Tips To Start Your Day Off Right

There’s nothing worse than waking up on the wrong side of the bed. If you are constantly waking up feeling as if you are drowning in this world and want nothing more than to crawl back in bed, hide under the covers and not come out for another five hours, then you need to learn how to start your day off right. Today I am sharing 7 tips to start your day off right so that you can be certain each day is a new day full of inspiration and energy galore.

7 tips to start you day

  1. Don’t Hit Snooze – Whatever you do, do not hit that snooze button. This little button is to be thought of as the enemy from now on and not an option. When you choose to wake up upon immediate ring of your alarm clock, your body starts to develop a routine of learning to be awake at the same time every morning without much effort. 
  2. Prepare The Night Before – Choose your outfit for the next day, right down to the shoes. You don’t want to waste time looking for accessories or a piece of clothing in the morning. The less you have to worry about, the less hectic it will be.
  3. Reflect Upon Grateful Moments – Take time each morning to jot down a few things that you are grateful for. Learn to immediately start your day off right by focusing on positive areas in your life. We can all find something to be grateful for, even if you are simply grateful for waking up to carry on another day.
  4. Set Daily Goals – Much like creating a to-do list, you should set daily goals to meet each day. This helps your mind focus on forward progression and on solutions versus problems. Learn to create a list of things that must be accomplished, finished or purchase for each day as the day arrives.
  5. Eat a Good Breakfast – Every good day starts best when you nourish your body and mind. Think about making some diet changes to incorporate some fruits into your morning breakfast routine. Fruits will give you natural energy to hold you through most of the morning hours into lunch time. If it helps, get your breakfast together a night.
  6. Listen To Music – Create a morning playlist. Something that will get you pumped up and motivated to start your day. I have playlists for different times of day, even carpool.
  7. Shower and Get Dressed – The longer you wait to get showered and dressed, the less chance you have of enjoying your day. If you truly want to start your day off right, then you need to be certain to get showered and dressed within an hour of wake up to make the most of your morning hours.

There are a lot of little changes you can make to your morning routine that will help ensure you start your day off right. If you start to implement just a few of these tips I shared today, you will find that every passing day gets better as you continually focus on starting your day off right.

What habits do you have that help you start you day off on the right foot?

    Breakfast is key in this household! If I don’t eat breakfast, my day doesn’t go as well. It’s been statistically proven, hahahha 🙂

    Listening to music always helps me out. And no, I’ve never hit the snooze button. I don’t get the point. When my alarm goes off, I get up, even if I’m grumbling about it.

    I always hit my snooze button, at least 2 to 3 times lol and sometimes even skip breakfast. So I will have to try these tips to see the effect it will have on my day. Call it an experiment 😉

    These tips are perfect. If people would start with just one at a time and work on it until it’s become a habit, they’ll have a better morning in no time.

    Definitely setting daily goals helps make a successful day. Making sure I have everything prepared for my kids the night before helps make my own mornings run smooth which makes my day get off to its best start.

    Love these ideas. I really need to quit hitting the snooze button. It’s so hard during Winter when it’s cold.

    I’ve been preparing the night before, even though my husband wants to sit and hang out. Easily just getting the dishes done before bed makes my morning easier. I love not having to clean when I’m rushing to get out the door.

    I am definitely one to hit snooze though I use my phone as my wake up call nowadays. Yes to music in the morning. Definitely has the tendency for waking me up and keeping me walking in a positive nature.

    One of the best things I’ve done to start my morning is to prepare every single thing the night before! That way I’m not running around frantically all morning.
