Before jumping out of bed in the morning or reaching for your phone, take a moment to breathe. Even if it is just one big inhale and exhale, use the pause as a moment to slow down your day.
Some mornings I wake up and before I can stop my mind it is listing off the many things I need to do. I start organizing my day or reading through emails and I’ve already lost track of time. Take control of your mornings by not rushing into anything. A few moments of mindfulness will translate into a clearer day.

Before getting out of bed in the morning take a moment to focus on your breathing. Once you feel your breathing is even slowly climb out of bed and start your day.
