Hands down, the #1 habit you can acquire to become successful is developing a morning routine! Having a morning routine is not just about getting up early and performing activities, it’s setting an intention to put yourself FIRST. It’s a statement that You are Important!
It’s important to include something for your mind, body and soul in your morning routine. The quality of your routine is more important than the quantity. Your morning routine can be as long (or short) as you deem necessary.
Some of the benefits I receive from my morning routine includes:
- Mental Health
It sets the tone of my day by putting myself first.
The activities I perform in my routine includes: prayer, LIVE broadcasts (for accountability), eating, blogging (and/or journaling), social media posts, studying, working out and meditation.
My day begins FIRST with gratitude and setting my intentions for the day.
If you’re having trouble getting up early, get accountability. For example, if you want to include working out early in your routine, arrange to meet someone at the gym or schedule a personal trainer to train you.
If you want to be more positive, optimistic and have control of your day, develop a morning routine.
If you’re not aware, I film a LIVE Facebook broadcast called “Transform Your Life in 15 Minutes!” This is a great way to begin your morning routine. It’s 5-minute exercises – one each for the Mind, Body & Soul.
