As a busy small business owner, you might feel the need to check your email and social media as soon as you wake up. When you do this, it puts you in a reactive state for the remainder of the day.
As an alternative, try making the first few hours of the morning about you, so that you can be the best you can for family and customers. Your morning routine may include meditation, prayer, journaling, listening to a podcast, working out, or some other activity. Once you’ve taken care of yourself and started the day on your own terms, you can then check your social media and email with a better sense of control instead of letting it dictate how you start your day.
