Healthy Habits – Week 3: Don’t Waste Time in the Morning

media-998990_1920Don’t start your day on the wrong foot. Stop procrastinating before tackling the day ahead. Get up and get into the right mode.

When we have a slow start we often get frustrated with ourselves which sends us off into a downward spiral for the rest of the day.

On the other hand, on days where we have an early and successful running start, we usually carry over that energy through the day. On those evenings we tend to look back at successful and fulfilled days.

Don’t waste time in the morning. There are many ways to waste time in the morning – Facebook, news, gossip, snoozing the alarm clock. None of them is helpful. Before you snooze the alarm, rather sleep longer. Instead of wasting time on Facebook, get started with your day, end earlier and have some time left for your family.

The same applies in the evening. Rather than dozing off in front of the TV, rather spend time with your family, read a good book or just go to bed.

The same applies to games. When did you ever truly feel better after having spend 30 mins with a video game?

Don’t waste time in the morning. Sleep or get up but don’t procrastinate in bed or on the sofa.

Ditch Facebook, news and games. Rather do some Tai Chi, exercise or just a quiet reflection of the day to come.

Get up and get going!
