Wake up earlier and spend time appreciating the little things in your life, being happy isn’t about people or huge unexpected surprises all the time, believe in yourself and believe that you can make yourself happy.
You can start by writing gratitude lists in the morning, Meditate, even as simple as laying out a piece of clothing that you recently bought and are excited to try on the next morning, you can try a new breakfast, plan to go to the gym earlier than usual, plan to meet a friend, catch up with your partner or even plan for a significant beauty routine.
It can be anything that you are willing to do and excited for to help motivate you to start your day with a fresh, happy, and positive mood.

Practice any kind of exercise you like whether yoga, cardio or even stretches.
It is better to practice exercise after waking up directly so you can get rid of any lack of energy or unwillingness to get started on your daily tasks. Remember to stay hydrated and hit the gym, garden or your living room.
Don’t Skip Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it supplies you with the energy to start your day fully ready to be productive, so don’t skip it!
Eating isn’t only for health purpose, it is also a way of treating and exploring your senses. Let your breakfast be healthy and enjoyable by including healthy and delicious food you love.

Have Better Sleep
A good morning starts with a good night so, you need to have better sleep at night.
Everyone has a specific amount of hours they need to call it a ‘good’ night sleep, this can be 4 hours for some people or 8/9 for others. Find what works for you.
It’s important you have a good sleeping time where your body and mind can rest to function properly the next day. If you have a habit of staying up late it might be hard for you to go to bed early, you can train your body by sleeping an hour early each day for a week to get into a good routine.
To help you sleep early, you can do things like drinking a relaxing drink, for example, a herbal tea, listen to a calming soundtrack, practice yoga or stretches, read a nice book, take a relaxing warm bath or change the room and the place you sleep in.
Another thing that might help you to have better sleep is putting your home in ‘sleeping mode’, when you get closer to your sleeping time, lower the lightning into a calming and relaxing mood also lower the brightness of any device you use, this will send better signals to your mind in order to encourage sleep.
Improve the way you wake up
One of the habits that prevent you from waking early or have a nice morning is the way in which you wake up, most people wake up now on a phone alarm that you can switch off and sleep again you may also tend to check any kind of social profiles while you still sleepy that might prevent your productivity and fill your mind with things that don’t really matter.
It is better to wake up on a traditional alarm and keep it away from your bed to encourage yourself to get up out of bed. If you still want to go with your phone alarm, disable the snoozing feature and put it away from you so you can be encouraged to get up.
Sometimes what keeps you in bed for a long time is the boring way you wake up to, so keep changing the way you wake up! Come up with new, fun, and creative ways. For example, you could wake up to a different song each day.
Break The Routine
It might be a strange tip for some, but a good morning routine doesn’t have to be exactly the same every day, that’s a definite way to get bored quickly, and no-one wants that.
So mix it up!
Try new things, see what works best for you and be adaptable.
Keeping it exciting and enjoying the little things help you to have a fresh, healthy, and full of energy morning.
If you always have breakfast at home, go to the gym at 8 am, walk your dog at 9 am, take a shower after you might lose the excitement and give up on your routine as you do the same things over and over again.
So instead of following a boring routine, over and over again. break it once awhile with simple steps and moves like having breakfast with friends one day and enjoying it alone at a coffee shop the next, discover new sports once in a while and challenge yourself.
Try these techniques and tips above and see which suit you the best, productivity as an entrepreneur is super important so don’t be afraid to try new things and see what works best for you!
