4 Morning Habits That Guarantee Me A Productive Day
1. Waking up early
I used to sleep in until 8:45 AM — 10:00 AM and I quickly realized that my most valuable time was when everybody were at sleep.
Between 5:00 AM and 8:00 AM, it’s really quiet which allow me to be less distracted and more focused.
Quick tip: start with waking up 15 minutes earlier than your usual time. Then, gradually adjust yourself.
2. Visualization for the day
As soon as I wake up, I’ll jump in the shower. I’ll start visualizing what a “perfect day” would look like to me and how I would like to feel by the end of the end.
Just seeing myself being productive while applying some basic affirmation sets my mind in the right direction for the day and I already feel confident about the tasks a head.
3. Water and healthy breakfast
One of the first thing you want to do before drinking your first coffee or even before eating your breakfast is drinking at least 500 ml of water.
When we wake up our body is really dehydrated and also your brain is composed of 73% water. So if you want it to work properly during the day, make sure to stay hydrated.
Next, I eat a light and healthy breakfast. I used to eat a ton of fat like bacon, in the morning, and I realized overtime that it was slowing down my production for the next 2 hours because I felt “heavier” and my body had a harder time digesting it.
Instead now, I eat healthy fruits with 3 white eggs.
4. Planning the day in a journal
I always take 10 to 15 minutes to plan out the day to make sure I know where I’m doing. If you done have any tasks wrote down on a journal or something similar, your brain is gonna have a hard time focusing.
I also write down my goals every single morning in my journal.
And finally, my first 2 hours of work are on the hardest task that I have to do during the day because we only have a small amount of will power during the day.
I just make sure to use it on the most valuable activities.
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed these 4 little hacks of my morning routine.
