Happy Bit: What To Do When You Wake Up On the Wrong Side of the Bed

Have you ever woken up exhausted, grumpy or unready to face the day? In this Happy Bit I give you 3 strategies that will boost your mood, energy and focus on those really tough mornings and so you don't have to spend the morning wanting to bite people's heads off!)

I woke up grumpy…

I had a rough night due to being woken up by the same unnamed teenager 3 TIMES, so I woke up critical and negative. After laying into my husband because his sideburns looked “crazy,” I knew the problem wasn't him, it was me. So I had to create an intervention for my mood, which led me to go to my old standbys:

3 Strategies To Boost Your Mood and Energy on Those Tough Mornings:

  1. Gratitude & vision journaling.
  2. Exercise and upbeat music.
  3. Create a NEW plan for your day concentrating not just on the WHAT, but on the WHY (taken from Tony Robbins' RPM method). For example, I needed to record this Happy Bit this morning (my WHAT) but I didn't feel super motivated until I connected with my BIG WHY: “I want to help women rise and embrace their power to create lives of happiness and purpose.”

My energy went back to mostly normal and I found the focus, motivation and clarity I need to have the great day I've come to expect. Try them for yourself and let me know how they work by emailing me at!
