You should always start your day feeling refreshed, alert and focused.

It iss critical to your daily performance and mental health but it doesn’t always come naturally and some times it’s harder than at others.

If you have trouble focusing during the day or feel worn out easily, it might be because you did not start the day on the right foot.2

Even if you’re not a morning person, try following these 8 Ways to Start Your Day Fresh and Focused.

You can improve how you feel from the very moment you wake up.

1. Eat Breakfast

Eat Breakfast

It is well known that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

If you skip out on breakfast, you’ll feel worn out because the last meal you had was probably last night’s dinner.

Start the day with a healthy breakfast that energizes you and prevents you from snacking until lunchtime.

2. Avoid Caffeine

Avoid Caffeine

This may be hard, especially if you’ve been relying on your morning coffee to kick start the day.

However, coffee is a diuretic, meaning you’ll encourage your body to lose fluids.

Similarly to how you need food after a night’s sleep, your body needs to be rehydrated.

Drinking water, fresh orange or grapefruit juice will be a better.

Also, hot water with honey, lemon and ginger helps circulation and is a great immunity booster as well.

3. Exercise

Exercise

It can be as easy as a few stretches or a light jog on the spot in your bedroom.

Or if you’re into more strenuous exercise, a good several mile run will definitely boost your serotonin levels.

Start the day getting your body moving;

it pumps the blood, activates your metabolism and uplifts your mind.

4. Deep Breathing

Deep Breathing

When you first get out of bed, take a deep breath and exhale at a rate twice as long as your inhale.2

This is a slow and comprehensive way of breathing that relaxes your mind.

This is particularly beneficial if you have an upcoming day you’re feeling stressed or anxious about.
