How you start the day pretty much dictates how the rest of your day will go and in terms of happiness, it is everything! So many people don’t necessarily think about that time period right at the beginning of the day when they wake up. They tend to do more or less the same thing – often putting the alarm back on snooze, or most of the time reaching for their phone and straight away checking for messages, news, email and social media. Then rolling out...

    Comment
