Check Your Phone First Thing Each Morning? BIG Mistake!

Are you one of those people that roll over in bed and immediately check their phone when waking each morning?

Well here’s your warning – stop what you’re doing right now!

Apparently getting on the phone and checking the weather (or how many people liked that photo you posted) is the worst thing you can do to kick off your day.

According to Michael McQueen, the author of Momentum: How to Build it, Keep it, or Get it Back, those first ten minutes of day are crucial to the success of our week.

Talking to News.com.au, he said jumping on your phone first thing in the morning puts you in a reactive frame of mind.

Instead, we should be doing something proactive that makes us feel in control.

“Something simple like making the bed or being grateful for what you achieved the day before can make all the difference,” he said.

“The idea is it’s you deliberately doing something rather doing something unintentionally.”

It’s all about doing something positive to set your daily chain of events in motion.

And let’s be honest, it’s easy to get out on the wrong side of the bed when you realise you have to trudge to work in the rain (or only your mum liked that photo).

So rather than focusing on what the day holds, focus on what makes you feel good and take a moment to feel all that positive energy flow through you.

And feel grateful at least your mum always has your back.
