5 things to do before 9am to kickstart your workday
Do you feel lazy and tired some mornings before work? Bad habits can ruin your day and destroy your productivity. Good habits, on the other hand, will make you happier and leave you feeling energized throughout your workday. Here are some easy morning routine habits to try:
Drink a glass of water with lemon
Start your morning with a glass of lemon water. Lemon is full of vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants, which help with digestion, fighting disease and strengthening your cells. Squeeze half a lemon into your glass of water and you will feel a difference in your energy!
Exercise for 10 minutes
Get your body moving, even if only for a few minutes. You will feel more energized, more focused, in a better mood, and your body will feel better overall. You will find plenty of short exercise routines on YouTube. Whether it be yoga, cardio or a strengthening workout, your body and mind will thank you!
Have a hearty breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it can really affect your mood and energy level. Make sure you have a balanced breakfast that consists of some protein, carbs, fats, and some fruits or vegetables.
No phones, no emails
Moments of peace are essential. They allow you to reset and connect with yourself. Start your day away from your devices (phone, laptop, etc.), and disconnect from the world before you jump into your workday.
Create a to-do list
Each morning, set a plan for the day. Plotting out the most important tasks will help you to prioritize and better manage your time. You will feel more confident going into the workday, more productive, and also accomplished at the end of the day when you’re able to check your tasks off the list.
