An alarm clock and a person waking up

Get energized to start your day!

Use these tips to start your day off right.

  1. Be still for five minutes. Before getting out of bed breathe deeply and be calm. This will help you get your thoughts together to take on your day!
  2. Drink a glass of water. Keep a glass of water by your bed. Drink the whole glass when you wake up. Your mind and body need lots of water to become alert.
  3. Smile!When you wake up, give the world a big smile. Your mind and body are linked. When you smile, your body sends a message to your mind that you are happy.
  4. Stay away from screens. Get ready for your day before you check emails, social media, or the news. This will help you to leave your house on time.
  5. Eat a smart breakfast. Eat foods high in protein and fiber in the morning to make you feel awake and alert. This will also keep you full until your next meal.
  6. Connect with someone. Tell a loved one how great they look or send a happy message to a friend. Making others feel good will help you start your day on a good note.
