Excerpt: “To have the day you deserve, start your day by wishing yourself a good morning and asking yourself what you need today,” Dr. Arin N. Reeves JD, PhD, author of In Charge: The Energy Management Guide for Badass Women Who Are Tired of Being Tired, tells Parade. “What does your body need? What does your mind need? What does your spirit need? Starting the day by wishing yourself a good morning and asking yourself what you need reminds you that it is a good morning indeed, and if you are good today, you will have a good day.” That said, you’ll still have to do the work, Dr. Reeves notes.
“There is no detour around or shortcut through this natural law. You have to be good for your day to be good. And, when you are good, you will bring that good energy to the people you care for, the goals you want to achieve, and the tasks on your to-do list,” she says. “You deserve a good day today, so start the day by prioritizing the only person who can make that happen for you.”
