How are your first 30-60 minutes after waking up every morning?
For me the days when I wake up and decide to postpone the alarm for 5 more minutes of sleep, followed by taking my cell phone and immediately checking the emails or seeing what the world is like on Instagram, or simply engaging in negative thoughts or Worry about everything I have to do during the day and the stress of what is coming ... immediately determines my whole day ahead, such as my level of anxiety, followed by bad decisions regarding food and seeing obstacles instead of opportunities.

I know is scary to take such a big responsibility, and is easier to feel like victims of our circumstances, blaming others, the situations, the weather, irritating husband or wife, the horrible boss, the boring job, the government, etc.[…]
