Mornings are full of promise. A clean slate and a fresh start. Your morning can set the tone for your entire day. If you wake up and start the day with a smile, it is undoubtedly going to go better than if you started the day wearing your crabby pants. And I would know, some days I feel like my crabby pants might be my favorite pants.
These days, when I start to get the inkling that my day might be headed south from early on, I take a moment to refocus. Just a step back from the chaos of the morning. Some days that means walking to get a coffee. Some days it means stopping to stretch. I might also flip to one of my favorite songs and turn the volume all the way up.
Any day that I can have a positive morning is a good one.
