Little Things To Do Before 10am to Enhance Your Life

Here we present a short list of activities which are guaranteed to give a great start in the morning. Take a look and have a great day!

Reflect in gratitude: Start your day by reflecting on what you are grateful for. A consistent practice of gratitude in the mornings will increase your awareness of gratitude throughout your day. It will also make you more resilient when challenges occur and help you put drama in perspective.

Set your daily intention: In the quiet of the day, before the fires need putting out, plan your day by focusing on three goals you want to accomplish. Make those goals a priority for the day. When you set about planning your day with intention, you are more likely to feel productive at the end of it.

Pad your schedule: As you go about setting your daily intentions, pad your schedule to allow yourself to tend to fires as they arise. Padding your schedule with free time will give you a better chance of achieving your goals and may even add some downtime throughout the day.

Clean Up: Life is busy and morning routines can be a bit rushed. It can be very tempting when you are running behind to leave your clothes on the floor, dishes in the sink. Just do put them away!
Procrastination around cleaning up after yourself can prevent you from realizing our highest potential and best work. It also allows you to relax fully upon returning home.

Meditation: Meditating or even some simple breathing can help you begin your day with a sense of calm. Instead of reaching for your phone or checking email first thing in the morning, take just a few minutes to sit and experience the quiet. There is plenty of activity during our day, make a commitment to start on a quieter note. It will set the tone for your day and will help increase your focus, energy, and optimism.

Smile: Start your day off by smiling at yourself in the bathroom mirror. Smiling will have a positive effect on your overall attitude and well-being, even when it starts out a little forced. Smiling makes you more approachable, and appear more trustworthy.

Listen to music: Starting your day with upbeat and fun music will not only wake you up but it will fill you with positive energy for your day. A 2013 study found that music makes you feel good.
According to study participants, the two most important benefits of listening to music are “mood regulation and “self-awareness." Not only has it been shown to improve your mood but it can end up increasing motivation, performance, and lead to a better night’s sleep too.
