Today we're gonna make sure you have a both inspiring and highly productive morning. These are the two pillars that will make you wake up so let's take it from the top...
First of all, one of the absolute top benefits of waking up early is to be able to have a productive morning. A morning filled with accomplishments, success and great fun! This will provide you with a great feeling lasting the entire day.
When you have already done something real early on - whether it is exercising, writing a blog post or learning how to dance - you might notice that you get a strong sense of accomplishment.
This feeling will pretty much erase all of that normal stress of the day. You can relax without pressure and you can build on that early success. In short:
"You will be ahead of the day, instead of letting the day be ahead of you".
Whatever happens later that day, at least you accomplished something real in the early morning hours.
Second of all, I have always been stressing people about the importance of having a set morning routine. A routine that motivates you to wake up early. So when you choose how exactly to have a productive morning it's vital that you choose an activity that truly inspires you.
I mean, you can fulfill the productivity goal above by just starting to work extra early but it's unlikely that that will motivate you deep enough to become an early riser.
Unless you have the job of your dreams of course ;-)
So in summary, you want to choose a morning activity that is both productive AND inspiring. That will make sure you first wake up early and then ride on that accomplishment throughout the day. Awesome, right? :-)
So what can you do in the morning then? Here are 10 suggestions that all fulfill the goal of being productive as well as inspiring:
Remember that this activity of course doesn't have to be your entire morning routine. You can include a lot more, but you need at least one that will both motivate you and be productive.
So set a plan for what to do. It doesn't have to be the same each day, but be clear on what you're gonna do once you're up - it's vital!
If you are unable to decide exactly what to do, then you can ask yourself a couple of questions...
So in conclusion:
If you manage to find one that fits, then you're golden =)
