When it comes to setting yourself up for a productive day – one where you accomplish your to-do list with a positive mindset – it usually starts from the moment you wake up in the morning. Following are 9 simple ways you can set the tone for your day each morning.

First things first: set a routine and follow it. While it may be tempting to hit that snooze button and avoid that morning walk or exercise class, try to make whatever you implement into your routine a habit. And remember practice makes perfect.
