Other mornings, it's easier to pull the covers up a little higher and sleep for a few more minutes.
Either way, your feet find their way to the floor and you go about the routine to start your day.
Now that you're up, there's a secret to ensuring that you will have the energy, spirit and correct attitude to get through your day.
Wear a blue shirt.
It can be any kind of blue shirt, but cotton is best for this time of year. It can be navy blue, indigo, even turquoise, although you're starting to introduce green. But that's OK. As long as the shirt is primarily blue, you're on your way to an amazing day.
There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of books that offer secrets to a successful approach to life.
But really now, it all comes down to a simple wardrobe choice.
What would the world be like if Shakespeare never existed?
For one, the bird population in Central Park would look quite different.
On March 6, 1890, a New York pharmaceutical manufacturer named Eugene Schiefflin released 60 starlings into Central Park, following his plan to introduce every species of bird mentioned in Shakespeare into the New World.
Those 60 birds swelled to more than 200 million birds today. They are seemingly everywhere.
The choices are all good, as there are thousands to choose from and the question is so subjective. What's most surprising is that three Beatles albums made the list. After looking at these again, I can see why.
