Prepare Your Morning Before Tomorrow Comes Today
Mornings are often overlooked. Not only do most people sleep through their mornings, but they also simultaneously lose the opportunity to maximize their day. It’s more than just the literal amount of time that you would have for the whole day to do your tasks.
Waking up early in the morning is actually a really huge factor in how the rest of your day will go. If you start the day by going back to sleep, chances are you will feel groggy and unmotivated by the time noon comes around. Retreating under the comforts of your covers comes from how you feel or expect for the rest of the day to go. Naturally, if you dread what will come after, you would want to delay the inevitable which is actually getting out of bed to be productive.
In order to counter this problem, there is a method that can only take up as little as a minute, and it starts before the morning comes - setting your intentions before going to bed. The most crucial part of this process is your conscious decision to create a positive expectation for the next morning. Visualizing the next day gives you a direction to where your day will go instead of feeling lost and unproductive. Moreover, it also reaffirms and concretizes your larger goals in life.
It’s not an easy feat to suddenly just break this habit of snoozing countless alarms just to get that extra five minutes of sleep. This is a process that takes a lot of self-control, discipline, and patience for it to truly take into effect and flourish. But I guarantee that the moment you decide and tell yourself to get up and get going, a positive transformation will inevitably unfold. Again, it’s not easy. But it’s better to start trying than to never have tried at all.
