Wondering how to have a happy morning? The first hour of your day can set your mood for the rest of it. If you start your morning with an easy and calm morning routine, feeling joyful and refreshed, you are more likely to continue this positive vibe for the rest of your day.
In order to become a happy morning person, try to incorporate these 6 things into your morning routine:
#1 – Eat a satisfying breakfast
Everyone knows it is the most important meal of the day. Having a satisfying breakfast gives your body the fuel it needs after a good night’s rest. It is the key to feeling more energized for the rest of the day and also has an influence on your concentration and therefore performance at work. So in order to avoid that ‘hangry’ feeling, give yourself a satisfying breakfast every morning. If you struggle to plan and prep your meals, the Fit planner is for you, not only can you plan your meals ahead of time you can write down the values of them, and see how much protein and carbs you’re getting to make sure you’re getting the right amount of everything you need.
#2 – Don’t hit the snooze button
This can be a tough one, not hitting the snooze button. We use it to hopefully have a little bit more sleep and wake up more energized, but the opposite is often true. Scientists found that hitting the snooze button 9 out of 10 times makes you more tired and is often a part of a larger problem: sleep deprivation. So instead of using your snooze alarm, go to bed 30 minutes earlier in order to get that extra sleep. This is how to have a happy morning, for sure.
#3 – Meditation, prayer or affirmation
Saying something you’re grateful for, something positive to yourself, meditate or say a prayer, it is whatever floats your boat. This helps you to be calm, brings you to the present, and is a good way to determine your (positive) mindset for the rest of your day.
