PRODUCTIVITY: Ways You're Sabotaging Your Mornings
Waking up on the wrong side of the bed can set a terrible tone for the rest of your day.
But even if you wake up in a great mood, making poor decisions about how you spend the first 15 minutes of your day can still derail you.
Here are some ways you may be sabotaging your mornings:
- Going online – While checking email or social media when you wake up is a common way to start the day, it can often turn into an hour or more. Have some discipline and stay offline until 10 a.m.
- Turning on the television – Unfortunately, morning television is rarely uplifting. It gives you a bunch of stuff to worry about and distracts you from your mission.
- Skipping a workout – Morning exercise gets the blood flowing and makes you more alert. Even just stretching, twisting, or dancing will give you vital energy needed to power you through your day.
- Tackling busywork first – While it can be tempting to “warm up” your day with busywork, it’s better to start with something important that will give great results in the long term. (Yahoo Small Business)
