Drink a glass of water to hydrate your body and eat some cornflakes or yogurt as well to your digestive system started.
A cup of coffee on an empty stomach is never good. But feel free to have a morning cappuccino once in a while to make you feel good! Find some small rewards that really get you excited to wake upand to start your day. It may be a piece of chocolate or some special treats.
