How do you start your day? You get out of the bed. You clean teeth and face. You have a breakfast and you get ready to a working day. Yes, it is so. But at the same time it isn’t. Every single day is started with the morning, as a rule. But any people just underestimate their morning: they spend it being half-sleepy, performing usual actions.
Then it turns out that way, the morning becomes just a part of the day that started somehow; something was done, something wasn’t; and then a person gets into the day’s “body” by performing their job and interacting with other people.
But what would happen if a person could percept every morning as something magical, as something that is a new turning point of their 24-hour long life, as the capital letter of their reality’s chapter? There are not that many people who think about that, but such attitude causes really amazing effects onto the whole day that passes: it influences the mood, the tone and even events that happen during the day.
If you have the wish to make your life a bit better without going into complicated techniques and maneuvers, you will probably like ways to start the day effectively, that are described below in this article. Let’s take a look at them.

Once you wake up, devote 15 minutes to visualization before getting out of the bed. Imagine that you are not in your house or apartment, but somewhere on the island, for instance. You awakened in a bungalow on the seaside, palms and ocean waves are nearby, and a slight breeze flows.
You are alive and happy. Get into a state of peacefulness, even if you are going to be in a metro train or public bus in 40 minutes.

Read these phrases as soon as you wake up. This trick is really powerful and effective. Moments after awakening are perfect to be used for changing your life “settings” which affected you for years. New positive ones will not only make your day better, but will improve the whole life in future.
