Sound familiar? Instead of the old routine, try getting up afew minutes earlier and using these five strategies to awaken your senses andactually enjoy your morning.

1. Immerse yourself in your surroundings.
Each day make a conscious effort to open the window, stepoutside and observe the world around you. Open your eyes, and the mind willfollow.

2. Play music early and often.
Balance out your alarm clock with some happy music. Even ifyou only have 15 minutes to get ready, play some tunes in the background to getinto a rhythm early on in your day.

3. Move around.
Hit the ground running with an early walk or jog. Or touchthe sky with some morning yoga poses. Get your blood circulating and you’ll bemuch more alert than you would be sitting in a chair reading the paper.

4. Treat your nose.
Whether its bath soap, fresh flowers or ground coffee, makecertain to liven up your olfactory senses with some pleasing morning scent. Useeach scent as a method of establishing yourself in the present moment.

5. Taste something good.
Leave the Pop Tarts in the box. Go for nutritious, tastebud-pleasing breakfasts such as oatmeal, whole grain breads and fresh fruitsinstead.

Involve your senses early in the day and you may findyourself more alert, more optimistic, and more productive as time goes on!
