Turn off that first alarm

This way, you’ll have get up to turn it, which highly reduces the chances of hitting snooze. Make sure to smile and be happy when you first get out of bed.

Let in The Sun
This should take about 1 minute! Let that sweet morning sunshine in and let your body know it’s time to get up, and to release some of those happy hormones!
Meditation is Key
This should take no more than two minutes. Take a minute to really plan out your day. What are some things that might stress you out? How can you avoid or improve those situations? Try to plan out anything that might draw a snag in your day and think about ways to avoid conflict or stress!
This should take only a minute or so. Make a point to literally recite what you’re thankful for. Sit in front of the mirror and say out loud what you’re thankful for today, and try to add something from what you said yesterday. Reminding yourself of what you’re appreciative for allows you to have a day full of happiness, smiles, and being more compassionate and thoughtful of others.
Make Your Bed
This should take up to two minutes. Making sure you have a nice and neat room to come home to really does reduce any stress or tension you may feel on your way home. Use any extra time to put away any clothes, shoes or accessories lying around!
