Waking up can be a drag and sometimes no matter how much you want to, it just gets super hard to start the day with a smile

Well here are 5 steps you can take to “Blow Away the Negative” in the mornings and help you zone in to having a productive day


Wake Up at YOUR Right Time

You function the best when you’re up without being told or being forced up by an alarm. If you need to be up early, the best way to do it is simply… going to sleep early. The more you train yourself to do this the more your body will get used to it… and it will be part of YOUR body clock


Prepare the Night Before

Prepare the night before to eliminate morning decision-making. Find the clothes you want to wear tomorrow, today. You have no idea how much stress you will relieve


Create a Morning Routine

Here’s an example of a Morning Routine

Productivity coach Zack Sexton’s morning routine looks like this:

  1. Water
  2. Cuddles ()
  3. Coffee
  4. Meditation
  5. Read something inspirational
  6. Shower
  7. Look at calendar
  8. Start the first journal entry (including prompts about something learned, things to be grateful for, and what to focus on for the day)

Rituals make your mornings more streamlined


Move Around and Hydrate

Water and Stretching can go a long way, it helps you freshen up how you feel inside and gets your body ready for movement
