Are you a morning person? Have you noticed that some people bounce into work, smiling, totally prepared for the day while others drag themselves in at the last minute, searching for coffee and a place to hide until lunch time?

What is the difference between these two types of people? Are some people simply better organized or is there something more to it? Are some people just born “morning people”?

Perhaps it’s a bit of both. Some people are taught from an early age to be a bit more organized so that they aren’t rushing in the morning.  However, other people know that in order to be a happy person ready to start their day, they need to have a little routine that will make the rest of their day go more smoothly.

Keep reading and find out the top 10 things you should start practicing every morning so that you can be one of those happy, productive, healthy people who walks into the office every morning with a smile.


1.  Set Positive Intentions for the Day

Want to have a better day? Start by imagining it! To some extent, our world is created within our own minds, so start thinking about how you want your day to go. Just a minute or two in the morning can make all the difference. Picture yourself driving to work with a minimal amount of traffic, getting to work a few minutes early, having your meeting go your way, a stress free commute home, etc. Imagine that your day will go smoothly and chances are much better that it will.


2.  Forgive Past Mistakes

Too often, people continually look back on yesterday’s mistakes or the wrongs done to them by others in the past. When we do this, we lose today. Forgiveness is a gift to ourselves. We can’t change what has happened, but we can learn from it by forgiving ourselves, forgiving others, and moving forward so that we do not miss today.


3.  Be Grateful

As you get out of bed, remember to be grateful. So many people in the world lack the basic comforts that most of us take for granted: a soft bed, warm, thick blankets, a well-built home with all the amenities, plenty of clean food, water, clothes, and a job. Feel gratitude for everything that you have. It is a great way to start the day.
