When you get a good night's sleep you can roll out of bed feeling confident and unconquerable. When you get enough sleep it gives you the energy you need to start the day off on the right foot. You will have the clarity, motivation, and the energy you need to be confident and successful at whatever you do. However, a good night's sleep isn't all you can do to motivate and energize yourself to have a good day! There are a few other things you can do to give you confidence and energy to rule the day. We've come up with a list of a few simple things that will help you kick-start your day with confidence and motivation. Here a few things you can do to have a higher-energy day:



You need to get a good night's sleep. Getting a good night's sleep recharges you both physically and mentally. It's a physical break from the business of the day, and a time for your brain to sort out problems, organize thoughts, and re-energize itself. With a good night's sleep you will feel like you can accomplish almost anything. Having a good mattress and a pillow that supports your head and neck properly are essential to getting a good night's sleep.

Wash your face in the morning. When you sleep the oils and dead skins on your face build up, especially if you sleep with an eye mask or sweat while you sleep. Washing your face with a good exfoliator and following it up with a face moisturizer will clean your skin from the oils and dead skins cells that built up during sleep. If you splash your face with cold water, it will also help you wake up and feel more alert.

Eat a healthy, balanced breakfast. Your body goes into "fasting mode" while you sleep. Throughout the day, you eat with about three or four hours between meals -- maybe even less! But when you sleep, your body doesn't get food for a solid seven to nine hours. Your metabolism adjusts slightly to accommodate the lesser amount of energy you expend while you sleep and the fact that you aren't feeding yourself while you sleep. A balanced breakfast helps to jump start your metabolism and gives you the energy you will need for the rest of the day.

Dress for success. Dressing in clean clothes that fit well makes you feel good about yourself and gives you confidence. It also shows the people around you that you mean business!

Put on a smile. Being optimistic about the day gives you confidence. If you are worrisome then it can burden your mentally and can start to take a toll physically too.
