A sure fire way to waste your day away is by starting it off poorly. Rolling out of bed way too late, browsing Instagram, Facebook & Quora which uses up way more time than you would generally assume. Even though you always do it and that always happens.
A good morning routine means you'll kick procrastination in the butt and start off your day right. I also find that knowing I have a routine set in place of a morning helps me to roll out of bed and not snooze the alarm one more time. I can't possibly fit everything in if I only leave myself 30 minutes.
One of my New Year's Resolutions was to fix up my sleeping pattern. I want to be in bed by 11pm and out of bed at 6.30am. I've managed to get a hold of waking up, but I just can't get my ass into bed by 11. I can't wake up early and be a functioning adult if I'm only getting 6 hours of sleep.
Especially if I'm trying to increase my fitness levels. Not getting enough sleep is a great way to feel sluggish and gain weight.
So here's what I do every morning to get me started for the day.
I get it, the year has only just begun so everyone is fully committed to the goals they have made so far. Gym memberships spike in December and begin a sharp decline just after New Years as people guiltily confirm with themselves that they were never going to go.
The worst year ever? Can't 2016 just hurry up and end, right? It couldn't go out without taking a few more beloved celebrities with it. Instead of resolutions I could just follow this goal for the year.
Did you see how I went with my goals last year? All of last years resolutions weren't particularly exciting and I didn't do that great, but I will see how I go with whatever I can up with to achieve this time around.
