Habits To Help Transform Your Day

(©2018 wytchwynd photography)

Hi and welcome to the Under Blue Skies blog page.  

I hope that your week is going according to plan and that you are managing to do most, if not all, of the things that you need to do.

Here is a list that I have compiled that will help you get your day off to the best start possible – some of the tips come from other people and some of them are of my own doing.  So let us go through the first 10 right now.


1 – Put your alarm clock away from your bed this is so that you must get up to turn it off

2 – Wake up at the same time every day – it is said that your body gets used to it over time.  Personally I have to get up at 6.15 Monday to Friday and whilst I have never got used to it my body automatically wakes up without the alarm most days.

3 – Give yourself plenty of time before having to leave the house. If you have to start rushing around you will probably feel off balance for the whole day 

4 – Have something fantastic to wake up for each day. This doesn’t have to be anything big, but has to be something that you love doing. If you can do one thing each day that makes you happy, you will be more likely to want to get out of bed.

5 – SMILE as soon as you wake up –if you are struggling with it remember that your body cannot tell whether you mean it or not!

6 – Drink a glass of water before you do anything else 

7 – Take time just to get yourself ready for the day – ideally it is best if you are up before anyone else .

8 – Make your bed – to be honest this only works if you sleep alone or your partner gets up before you.  It sets you up for the day really well and it removes the temptation to go back to bed.

9 – Open the windows – this will bring both fresh air and light into your home. It will help you to wake you up and feel great

10 - Put some lively music on. This is a great trick – especially if like me you love to sing! – having a playlist of your favourite happy tunes will really get you in the mood for a good day. (dancing to the music will also tick off the exercise as well!).

Now moving onto the remaining suggestions

11 – Have a look at your schedule for the day- check what you have got coming up in your day, so that you will know what you have to do, what is coming so that you can be mentally prepared for the day ahead.

12 – Once you have looked at your schedule for the day, add in any TO DOs that have cropped up providing they fit in with whatever you are doing.  Looking at your TO DO list each day means that you are more likely to actually get things done and be able to take them off the list!

13 – Get in touch with your feelings - if you feel really energetic then you might decide to tackle cleaning your home rather than going shopping.  If you are struggling for motivation, visit a friend who you have been meaning to catch up with for a while.

14 - If you’re feeling motivated to exercise - do a quick workout in the lounge.

15 – Start with the end in mind. If you think about how you want to feel when the day is over, and what you want to accomplish, this will help you prioritise what you need todo that day. Asking “what REALLY needs doing today?” really helps.

16 – Dressed for exercise. This is might sound crazy but if you are in a rush in the morning, dressing for exercise allows you to be ready for running around the house, doing errands etc… as well as for that the important visit to the gym (when you can fit it in)

17 – Following on from number 16.  Get dressed for your day as soon as you can - You will feel like you can tackle more when you feel good about how you are looking. Obviously you have to ensure that you wear the right things for the day ahead, but by making an effort with how you look you will find that it makes a huge difference.

18 – Wearing similar clothes each day means that you will not have to think as much about what to put on.

19 – Exercise – whether you have time for just a quick stretch, a 15 minute quick workout in the lounge, or something more substantial – exercise will keep your body and mind at its best so that you will be more productive during the day.

20 – Chat with someone! – making time to talk to those we love can really help us tune in to those important things in life – and on the plus side it can make mornings much more interesting

21 – Have a great breakfast – You are fuelling your body and mind for the day ahead.  You could use your freezer for quick breakfasts – bag up some chopped fruit and vegetables and they will be ready to make smoothies.

22 – Use minutes while the kettle boils to do a quick task.  For instance:- put some laundry in the washer, unload the dishwasher, fold clothes on the dryer – whatever needs doing, Do at least one thing in this time that would otherwise be wasted. Once you have done one thing you will feel more energised to get more done.

23 – Have a little bit of a me moment - you are not superman or woman and you cannot do it all!  No-one really expects you to anyway!

Know that each day you will do what you can, and that is fantastic!
If you start your day feeling exhausted by what you have to accomplish, you will get nowhere fast. Simply take a few minutes each morning to tell yourself that you are doing great, and give yourself a pat on the back.  Just doing that one simple thing will help you to feel more empowered and ready to face the day ahead.
