Wake up Early
Waking up early is a great way to get a head start for the day. Knowing that you have many things to look forward to and achieve in a day is also motivating. You can use your mornings to do something relaxing like reading a book, going for a walk etc. Never hit the snooze button. You might think that a few minutes of extra sleep will help you but in reality, you end up feeling more tired. See what works for you in the morning and choose a ritual accordingly.
Do Important Tasks First
Mornings are the best time to pay attention to the big important tasks as you feel energetic and your mind is ready to focus. You can write down all the tasks you want to complete that day and start with the most important. This way your most productive time is not wasted.
Working out is not only good for the body but it is great for your mind as well. Working out in the mornings is a great way to feel energised and ready for the day. Start off small. Include small workout sessions in your daily routine and build your way up. Keep your routine flexible and don’t set high and unrealistic goals.
Meditation is something most successful people swear by. It is a great way to relax and focus your mind. It prepares you to face the rest of your day and makes you feel calm. You can start by completing focusing on the tasks you do daily like brewing coffee or brushing your teeth. After all meditation is all about the mind.
Focus on Yourself
Before you jump directly into work, take some time for yourself to get ready for what lies ahead. Do things that are most important to you. It can be spending time with kids, writing your journal, reading a book etc. Remember to focus on yourself before you start focusing on the mountain of work ahead.
Your energy for the next day depends on the sleep you had today. Disconnect and relax before you sleep. You can cut off all technology and read a book before bed. You can drink a cup of tea. You can even plan out the clothes for the next day and mentally note down the highs and lows of the day you had at the office. Fully relaxing your mind before bed is important for a great night’s sleep. You also need to right hours of sleep to function properly the next day.
No matter how well planned your day is there is always a chance for disruption and change. Embrace change and adapt to the situation. Be flexible and open to ideas and situations. Remember that everyone has a unique morning routine and you can build one that suits you the best.
