How To: Start Your Day Early

Carrington New Release-0850

We know. You’re a busy guy. You have a million and one things on your calendar today. Here’s how to tackle them all.

Twisting and turning all night about how you’re going to get through your tomorrow is pointless – in fact, it’s the opposite of what you should be doing. First things first:

  1. Get a good night’s rest. It could all be so simple. If getting to bed on time is a huge debacle for you, find out the reason’s why. Are you getting home too late from work? Are you staying up too late binge watching the latest season of House of Cards? More than likely you may be spending too much time doing the wrong things at night. Instead, press your clothes for work the night before, saving time for your morning rush. Line up all your chores before 10pm and then hit the hay.
  2. Set an alarm for your alarm. We know you. You hit that snooze every morning. Instead of snoozing and losing, prepare yourself an alarm 30 minutes prior to your actual appointed time, this way in your head you still get to “snooze” an extra 30 minutes. Then when the clock hits your actual set time, GET UP!
  3. Focus. Choose an appeasing task for “you time” in the mornings. This will make you apt to getting out of bed. If you’re focused on your morning meditation, jog or anything that will excite you to get out of bed when you wake up, you’ll realize that not only did you get out of bed, but you accomplished something before you even started your day. #Goals!
  4. Eat a good breakfast. How cliche, but how true? A sip of green tea, coffee or orange juice should just serve as an additive to your first meal, and we don’t just mean that old crunchy granola bar that you found behind the Cheerios. Factor in 10-15 minutes to eat eggs, toast and your other favorites. Not only will it benefit your health, but you may find that you’re a nicer person after a good meal.

Taking time to start your day earlier, gives you a lot more time to accomplish your tasks and make room for some “you time.” When you prioritize your time, you carry a happier, stress-free person into your day – you #carryeverything.
