Tips to Get Your Morning Started Right

Waking up in the morning should be one of the best parts of the day. It gives you a fresh start on whatever exciting plans you have for the day ahead. But sometimes, it seems like your morning just doesn't get started off right. You might find yourself without breakfast, late for work and rushing to get everything done before you miss your train- but this doesn't have to be how it goes every time!

Here are some ways that might help get your mornings started right!

Develop a positive morning routine

A positive morning routine sets you up for a productive day. It could be anything from drinking your coffee while brushing your teeth to meditating or journaling on your way to work. Developing this type of routine will help you get going every morning and feel great throughout the day.

Eat a balanced breakfast

Eating a good breakfast sets you up for success. It gives your body the energy and nutrition it needs to get through your morning, and it helps you stay on track with those healthy habits you've been trying to stick to.

Avoid using your phone in bed

Studies show that using your phone or tablet in bed can lead to sleep deprivation, disrupted cycles and other issues connected with interrupted sleep cycle or waking up for the wrong reasons. It also means that you are more likely to check your phone and this could mean checking an unwanted text or email. Call your partner, girlfriend or boyfriend, instead of texting them. It will help you sleep better.

Pack a healthy lunch the night before

Packing your lunch for work saves money and time, but can cause stress if you're rushing through it in the morning. Try to make lunch the night before so that it is ready for you in the morning and can save some stress from your morning start.

Pack for Work The Night Before

In addition to packing your lunch, you can pack other items needed for the following day the night before. Make sure your work bag is ready to go with headphones, a great coffee warmer to keep your cup of joe warm and a power bank to charge your phone.

Think about transportation options

If you need public transportation, always make sure that you have time to get in and out of the train station in case you miss your train. If you need to take a bus, plan ahead and pack your own snacks so that you don't get hungry on the way to work. It will also help keep you energized for the day's responsibilities.

Get enough sleep

Getting an adequate amount of sleep helps your body and mind start your day off strong. So, if you're waking up tired, falling asleep late or having trouble getting out of bed each morning, you might need to take a look at the amount of sleep you get every night.

Plan Ahead

Make sure to plan ahead and prep for the morning the night before. Some suggestions are setting your coffee maker ahead of time, packing your lunch the night before and making sure you have everything you need to complete your morning routine.

The key to starting off on the right foot is planning ahead. It can help ensure that you're on time for work or school, make sure your breakfast is balanced and healthy and that you feel great all day long!

Conclusion

By following these few simple tips, you will be able to start your morning off right. The more you practice a good morning routine, the easier it will become and you will be able to do it every day without thinking about it. Try to have a label for your positive mornings, so that you know when to start getting yourself ready for the day ahead!

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
