The Importance of a Great Morning and How to Start Your Day Right
The Importance of a Great Morning
A lot of people want to know how they can have a more productive way. They look at time management strategies, ways to organize and plan their day so they can accomplish more with their time. Others look at activities they can partake in throughout the day to feel more energized and have more energy for their work. These things are all well and good on their own, but if you’re looking for ways to have more energy, be more productive, be happier and accomplish more each day, you have to start your day off right with a great morning.
A great morning is always the beginning of a great day, and without a great start, you simply can’t have the day that you want.
No matter what you try to do throughout the day, if you have started your day off right, you’re always playing catch up and making up for the not so great morning. The best success habit you can start to incorporate into your days right now is a great morning strategy.
How to Start Your Day Right
Here are some key strategies to starting your day off right. If you follow these steps, you will have a great morning and the rest of the day will follow.
1. Get Up Early
A great morning starts early. You can’t have a great day if you’re laying in bed until noon trying to find the energy to wake up. Any successful entrepreneur will tell you that they either try to beat the sun up, or wake up before it. If you’re waking up later than 7am, you’re lazy and you’re wasting time in bed.
Your body is programmed to sleep when the sun goes down and wake up when it comes up. This might not be practical in countries in the far reaches of the northern hemisphere, but in most countries of the world, this is what you should be doing. If you’re aged between 18-64, you only need 7-9 hours of sleep, preferably 7. This gives enough time for your body and mind to rest and get ready for a new day.
Get in the habit of waking up early and use this added time for some more ways to have a great morning.
The best time to workout is the morning. Working out in the morning is a great way to wake up, clear your mind and get prepared for the day. You will feel more energized and burn those extra calories all day as your heart will be working that much faster.
Exercise in general is a great idea, and finding the motivation to workout in the morning will be a great habit to make sure you get in the right shape, have more energy, and feel great all day to get all of your work done.
3. Feed Your Mind
Every morning, you should include some time for your education and mental health. No matter what field you are currently working in, what plans you have for your future, and what self development goals you have for yourself, you can find some knowledge that you can consume each day.
Whether its an audio book, a motivational and inspirational training program, or a business and entrepreneurship book, take 30-60 minutes each morning to feed your mind with the relevant knowledge that you need to grow in every aspect of your life.
You don’t want to stay stagnant and fester as other people learn and advance. Make sure you include some educational, inspirational, and motivational content into your great mornings to set you up for a great day.
4. Eat the Right Breakfast
You have to ensure that you keep your body healthy and energized by consuming natural and nutritious foods, and no daily meal is more important than breakfast. Starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast is going to be a key determining factor that decides whether you’re going to be energized and motivated all day, or tired and lethargic.
After you’ve completed your morning workout, enjoy a breakfast with some tea or coffee and some dried fruits, boiled eggs, milk or real fruit juice. Fruits and fruit juices should be kept to a minimum, but a small and nutritious breakfast is essential to making sure you feed your body as you’re feeding your mind.
By taking care of the steps above, you will ensure that you have a great morning every morning and set yourself up for a productive day. By waking up that much earlier, you not only wake up at a healthier time, you get to exercise to take care of your body and educate yourself every single day. Your life will improve exponentially every year,even if you strive to improve yourself by 1% each day.
Start your day off with a great morning and have the energy and the knowledge that you need for a productive day.
