Have you noticed that very often your day is not set in the morning? You will learn how to "get on that foot" and not let anything or anyone ruin your day, you will learn from this article.
Setting yourself up to the right pace at the start of your day is very important. Unfortunately, many people deliberately do things that prevent them from having a good, productive day. Today we will talk about the most common such habits and how to deal with them.
Your breakfast is too small
For many of us, breakfast is often limited to just a cup of tea and scrambled eggs. But we forget that our breakfast should be hearty: we should not feel hungry before lunch, and we should not kill our appetite with unhealthy snacks.
Eat breakfast yourself, share lunch with a friend, and give dinner to the enemy.
If you are on a diet and dream of a piece of a very high-calorie cake, then in the morning you can afford it: there is a high probability that during the day you will use up all your morning calories.
So make sure your breakfast is full of wholesome yet hearty foods.
When you wake up, the first thing you do is check your email
This is one of the most disgusting habits that you need to get rid of as soon as possible. Checking your email first thing when you wake up can make you feel stressed throughout the day. You are constantly nervous, checking your mail, afraid to miss something important, and this already becomes an obsession.
Instead of starting your day with a bustle of checking your email and all social media, do something that will help you calm down. Exercise, go for a run, have a cup of tea, or talk to a loved one.
Trust me, it will help increase your productivity, you will feel much better, and at work it will pay off in full.
You watch TV in the morning
… and from the very morning you begin to live not your own, but someone else's life. You get a charge of negativity that will be with you throughout the day.
Think about it, there are only 24 hours in your day. Instead of, like a hypnotized, uninterruptedly monitoring the box, it is better to spend the extra 20 minutes sleeping.
And if it is so important for you to keep abreast of all the news, then look for information on the Internet or chat with colleagues during lunch. But do not forget to treat the information received critically: never trust only one source, refer to different points of view, compare, learn to separate the wheat from the chaff.
You succumb to a general negative attitude
The evil neighbor from below, whom you met so inappropriately in the morning, again begins to scold you for too loud music in the evening. And the neighbors upstairs at 5 in the morning begin to loudly sort out their relationships. Swearing janitor in the yard. Countless queues at the store, and you only need to buy yogurt. Stuffy public transport, in which one gets the feeling that all people hate each other …
Don't be part of this general annoyance. Put yourself above this daily negativity. Think good, do not fall for provocations, and no line or angry neighbor can ruin your day.
You're going in a hurry
… and when you return home in the evening, you see THIS: dirty dishes, the remains of breakfast on the table, things scattered throughout the house, trifles that have fallen out of your jeans pocket, an unmade bed, a bag with garbage that you never had time to throw out in the morning …
It is unlikely that such a picture will dispose to spend a good evening with friends or just sit in an armchair with a good book.
Wake up early and pack normally so that you will not only accidentally forget something you need, but you will also feel comfortable when you return home.
You sleep too much on weekends
And you can be understood. If you work from 9:00 to 17:00, then in order to be in time for work, you need to wake up at 7 in the morning. It is clear that on your legitimate weekend you allow yourself to lie in bed longer.
But what happens after you wake up at 1 pm? You will have a terribly headache, and you will also be haunted by the feeling that you have spent the day mediocre.
Of course, waking up at 7 am on weekends is not worth it, but at 9–10 hours it’s better. If you are still an incorrigible sleepyhead, then you can arrange for yourself a quiet hour and just sleep a couple of hours during the day. This will keep you feeling energized and your day will not go to waste.
You drink coffee on an empty stomach
Coffee is the favorite morning drink of millions of people. Many literally cannot wake up if they do not drink a cup of aromatic drink. But do not forget that if you drink coffee on an empty stomach, it can lead to gastritis.
You remember all your sorrows
The fact that there is still a week before the paycheck, and we have already spent all the money. That in two days I will have to deal with the hated monthly report again. And so on and so forth.
Don't start your day with such thoughts. The fact that you annoy yourself will not make it easier for you. Start your day with positive thoughts or just your favorite music that can improve your mood.
