So you’ve hit a motivational wall and that inner voice is starting to whine.
From the time your alarm clock goes off and you realize that it’s not only dark but cold outside, you draw the comforter to you closer – “I don’t feel like it. I don’t want to get up…get ready, go catch the bus, go to work, go into zombie mode for the rest of workday, come home only to do this all over again…I don’t feel like it.”
And so the narrative goes.
But what if there’s a way to bypass the harsh realities and make your day that much brighter?
When it comes down to it, it’s all about framing, and how you start your day.
Say you want to get the day started on a good note, then – counterintuitively, wake up earlier. Start the day off doing something incredibly exciting that you’ve been put off – do the fun thing first – get happy and then you’ll find the rest of the process is easy peasy.
