Because Mondays are the worst!

You hit that snooze button one too many times and before you know it you have 10 minutes to get out the door and you really need about 30. I do this way too many times than I'm willing to admit, but I will tell you it absolutely ruins my entire day.

Here are 5 tips that I try to do each morning so that I will be motivated and productive throughout the day!

1. Set your alarm an hour before you "need" to be up so that way if you do get a couple of extra Zzz's you're still going to have time to have an extra cup of coffee and maybe listen to the new song that your favorite cover band just released as you prep yourself for the day ahead.

2. Eat a healthy breakfast. My favorite is a spinach and egg white omelet with a dash of smoked paprika on top, a piece of whole grain toast and fresh berries on the side. Anything high in protein will keep you full all morning so that you can resist that midmorning snack!

Leaving my house without breakfast and coffee almost always results in me stopping by Starbucks on the way to work where I always pay $7+ for a (large) cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich. Eating breakfast before you leave your house is not only healthier for you, but it's healthier for your piggy bank too!

3. Check one thing off your to do list before you start your day. This is something I plan to do daily. It is that first ounce of motivation that just gets my whole day rolling! Th
