According to a Harvard psychologist…

Mornings are tough, no denying that. We struggle to get out of bed, or brush our teeth without falling asleep on the toilet seat.

But, Harvard psychologist, Amy Cuddy, recommends one simple task that would not just make our mornings better, but our entire day.

Stretch your body as wide as possible, before you even put one foot on the floor.

We bet you’ve never heard of such a strange task have you? Usually, it’s either – drink lemon water, or brush your teeth, or wash your face.

Cuddy, in fact, highlights the importance of stretching, to improve our posture, which in turn influences our thoughts and emotions.

You know how you feel more confident, when you sit up straighter, or stand up just slightly taller? The same goes for stretching.

She says that, “the people who wake up like this are super happy, like annoyingly happy.”

Stretching out your whole body and feeling ‘huge’, the minute you open your eyes, will leave you feeling huge, powerful, and more confident the entire day.

She says that, “If you sleep in a fetal ball…we have some preliminary evidence that people who wake up like that wake up much more stressed out.”

So start your day on the right foot, and stretch yourself out, it will leave you feeling happier in the long run too.
