Waking Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed Too Often..?

Want to have a great day? Bahrain This Week’s All Round Advice column shows you a few cognitive exercises that can get every day off to a great start.

In short: a negative start can make it hard to part the clouds for the rest of the day, making work and healthy interactions more of a challenge. Starting the day on a positive note can lighten up your whole day and help you to perform demonstrably better.

5. Keep smiling as you get out of bed.

6….as you drink a glass of water (don’t dribble)

7.…and as you write down three goals for the day.

And you’re on your way to a great day.  The trick, though (besides not dribbling) is remembering to follow these steps when you first wake-up.  After all, this is the first thing in the morning…
