First thing, choose how you start the day based on how it will affect you.
Refrain from reading/watching the news first thing after you wake up.

When you check email or social media first thing—or news—you set yourself up to immediately be influenced by the news or the whim of others. And you know how that goes—either good or bad.
Have you done this? How has it worked for you?
