Make four easy changes to your morning routine. You’ll transform the rest of your day.

Here are four a.m. actions to put into practice:

  1. Make it a point to wake up at the same time each day, and set your alarm to awaken you to the sound of a happy tune.
  2. Before your feet hit the floor, spend five minutes taking slow, deep, cleansing breaths.
  3. Once you’re up, try a few sun salutations — the foundational yoga move — to give you energy for the day ahead.
  4. Eat breakfast. A nourishing breakfast — one that’s rich in color, whole grains, protein and nourishing fats — will help you maintain blood sugar levels and control your hunger.

“When you wake up every day, you have two choices. You can either be positive or negative; an optimist or a pessimist. I choose to be an optimist. It's all a matter of perspective.” Harvey Mackay
