Did you know that the way you start your day could also define the way you end it?
Doing things in a hurry and running to get to work will have a negative impact on your
state of mind.
With these simple hacks, you can learn how to improve your day even before leaving
Having a morning routine will train your brain to think that all is under control, so
you’ll even feel more confident in your forces, in no time!
1.Wake Up Early
Set your alarm clock at least an hour earlier and you’ll be surprised to discover that we’re
much more productive in the mornings, rather than at night.
During the first hours after you wake up, you feel energized, and many people choose to do
their errands, take a walk or even clean their house before going to work.
This way, once you get off to your job, you’ll know that all is in order at home, so you can
just chill and enjoy a movie when you come back from work.
2.Exercise for 15 Minutes
Move your workouts into the morning and stop skipping them because you don’t have the time
or you’re tired.
15 minutes of stretching, doing cardio or lifting weights will also have a positive impact on your
state of mind.

3.Focus on the Positive Things in Life
Take a few minutes every day and meditate about what’s going on in your life right now.
You can do this in the mornings, when your brain will focus easier and also give you
some much-needed clarity.
Try to be objective and analyze what goes well in your life and what could need some
Also, be thankful for the good things.
Don’t let them pass so easily and appreciate if someone has helped you out or been there
for you when you were going through a rough time.
4.Be Productive, Not Busy
Nowadays, everybody’s busy and lacks the time to do everything they would like to do.
The problem is that there’s a big difference between being productive and being busy.
For example, it’s one thing to make the bed in the morning, and another one to start rearranging
Try to focus on what’s really important for the day to come and leave the details for when you
have the time.
Don’t stress yourself with small things, and prioritize everything according to their importance.
We’ve heard all our lives that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and somehow
we’ve become immune to it.
Still, this saying is true, because what you put in your body can give you energy and proteins, or have
the opposite effect.
Make sure that you have the time to at least make a smoothie for yourself, and preferably have some
cereals as well.
Give your body the means to keep you going for the rest of the day.
6.Listen to Loud Music
Loud music that fills us with energy will also make us feel empowered and ready to take on the world.
This doesn’t mean that you should turn up the stereo with rock music at 5 AM in the morning, but
that you should do your exercise routine listening to energetic music that will lift your mood.
Just like blues music can make us feel more romantic, an alert rhythm will boost our spirit.
So make a playlist that will set a positive mood for the day to come!
7.Wear Power Clothes
They’re called “power clothes” not because they’ll make you like Superman, but because they’ll
instill a sense of power.
Wearing clothes that fit you well will trick your brain into believing that you are ready, you are
prepared and most of all, that you are a confident person.
Leave the loose clothes for when you’re cleaning the house and find in your closet the ones that will
allow you to walk with your head held high.
Try following these easy tricks every day, and you’ll soon see that the way you begin your day will set
the tone for the rest of it as well.
As a final tip, if you’re not an early bird, try to prepare your clothes and breakfast the night before,
so you’ll save some time in the morning.
