Starting your day with calmness, mindfulness and gratitude will set the tone for the rest of your day. The morning can become a time you enjoy, but in order for that to happen you need to make it a time you look forward to by changing your activities and approach.
Society has somehow accepted that it's okay to grunt, stumble and bitch our way through the start of every day. And so we do. What we don't realize is it's not just our bodies but our souls as well that need sustenance for a long day ahead.
I have found that I am so much happier when I'm able to accomplish so much before the middle of the day. Mornings, I've now found, bring me joy, if not in the moment than surely a few hours after I've woken up at least.
