When it comes to kicking off a New Year the first thing we all do is start making resolutions.
Usually the same resolutions year after year; lose weight, stop drinking, start working out 5 x a week, save more money and come the middle of January those are all but a distant memory and that strong desire you had to make major life changes has left you.
It’s something we all go through but there is a way around it. Instead of making resolutions, set intentions instead. The theory is that resolutions, whilst they are goals, they often set us up for failure from the very start because whilst we vow to lose weight, drink less or learn a new hobby we don’t set a plan on how to achieve to it.
What do you do for the first hour of your day? All the experts say that to be at your most productive you need to get up and get at it at early o’clock. Well, we don’t believe that here at Breathe, after all, we all work on different levels so whilst 5.30am starts may work for some, for others it’s absolute torture.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t get yourself a morning routine that will help us kick start the day, get plenty done and feel good at the end of it too.
The thing is, if we are honest with ourselves, most of us are stuck in the same habit when we wake in the morning. Our phones get picked up and we start scrolling, emails, social media, online banking– it’s a habit that most of us with smartphones are trapped in.
These may seem like harmless actions but by wasting this time, we are not making the most of the first hour of our day – which whatever time you wake up, could be the most powerful hour.
