Three Ways to Kickstart Your Morning to Make Sure You Start Your Day on the Right Foot 

How you start your morning has a significant impact on how things unfold throughout the day. Beginning with the right attitude and expectations affects how well you accomplish what you set out to do. By properly preparing yourself for a hectic workday, you are better equipped to handle anything unexpected that comes your way. Here are three suggestions to help kickstart your morning. When it comes time to add accounting and finance professionals to your team, reach out to the Top Recruiters in Accounting and Finance at Alliance Resource Group.

Clear Your Head

Get your brain focused by clearing your head when you wake up. Having a proper mindset increases positivity, encourages good habits, and maximizes your effectiveness. It helps you take on the challenges and opportunities that come up during the day. To begin the process of clearing your head, drink a large glass of water. This replenishes the fluids you lost while sleeping, flushes out toxins, and helps you feel revitalized. Practice a few minutes of deep breathing. Taking six to 10 deep breaths per minute restores balance to your stress-response system. It increases energy and focus, strengthens your immune system, and reduces anxiety and depression. Practice gentle stretches for a few minutes. Waking up your muscles eases their tightness and tension from the previous day and helps them more efficiently function.

Practice Gratitude

Spend a few minutes expressing thanks for what you have. Speak your thoughts out loud or write them in a journal. They may include getting a good night’s sleep, being able to spend time with family and friends, or having healthy food to eat. Practicing gratitude reminds you to focus on the positivity in your life. It increases feelings of connectedness with others, boosts feelings of joy and contentment, and lowers stress and anxiety.

Set an Intention

Create an intention in line with your biggest priority for the day. Being specific about what you want provides a roadmap for how you want to direct your actions. It also serves as a source of inspiration to move forward to your purpose.  State your intention out loud and with conviction. Write it down on a piece of paper or in a journal. Create a mantra to repeat throughout the day to accomplish what you set out to. Visualize what it will look and feel like when you reach your objective. Share your intention with someone who will provide support and hold you accountable for reaching your daily goal. As you go about your morning routine, think about ways to make your intention reality. Continue to take action until you reach your accomplishment.
