It’s not a surprise that the better we start off our day in the mornings, the better our day will usually be.
If we start off our day rushing, becoming frustrated or not in a good mood, the rest of our day often tends to continue that way. Likewise, if we start off our day calm, composed and under control, we have a much higher chance of experiencing the same feelings during our day.
Therefore it makes a lot of sense to be intentional as to how we start off our day and pay closer attention to our morning routine. As we typically start off most of our days the same way, it’s intelligent to build in things that will increase our chances of being at our best and doing what we want to.
When I was in my twenties and had a full-time corporate career, each day tended to start off in a rush. As I used to commute between thirty to forty minutes each way to work, I always felt I was running late as I usually gave myself about thirty minutes to get ready, have some breakfast, make my lunch and then drive to work.
I also used to drive during peak periods so the amount of traffic on the road used to get me agitated and frustrated.
