In order to start your day, you must own your morning. I have read and studied the most successful people and what they do when they first wake up in the morning. You are setting yourself up for the entire day when you first wake up in the morning. You want to have the right mindset, thoughts, and focus the first thing you get up in the morning. Everyone is given the same amount of time each day, 24 hours. Oprah, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and others are all given the same time as you. But what is it that these people are doing differently that are setting themselves up for the ideal day.
What I have found about these successful people is that they are all incorporating a positive powerful routine that is setting themselves up for achieving the day. Just think of how you start the day is how you will finish the day. Do you want to waste days which turn into months then years? The quality of your life can be changed drastically by changing your habits of what you do when you wake up in the morning. Based off of studies, Mondays have the highest death rate with thousands of people dying due to heart attacks. Imagine this!!! We are given this beautiful gift of life and the majority of people are dying on Monday mornings.
Here is a list of things to do when you first get up in the morning that I have found to help my life significantly as I’ve learned this from the most successful people in the world. The list includes: plan your day the night before, perform some sort of exercise, control your emotions use journaling, blemish out your brain by taking a healthy nutrient, wake up before 8 a.m, develop yourself by using meditation, incorporate gratitude. Once you start developing these tools into your life they will become a habit and will keep you focused on what is most important in your life. It will separate you from all the distractions and negativity. Please avoid checking social media when you first get up in the morning. Put the phone in a different room if you must, but take 30 minutes at least to give yourself space to succeed for the day. If you can stay in the present moment and focus on just today it will make a tremendous impact in your life.
