What happens in the first hour of your day usually sets the tone for the rest of the day to follow…either positive or negative.
What has been proven most useful to get the best out of each day is to be proactive and “Set Your Own Tone” for the day.
What is needed to “Set the Tone” in a positive way, is to increase your self worth or to increase the worth of your life and this can be accomplished in 2 ways:
1. Affirmations. An affirmation in the form of a saying or declaration is powerful such as; “I am feeling great today and it is going to get better,” or, “I have a great life and am thankful for everything in it”. Something that states how “sweet” you or your life is.
2. Doing something good for yourself, like eating healthy or a little exercise.
By doing either of the 2 at the beginning of the day, it will help “Set the Tone” for the rest of the day. And in doing so, you will increase your chances of having a great day as you took control and “Set the Tone”!!

That’s great advice and it REALLY works! Another thing that I’ve found useful over the years is to write a goal down (in large, easy to read letters) and post it above your bed and/or on the wall or bedside table so that you see it before you go to sleep AND first thing when you wake up. It works wonderfully for 30 day goals, Self Affirmations, reminders, etc.
I like to pump up the jams in the morning and turn on all the lights. Music and light greatly effect my mood and temperament, so controlling those two things helps set the tone for my morning.
And I get a little exercise at the same time!
