Today's topic is Things To Stop Doing In The Morning
Audio Contributed by Our Friends at Brainy Dose
Today we get a short list of things to stop doing in the morning if you want to have success.
Some mornings everything goes right. You wake up before your alarm goes off. Your morning jog feels like playtime. The coffee tastes better. And there is no traffic on your way into the office. And when you sit down to get to work, you feel like you could conquer the world.
“If you wake up [energized], you’re going to carry that energy through the rest of the day,” says productivity expert and coach Ellen Goodwin. Starting your morning with little “wins” (having an outfit picked out and ready to go, working out and leaving on time) primes your brain to work toward more “wins” and successes throughout the day, Goodwin explains.
But if you start the morning off on the wrong foot, you’re already behind, she says. And that means you’ll need to use the energy you do have to get to a better emotional state, she explains. (Think back to how you calmed yourself down the last time you got caught in a traffic nightmare or public transport breakdown.)
“Energy equals willpower — and you only have so much at a given time,” she says. So the more of it you use to recover from a train delay or an alarm-didn’t-go-off morning, the less you have later for concentrating on a big project at work, family drama or whatever your day throws your way.
“The morning is a critical time that can set the tone for the entire day” — and your short- and long-term health says Goel — a biological psychologist and behavioral neuroscientist who specializes in sleep, circadian rhythms and their effect on human physiology.
Here’s what Goodwin and Goel say are some of the best things you can do to start your day right.
1. Plan ahead!
2. Resist the snooze
3. Drink water
6. Get outside in the sun
7. Make coffee (at home)
8. Eat breakfast
9. Spend time with your family and friends
