4 Ways To Make Mornings More Manageable

Do you ever have those days when you rush around in the morning, spilling coffee on your wrinkled blouse while putting on two different socks? It's likely that you've had days like that more often than not, but luckily we are here to help you! Keep reading for the extremely easy ways to make your mornings more manageable - an easier and more pleasing start to the day -  guaranteed!


Don't Jump Out of Bed
It may be your typical reaction to your morning alarm clock, but jumping out of bed causes the blood to rush to your head and can even cause you to faint. Sitting up and stretching out your limbs is the better way to re-set your body. Take a couple of deep breaths, adjust your eyes and climb out of the comforters to greet the day.

The Most Important Meal of the Day

You have heard it a million times, and it's true - starting the day with a well-balanced meal is key to a positive start to your day that will carry you through to the afternoon hours. You will be more alert, and a protein shake or some oatmeal with fresh bananas diced on top are both options that will allow you to work well into the day- and then some!

Keep a List
If you make it a regular everyday activity to sit down with a bowl of whole grain cereal or some steel cut oats and make a list of what you need to accomplish in the AM hours, you will set a precedent for yourself and give yourself a mental acitvity to complete each day. A schedule helps you set up and accomplish your daily tasks, not to mention give you something to start everyday with! The repetition will help keep your days similar and your body clock on track.

Count Your Blessings
It may sound cheesy, but no matter what stressors may haunt you before bed or in the early AM hours, there has to be at least one thing in your life that you are truly thankful for. Remember this person, place or thing in the morning and let it carry you through the day. There is something to be said for the power of positive thinking. You can truly make your day better just by starting it on a high note!
