Energize Your Morning In 8 Simple Ways


Workdays are more productive when you hit the ground running.  Here’s how to make certain you’ve got the energy to start your day right, and keep it moving forward.

1. Inspire your body.

When you’re sleeping, your muscles become sore so that waking leaves you groggy. Rather than shuffle through your morning, stand right up, shake yourself out, and take three long, deep breaths. Remember, the root word of “inspire” is Latin for “to breathe.”

2. Inspire your mind.

Have a list of your life goals ready on your bed-table. After you’ve inspired your body, read your goals aloud, not in a drone but with real feeling. Imagine as vividly as you can how you’ll feel when you achieve each goal.

3. Ignore emails and messages.

If you’re like most people, you’ll be tempted to check your phone to see what’s happened while you were sleeping. Bad move. Unless you’ve got something that’s “hanging fire,” postpone the electronic paperwork until after you’re at the office.

4. Drink GOOD coffee.

If you’re going to drink coffee–and you know you are–why waste the experience on the bland liquid served at the kiosks or the rot-gut sitting in the office carafe?  Buy fresh-roasted beans, grind it yourself, and make the good stuff.  You’ll never regret it.
