Remember that last time you had a really good morning then the rest of the day just magically become better? Well, that is the power of a structured morning routine.
It has been shown time after time the power in which a good morning has. If you look deeper into it, it actually makes sense. Just like the opening paragraph to book the first couple hours of your morning will help make way for the rest of your morning.
While what works for me might not work for you, but you can take some things from my schedule to put into yours. It’s all about testing and seeing what works.
It has been shown countless times the power of having a great breakfast. Richard Branson the CEO of Virgin Airlines likes to eat an Old Fashioned, high fiber breakfast each morning. He is just 1 of a few though.
We as human beings have the amazing capacity to be reborn at breakfast everyday and say, “This is a new day.” – Jack Kornfield
Breakfast is one of the most powerful meals during the day, this is because it starts getting your body going. When your body goes to sleep it then jumps into a fasting period when you wake up your body needs those nutrients. That is where breakfast comes in, to refuel your body.
Some great breakfast examples could be:
The key to getting the perfect breakfast is to understand what works for you. If you do not have the time in the morning to make a full 5-course meal then you can stick to the basics. If time is on your side more power to you. Just do what works for you.
If you have read much into routines and personal growth then you have probably heard how powerful your mind is. The mind can do things we haven’t even begun to realize yet. So it is very important to start learning how to control your thoughts.
Okay when I am talking about controlling your thoughts, I am not talking about how lucy used 99% of her brain and slowed down time. I am talking about what you think about and how you view different things.
There are a few different things in which you can “control” your mindset.
Here are some examples:
Our body loves habits when you think about it every day you are technically on autopilot.
Our body has been developing habits since we were born. Some of the habits you can actually thank your parents for, you probably never wondered why you brush your teeth every morning or how you take a shower every day without even thinking about it.
That is what a habit will do to you, and that what routine will help you develop. Setting a routine that is efficient and will help you develop new healthy habits will get you started to have a perfect morning every day.
As PracticalPyschology stated, using all these habits will not make you successful but we can model them.
Did you know you spend around 1/3 of your life sleeping or on a bed? That is why it blows my mind when I see people with old metal matresses. Okay, I am not saying you need to go and spend a fortune on a mattress. But you do need to have a comfortable mattress in your bedroom.
But you need to take into account how you are going to feel when you wake up. I used to wake up and have to crack my back in almost 10 different ways to get feeling decent. You probably have the same feeling some mornings.
There is usually plenty of mattress stores online and even in an actual store. The great thing about going into a store is you get to really have a feeling for what you will be sleeping on.
Some good places to start shopping are:
This section can correlate with section 3, knowing your goals will get you one step closer to accomplishing them. How can you accomplish something if you do not know what you need to accomplish?
“Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.” – Fitzhugh Dodson
Most highly successful people either create their to-do list the night before or that morning.
Benjamin Franklin woke up every morning and said to himself “What will I do great today”.
Setting goals that are achievable but that can also stretch your mindset is the goal here. If you want to learn more about how to set goals, check out this article.
