Great for your mental health

Makes you feel good
I love it when I am dressed and ready for the day in the morning. Being an early bird has loads of benefits and I have started enjoying them since I switched from a night owl to an early bird. I feel so good.
I honestly cannot remember when last I stayed in my pyjamas until noon at home. It doesn’t happen here. I am up bright and early, showered and dressed early in the morning. My mental and physical health thanks me for it and I have carried on with my routine even in the lockdown. I am actually up earlier now that we have more time in the morning with no school run. It works for me and may work for you too. If you are struggling to get work done now, try these tips and see how it goes. Stay safe.
