It’s the domino effect.

The first few hours of your day set the stage for the remainder of your day. Today, I want to share with you 5 do-able steps to setting your day up for success. When you are done reading, leave a comment below with your favorite part of your morning routine, I want to know!

Wake up, slay, repeat.. your guide:

  • Open your blinds. Let the natural light in. Studies have shown that our eyes and brains function more optimally with natural lighting. Benefits also include: the increase of Vitamin D which boosts overall wellness, the regulation of our circadian sleep patterns, and a decrease in your energy bill!
  • Spend 2-5 minutes giving yourself one goal for the day. What is one thing you can do today that is a small step towards your goals.
  • Smile What are you excited for today? What is one thing you are grateful for? Think about these things. Look at a quote, read an inspirational passage — do something that makes you smile.
  • Make someone else smile. Send a friend a good morning text, you will no question brighten their day.  Compliment someone. SMILE at someone, they will smile back. Encouraging others is key to having a positive outlook on life.
  • Move. I always workout in the morning because it not only releases endorphins, but also wakes me up to conquer the day. If you don’t have time to workout, just MOVE— go for a walk, stretch, do some jumping jacks.
  • Recite your affirmations/goals. Spend just a few moments grounding yourself. What are your goals? What are you grateful for? You can make a sort of motto out of this to continually remind yourself throughout the day as well. Can you guess mine?;) You Make You !!!

Spare just a few minutes each morning to go through these steps and your entire day will be set up for success.  Now, what is your favorite part of your morning routine? Comment below!

See you tomorrow…
