In this article, I hope to share a few ways I start my day to make sure I have a great day every single day. These are only suggestions but I hope to impart with you the message that the way you spend you first hour in the morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.
Here is the number 1 thing I love to do first thing in the morning to start the day off right: I read 1 hour of inspirational material. Whether its success books or anything like that, it's important to feel your brain with positive messages early in the morning. This will benefit the rest of your day. Of course, there are other great alternatives to reading first thing in the morning but by far the best way to start your day in my opinion is to read something inspirational. Maybe you could just read some inspirational quotes or some inspirational stories or something like that. It doesn't matter what it is really. All that matters is that you're trying to force yourself to have a positive waking hour.
Here are some other ideas that I have about great ways to start your morning... First things first, you could exercise! Right as you wake up, put on your jogging pants and your running shoes and go for a half hour walk or something. This is done before or after your 1 hour of inspirational reading.
Another really important thing you can and should do is visualize/pray/meditate every single morning. This is huge. It will really improve your mindset for the rest of the day and the benefits are endless...
After you have taken care of all that, you should make sure you have a really great breakfast. Eat breakfast like a king! Take your shower and there you go, you are fully prepared - physically and mentally for a really great day! That is my intention for you. The best days are all in the set up. It's all about how you set up your day. So, in my opinion, if you set up your day in a good way by following these suggestions I have made, you are setting yourself up for success!
Don't forget to indulge in a good coffee or two also if that's your thing!
Now that we have your morning taken care of... what else can you do to improve your day? Well, let's get back to reading. Another really great investment of time early in the day is to do an hour of reading in your field. The purpose of this is so you can stay in the loop of what's going on in your industry. You have to stay ahead of the game and the only way you can do that is by finding out what people in your industry are doing now...
The rest of the day is up to you but I guarantee you that if you set yourself up for success in this way, you'll be way ahead of the pack in a million and one ways.
