2. DON’T CHECK YOUR CELL PHONE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING
Fay Wolf, author of New Order: A Decluttering Handbook For Creative Folks (And Everyone Else) says “I recommend not keeping your cell phone in your bedroom when you go to sleep…” With so much available right on our mobile devices, it’s important not to get caught in the trap of lying in bed scrolling through your phone the first thing after you wake up.
Before you know it, you’ll be running late. Instead of immediately reaching for your mobile device, try some breathing exercises to help ease you into waking up. You’ll feel happier and more relaxed, ready to get out of bed and start your day.
3. DO SOMETHING YOU ENJOY
In the morning, give yourself a small time frame to do something that you really want to do. This could be drawing, reading, listening to music, or even giving in and scrolling through your phone. However, there needs to be a time limit. Only allow five to ten minutes of this indulgence before getting on with the rest of your morning. You’ll get a boost of energy from doing something you enjoy, while still keeping yourself accountable and on track.
