After the weekend, waking up on Monday morning can be challenging. You wake up feeling exhausted, stressed out, and often you are frantically scrambling to get out the door. Starting your week off on the wrong foot can actually be harmful for your week because your stress and anxiety can crossover into your work. That’s why it’s always important to ensure that you start each week feeling happy and relaxed.
Do yourself a favor and begin every morning with one of these relaxing activities so you can ensure your day starts off right.
Even though you wake up once your alarm goes off, it takes a while for your body to properly wake up. Once you’re up, spend five to ten minutes stretching every part of your body.
A great way to start your day is to write in a journal. You can write down what you’re grateful for, what you’re doing that day, your goals for the week — or anything else that comes to mind. This will allow you to de-clutter your brain and focus on what’s in front of you.

Enjoy a Cup of Tea
Even if you’re a coffee aficionado, replace your morning cup with a calming cup of herbal tea and you’ll feel instantly more relaxed and refreshed. We recommend making a cup of For Tea’s Sake loose-leaf Let’s Do Breakfast tea which is a basically a wake-up call for your senses.
