1. WAKE UP EARLY
Successful people such as Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Tony Robins wake up at 4 a.m. It has been proven that it’s the most productive time of the day due to a lack of distraction. You will also feel more in control of your life.
You want to be able to wake up early?
Ease into it; set up your alarm a little bit earlier each morning. By waking up early you will be able to do much more, like exercising, self-care, working on your project, planning everything for the day and being ready to conquer your day!
First thing in the morning BEFORE your coffee, is to hydrate your body. During the night you become dehydrated and this is why it is so important. You will start the day hydrated and energized. Water helps also to eliminate toxins and contribute to a healthy system and brain.
Don’t check your phone first thing in the morning. Charge it out of your bedroom. Meditate, exercise or take your shower before opening it. Looking at your phone first thing when you wake up will limit the rest of your day, your mind is put into a catch-up mode and it stresses you out. Take time to catch up with your future goals and dreams before, focus on yourself.
‘’When we wake up in the morning and turn our phone over to see a list of notifications – it frames the experience of waking up in the morning around a menu of all the things I’ve missed yesterday ‘’
– Tristan Harris (Google Design ethicist)
4. FOCUS AND VISUALIZE SUCCESS
Each morning, wake up and think about your dreams, your goals. Think how you can get closer to them, what actions in your day do you need to take to achieve those goals. Think about it, write it if you want to but remind yourself every morning about it. This will help you focus on what is really important to you and get you motivated. Visualize your dreams, visualize yourself getting that college degree or winning at that competition. Take the lead of your life because what you think, you become.
You don’t need to spend 3 hours at the gym each day, by waking up and doing a couple of sets of your favorite exercises, about 10 minutes, you activate your system and get it ready to be proactive during your day. Moving your body in the morning is a really good way to start the day energized on a positive note and as a winner!
6. BE GRATEFUL
Each morning you wake up in your bedroom, maybe with your wife/husband or your dog by your side, the sun is shining, you are healthy. Be grateful for all that you already have. Gratitude will bring only more positivity in your life. You will appreciate the little things even more and become a better version of yourself by practicing it. Just spend 1 or 2 minutes thinking of what you are grateful for in your life and you will easily implement this to your daily routine.
“The reason I picked gratitude is because when you’re grateful you can’t be angry. And when you’re grateful you can’t be fearful. » – Tony Robbins
