TIPS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR BUSINESS MORNING
October 25th 2010 at 7:59pm Published by firstdownadmin
Whether you naturally wake up feeling alert and productive or wake up with the brainpower of a zombie, these tips will help you transform your morning routine and set a positive tone that lasts the entire day.
1. Start with exercise.
Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that makes your brain feel soothed and keeps you in control of your impulses.
2. But drink some lemon water first.
Drinking lemon water as soon as you wake up spikes your energy levels physically and mentally. Lemon water gives you steady, natural energy that lasts the length of the day by improving nutrient absorption in your stomach.
3. No screen time until breakfast.
When you dive straight into emails, texts and Facebook, you lose focus and your morning succumbs to the wants and needs of other people.
4. Eat a real breakfast.
Eating anything at all for breakfast puts you ahead of a lot of people. People who eat breakfast are less likely to be obese, they have more stable blood-sugar levels, and they tend to be less hungry over the course of the day.
5. Set goals for the day.
Research shows that having concrete goals is correlated with huge increases in confidence and feelings of control.
