About This Quiz

As Mary Poppins notes, "Well begun is half done." That means that if you start your day properly, thus beginning it well, then you're halfway towards doing a splendid job! It's actually truer than it sounds; if you get off to a running start, you can ensure that the bulk of your habits and choices are good ones, and minimize the portion of the day in which your weaker willpower allows you to sabotage your goals.

The key to a good morning routine is to get in a good breakfast, then figure out what your other priorities are. There are plenty of healthy options here. If you can get in some fresh air and exercise, that's ideal. If you can arrange your commute so that you aren't too stressed out, that's also a great way to boost your health. Taking care of a pet or children can slow you down, but it's also an opportunity for a moment of connection and caring that fills you with positive hormones like dopamine and oxytocin, and lowers the blood pressure.
