We’ve all been there, you’ve hit snooze six times and now you have ten minutes to drag a brush through your hair, maybe apply mascara, and grab a coffee before running out the door. But, come on Career Girl, that’s no way to prepare for a successful day and you know it! Take time in the morning to prepare, both physically and emotionally, for a productive day
1. Wake up earlier
It sort of goes without saying, but if you wake up earlier, you have more time in your morning to wake up and prepare for the rest of the day! Instead of rolling out of bed twenty minutes before you need to be at work, try giving yourself an hour or two at least to prepare your mind and body.
2. Drink lemon water
The health benefits of drinking lemon water are endless, and it’s a great way to wake up your body and kick start your metabolism. Before reaching for that morning coffee, down a full mug of hot or cold lemon water!
3. Eat a good breakfast
It’s the most important meal of the day for a reason. Getting a good breakfast fights the mid-morning and afternoon hunger, plus, it actually helps you eat less at night (no more late night brownie binges). Make sure to get a good amount of both protein and carbs for energy that will get you started and last until lunch!
4. Sweat it out, girl
Working out in the morning is a great way to get going, whether that’s heading out for a run, or just doing some light yoga. Get that blood flowing and heart rate up! Move that body!
5. Clean your space
Clean space, clean mind. Take a few minutes to pick up, make your bed, do the dishes, or any little chore that leaves your space clean and uncluttered. You’ll feel more prepared for your day knowing that your personal space is tidy. Plus, you won’t have to come home to mess and curse at it!
6. Set your intentions
Take a few minutes either with meditation, reflection, or just sitting and thinking about how you want your day to go and what you want to accomplish. Focus on more emotional and internal goals like showing kindness, and having a positive attitude. You’ll feel more emotionally prepared to tackle that to-do list!
7. Make a To-do list
Speaking of the to-do list, it’s time to jot down everything you want to accomplish today and prioritize what’s most important! Then, you get to go about your day crossing off tasks! Is there any feeling more rewarding than a completely crossed-off checklist? I don’t think so.
