To have a good morning, you need to start it right! Then the whole day you will have a good mood and excellent health. What habits should be eradicated so that every day is productive and enjoyable?
Don’t set the alarm again
This is a favorite “game” of many people — to delay getting up for 10 minutes, then another 5. You just start to fall asleep, and the alarm goes off again. This is a huge stress for the body, so when you finally get out of bed, you feel overwhelmed and sleepy.
If you find it difficult to leave a warm bed immediately after waking up, give yourself a few minutes to stretch, stretch your muscles and finally wake up. Do not set the alarm again — then you will have to overcome sleep.
It is interesting!
Philosopher Henry David Thoreau from America is sure that a person should evaluate his health and psychological state based on how he meets the morning.
Don’t take hot showers
Hot water jets are relaxing and cause the only desire — to return to bed and sleep a little more. Such a shower reduces the heart rate, calms and does not at all set up for productive activity.
It is better to rinse the body with cool water or take a contrast shower. This will help to regain the lost tone and work fruitfully.
Did you know?
The ideal time for a cup of coffee is around 9.30 am. Then the production of cortisol, which invigorates the body naturally, will not be disturbed. And remember the important rule: first breakfast — then coffee!
Don’t remember the past
Morning is a small beginning of a new life. Therefore, there is no need to remember past defeats and negative experiences. Leave these events in the past and think about the present and the future. When you mentally cling to the events of bygone days, you miss moments that will never return. This is how you immerse yourself in negativity and live the day on a minor note.
Train yourself in the morning to think only about the good. Over a cup of aromatic coffee, you can dream about how productive this day will be. Imagine what pleasant surprises he has prepared for you.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make sure it’s nutritious and healthy. And to save time in the morning, cook it in the evening. Then you will not have hastily prepared sandwiches for breakfast.
Don’t watch the news
Of course, you always want to be aware of what is happening in the world. But, unfortunately, news often causes negative emotions. Why start the day with indignation, doubt, and sometimes fear? In addition, the news captivates and takes invaluable morning time, which should be spent with benefit.
If in the morning you want to get your “portion” of information, it is better to read interesting literature, motivational books, success stories. This will inspire you to exploits and give you a positive charge.
In order to please the reflection in the mirror in the morning, you need to choose the right pillow. It is better to give preference to orthopedic — it provides convenience and comfort. A pillowcase with copper ions is an excellent prevention of various rashes on the face.
Don’t make a big decision
Often people feel a little slow in the morning. Therefore, do not make important decisions and do not take on complex tasks until you have a good breakfast. Give yourself time to fully wake up.
This is useful!
Nutritionists advise eating a spoonful of honey every morning. It “starts” metabolic processes and helps to wake up faster.
Do not open emails and social networks
Even if there are important working moments. First, the morning toilet, breakfast — and only then work. As a rule, checking your mailbox and social networks takes longer than you originally planned: read messages, reply to everyone, view the feed. This process fascinates and reduces performance.
Get into the habit of keeping track of your friends’ updates after you’ve done all the important things. Then you will not spend a lot of time on social networks.
Don’t Check Accounts
Checking invoices, receipts, and other payments is always stressful. Especially if the amounts are impressive. Set aside time during the day to slowly sort through all the deductions. Then you will not be nervous that you are late for work and did not have time to have breakfast.
Did you know?
The American Psychological Association has concluded that analyzing finances is one of the biggest stressors in a person’s life.
Don’t make big purchases
Sometimes in the morning you want to start a new life and treat yourself to an expensive purchase. Moreover, online stores are ready to receive you at any time. But it pays to be careful. First of all, you should have enough time to study all the characteristics of the product. Hurry is not the best shopping companion.
Postpone shopping for a while — you can continue when you are free and energetic. Then spend your hard-earned money with the maximum benefit.
Don’t play online games
In the age of gadgets, computer games have become a familiar entertainment. But in the morning you should not waste time on them. It is better to stay in the real world and focus on current and urgent tasks. This will help plan the day, set goals and outline ways to achieve them.
And you can play while you are stuck in a traffic jam or just have a free minute. Then computer games will not cause addiction and will not worsen the quality of life.
Do not start an argument — this is not the best start to the day. After an unpleasant discussion, you will feel tired and angry. If a debate is unavoidable, try to reschedule it for the daytime. Then you can finally wake up and adjust to the rhythm of the day.
To restrain yourself from getting into an argument, even if you are provoked, take control of your emotions. Calmly argue your position and do more pleasant things.
Plan your morning so that you always have time to be alone with yourself, collect your thoughts and think about the upcoming day.
Ekaterina Egorova, psychologist
People who start their day the wrong way live gray lives devoid of pleasure. Every morning they are charged with negative energy and carry it to the masses. Once you know yourself, it’s time to acquire new habits that will make every day bright and unforgettable.
To make it easier to wake up, always plan something pleasant for the morning or just treat yourself to a delicious breakfast, your favorite sweet. Look for a stimulus that will make you leave the bed easily and painlessly.
In the evening, plan the coming day — then in the morning you will not grab onto everything at the same time. Pick up your clothes, clean your shoes, charge your mobile phone — prepare everything you need to save time in the morning.
Always do the most unpleasant and difficult task first. Then the rest of the day can be devoted to more pleasant things and spend it in a good mood.
Affirmations will help set you up for a productive day. These are affirmative positive attitudes that affect the subconscious. Speak them mentally or out loud, set yourself up that you have already succeeded, and the day has brought only positive events. Affirmations should not contain the particle “not”, formulate them in an affirmative way.
