New Year New Me!! Okay so maybe that’s not quite the attitude as you start the new year off. You may not plan on making major changes but you would like to make some improvements to your life. Instead of trying a bunch on new things, how about starting with some daily don’ts first thing each day? Here’s a rundown of some things to change about your morning routine:
Don’t hit snooze: Snoozing triggers your brain back into its sleep cycle. This means that when you wake up again, you’ll most likely be interrupting a deeper sleep, which will leave you feeling groggy.
Don’t check your email: Waking up and checking emails right away ends up framing your morning as a time to take care of all the things you missed yesterday instead of as a time to set new, more powerful goals.
Don’t stay in the dark: The body’s clock is influenced by light exposure. The sooner your eyes and body process sunlight, the faster you’ll be enjoying a productive day.
