Take a Hike to start your day

Getting up and going in the morning can be a challenge, especially when we're feeling groggy, lethargic, or just plain unmotivated. But there are ways to make the most of those early hours and start the day off on the right foot.

Many of us are guilty of hitting the snooze button a few too many times, myself included and rushing out the door without much thought for how we're feeling. But starting your day off on the right foot can make a huge difference to your overall well-being. It sets the tone for the rest of the day and can help you to feel more energized, focused, and productive.

Positive psychology tips for a better morning

So, how can you ensure that your mornings are as positive and productive as possible? Here are a few tips and tricks to help you get started:

  1. Create a morning routine: Having a set routine can help you to feel more in control and less stressed in the morning. Whether it's a cup of coffee, a quick yoga session, or a few minutes of meditation, find what works for you and make it a part of your daily routine.

  2. Practice gratitude: This is a morning and evening thing, Take a few moments each morning to think about what you're grateful for. This can help to shift your mindset from one of negativity or stress to one of positivity and abundance. End your day with a look at what you have to be grateful for over the course of the day focusing on gratitude before bed can help us sleep and feel better when we get up in the morning.

  3. Connect with others: Even if you're not a morning person, taking the time to connect with others can help to boost your mood and make you feel more connected. Whether it's a quick chat with a coworker or a text to a friend, find ways to connect with others in the morning.

  4. Spend the First 30 minutes of the day tech-free, let your mind wake up and get going before you get other influences barging on in there!
