How to start your day

Morning comes and signals the beginning of a new day every time it arrives. How you spend your morning affects how you will feel the rest of the day. However, mornings aren't pretty for everyone. If you find yourself struggling to rise out of bed and shine throughout the day, this guide will be absolutely perfect for you. Below are some tips on what steps you can take to ensure your morning starts in a great way.



The importance of getting a good night's sleep cannot be stressed enough and is something that our mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, our neighbour's aunts and uncles, and television advertisements have told us since we were born. What they don't stress on, however, is the importance of not being overworked before sleeping. So, all that advice about preparing everything the night before to reduce stress in the morning and not leaving any work for the next day can simply get lost. Have some faith in yourself. You'll remember the next morning that your pencil-box is underneath a pile of books in the living room and you'll also manage to write that 500 word essay that your teacher said requires creativity and patience. Because that is totally doable.



So what if Mark Zuckerberg wears the same shirt to work every day to save his energy for making other decisions? You need to look the part first. You should dress nice to feel good about yourself and because that's how you want people to judge you since there is not much inside. Also, don't call it needless stress; it's just exercise for your brain.



Spring up from bed like you've been poked in the back. The rush of blood to your head and possible muscle strains will make you lose your desire to sleep again as the pain will cut out the drowsiness.



Make a list of all the embarrassing incidents that happened to you along with a list of everybody and everything you are jealous of. The burning in your cheeks and chest will send you stomping off to school in search of revenge and you will be able to spend entire classes imagining all the horrible things you could do to them instead of concentrating on the lesson.



They constantly tell you that water is the most important thing in the world ever since you learned how to walk and made the mistake of showing people that you do understand what they're saying. So it only seems apt that you should start your day with this liquid. But plain water is boring. To shake things up and sweeten up that tasteless fluid, add 8-10 spoonfuls of sugar or some other such sweetener in very large amounts. This might also help you cut on your caffeine consumption. Some might say that substituting one unhealthy habit for another, possibly more unhealthy habit is a bad idea that might cause you some problems. But hey, at least when you go to the doctor for treatment of possible physical complications, you can proudly say that you did in fact stay hydrated.
