Hmm, perfect morning? Perhaps you’re thinking: “You haven’t experienced one of MY mornings!”
We get it.
However, if you could follow just 5 simple tips to make your day start GREAT almost every day, would you be willing to try? Check out how easy it can be …
1. Make an Urgent vs. Important List
Start each morning with joggin’ the noggin’ and breakdown your daily to-do list. It can be overwhelming to think about what you have to accomplish in one day. But if you prioritize your list between what must be done today vs. what is ideally done today, it will better support your time management and stress levels.
2. Do Some ‘Flowy’ Movement
Your mindset is directly impacted by your body’s feedback loops, which include digestive and mechanical. If you feel stiff throughout the day, it can register as a downer! Through yoga, foam rolling or a brisk workout, your brain will be primed for a creative and productive day.

3. Eat a Protein- and Fat-Dominant Breakfast
Feeding your brain properly upon waking is critical, as it sets your blood sugar level for the next 24 hours. Experiment and find what works best for you. An easy solution is to enjoy VIBE each morning to provide a well rounded, vegan breakfast that is packed with protein and healthy fat. Additionally, the Zychrome® in VIBE will support healthy insulin levels!
4. Find Your Caffeine Sweet Spot
Everyone responds to caffeine differently. Be mindful when it comes to your daily consumption and how much you rely on it to motor you through the day. Beware of using caffeine as a crutch to keep you awake or alert. This usually means you are skipping out on quality sleep at night and quality meals throughout the day.
5. Go to Bed on Time
Shocking, right? Sleep tends to be the first “time saving” activity when we are slammed with work and life. DON’T DO IT! Prioritize a fresh start to each morning by tucking yourself into bed early enough to allow for a morning routine. If you wake up late and start rushed, your day will feel hectic. Instead, champion getting 8 hours of sleep each night and you will immediately notice that the day greets you a little brighter.
