Want a stress free morning? Stop doing these things...

Super short post on keys to creating positive momentum from the moment you wake up.

The Dalai Lama has an interesting outlook on happiness, he believes it is not just obtained through the accumulation of wealth/objects/successes but is cultivated also through elimination and cutting out activities which cause us stress.

This is really important when it comes to morning routines because there are some key things you might be doing which may be causing you stress or preventing you from building up energy optimally.

In that first hour please try to avoid:

1. Reaching for coffee straight away. Your body actually needs a glass of water more. It is the longest period you have gone without water in a 24-hour period. You also get more bang for your buck by putting that morning coffee back a little bit to when your cortisol levels are naturally waining. Check out my article on optimal hydration here

2. Making lots of decisions - put your keys in a specific spot every evening, pre prepare breakfast and outfits as much as possible. This can be a game changer.

3. Increasing your stress levels by going into email and social media in that first hour as you are inclined to become intimidated by how it increases the size of your to do list and feelings of time shrinking. 

Please experiment with this advice before I post a new article tomorrow. It will be on the few important things to actually consider including in your morning routine. You won't even need to include them all, even just one can be enough to enhance your morning...
