Make Mornings Happy

Nothing beats that rare occasion where you open your eyes first thing in the morning and feel happy. Not tired or grumpy or annoyed that you aren’t still asleep or put off by the fact it reads “Monday” on your calendar or dreading that meeting you have in the afternoon, but happy right from the get-go, as you leap out of bed, skip down the stairs and slurp on a nice glass of OJ ready to kick the day’s butt.

The problem is: we all know this feeling is seldom. But what you might not realise is that it doesn’t have to be. That’s right. There are some scientifically proven ways you can be happier at dawn and, who knows, maybe even become a morning person over time.

So, without further ado, let’s get on with being happier people shall we:

A Boudoir Of Bouquets

Us girls love flowers, but there’s never a time we love them more than first thing in the morning. In fact, in a recent study, those girls that saw a gorgeous arrangement of fresh flowers when they first woke up showed signs of bursting happiness, reduced levels of anxiety, and were more energetic at work. We’re not saying you should swap your morning coffee for a bunch of tulips, but you might want to start sipping your coffee surrounded by them.

Sleeping On The Right Is Alright

We’ve all heard that a great mattress is important for a good night’s sleep. But there is something else you can do to enhance your happy feelings after you’ve been onto and bought a top-notch mattress, and it’s called sleeping on your right side. The reason for this is two-fold. Sleeping on your left will put pressure on your organs while sleeping on your right will help you have more lucid and mellow dreams; the sort that dances around themes of love, joy and peace. 

Fresh OJ To Start The Day

Nothing is more of a tonic for tired eyes than a glass of sunshine. Think about it. Chugging down a glass of OJ is like chugging down the bright rays of sunshine, which has got to be good for your mood. But that’s not all. It’s also high in vitamin B6 and folic acid, and that stuff is known to help with depression, so imagine what it could do to your mornings. And yet there is one more thing: just the smell of orange, whether fresh or in essential oil form, can help with anxiety too. It’s the gift that just keeps giving.

Go To Bed Early

There is nothing cryptic about this one. Going to be earlier, even if it’s just an hour or so, will mean you are better rested, more alert and more optimistic about what the day ahead has in store. But that’s not all because when you lose sleep you also lose your sense of humour, and that’s no joke. So, if you want to wake up happy, call it a night at 9.30pm from now on.
