Lately I have had tendency of being a bit tired in the mornings. Usually I am a morning person and do not have any problems getting out of bed. I work full time and most of my mornings are early ones, and sometimes I get to bed waYyyyy too late.
But I have tree little things I always try to do, just to give myself the best start I can get.
Always eat breakfast
Even though I am not that old, I have gotten to know myself during these 19 years. Me doing stuff on an empty stomach, especially when it is mentally challenging, is a BIG no no.
If I do not want the outcome of it to be me ending up crying, screaming or irritated as fuck I better eat. Not just for me, for everyone else’s safety.
I try to walk to work every morning. It’s roughly 5 km, which is a perfect length for me. It takes about 45 minutes in a normal/slow tempo which gives me enough time to wake up properly and plan my day in my head.
Put on a podcast
Instead of watching tv or scrolling Instagram I put on a podcast. I believe that I get more out of it and can do other stuff in the same time like making breakfast or packing my bag etc. While walking to work it feels like I am in the conversation with the podcast hosts and I have had several people look at me strangely because of all the times I’ve started laughing uncontrollably.
But what ever, I am happy and that is the important thing.
So remember that, always focus on what makes you happy. Because it is the small things that build up your life, and it is happening right now. Not tomorrow, not next weekend. Now.
