Every wonder what sets highly successful people apart from “regular” people? There are a multitude of different factors, but one of the most influential of them all is their morning ritual. If you want to transform the way you live and how you get things done, take a look at the six things highly successful people do in the morning and consider making them a part of your morning ritual.
1. A Power Workout
A rigorous workout, even if it’s just 20 minutes long, is one of the most effective ways to kick start your day and clear your head. Some of the most successful minds in the world wake up at the crack of dawn to get in a good workout session. It doesn’t have to be grueling; find your niche workout whether it’s boxing, tennis, or cycling and get it in right at the start of the day. You’ll instantly be put in a great mood and have enough energy to fuel you through your tasks.
2. A Rich Breakfast
When you make a habit of skipping breakfast or eating something with poor nutritional value in the morning, you’re setting yourself up for a bad day. A hefty and healthy breakfast needs to be a part of everyone’s morning ritual and it should be enjoyed slowly, not eaten on the go. Highly successful people pencil in sufficient time in the morning to eat a delicious, protein-packed breakfast to get themselves off on the right foot.
3. A Meditation Session
Meditation isn’t about sitting still and chanting mantras. It’s a quiet time to practice gratitude and reflect. Successful people understand the importance of quiet and stillness, but they also understand the importance of consciously bringing to mind all of the things in their life that they are thankful for. When you acknowledge the good things in your life, it gives you a healthier perspective and a better chance at being productive.
4. Something Green
Remember that nutrient-dense breakfast that you’re going to start eating? Make sure to include something green in it. Leafy greens like spinach and kale offer a numerous amount of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for optimum daily healthy. Make yourself a BLT spinach salad with poached egg or throw some kale into your green smoothie to get your greens in right at the start of the day.
5. Something Ugly
Highly successful people discipline themselves enough to get that one, big, ugly task out of the way first thing in the morning. Instead of trying to ignore it or procrastinate it for as long as possible, take that one thing that you really don’t want to do and complete it before doing any other work. You’ll be amazed at how optimistic and clear-minded you feel after getting it done.
6. A Plan For The Day
Talk to any successful person and there’s a very good chance that they love to plan. Planning is an integral part of progress. Successful people create long-term plans as well as short-term plans. You can plan what you set out to do for the week as well as what you want to complete for the day. Make your to-do list before heading to work or do it the night before.
