Sleep for 7 to 8 Hours Every Night

If you don’t get any sleep (or good sleep) you can’t be productive and have energy. Even though you may feel like you function well after only 4–5 hours of sleep, you really don’t. Strive to get your 7 to 8 hours every night, and you will have an improved mood and outlook. You’ll also be refreshed and ready to tackle your day.

Meditate or Stretch with Sunlight

Your body requires vitamin D, and the best way to get that is through natural sunlight. Start each morning off with a short five-minute meditation routine or stretching routine either outside or with your blinds open in the living room. If you are going to be outside, be mindful of sun exposure and apply sunscreen beforehand if needed.

Wake Up Early and Get Moving

Not everyone is a morning person. But you can learn to be one. Getting up earlier and moving your body will help you wake up. It will also provide a boost of energy. Having more energy can translate to better productivity throughout the day.

Try going for a walk or light jog. Or do a yoga workout. Just do something when you get up in the morning. And bonus — exercising in the morning will also help you to get better sleep at night.

Eat Breakfast

When you wake up, your body is refreshed and looking for fuel after a long period of not having any. It needs healthy food and nutrients. Try to eat a healthy breakfast every day. If you’re not a big breakfast eater, try having a protein shake. Or a piece of cheese and some almonds.
