Never do these things first in the morning

Always try to start your day with exercise, yoga or even dancing. While some might prefer reading news or listening to music. Here are the most-common things you should avoid for a good day.
Hot shower: Hot shower is too relaxing as it will lower the heart rate, meaning you will feel less energetic. Instead, take a short cold shower. Your body will jump into action and make you feel fresh and more productive.
Drink coffee: Coffee is a common practice for many, but the first thing you should avoid. Never ever have coffee before 9.30 am, as the human body tends to produce higher amounts of cortisol, the stress hormone, which regulates energy, between 8 and 9 am. Coffee will reduce cortisol production, which means you will be left with less energy and creating the problem you fear.
Making phone calls: No one wants to talk to anyone as the first thing in the morning. Almost every person needs a few hours to get their head around the day and it is not appropriate to make phone calls before 9.30 am. If you really want to talk to someone, send a text message detailing the context.
Carb-only breakfast: Make sure to include some carbohydrates in your breakfast, but it shouldn't be entirely carbs. Include items like eggs, cereals, milk or almonds which are rich in protein.
Check email: Never ever check your email as soon as you wake up. E-mails will make you nervous or at least tense and give a feeling that the issues are never going to end. Those who tend to check their emails as a morning ritual will never recover.
