So far you’ve probably heard of a morning routine a million times. Every successful person, coach, a guru is talking about that. There are so many videos on YouTube covering that subject, a bunch of books about morning routines, and of course millions of articles all over the internet. So, what’s all that fuss about?
Many millionaires swear by their morning routines, and they even go that far to say that their morning routine is the reason why they are so successful. If the morning routine is the key to success then you should definitely come up with yours as fast as possible.
Here are some tips:
Be careful what you do when you wake up and right before you fall asleep
15 minutes right after we wake up and 15 minutes before we fall asleep are the most important, that is the time when we are more open to suggestions because our mind is still somewhere in between conscious and unconscious. Make sure to avoid any negativity, pessimism, and anything that can bring you down. What you want to do instead is listen or watch some positive and inspirational videos/podcasts, or say your affirmations, what are you grateful for… anything that will lift your energy up and help you start your day positively.
You definitely want to include this in your morning routine (you can do it in the evening as well). When we are grateful we can’t be angry and have negative thoughts, gratefulness makes us feel positive, happy, and full of love. So, each morning take some time and think of 3 ordinary (everyday) things you are grateful for. You can be grateful for the sun that woke you up, for the smell of fresh air when you opened your window, for the wind in your hair, for having a beautiful family, for your children, for your partner…
Make sure to exercise
Our physical health is a representation of our mental strength. If we are not fully aligned with ourselves, if we are not fully satisfied with the life we live then that will reflect on our body and the way we look. It’s all about balance. To achieve the balance you need to balance out both – your physical strength and look, and your mental health.
Learn something new
Just imagine if you learn only one thing each day for the rest of your life how many things you would know in the next 12 months? The best time for learning is in the morning, that is when you are fully rested, your mind is not stuffed with everyday things, and if you start your day learning something new you will feel better and more confident.
Work on your goals
We often set our goals and forget about them. How do you plan to achieve something if you are not working on that? Take some time in the morning, read your goals, and as you read visualize them, and think of one thing that you can do today that will move you forward to achieving your goal.
