Choice of morning activities affecting the rest of the day. The idea is to convey the atmosphere good morning to all day. This is what psychologists advise.
Do not immediately reach for the phone
Do not “hang out” with their phone at least the first hour after getting up. Have you wake up alarm clock rather than the good old alarm from a mobile. Resist the temptation to immediately review the e-mails, check what’s new on Facebook and so on. Social psychologist Dr. Ron Friedman says that if the first morning grabbed a cell, it puts your mind in a defensive position. Instead, it is important that the first few minutes after getting up in the silence of focusing on yourself. “When you look yourself as someone who influences the things that happen to him, the less you encouraged me anxious thinking patterns,” says Dr. Friedman.
Choose healthier foods
Make a healthy, nutritious breakfast, rehydrate the herbal tea or hot lemonade, which strengthens the immune system. Coffee, drink only one or two hours after getting up. Believe it or not, the optimal time for a cup of coffee was 9 o’clock in the morning.
Do something you love right now
Behavioral psychologists have found that people are most productive in the period from one hour to three and a half hours after getting up. Thus, for example. If you get up at 7, will be the most productive period of between 8 and 10:30. This means that you have enough time before work to do something that will make you happy and cheerful.
If every morning, until your brain is fresh and “clean”, recently started planning the day’s activities, it will help you to cope with everyday obligations. You can “pass” through all the meetings that you have on that day, set up one or two goals that you want to achieve.
Steve Jobs, had a habit each morning to ask yourself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I planned to do today?” As he told students at a lecture he gave in 2005 at Stanford University whenever the answer was negative too many days in a row, he knew he had to change something.
Do the hardest thing first
Mark Twain once said, “Eat the frog in the morning, nothing worse you can not happen that day.” Whatever your “frog”, the first finished with it, the more beautiful the continuation of the day.
If you have children, get up before them
When you wake up before the kids, you have to start to your day, and not on their way, that will make you feel better to keep things under control. Regardless of whether you are going to take a shower, have breakfast, meditate or work, do something for yourself before it comes time to fill their needs.
Greet the day
Exit to the terrace, check out what the weather (inter alia, to mean what to wear to work), take a deep breath the air, feel the atmosphere of that day, and go to meet him.
