The first thing you do each day will set the tone for everything else. From the moment you open your eyes to the time you arrive for work, every action is a puzzle piece that will provide the roadmap for the day. But if you make sure you have all of your ducks in a row before you head to work, you can win the day. So how can you create a morning routine that will help you be more successful in the office? Here are some easy to follow tips.
Create a bedtime routine.
The real key to having a great morning often starts with having a great night. Creating a bedtime routine will help you sleep better and wake refreshed and able to start the day off right. Avoid technology right before bed. Don’t eat anything after 8 p.m. Start your routine a half an hour before you want to be asleep. Make sure your bed and bedroom are comfortable.
A good morning is also often attributed to a great night’s sleep. Make sure that you’re getting plenty of it every night. While we tend to reward people who stay up late or work all night, the human body wasn’t designed to function without the proper sleep. Getting 6 to 8 hours a night, or sometimes more depending on your personal needs, will help you function better.
Avoid the snooze button.
We’ve all done it. We’re comfortable and happy in bed so as soon as that alarm sounds, our hands hit that big snooze button for another few minutes. But this can be your worst enemy for a productive morning. To avoid the temptation, put your alarm clock out of reach so you have to get out of bed to turn it off. The best thing to win the day is to get up and get moving.
Exercise every day.
And when we say get moving, we mean that literally. Many people don’t think they have time for physical exercise, but the most successful people consider this an essential part of their day. Build it into your morning so you know that you have to do it before you leave for the office. Get outside, if you can, to start your day more energized.
Choose a healthy breakfast.
You also don’t want to skip breakfast. Many people do or, if they eat, they pull out a quick snack that doesn’t have the right fuel for the body and the brain. Avoid sugary cereal and go for a solid morning protein like eggs or egg whites. And you can certainly have a cup of coffee, just try not to become dependent on that caffeine boost to kick start your mornings.
