How to have a Girl Boss Morning
You wake up – you stretch – everything clicks – you groan – you wish coffee could walk itself up the stairs.
You. Are. Doing. It. All. Wrong.
So, how can you maximise your mornings for success? I’ll give you a clue, it’s not 20 espressos and stubbing your toe.
1) Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
Boooring… but I have to say it. Get to bed, girl! Every hour before midnight is worth two after..etc.etc. I can throw as many metaphors at you as you like, but you just need to get your zzz’s in. It’ll be much easier to get up if you’re well rested, you won’t slump so much in the afternoon and every part of your body will thank you for it!
2) Have a routine
It’s proven that the most successful women in business have set morning routines. Wake up at the same time every day, stretch, breathe, do yoga, make a healthy breakfast, go for a run, read – whatever it is, make it work for you and repeat it.
3) Leave your phone to have a lie-in
Do you wake up and reach straight for your phone? Scrolling through emails and browsing social media is no way to set yourself up for a high performance day. Seeing super skinny insta-models, a snotty client email or a post from that colleague you can’t stand,isn’t going to get you pumped. Leave your phone where it is, enjoy your breakfast in peace.
4) On that note, breakfast!
Most of us are pretty sucky at this… but I love breakfast! Trust me – it’s good for you. Your body needs fueland that’s a fact. Low sugar levels = low energy levels.
5) Make your bed
“If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed..” – Navy Seal William H. McCraven… I mean, nuff said?
How you feel first thing in the morning, sets a precedent for the rest of the day. If you feel accomplished and on-top of things, you’ll find that the little things don’t stress you out as much.
You’ve got this.
