People don’t often realize that the manner in which they start the day can fundamentally have effects on their mood for the entirety of the 24 hours. This should make it quite clear that people need to have a routine that not only ensures that they are ready and on-time but are also boosting their energy levels and improving their mood significantly.
Experts believe that squeezing any amounts of wholesome exercises and similar activities can result in a dramatic change in one’s demeanor and overall mentality. The go-to things most experts recommend to anyone is meditation and a nutritious, healthy breakfast.
However, that is simply not enough detail, is it? This is why Robyn Arnott, from Bless This Mess recently stated his personal favorite picks and methods on ensuring that this morning time is best utilized to brighten up the rest of this day. Arnott states people who face problems with routines can usually trace it back to the morning, and due to significant problems in that part of the day, one is unable to really kick-start the next few hours.
This is why she recommends to everyone to be extra mindful of the morning times, and to make sure that one is able to keep on task and not get distracted. One of the easiest ways of remaining on time and on task is to simply create a list of things that need to be done in each time period. Additionally, whenever someone has extra time on their hands, making sure that it doesn’t get wasted on social media and other distractions is a must.
Arnott states: “Put boundaries on yourself like, ‘I’m not going to play on social media while the kettle is boiling – I’m going to use that time to unpack the dishwasher.” Undoubtedly, many people find themselves in a situation where they had something important to complete but ended up procrastinating and causing themselves much more trouble than the task was worth.
“Think about how much physical time you have from the time you get up to the time you need to leave the house and [consider] what active steps you can take to make sure you meet that deadline,” Arnott says.
Arnott also recommends being sure to not leave any rooms before everything that needs to be done in there has been completed. Leaving things half-way is the easiest ways of forgetting tasks and having to do them in a rush. She recommends making a habit of all the various things that one needs to do in any specific space, and then creating a loop or cycle of them. With enough practice, following along on this loop can become quite easy, and will hardly cause any hiccups along the way.
She finally adds to not let the momentum die down when evenings come along – but to instead utilize them in the same practical sense, and to not get distracted. She also states that the key to being organized is to be calm and collected and states that she prides her personality as a very collected and calm individual.
