We feel our best when we give back to others. Every morning, stop and think about what you are truly grateful for in life. Put those good feelings to work by sharing a compliment or some sort of gesture of appreciation. Without gratitude we cannot grasp the importance of the simple pleasures life has to offer throughout the day. In modern science, gratuity is closely tied to happiness levels.
The best way to boost your morning routines is to find consistency. Once you establish guidelines for what you’d like to achieve, you will grow habits which will keep you on track for the rest of the day. Each day, you will find the routine gets easier as you put an emphasis on sticking to the new rituals. Treat yourself! After the first week of sticking to your new morning routine, reward yourself for starting your day off on the right foot.
