Mornings are always a rushed time for everyone. Running around, getting late sometimes, and no time or patience! But that’s not the way your day should start. The way you start your day has a direct effect on your entire day and productivity. So instead of thinking about negative thoughts why not start your day with a smile and positivity.
Here are 5 positive ways to start your day.
1.Take some me time
It is important to spend time with yourself and introspect. This will give clarity of thought and you’d be better prepared to handle life situations. Spend some time meditating, or enjoy a cup of tea in the balcony or garden admiring nature. You can also start your day while enjoying tea/ coffee and reading a book or inspirational quotes to kick start your day.
2. Practice gratitude
This may sound cliché, but when you start your day with a heart filled with warmth and gratitude you’d be able to enjoy the small joys of life. Count your blessings and be thankful for them. This is indeed one of the most positive ways to start your day.
Have a gratitude journal and write one thing that you’re grateful for each day. Focusing on such thoughts in the morning makes you feel calm and happy.

3. Get moving and exercise
There’s nothing like getting a good workout session in the morning. It not just recharges your body, but also your mind. The release of endorphins (good hormones) after a great run or a hearty yoga session will fill you with productivity and positivity. You’ll feel recharged and happy.
If you’ve still not included yoga in your daily routine, now is the time. Read its benefits here.
4. Make to-do lists
It is best that you prepare for your day the night before, but if that’s not possible make sure you compile a to-do list in the morning. This will help you understand what all needs to be done during the day and you can prioritise your work accordingly.
5. Have a hearty breakfast
Nutritionists say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But a lot of us skip breakfast or have something on the go because of running late to work. Wake up a little early so that you have that extra time to enjoy breakfast. You can also do some meal prepping the night before to make it easier.
After eating a sumptuous breakfast you’ll feel happy and content, your mind will be more alert when you get all the nutrients, and your body will be energised to go through the day!
Also, making to-do lists helps you get clear with the intentions of the day. You can intend to have a productive day, a calm and peaceful day, or just a beautiful day.
