The way you start the day each morning directly impacts the rest of your day. That’s why successful people have similar habits that ensure a productive start to their mornings. Not a morning person? Here are a few tips that will help you start your day on the right foot.

Prepare the night before

Preparation for a great morning begins the night before. If you bring your lunch, try making it the night before. Think you’re too old for a bedtime? Think again. Having a set bedtime keeps you from the “okay only one more show” mindset that inevitably leads to a groggy morning.

Leave plenty of time

Wake up at least one hour before you need to be out the door. Starting the day in a rush leads to stress that will snowball throughout the day. Allow plenty of time to get yourself ready and in a good mindset.

Don’t snooze

It takes some training, but make a mental decision to never snooze your alarm. Decide on what time you’ll need to wake up and stick to it.

Have a healthy breakfast

Food is our body’s energy source. Start your day with a healthy breakfast to get your brain and body moving!

Review your day

Reviewing your day first thing in the morning is one of the best habits of product morning people. Taking a moment (maybe while drinking your morning coffee) to look over your calendar for the day and mentally prioritize is a great method to start your day on the right path.

Think positively!

Make the conscious decision to think positively when you start each day. It will be infectious to those around you and truly impact your daily outlook.
