Get a good night sleep:

Mediate before bedtime (or in the morning if you have time):

Free your mind and take some slow breath. Spend 5 minutes just relaxing the mind and letting your thoughts just wander. Perhaps use a meditation app to help you.

Don’t have an annoying loud alarm clock:

The kind of alarm clock where it penetrates you right in the soul first thing in the morning. No body need that. Find a calming alarm clock that has a gentle noise. Perhaps use a sunlight alarm instead of something that beeps.

Write a list before bedtime of things you are looking forward the next day:

Never go to bed with the dread feeling, it won’t do you any good. So before you turn off the light and go to sleep. Write a list of things you are looking forward the next day and focus all your energy on that.

Read a joke first thing in the morning:

It doesn’t hurt to have a little joke book on your bedside table, so when you wake up – you will have something to laugh about. Laughing first thing in the morning will improve your mood instantly.
