4 Things Happy People Do Each Morning
You’ve probably noticed already that mornings have the power to set the mood for the rest of the day.
A rushed start of the day rarely brings anyone any good.
But the good news is, the ability to be a bit happier and feel a bit less stressed out isn’t only reserved for a few lucky ones.
Happy people seem to do mornings differently… And that may be the secret to their happiness!
Here’s how happy people approach mornings!
They prepare the night ahead
Mornings are stressful enough as it is. And let’s be honest, multitasking between the kitchen and the bathroom seldom goes to plan.
That’s why happy people get ready the night before!
Truth be told, it doesn’t take much to make a huge difference: breakfast in the fridge, clothes on the chair, charger, and keys in bag.
That’s more than enough for a massive headstart in the morning.
Pro tip: Tired of packing and unpacking your chargers? Keep an extra set of chargers in your car or in the bag you take to work.
They stay in the present moment
From the minute you open your eyes, your mind begins racing: from your massive to-do list, all the way to how exhausted you’ll feel the minute you get back home in the evening.
But is that doing you any good?
Shift your focus to the present moment. One thing at a time – so far, you have a 100% success rate of making it through the hard days.
Suddenly, things don’t look nearly half as bad!
They don’t check their phones right away
Reaching for your phone the minute you open your eyes?
Postpone the notification rush for at least an hour after waking up.
The problem is, messages and emails that have accumulated overnight are one way to make the brain flood your body in cortisol, the stress hormone.
Instead, make mornings time for yourself. Enjoy your very own morning ritual, whatever that may be. Even an hour of your favourite sitcom is a much better choice than giving yourself a stressful start of the day.
They get some sunlight
You can’t fight science: sunlight is making you happy!
And morning sunlight won’t only make you happy but it’s going to help you sleep better in the evening since it’s a nice way to restart your inner clock. *better sleep = happier you*
Now, if you pair that sunlight with a quick walk around the block, we dare say you’re in for a pretty awesome day ahead!
