How to start your day on the right foot.

Getting off on the wrong foot can derail your whole day. That’s why it’s so important to start your morning off right for a productive workday.

  • Get up early. You don’t have to rise with the sun, but getting up early enough that you aren’t in a rush to get to work can eliminate morning stress. Take the time to eat breakfast, have some coffee, and get mentally prepared for the day.
  • Hydrate. Caffeine is great, but you can make your coffee much more effective by downing a glass of water first. A lot of the lethargy that we tend to attribute to morning sleepiness is actually due to dehydration. Plus, caffeine is a diuretic, so it can make you more dehydrated if you don’t replace that water.
  • Make decisions first. It takes a lot of mental energy to make decisions. Take that off your plate for the rest of the day by laying out your priorities right up front. That way, all you have to do for the rest of the day is follow the schedule you’ve already laid out.
  • Eat a frog. There’s a quote popularly attributed to Mark Twain about how if you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, nothing worse can happen to you all day. While you probably shouldn’t eat an actual frog for breakfast, you should absolutely tackle your hardest task first, when you have the most energy.
