So you are still where you were five years ago.
Same old house, your business is still mark timing and the vicious cycle of paying bills and waiting for end month again to get your pay cheque is still the same.
You want to grow, start a side hustle, move to a bigger house, but your salary is only enough to pay bills. Because it’s actually too little to let you save. But then, people are buying houses, moving to posh estates and driving big cars. The difference between you and them is probably how you do things.
To be successful, there are things you must do, and others you must drop. Your morning determines the success of the day. And because we all want to be successful, why not check out these morning routines you should adopt for you to get there:
1. Wake up early
It’s five o’clock and the alarm is beeping to get your from your slumber. But you hit the snooze button three times before waking up at 6 am. See, successful people wake up really early-sometimes as early as 4 am. Because waking up early will not only give you ample time to finish your tasks but you will also be more productive in the morning hours.
With all the morning rush to get to work on time, sparing a few minutes for meditation seems like a waste of time. But in actuality, meditation will help you focus more on what you will be doing during the day. Immediately you wake up, take a few minutes, close your eyes and meditate for some minutes.
3. Don’t grab your phone
It’s tempting to get your phone first thing when you wake up because you want to know what’s happening. You want to see who sent you messages on WhatsApp and whether you have new emails. But this habit may end up ruining your whole day.
Ooh you got no time for exercise in the morning? Well, you better create it because a healthy body means a healthy mind. Run for some minutes, get to the gym or do simple exercises right from your house. As long as you get physical, it’s good enough. You will feel better, get more energy physically, and your brain function will also be on another level.
5. Eat breakfast
Yes, don’t just drink. Eat and eat healthy. You can’t blame your body for failing you while you put no effort to fuel it properly. It’s the most important meal of the day and a healthy breakfast is also great for your mind.
