No, it's not always easy to wake up on the right side of the bed, but there are a few positive elements you can incorporate into your mornings to make getting out from under the covers a little more comfortable. A cheery tune, a word of gratitude, an easy stretch and some visual reminders of why life is worth waking up for all can be a good start. Take a look at some of the inspiration below and you'll be on your way to making your morning the best part of your day.

This GPS Guide is part of a series of posts designed to bring you back to balance when you're feeling off course.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.
