Morning Habits Every Girl Boss Should Try

How you start your day is everything. It plays a major role in determining whether you are going to have an average or fabulous day. As we embark on a new year, i really encourage you, if you are not doing so already to think of a few things you can do each morning to set the tone of your day to become more positive and that way you can better achieve your goals. Behavioral psychology says it takes 21 days to form a habit, so think of what you can do differently and try it out the entire January, and by February it could be a habit.

Here are five things i have been doing every morning, well most mornings and they’ve made a positive difference in my daily life.

Make your bed: Believe me, making your bed first thing when you wake up does something unexplainable to you on the inside. I guess maybe the thought that you have already done something, or you have a more organised space. Just try it.

Light stretching: Exercise at least once a week (Yes that is enough for me) however every morning i spending 10-15 minutes on light stretching. This includes a few squats and planks. Physical stretching helps improve posture by relaxing muscles in addition to being a stress buster.

Healthy breakfast: Ever since i started having breakfast every morning i’m a happier person. Literally! Breakfast gives you the energy required to start the day and more importantly it keeps you from over eating throughout the day.

Gratitude journaling: It is good to start the day with positive vibes. When you self reflect on how good God has been, you’ll discover so many reasons to go about the day smiling.

Plan the day: I’m a believer in living for a purpose. You cant simply exist without any desires, and achieving success is determined by your everyday decisions. Whoever you are and whatever you do, have a plan. Start somewhere. Think about it, you get to save time as well because you already have your day mapped out so you are not going to waste time thinking, ‘ok, whats next’.

Always start with your most difficult task: As discouraging as it sounds, when you offload the heavier load first you will have so much peace and can go about your day a happier person than when you have that task at the back of your head all day.

I’d really love to know what are some of your morning rituals and how they impact your days turn out. Let me know below.

    I’m a TOTAL believer in making your bed first thing- seriously, my sheets are still warm because I make it the second I get out of bed! Having the room in order before I leave really sets the tone for a productive (and organized!) day for me.

    A healthy breakfast is so important to me, I never ever miss breakfast, not only does it set me up for the day, but it gives me the chance to sit and enjoy it while planning the day ahead!

    For me i find that its crucial to plan the next day to an extent when bringing the present day to an end,What are you thoughts on that.
    So asides from the gratitude journaling before i strut off to bed i do a stock take of how the day went , what i learnt and could work on moving forward and most importantly i keep my daily tasks realistic

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

    I really love these tips Nicole, as it’s been something I’ve been meaning to incorporate myself for a while now. I’m not a morning person or someone who is particularly organised and I often find myself burned out and running out of time. There are some definite positives in this post that I can take forward for 2018 and I admire you sharing this inspiration.
