I know it’s important to be productive in the morning as it helps to set up my day at work. So, I thought I would ask a few Telstra people what they do in the morning so that I can get a bit of inspiration. It might even help you too.
Here’s what they told me:
“My morning starts with 30 minutes of yoga, followed by 30 minutes of mindfulness meditation. This allows me some peaceful time to myself, tune into how I am feeling, literally stretch out the tightness from the previous day, and cultivate a sense of calmness before heading into the busy CBD on foot, weather permitting of course!”
Cat Johnson – Talent Acquisition Partner
“Besides the fact that I do have a coffee when I get to work, I try to do a bit of exercise in the morning. I walk my dog first thing, and I also try to get off the train a few stops early and walk to work.
“Being sleepy usually makes me feel lazy, so walking my dog in the morning – rain, hail or shine – really starts my day off well and helps me to wake up.”
Cameron Hayes – Business Capability Lead
“I’m also a big fan of breakfast. I’m not sure it’s the most important meal of the day but on the weekend, it usually comes with bacon, which can only make my morning better.”
Jen Brownlee – Change Catalyst
Marjan Oloumi Yazdi – Performance Specialist
“Also after 30-something years of skipping it, I now have breakfast every day. I find it gets me going for what’s ahead and it’s so much better than an extra shot of coffee in a flat white.”
Heidi Harley – Learning Business Partner
So there you have it: the top five things I need to start doing in the morning, so I can get the most out of my day at work. I hope you find some inspiration from these suggestions too.
