8 Ways to Get a Morning Headstart

Getting up early every day to start the day off right has a huge effect on the rest of our day. Unfortunately we can not always completely trust our morning selves, especially if we are lying in a warm cozy bed and there is no immediate pressure to get up (Or we can delude ourselves with pressing 'snooze'.) To combat this, a healthy and balanced morning routine works wonders, and especially doing it for 30 days to make it a habit. A morning routine sets the tone for the whole day to come. The goal is to work on what's important instead of reacting to what's being asked of you. Such a personal ritual will put us in the right mindset and help to avoid morning procrastination.
