around

move

Would you like to feel alive and full of energy? Start with a stretch and then go for a run/walk or simply embark on an enjoyable exercise routine. By doing some movement first thing in the morning you will feel more energetic, be less stressed and will thus clear your mind in preparation for the day ahead.

Think positively

By thinking positive and looking forward to the day’s activities you will pave the way. If you think of a positive statement or spend a couple of minutes in stillness you will lift your mood and put a smile on your face.

Create a To-do list

Create an actionable to do list for the week ahead and assign tasks for each day, with each task assigned to the day of the week you are most likely to perform it. Then put the day’s tasks according to the order of the day and level of importance, i.e. when during the day you will be carrying out the task. Consult your list every morning and evaluate the tasks’ importance.

Eat A Healthy Breakfast

Healthy-Breakfast

If you are hungry you will think and perform less well and you will also be less fun to be with. Besides breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it breaks the fasting of the night and starts your metabolism. So go ahead, start your day with a healthy breakfast.
