Starting your morning the right way

Do you sometimes feel sluggish or inefficient in the mornings? Does getting into the swing of things take more time than it should? Let’s re-evaluate how you’re doing things! Learn how to maximise your time and begin the day with a bang┬áby reading my tips for starting your morning the right way.

 

Work your mind and/or body

Starting the morning with some form of exercise or meditation is the best way to energise your body and activate your mind. Wake yourself up with an early morning run, walk or yoga session, or hit the gym if that’s your preferred form of exercise. Once you get the heart pumping or the mind relaxing, you’ll be in the right frame to start your day effectively.

 

Refresh

Drink lots of liquid in the morning to hydrate your body. I like a glass of warm water with lemon juice, but have a green tea if you aren’t a citrus fan. This will also help flush out any nasty toxins and keep your skin from drying out. Try to drink 2-3 glasses before you even get to work.

 

Dress smartly

Dress like you mean it and you’re going to feel great. Get your outfit ready the night before so you don’t waste time deciding what to wear. Don’t rush your makeup and hair – you want to walk out the door feeling confident and prepared. It’s all about dressing like the winner you know you are.

 

Brainfood

This one is so important! Make sure you eat a good breakfast before you start work. A bowl of porridge with coconut sugar, muesli with low fat yogurt and fresh fruit or poached eggs on toast are fabulous healthy options – and quick to make, too. Fuel your body and brain by giving them energy, allowing them to work to their full potential.

 

Multitask

When you can do two things at once without adding extra stress to your life, give it a go. I like to check my emails over breakfast, which means I don’t waste more time doing it later on. Have a think about what you could be doing at once and see if you can make it work comfortably.
