Listen or Read Something Positive
Before heading into work try listening to an educational podcast, reading a self-improvement book, or watching inspirational videos. The first few things your brain absorbs shortly after you wake up are critical to starting your day off right. Starting your day with something positive allows you to come up with new ideas, a fresh perspective, and a positive start to the day.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise
Burning calories makes you feel happier and healthier. Whenever you work out, you release endorphins which are a great way to relieve stress and start your day off right. Make time to exercise every single day, if possible if even just for a few minutes. Even if you can’t fit in an hour-long workout, you can still go for a 10-minute walk around the block, practice yoga, dance, do the yard work, or go swimming. Any movement is always better than no movement! There are plenty of options and varieties of exercise that you can choose from to find what works best for your morning routine. Exercising regularly also helps other areas of your life and generally makes people happier!
Eat Breakfast and Stay Hydrated
Another well-known cliche, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” However, there are a lot of people that don’t eat before heading into work which can have negative effects on your body after not eating all night while sleeping. Eating breakfast gives you the energy you need to start your day off right and continue your day with more productivity and better concentration. Also, it’s important to drink plenty of water before leaving your house, as it helps with your body’s digestion and metabolism.
How you begin your day is critical to how well the rest of your day is going to go. No matter what your goals are in the morning, it’s important to establish a good routine. Start with trying to include just one of these habits in your morning and slowly add more in as you get more comfortable. Many entrepreneurs will notice a huge difference in their energy levels and productivity wherever they find a morning routine that works for them!
