By necessity, I start my day very early. Many nurses do. Working a shift that requires you to be ready to work with people at 5:30am does not make you a morning person. I know, I encounter them every day - still sleeping on the shuttle, at the coffee pot, headphones in so not to have to interact, For some, I just know better than to say "Good Morning!"
If you have to hold yourself back when someone says "Good Morning" too early... this may be for you.
How we get our day started is sometimes crucial to how the rest of the day will go. It's easy to stumble into the day, waking up as we go - shower, dress, coffee... not necessarily in that order. That’s normal for most people.
What if there were ways to start your morning.. that eliminate the need to every remind anyone that you are not a morning person? a more pleasant way to wake? Would you be open to trying something new?
If you’re willing to change things up some, you may still be more of a nightowl than a morning person, but you may be able to experience morning in a whole new light. (wink)
In fact, you may wonder why you didn’t change things sooner! The following suggestions help, they may lead to an entirely enjoyable morning - believe it or not!
