Once you wake up, focus on things that will nourish your mind and body rather than checking your emails or messages. A healthy lifestyle is one of the keys that will boost work ethic and company growth. In the morning focus on connecting with nature, eat fruits & vegetables, and listen to podcasts or music that will give you motivation.
