  1. Make time for breakfast rather than rushing with a mug of coffee in your car. Enjoy the breakfast together, you have been fasting all night, you need to energise your body.
  2. While at breakfast help their day with a positive note-smile, make eye contact, and ask how they are. Avoid bringing up any negative conversations as an argument you may have had with them the day before.
  3. No matter whether you walk, drive, cycle, or take a bus/train, decide that you will have a relaxing /stress-free commute to work this time in ways that make you feel good – by listening to a motivational speaker, listening to music or reading a book!
  4. If you are not a morning person, make an effort to always act positive and happy, both with your family & and colleagues in the workplace.
    “Practice to smile as often as you can and you will see a big difference in your life”.
