One Little Habit Can Change Your Day

I’m not really a Monday kinda gal, but I  have learned how to make the most of them.  In the past, it never failed, on Sunday evenings I would start to get anxious about the week ahead. If I really think about it, even as a kid I would feel this way. School jitters I believe they called it.

I noticed if I made some small changes that I was able to eliminate much of my stress and actually have a productive week.  For example, I found that if I prepared my wardrobe the night before I had more time in the morning.  I also realized if I wrote my to-do list in the evening, I felt more relaxed and I could sleep better.

Then, a funny thing started to happen.  Once I got myself into these little habits, I noticed that I started to develop other habits that helped me feel more productive and well, just happier.

Here’s an example of what I mean.  Some mornings the very first thing I do before getting out of bed is meditate.  Other mornings, I make my bed, tidy up around the house, and then begin my day.  By doing something positive within the first 5 minutes upon waking, I carry that momentum into the rest of my day.

Too often, we begin our day by rolling over and checking our phones – texts, emails, social media.  The next thing you know, we’re worrying about everything we have to do and we didn’t even get out of bed yet.

I encourage you to find one little habit you can accomplish within the first 5 minutes of waking.  Do it tomorrow morning.  It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you appreciate you are starting your day off with something positive.  Before you know it, one little habit can lead you to another.
