With a little bit of science, a dash of self-care, and maybe a delicious breakfast of Wendy’s New Homestyle French Toast Sticks*, you can have your best morning ever.

Prep the Night Before
OK, so it might be a lot to get everything ready the night before. But some basic tidying will let you wake up to a not-messy space, which is crucial for starting your day on the right foot. Make sure you’ve got water to hydrate and set out anything else you might need early: clothes, to-do lists, reminders, and fully charged electronics. The less scrambling you’ll need to do before heading out the door, the more time you’ll have to de-stress and gather your thoughts.
