WAYS TO START A GREAT DAY EVERYDAY




Some might be afraid that a meditation session early in the morning could just put you back to sleep. But genuine meditation actually stimulates the brain in a deep and thoughtful way. It allows you to clear distractions from your mind and purge negative energy. Center yourself with thoughtful introspection or prayer and be open to the positive energy the world brings your way.

Some people find mornings filled with optimism, while others would just as soon stay in bed until the clock passes the noon hour.  For most, however, the workday beckons and the morning is a mad rush to get everyone ready and out the door. By the time you reach the office, you’ve probably already dealt with the stress of family, weather, traffic and other distractions. Unless everything goes perfectly, you’ll carry all that stress into your office and share it throughout the day with your employees and colleagues.

Fear not,  it is possible to get the day started right, no matter what comes your way.  Try one of these tips each day of the week or combine them. Either way, you’ll start out on your terms and be prepared to make it a great day.

 

 

1. Plan the night before. Why start your day unorganized? If you organize your to-do-list, breakfast menu and your clothes the night before, you’ll wake up feeling in control and relaxed. Taking 20 minutes to lay out everything can save you a 30-minute fashion crisis or search for the car keys. With a little efficiency, you’ll save the frustration and scrambling, leaving you ready to tackle more important issues.
