The most common complaint about mornings is that they're, well, mornings. We know few people who actually enjoy waking up early -- even more so in the winter, where you're greeted with bracing cold and depressing darkness. While we can't change that, we can offer you the ridiculously easy things you can do every day for a better morning.
Have your gym bag already packed. We're assuming that if you're reading this, you're an after-work gym person, not an A.M. workout type. Don't subject yourself to the indignities of hunting for smelly running shoes when you barely know what day it is.
Put your keys by the door. Add a hook in your entryway (or use a small bowl on top of a side table or shelf), so you can get into the habit of always putting your keys in the same place. See also: Magnets.
