Cannot bring yourself to wake up and go to work? Each morning turns into a nightmare? Tired of looking for a suitable motivation technique for waking up and still every morning you hate the whole world? To make your morning good, these 5 simple but effective components are needed:
1. Morning warm up exercises
It is not necessary to immediately turn into a professional athlete and put a bunch of unrealistic goals such as the number of sit-ups and push-ups or a certain distance to run. Start simple: each morning in all weather and at any mood, 10 minutes after waking up out of bed do a little workout with smooth movements, and then gradually increase the pace. The load, number and variety of exercises should be gradually increased every 3 days by adding new elements and movements. Strength exercises and heavy loads should be left for the second half of the day: do not try to wake yourself up with strength training. A proper morning exercise works better than any coffee and antidepressants or stimulants.
Morning shower should last no longer than 15 minutes. This is a quick way to refresh your mind and body, finally wake up and reinforce that boost of energy you got after 15-30 minutes of morning warm-up exercises.
Always take your breakfast, since it is the most important meal and the start of your day. Not only your mother and grandmother agree on the importance of the breakfast, but also eminent dieticians, therapists and doctors working with athletes and the military.
4. Good music
Emotional charge for your body is no less important than food. Something invigorating, rhythmic but unobtrusive should be your background music. Avoid listening to the radio or watching the TV with their advertising and news about politics and accidents! Start your morning with positive music, not with disturbing and negative influences of the media.
5. Foot walk
It is the final component of a good morning on our list, but not the least in importance. Even if you need just 20-30 minutes to get to your place of work or study, prefer to make this journey on foot.
