It may seem impossible or even pointless to try and plan out your morning routine, but researchers from the Monash University in Australia discovered that waking up early with goals set in mind actually makes you a happier than normal person.
A small study that took place over a six-week period ended with some interesting results. It turns out that early birds are usually more energetic throughout the day and actually accomplish more goals than their counterparts accomplish.
The study also found that those who woke up early and had a morning routine turned out to not only feel healthier but also actually be healthier both physically and psychologically.
If you’re looking for help creating the perfect morning routine, here are some tips;
- Set an early time that you will wake up at every morning, avoid hitting snooze and try to stretch it out as you’re getting up.
- Drink a glass of water! Blurry vision, headaches, body soreness and drowsiness can all be signs of morning dehydration and can clear up almost instantly with water.
- Practice saying some daily affirmations. “Today is a good day”, “I am in charge of how I feel and today I feel happiness”, and “I don’t sweat the small stuff” are great examples of positive daily affirmations to start the day off right.
- Depending on time, either do a workout or hit the shower. Allowing your body to get blood flow pumping and senses alert helps your body and mind wake up and prepare for the day.
So, no matter how you start off your day…we hope this advice enables you to create and build your perfect morning.
