8/9 - Morning routines

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to think, to enjoy, to love – Marcus Aurelius

The sooner you're up, the sooner you can start your day. Getting up is only half the battle. Starting the day happy and motivated is the other half. An easy way to build up your happiness and motivation is by accomplishing small wins (moving your body, getting out of bed, getting sunlight etc). Feel free to add anything else that helps get your day off to the best start possible. Accumulate small wins and use the momentum to push you into completing the bigger tasks on your To Do list.

Don't challenge yourself this early on. If it can't be easily done, avoid it until later. We don't want anything to stop us from starting the day in the best condition. By waking up happy and motivated we can do what needs done early and enjoy the rest of the day without worries. Having a great day starts with having the right mindset.
