How to Master Your Mornings
Morning is the most important part of your day because it sets up how the rest of the day will unfold. If you get into a great morning routine, you will see yourself having instantly better days. Here are some easy ways to Master Your Mornings and recharge your day:
Set a Sleep Schedule
The first step in mastering your mornings is mastering your sleep schedule. Make sure you are going to bed at the same time every night so that you are well rested for that early wake up time. Stick to your schedule so your body can get accustomed to this new lifestyle.
Even more important than your morning ritual, a nightly ritual is critical in determining how well rested you are to start the next day. Do your best to stay away from screens 30 minutes before you plan on going to bed. By doing this, your body releases Melatonin which tells your body you are ready to go to bed.
Alarm Out of Sight
The snooze button can be a daily battle. Put your alarm out of reach, ideally in another room. This forces you to get up out of bed and start the process of your body waking up. If you have to, set multiple alarms so it doesn’t let you go back to sleep.
Make sure that once you’re up, you define your next move. Turn on the lights and take your first action. This could be brushing your teeth, hoping in the shower, or getting to the kitchen to make breakfast. Whatever it is, make sure you decide on an action and stick to it every day.
