Mir­ror Mantra

Take 30 sec­onds to give your­self a pep talk in the mir­ror. Even Steve Jobs in­cor­po­rated the mir­ror rou­tine into his day. Each morn­ing, he’d look at him­self and ask: ‘If to­day was the last day of my life, would I be happy with what I’m about to do?’

Make time For Brekkie

Eat­ing a healthy break­fast is said to im­prove your short-term mem­ory and help you con­cen­trate for longer pe­ri­ods. Say good­bye to Mon­day morn­ing brain fog and eat within an hour of wak­ing. For an ex­tra boost, take a leaf out of Jen­nifer Anis­ton’s book with a glass of hot water and lemon.

Stop rush­ing

Learn from Vi­ola Davis, who wakes at 5.30am be­fore work­ing out and re­lax­ing with her hus­band. ‘That part of my day is com­pletely about me and my hus­band,’ says Vi­ola. ‘We sat in our Jacuzzi this morn­ing and we just talked and talked. It’s med­i­ta­tive.’

avoid Mul­ti­task­ing

When you’re hav­ing a re­ally busy week, mul­ti­task­ing can be tempt­ing – es­pe­cially in the morn­ing. But ac­cord­ing to re­searchers at Stanford Univer­sity, it’s ac­tu­ally far less pro­duc­tive than con­cen­trat­ing on one task at a time.

Steer Clear of de­ci­sions

En­sure a re­lax­ing morn­ing by mak­ing all your de­ci­sions the night be­fore. Choose your out­fit, pre­pare your food and pack your es­sen­tials. Tip: al­ways have a spare out­fit ready, just in case...

A healthy brekkie will set you up for that big meet­ing
