Start Your Day The Right Way

As the weather is picking up, our mornings are becoming brighter, and many of us feel less inclined to stay in bed. Unless, of course, we start our day the wrong way. We all know that getting up on the wrong side of the bed can have a huge knock-on effect when it comes to the rest of the day. Summer is a great time of year to really work on your mindset and outlook on life, if the weather is good, we can instantly let that have a positive effect on our mood. So I thought I would share with you some of the best ways you can start your day the right way.
 
Choose your outfit the night before
 
This may sound like you are super organized, but getting rid of major choices in the morning is a much better way to have a relaxed approach to the start of your day. So if you can, it might be worth choosing the outfit you will be wearing for the day the night before. We all have applications on our phone that will tell us the immediate weather forecast, so it shouldn't be a huge dilemma to undertake. It may present the perfect opportunity to reorganize your wardrobe, giving you a choice of comfortable dresses for every occasion or even a capsule wardrobe for things like work or casual days.

Don’t be an alarm dodger
 
If you have no choice but to wake at the same time each morning, it can be difficult to accept when your alarm begins to chime. Especially if you don’t find yourself to be a morning person. However, once you hear that alarm begin your morning routine there and then. Snoozing the alarm can only have a negative effect as you continuously put yourself back into that wake-up state every ten minutes. What is the point?
 
Stretch your muscles as you wake up
 
Stretching can have a huge positive effect on your body as you slowly wake up for the day, it helps realign muscles to avoid aches and pains. Slowly doing this as you wake up ensures you engage your brain and your body to be on the same page.

Avoid coffee or tea as your first drink of the day
 
Our bodies will be dehydrated from the night before, having had no new fluid since you going to bed, so it’s important that you hydrate your body with water as one of the first drinks in the morning. It may be tempted to reach for the strong stuff, but having a pint of water before hand will help your body wake up much quicker than any caffeine hit.
 
Ignore your phone until after breakfast
 
It may be tempting to check in on your social media or respond to emails, but try and avoid any contact with this kind of technology first thing. It’s important to relax and enjoy the start of your day, rather than be hassled or gain those feeling of stress from emails and the pressure social media can bring.
 
I hope these tips help you have a better start to your day.

  1. I definitely need to curb the habit of checking my phone the minute I wake up. It also becomes an issue at night, before I fall asleep.

    I'm aware it's a problem... but as of yet, I've done nothing to change my ways.

    I love advice blogs! They seem like they're a lot of fun!

  2. Oh this is a great post. I so need to stop checking my phone in the morning. I do always have a glass of water in the morning. I feel like I cannot function without it.
