2. Exercise
Exercise is an essential part of a healthy morning routine. It gets your heart pumping and your juices flowing. Take a quick run, a brisk walk — whatever your workout of choice is. You’re probably thinking that getting ready for work and getting the kids ready for school is all you have time for. Make the time. It’s worth setting your alarm a half hour earlier if necessary. Not only will exercise jumpstart your day, it will make it easier to wind down and fall asleep at night..

3. Map Out Your Day
Create a game plan for your day and write it down. Think about what you need to get done, what you want to accomplish and come up with a quick to-do list for making it happen. You’ll be amazed at how this tiny step focuses you, helps you avoid time-wasting distractions and and makes you so much more productive.
