Mornings are a crucial part of any day-they set the tone for the rest of your day as far as attitude and productivity. They can also serve as the perfect start to good time management planning so that your nights aren’t filled with work and you can actually relax and watch Grey’s Anatomy or hang out with friends!
In order to get your mornings started off on the right track to maximize your time, here’s a list of things to start doing to jump start your day!
1. Take ten minutes before going to bed to set up for a successful tomorrow. Write things down you want to get done in order of importance, tasks you’ve yet to accomplish, one thing you definitely want to do the next day, lay out your outfit, pack your backpack, set up your breakfast-whatever is going to make getting ready easier!
2. As soon as you wake up ssssssstretch it out! Even five minutes of stretching will do to wake up your muscles and mind. Focus on your breathing to prepare yourself for the day.
3.Within 15 minutes of waking up, get something on your to-do list accomplished. Send your professor that email, schedule your appointment, review your note cards or bang out a reading assignment. Just get something done ASAP!
4. Eat a nutritional, sustainable and energizing breakfast! Your body has just been deprived of food for 6-8 hours, you need to give it fuel. Let yourself enjoy that coffee, a delicious omelet or some chocolate chip pancakes.
5. Get going! As soon as your finished with breakfast, put your phone away, get your work ready and get started. The longer you wait, the more you’ll have to do tonight!
