How to start your day in a centered and organized way, according to a health coach


Why is the moment you awaken in the morning the most instrumental part of the day? Those first few seconds after opening your eyes are pivotal to the rest of your day.

If your thoughts are filled with dread and anxiety, followed by rushing around to get out the door, then you’re not off to a great start and the remainder of the day may follow suit.

Even if you’re working from home these days or you’re retired and dealing with the daily boredom and isolation that social distancing can bring, the start of your day matters.

Regardless of the circumstances, the goal should be to kick off the day in a centered, organized way.

Establishing a morning routine is essential. It fosters comfort and security and tames the a.m. chaos.

Keep it simple and include something you enjoy. This could range from listening to your favorite music to savoring your cup of joe to taking a morning walk.

Preparing the night before helps the morning run more smoothly too.

Debbie DeAngelo, a health columnist for the Erie Times-News.

Lay out clothes, prep breakfast and set out whatever you need to grab as you head out the door.

Perhaps the most critical aspect to the flow of your day is your mindset, no matter what happens.

Much of your reality is formed by your beliefs and expectations. Worry doesn’t take away your troubles, but it does take away your peace.
