Waking Up To A Pleasant Morning

My alarm buzzed on my iPhone. And I made it snooze immediately. It rang again after a few minutes.

After shutting off the alarm, while still lying on the bed with eyes closed, I realized that each time the alarm rings it gives a panic thought like “I’d be late for office”, “I won’t have time for breakfast”, etc.

On further introspection, I found that such panic thoughts are not good for a beautiful morning. It creates a negative mindset right from the time we get up. And it has a spiraling effect for the whole day.

Instead, our mornings should be pleasant and without any kind of fear, stress, or negative vibes.

Now the question is – How to make the morning pleasant?

So to make my mornings pleasant, I need to do something that elates me, something that calms my mind or excites my mind instead of sending it into the panic or stress mode.

One thing that I really like is listening to music or reading. Reading something positive - maybe some self-help books and not the newspapers filled with negativity.

Or maybe just stand out in the balcony and feel the fresh air.

Or maybe get some exercise or do yoga.
The point is that I need to refrain myself from checking my phone for Whatsapp Messages or for Email because it is not at all a good way to start your morning.

One more thing for making my mornings pleasant is to get up a little earlier. Because the panic mode starts as soon as you think you'll be late. So to avoid this, I'll get up early by half-an-hour to start with.

Whatever I do, I’d try to make my mood better and positive to take on the day.

Let’s see how it turns out tomorrow.
