When it’s time to wake up and greet the day do you do so with a smile or with a cranky, “Don’t talk to me yet” attitude? There are people on both ends of the spectrum but the ones who wake up with the right mindset are far more likely to make the most of each day. Early morning hours are the best time to reflect, and get more in tune with who you are and where you want to go. There are so many benefits to being a morning person and beginning your day with the right attitude.
Time to think
– When you wake up early while everyone else in the family is still asleep you have time to be alone with your thoughts. There are no phones ringing or children needing your undivided attention. You have ample time to be creative, think about the day ahead and what you want to accomplish, and even do some quiet meditation.
This is your time to contemplate on decisions that need to be made and the progress you want to make throughout the day. In this fast paced world it seems like there is rarely a moment to stop, take everything in, and just be. This is one of the many benefits of waking up early and starting you day off right.
– If you start your day by giving yourself a few extra hours in the morning you are bound to be more productive throughout the day. There is an open window of opportunity when you give yourself more time to plan, prepare, and take action. There are not nearly as many distractions in the early morning to keep you from accomplishing what needs to be done and you will find that time goes by faster because you are doing more throughout the day.
Try giving yourself an extra hour or two in the morning and see how much more you can accomplish. Those who take advantage of that time should see a greater amount of success in their life and business.
– Giving yourself some extra time in the morning will allow you to eat breakfast, which is by far the most important meal of the day. Eating a healthy meal for breakfast gets your creative juices flowing, and allows you the energy to start the day off on the right foot.
So many people wake up rushed and wind up skipping breakfast altogether. This leaves them feeling groggy, unmotivated, and sluggish during the day. It’s important to make breakfast part of the morning routine not only to give yourself the best start to your day but simply because it’s healthier to do so.
Time for Exercise
– Working out is something that people tend to skip because they simply don’t have enough time. Waking up earlier gives you more time to start an exercise routine. It’s been said that the early morning is the best time to work out because it leaves you feeling energized and ready to take on the world. Combine that with a healthy breakfast and you can’t go wrong. It not only makes you feel great but it will be much easier to stick to once you have a specific time to work it into your schedule.
No matter how you have started the day in the past, you can always begin anew and make the most of those early morning hours. Those who take advantage of this time understand how important a few extra hours can be to having a successful day. Once you get into the habit of doing this you will find it’s much easier to wake up feeling happy, energized, and ready to start the day. Follow a few of these tips and you will be on you way to a less stressful, more productive life.
