Therefore, I usually wake up at 7:30. First, I need a coffee, like most of us, I assume
After that, I need a good music. I like rock and roll, but I can't listen Motorhead or Metallica early in the morning I usually listen some reggae or jazz.
First thing I do is surfing...nothing related to work. I came up with the conclusion that reading emails as a first thing in the morning, can be very stressful. Don't read your emails as soon as you wake up!!! Instead of that,I like to browse for news - sport, weather, politics, local news..anything.
After that relaxing time, I start to work. First I check on my Paypal After that, I separate most important emails and reply. I call this "warming up period". Then I start with the "real job".
I forgot to say- i make pauses.Small breaks like 5-10 minutes every 60-90 minutes. I go on Facebook, write a message to some friends, or just doing nothing for the 10 minutes. sometimes I also lay on the bed and listening music, two or three songs. I need to think about my spine It isn't healthy sitting on a chair for 8 hours.
These are my "tips" . I would love to read how are you dealing with everyday stress and how your working day starts?
