Our mood when we wake up can affect the way we feel and function for the day. For us to be more productive and motivated, we should start the morning right. Here then are some things we can do to achieve just that.

Wake up early
Waking up early isn’t a very easy thing to do. But, it’s actually essential to having a positive mood throughout the day. When you wake up early, you’re able to do a lot more things and have more time for yourself as well.

Take a shower
Taking a refreshing shower in the morning helps you wake up, too. Try showering with cold water, it might sound like torture in the morning but once you get out, you’ll actually feel more alert. You might even find that your laughing at yourself for actually doing this.

Make your bed
Start your day by making your bed. This sounds like a command to a child, but it can do wonders for adults too! This is especially good if you’re not used to making your bed at all because once you do you can take it as your first success for the day. Having this in mind, you’re setting yourself up to be more productive for the day.

Have breakfast
Having a healthy breakfast is also essential in the morning because it gives you more energy. Having a good meal, with rice, fruits, and more, can give you enough fuel to stay energetic throughout the day.

The first ones mentioned are the more obvious morning routines that we can do, but here are others you can start doing as well.

Listen to your favorite upbeat music
As long as you don’t disturb others, feel free to sing and dance to upbeat music. You could even do this while you’re in the shower. This is a great way to start the day because it puts you in a fun and positive mood. If you do this, you’ll find that you’re actually feeling happy all throughout and rarely will you have a bad temper for the day.

Talk to yourself in the mirror
Looking at your reflection and saying words of motivation can greatly increase your confidence. “You are amazing and you stand out from everyone! The world is out there waiting for you!” say to yourself. Don’t do this to feed narcissism, of course, but as a way to psych yourself up for the day.
