This week we share a guest article from Mindvalley Academy, enjoy!
Well, let’s face the bitter fact that getting out of bed in winter mornings, when you are all wrapped up in your cozy blanket, is very tough. It feels almost impossible to motivate yourself to leave your warm bed and get going in the morning - unless you are one of those who pops up at 6 a.m.!
I must say, morning people sometimes seem like they are from a different planet. If you are not a part of that rare species, then you may need some extra motivators and lifestyle changes to get your morning started in a productive, efficient manner!
Starting your day with positivity is important to stay happy and energetic.
If you are someone who constantly feels groggy in the morning, going into work late, and somehow ‘survives’ your day, then here are some tips that will help you to stay motivated and even energized throughout your entire day.
One thing you can do is to start your day with Morning Motivation Quotes.
They help in instilling positive thinking in the morning and thus fills your days with positivity.
Those who are morning people know morning hours are a great time to move ahead of others and to become alive. If you are able to wake up before others, then you have time to plan your day, prioritize your tasks, and think about something creative in your free time. Waking up early sets you up for success!
So if you want to wake up healthy, motivated, and ahead in life, then follow these simple tricks now:
Get a good night sleep:
Well first things first, if you want to wake up happy and motivated then you need to hit the bed early as well. You can’t feel motivated when you are tired and have a lack of energy. On average, a person needs to receive about 7 1/2 hours of sleep to feel rested. According to Dr. Michael J. Breus, a person needs five sleep cycles per night. An average sleep cycle is 90 minutes. So take the time to carve out time to get enough sleep!
Set a soothing alarm:
Starting your day with a very loud and annoying sound can start you off on the wrong foot. There’s a chance you will stay irritated through your day. So instead of having some blaring alarm or annoying voice talk, set your alarm with your favorite song or some soothing sound. It will help you in staying motivated during the morning without feeling agitated from the beginning.
Don’t snooze your alarm:
No matter what you do, try to avoid hitting the snooze button in the morning. It is a bad habit and makes waking up so much harder. It is a psyche that if you hit the snooze button, your brain starts another sleep cycle which is difficult to break. Waking up during this new cycle can totally throw off your day!
Talk positively with yourself:
Don’t start your day with negative thoughts or irritation, it will spoil your mood for the whole day. Rather ask positive questions from yourself, such as 'what am I excited about today?' ‘I am so blessed to have a happy life’. these questions and quotes will help you in removing morning sluggishness and will keep you motivated in the morning.
Treat yourself with rewards:
Wake up knowing that you can treat yourself with something. Make yourself a delicious coffee and treat yourself with your favorite breakfast. These small rewards are a good incentive to get out of bed and start fresh. Having something you like as the first thing in the morning will keep you motivated and on a positive note throughout your day.
Morning is the most important time of your day, to start it with positivity!
